With your new arrival, you'll be spending quite a few hours nursing whether in your own room or nursery, so it's essential that you have a comfortable chair to sit in. Of course, any comfortable chair could be used, but a specially designed nursing chair will be engineered to provide a smooth rocking or gliding motion.
This has two real benefits: it will help to soothe your child, helping him to relax back to sleep after a feed. Just as important, the movement means that your posture is constantly being changed without effort, helping to prevent strains, cramps, and muscle stiffness by sitting in the same position too often and for too long.
Most of the nursing chairs listed here come with a matching stool, also with the rocking mechanism, to provide a completely comfortable and relaxing way of nursing.
