Onto the Glider...

The baby related purchases are really starting to make a dent over here. (And we haven't even ordered the crib/dresser yet!)

The next on my list of must haves is a glider. I have a feeling I'll be spending A LOT of time in this bad boy... so not only do I want it to be pretty - it has to be comfortable. Add to that the fact that this will become extra seating in our home once the baby outgrows it, and you've got a recipe for stressed out Meghan.

Here is my absolute favorite glider ever made. It's the Carter Chair by Room and Board. I am in love with everything about it except for it's ridiculously high price tag. *sigh*


Babies 'R Us has a mildly similar (and much cheaper) version on their website - but I just don't know. I don't associate BRU with the highest upholstery quality... However, the cheap price and 15% off coupon I have may make it worth while!
The only other remotely doable option I've found is by Best Chair. Now, it's not quite as a sleek or streamlined as the Room and Board chair. But holy comfort, Batman. The downside of course is that it screams "baby" and is still on the higher side price side.


Oiy Vey. I'll never be a good decision maker!

We got a very similar one at BRU (it's not on their website or I'd post a link for you)... ultimately, comfort was the deciding factor. Love the options!

It may be too late for your purchase, but have you heard of the monte luca glider? I love it!!!
Everyone I recommend it to is so happy.

Which did you end up choosing? I also like the Room and Board glider and since I plan to order other furniture from there, I thought I'd save on shipping.
