Spending prime time with baby rocking back and forth may turn out to be one of your best memories. Baby won't remember, but you sure will. Although we do recommend that you invest in a comfortable chair, splurging on an expensive glider upholstered to match the nursery is probably a mistake. We like the idea of an all-wood rocker like the one your grandmother used to have in the den. It takes up less space than a fancy upholstered glider chair, and cleanup is a breeze.
