Seat & Comfort
As Rocking chairs are intended to provide a suitable seating place, choose the one which has supportive attributes.
Parents/Caretakers need to hold the baby in the rocking chair until he/she got adjusted to it. Wide arm rests help parents to rest their hands on them while holding their loved ones. And also the rocker should offer back support as well as head support which enables the baby to shift positions. The seat padding material should be skin-friendly and soft.
So, the rocker should be comfortable to both baby and parent/caretaker.
The frame should be sturdy as it needs to support the baby. Generally, the frame is made of metal or wood. Wooden ones are too heavy for the baby’s capacity. Frames made of metals are good to use. They are weightless and attractive. There should be blunt edges and parts to avoid any injuries. The frame determines the bounce rate and portability of the rocker. To save space, choose a rocker which can be folded and stored, when not in use.
To make it fit for outdoors, choose the one which is painted with a weather-resistant finish.
Babyhood witness diaper overflow and drools. Many parents find it difficult to clean the padding material. Choose the one which is washable and can absorb the wetness from the baby’s skin as it leads to rashes.
The safety is the important thing which has to be considered. The rocker should comply with the safety standards of the country. Generally, they will be bouncing all the time. So, look for the one which is coupled with secure straps. The height and the weight of the baby have their say in the selection of the rocker. Choose a mat for a baby rocker to avoid accidents on slippery surfaces and also it should be placed in a flat area. Use it in accessible areas where everyone in the family can monitor the baby’s activity. Place it away from hazardous areas. By referring manuals, select a Baby rocking chair which matches the profile of the baby.
