About Rocking Chairs
Waaaaaaaah! Everyone plugs their ears as you grab the baby and make a beeline for the rocking chair. When nothing else works, a few minutes in the rocking chair with mama does wonders for a cranky baby. It is no surprise that many rocking chairs are specifically designed for the nursery. Of course, wooden rocking chairs are also perfect for the porch or next to the fireplace. There are two basic kinds of rockers. The old-fashioned kind has a curved wooden base. The other kind has a slightly more complicated base that stays in one place as the chair rocks on supports that connect to the base. This is called a glider rocking chair, and it is safer for households with babies and pets because there is no danger of a little foot, hand, or paw getting caught under the rocker. eBay has an immense collection of both traditional rocking chairs and gliders in a variety of materials and colors to suit any kind of décor.
