What is the size of your nursery?

If your nursery is not big a wooden rocking chair would be best for you. On the other hand if your nursery is large you can go for upholstered rocking chair which takes more space.

Do you have other babies in the family?

If you have small children who does crawling then you should not opt for wooden rocking chair. This is because they are more likely to harm their fingers with the moving parts of the rocking chair. However an upholstered rocking chair is a better option in this situation as it has a covering around its bottom part which does not allow the children to get closer.

Check your weight

If you are overweight then a wooden glider is not for you as it would not be able to meet your requirements.  The seats of a wooden rocking chair are narrow as compared to other rocking chairs.

Nursery room design

It is better if you have selected some design for your nursery room. A wooden rocking chair along with ottoman will give a different look than a combination of an ottoman and upholstered rocking chair. The upholstered rocking chair has more elegance and class as compared to wooden rocking chair which is narrow and gives an ordinary look.

Rocker and swivel VS back and forth rocking?

Wooden rocking chairs are known to rock back and forth while the upholstered rocking chair can swivel as well as recline positions. It is therefore better to sleep or feed your baby while seating on the wooden rocking chair.

Keep or sell the furniture

If you buy a wooden rocking chair then once your baby has grown it would not be of much use. In addition most wooden rocking chairs do not match with other furniture. On the other hand upholstered wooden rocking chairs come with cushion and covers due to which they can match well with the furniture.
