14 Small Nursery Glider And Rocker Reviews (Irresistible and in-Stock!)

| | ,

Crib, check. Bassinet, check. Glider? If your baby’s room is more of a baby nook, you may be wondering if a rocker may be too much. But there are actually plenty of small nursery glider options that will fit right in. You won’t regret this nursery addition as you’re comforting your little one… in comfort. 

So let’s dive in on the best small nursery gliders and rockers that are NOT on backorder. 

Do I even need a glider in my small nursery?

Whether you have a small nursery or a vast expanse for your baby, it’s not a bad idea to question what you do and don’t need. But a glider will not be one of those purchases that makes you go “why did I even buy this?” 

Here’s why: 

Babies absolutely love being rocked. Many moms will tell you that their little one won’t nap unless they’re in motion. In fact, for some babies, it’s the only thing that puts them to sleep. So which one would you rather? Carrying your little one around to help them sleep or putting your feet up on a glider? 

You’ll probably keep your glider past the baby years. A rocker or glider can be a statement piece beyond the nursery. In fact, your kids will probably love playing and rocking themselves on a small glider once they can climb up on it by themselves. 

You need your own spot in the nursery. You walk into the nursery and want to linger for a minute or two. Where do you go? Crawl into the crib? Sit on the floor? Why not have your own designated mama chair instead?

Speaking of pieces you won’t regret, we also appreciate having a gliding ottoman which will let you put your feet up and keep gliding. 

Rocker vs. Glider For The Nursery

While we may use the words rocker and glider almost interchangeably, there is a difference. Rockers have a curved base (think of those old-school rocking chairs) and gliders move back and forth on rails. 

Whichever you choose to go with, there are plenty of striking options for a nursery big or small that are ultra-comfy for both you and your little one.
