After all, there may be other children in the future, and your faithful recliner will be as useful and comfortable as ever for all of you.
If you are a new mother and first time owner of a nursery chair recliner, there's lots to consider, and it is wise to purchase from a highly-regarded store such as La-Z-Boy, where you can visit a showroom for a first-hand recliner fitting. Here are some tips to get your search for the perfect nursery chair started.
- Show off your style
Your nursery room, bedroom, or living room can be adapted for individual expression. If you feel you have a flair for interior design or decorating, now is the perfect time to transform the room with a classic or contemporary recliner.
There are a huge number of ways you can customise your new recliner. A nursery recliner can be a statement furnishing, where tailored options include swivel or high base, left or right handle choices, and wood tones for matching other furniture in the room.
- Fit for size
Your nursery chair space should be big enough for swivel chair, glider chair, or traditional rocking chair motion. After all you will have your new baby with you, and you will need room to grow together. Measure your room prior to purchasing to ensure your nursery chair is the perfect fit. You may have a changing table, Ottoman, nursing pillows, and other accessories to negotiate also.
Make sure to take your height and size into consideration. The perfect recliner is one that adapts and fits your body shape. Visit in-store to experience the benefits first hand. You can prioritise your physical needs such as lumbar support, and select seat cushions, armrests, and footrests that deliver maximum comfort and relaxation.
- Personalise materials and patterns
Another way to showcase your designer style. At La-Z-Boy, you get to choose from dozens of leather recliner materials, and more than 50 fabric upholstery materials. You can mix-and-match your nursery room, or make a classy contrast with special textures, patterns, and colours.
It's worth taking stain-resistant options into consideration, such as iClean fabrics and washable/cleanable materials. The best nursery glider or rocker should provide comfy cuddle space on a material that feels good against your body.
- Tailor a feature-rich experience
Feature-rich reclining chairs are in vogue, but it is worth focusing on the innovations that will benefit you and baby most. Today's nursery chairs can include a phone USB charger, cup holder, side pockets, and safety locking mechanisms.
A major recliner brand will have all the above features and more, including silent gliding motion mechanisms that won't disturb a peacefully sleeping baby. Choose from backrest styles such as wingback, and specially strengthened padded armrests that never sag or go out of shape.
Therapeutic Benefits of Recliners for New Parents
Fabric upholstery and leather recliners are well-known for encouraging better health and wellbeing at the touch of a button or flick or a lever. Some couches never really go out of style, And recliners are now standard furniture in New Zealand homes.
Raising a child isn't always easy, so now is a good time to pamper yourself with a nursery recliner that offers superior cushioning for lower back support and the rocking or swivel glider motion you are looking for. Here are some important therapeutic advantages your new recliner can deliver.

Your perfect nursery chair should relieve aches and pains with stress-free rocking, reclining, and relaxing.
Improved circulation - Inflammation of the legs and feet can be a problem. Check out recliners that can be lowered into weightless horizontal position. Your recliner should easily adjust into comfortable recline for improving circulation while nursing.
