Baxton Studio Rocker
If you love serious design (like the Eames original this rocker is based on), but don't want to spend a fortune, this compact rocker may be for you. It's a great addition to a modern nursery, and let's face it – it just looks cool. That said, the lack of padding means this isn't where you'll want to spend endless hours rocking, feeding, and cuddling. Consider it for short stretches.
What to watch out for: The plastic seating will hold up well to wear and tear, but it's definitely not cushy enough to be your primary snuggling spot.
How much: $115
Stork Craft Hoop Glider
For the most bang for your buck, choose this moderately priced glider. It has the look and features of more expensive models, and includes a matching ottoman. Plus, some smart designer decided to make the armrest covers removable, so you can stick them in the wash after any spills or spit-up incidents.
Watch to watch out for: A few parents say it squeaks when rocking, and that the dimensions could be roomier.
How much: $199
Dutailier Ultramotion Glider
Dutailier is a big name in gliders, and their models don't come cheap. But parents swear these chairs are more comfortable and sturdier than more affordable look-alikes. Dutailier also gets high marks for the multiple recline position and a smooth, extra-long gliding motion that calms both babies and parents. And the padding is very plush.
Watch to watch out for: Some of the basic models don't include a locking function, which prevents older children from getting pinched fingers or toes if they play with the glider.
How much: $380 to $600 depending on fabric; ottoman often sold separately
Babyletto Nara Glider
A beautiful, modern glider, the Nara will look at home in the living room or family room after it has outlived its use in the nursery. Clean lines and solid construction earn this chair major points, while the deep seat and high back make it perfect for bigger and taller parents. Once your child is too old for feeding sessions, this chair is ideal for story time – most kids and adults can sit side by side and enjoy a comfy fit.
What to watch out for: It's a splurge, but its extended use and versatility can make the Nara a wise investment.
How much: $629, $949 with ottoman
Shermag Glider Rocker Combo
This straightforward chair-and-ottoman set includes some nice benefits: It locks in multiple positions and is widely praised for its quiet and smooth gliding motion. The seat and armrests are well padded, making this a good choice for parents looking for comfort as well as a traditional look and solid wood construction.
What to watch out for: It's on the narrow side, and parents dislike the complicated assembly. The seat locks in multiple positions but doesn't fully recline.
How much: $341
