Best Glider for Twins: Our Top 6 Picks for 2021!

| | , ,

If you’re looking for a rocker or glider for twins, you have twice as many things to consider and half as many options. Luckily, we’ve done the research, and narrowed them down to the widest, coziest, and most stylish so you can “rockabye-babies” as you snuggle up with your twins.

Do You Even Need a Glider for Your Nursery? 

It depends. While a glider in the nursery certainly “completes the look”, not all parents want that extra piece of furniture. But if you’re still on the rocking fence, here are a few things to consider:

  1. All moms like a set spot to settle in and feed their babies. For some moms that spot is just on the bed or on the couch, but why not have a comfy glider for twins to feed your babies and relax? It’s better than having to clear the couch of a bunch of junk or calling hubby to bring over a pillow. 
  2. Babies love rocking. Honestly, rocking and gliding is like a “get calm” switch for your twins. Couple that with nursing, and you’ll have cuddly, cozy babies falling asleep right in your arms. 
  3. Your glider’s not just for the nursery. If it’s stylish and cozy, it will become a permanent fixture in your home that will be everyone’s favorite seat way beyond the nursing years. 

Glider for Twins Look-fors:

  • Is it wide enough? If you want this glider for twins, remember, you’ll likely be sitting with your twin breastfeeding pillow or two pillows PLUS the babies. 
  • Is it comfy? What do you love about your favorite couch? Think about the height of the back, the armrests, whether you like it with an ottoman, and don’t sway too far from what’s tried and true. 
  • Will it fit in your space? The rockers and gliders for twins are naturally bigger. Make sure it actually fits where you want it to go. 
  • Do you want a recliner? While reclining chairs are a dime a dozen, there are surprisingly few recliner gliders that are wide enough to nurse twins. (We got you covered with this list though!) 
  • Will you keep it beyond the nursing years? Unlike a bassinet, this piece will serve you for years and years. So make sure you love it! Each glider on this list is neutral – so it will fit in with your existing decor, and stylish – so you’ll love it in any room of the house.

Staying Safe on the Glider for Twins. 

Before you jump into the reviews, remember to practice safe rocking! Don’t fall asleep while nursing – so you don’t accidentally drop the babies or slump over them. Never let babies lie on the glider unattended. Ever! 

Now, on to the fun stuff! 

Our 6 Favorite Rockers and Gliders for Twins 

Nursery Works Ami Bassinet and Rocker

Why we love it

This gorgeous piece will not only help you soothe your babies, it will be the whole family’s favorite loveseat for years to come! The genius design has a seat and a bassinet so you can let one baby enjoy the calming swaying motion while you hold the other. Once you’re past the bassinet years, you can convert that spot to another seat. 

Despite being a rocker, the ultra-modern design is a showstopper statement piece perfect for any room in your home.
