    Best glider
    At first glance, it might seem that every glider in your local baby store is the same, but this Status Roma Glider has a few extra features that makes it stand above the rest. Its nice, high back gives you plenty of space to lean back and rest your head during those nighttime feedings. Pockets on the side give you places to stash your phone, magazines or a few burp cloths so you'll have everything you need when you sit down with Baby.

    Easiest to clean
    Whether you love it or hate it, the Eames Style RAR Rocking Arm Lounge Chair definitely is a conversation piece. Your rocking chair will see it all, from spitup to diaper explosions. This chair wins our award for easiest to clean because you can simply wipe it off. No muss, no fuss, no trips to the washing machine at 3 a.m? We're sold.

    Most modern
    We love the clean lines of this Nurseryworks Bungalow Rocker and that it doesn't scream "nursery." After you have logged numerous hours with your little one, you can easily transition this chair to another space in your home.

    Very vintage
    If you are a mama with a passion for upcycling and DIYing, you might find your perfect rocking chair somewhere other than the local baby store. Check out your grandparents' home, garage sales or local thrift shops to find something that you love and is sturdy. The nice thing about upcycling a chair is that you can paint it to match your nursery theme exactly, and you can add fabric cushions to maximize the comfort level. Check out how Sherry from Young House Love revamped a rocking chair.

    Out of the box
    When searching for your rocking chair, keep an open mind. Just because it was originally designed for living room use doesn't mean you can't drag it into the nursery. A La-Z-Boy reclining rocker is super comfortable and a great place to sleep during nights when your baby is sick or extra fussy.

    Most comfortable
    This Small Swivel Rocker and Ottoman from Pottery Barn makes us want to grab our littles and snuggle up for storytime. No matter what rocker you choose, comfort should always win. When it is 3 a.m., you have a teething baby and you haven't slept four consecutive hours in more than a week, a comfortable rocking chair is much more valuable than one that matches your nursery decor.

    Best for multiples
    If you are preparing for twins or more, you will need to increase the size of your rocking chair. This Eddie Bauer Chair and Half Rocker will keep your little ones from fighting for lap and chair space. The extra room will allow for more comfortable nursing, and the high back will support you as you support them.

    Best recliner
    This Little Castle Monaco Recliner is sure to help you and Baby get the most rest possible. We love all the options: a reclining feature, a gliding motion and even extra-high arm rests to help with nursing. Admittedly, it is a little pricey, but we think we could easily transition this beauty somewhere else in the home after Baby outgrows it.

    Best swivel
    This Babyletto Madison Swivel Glider had us at "hello." It glides and swivels, which can make navigating with a sleeping baby easier. Its curved shape can fit in a corner of the smallest nurseries, and it adds the perfect chic touch. We love that it's PBDE and formaldehyde-free, too. Just remember to purchase a footstool or ottoman to go with it if you want a place to prop up your feet.
