Nursery chairs – our pick of the best

10 images

A lovely, comfy nursery chair is the most important item of furniture you can buy for your baby’s nursery, second only to a crib of course. Because, let’s face it, you’re going to be spending a lot of time sitting in it, whether you’re breastfeeding or bottle feeding, reading bedtime stories, or fighting your drooping eyelids at 2am while waiting for the crying to stop.

Rocking chairs and glider chairs are an excellent choice, as the rocking, gliding motion helps to soothe both baby and you. But there’s also a lot to be said for a sturdy, dependable chair you can sink/slump into in the small hours of the morning.

Choose something well-made and stylish now and it will outlast its nursing chair days to be used in a hallway, bedroom or living room once your little one is all grown up. Be inspired by our pick of the best nursery chairs to suit all styles.
