My first memory of rocking chairs is when I used to travel down to my Grandparents house for a visit. We would sit in the living room, rock back and forth and catch up on what had been happening in our lives since that last time were together. It was a relaxing, special time that I will always remember. We weren`t worried about schedules, places to be, or what chores needed to be done. We just took a few minutes to step away from the stress of everything and enjoy our time together. Grandma had her rocking chair, and Grandpa has his. They also had one for the grandkids and my brothers and I always fought over who got to sit in it. It was your classic style chair for rocking just like the adult ones, only smaller. We felt just like grown-ups, rocking right along with them. The rocking motion was rhythmic and soothing, seeming to have a calming effect on any child who sat in it.
No one really knows how much work goes into making a rocking chair. It may just seem like a regular chair placed on curved wood, but it`s more than that. The back of the chair must be slighted just right or the person will tip. The legs of the "chair" are much shorter and have to be just the right angle. Finally, the slop in the runners and the placement of the legs has to be just right or the chair won`t be stable.
It wasn`t until we were expecting our first little one that I thought about rocking chairs again. Sure I had sat in many a chair since I was a child, but never thought about buying one for our household. Having a newborn means sleepless nights and tired Mommies and Daddies. Anything you can do to help soothe that new little baby and get him to sleep is a blessing. Having a chair that helped us rock our child to sleep during that time made our job so much easier. I can remember spending hours upon hours rocking my little one to sleep, only to be back in the same chair an hour or two later. This time was special and I look back on that time like it was yesterday. I`m glad I had that one-on-one time to bond with my baby and just watch him fall asleep with the rocking motion. Even today, as my kids are older, they still will crawl up into my lap for a snuggle in our favorite chair. They never tire of the way it makes them feel, and this chair is always a favorite place for story time before bed.
For anyone who is a parent or just likes to pass time on the porch, a rocking chair is a must. The swaying back and forth can be so soothing that it will literally put a person to sleep. That`s why many expecting mommies will purchase a rocking chair. During last night feedings or disturbances, rocking the child will calm them and they will eventually fall right to sleep. Within minutes, most children will calm down thanks to the motion of a rocking chair. It is definitely a nursery must.
