When it comes time to buying nursery room must haves for a new baby, no matter who you ask or what you read, you'll likely see the same list of items: crib, diaper pail, rocking chair. When it came time for me to assess these items for my own growing family's needs, I had to put my foot down. I couldn't argue the crib (that's where my daughter would go) and I couldn't figure out a workaround for a diaper pail (that's where my daughter's poop would go), but the chair, the bulky, slipcovered monstrosity of swaying furniture? Absolutely not. I would not be sitting in one of those. My logic was clear: I don't sit in one now; why on earth would I want to sit on one once I had a baby?
I understood the argument. Rocking has tons of benefits. You can soothe babies and increase mother-child bonding, it's relaxing, and there are even cardiovascular wins to be had. But my nursery room was tiny. The thought of buying another massive thing that I'd almost certainly knock into in the middle of the night was too much to ignore.
And there are plenty of new parents who'd rather not spend a fortune on buying baby gear. Rocking chairs can get very expensive. And you know you can't get the chair without the matching ottoman! This is why when I discovered the ReadyRocker ($149), I nodded in excitement.
It's a completely portable device that enables you to create a rocking experience against just about any hard surface: a chair, a couch, a poolside lounger . . . even an airplane seat. So you no longer have to feel trapped inside of a nursery if you want to rock your baby. Just set it down and — voilà! — you have a rocking chair at a fraction of the price. Here's how it works.
