So do you guys remember back in May when I was freaking out about what kind of chair to get for the nursery? Well I thought I would put my two cents in and let you know how I feel about it now. After much debate I decided to go ahead and order rocker legs for my H-Frame vintage Eames chair off of ebay and to accompany the rocker I purchased a grey knitted pouf from CB2 to increase the overall comfort level, and guess what?? I am totally happy with how things turned out!
The rock on the Eames chair is really nice, that’s my favorite part about the whole thing, a nice smooth rock. There is obviously not a high neck/head rest on this chair, but that’s okay, I haven’t found myself needing it at all even on the most tiredest of nights. I actually think not having a place to rest my head keeps me more awake and alert for those late night feedings. The arms are in a good spot for me too, I think it’s actually really comfortable. I usually rest my arms and cradle Gus while I feed him a bottle. This also worked really well for while I was nursing too. The only thing I would change is possibly purchasing a small sheep skin from Ikea or cushion to sit on. There’s nothing like getting a baby to sleep only to wake him because your thighs are stuck to your chair. Not a cool mom move at all.
The grey pouf from CB2 is also awesome, it is the perfect size and does and great job of being a foot rest. It rocks with the rocker and make the rocker feel even more glider like. I love it. That’s not the only awesome thing about this pouf, did you know it also become a makeshift step stool? Every morning Finn pushes it over to the edge of the crib, climbs up and looks in to say good morning to his bro. I think it was a great purchase and would recommend it to anyone that was looking for a super functional nursery piece.
Also, the best part is that I LOVE THIS FURNITURE, so when Gus gets older and doesn’t need a rocking chair in his room anymore I can take it back and incorporate it in other rooms in the house. So it’s a win win win all the way around.
