The nursery design process is fraught with so many decisions and the glider you select will likely be one of your biggest and most important investments.

Since launching The Glider as our first-ever product, we have since debuted a selection of seating options to fit various lifestyles and considerations. The goal of this guide is to take the guesswork out of the selection process. Read on to figure out which glider is best for your (and your family’s) needs.

1. Consider The Features

The nursery design process is fraught with so many decisions and the glider you select will likely be one of your biggest and most important investments. Since launching The Glider as our first-ever product, we have since debuted a selection of seating options to fit various lifestyles and considerations.

The goal of this guide is to take the guesswork out of the selection process. Read on to figure out which glider is best for your (and your family’s) needs.

2. Think About How You’ll Use It 

While it may be challenging to know exactly how you’ll use your glider, a few considerations can help you limit down your options. For example, if you have another child or are expecting twins, an extra wide seat is a must.

And if you plan to spend time in the nursery with other people in addition to your baby (ex: family story time), or if you plan to place your glider away from the door, you may want a chair that swivels so you can easily look around the room.

One aspect worth noting is that The Glider and The Glider Plus don’t glide when they’re in a complete or nearly-complete reclining position. If it’s important that you’re able to glide while fully reclined, we recommend investing in an ottoman. We have three options that offer varying price-points and features.

3. Review Your Room Layout

Your space may strongly influence the glider you choose. For example, if you are not planning to place your chair near a power source, you may want to opt for the manual glider. If you have a smaller space, The Swivel may be your best option. Consider your complete nursery layout to determine where the glider will live.

Some find that placing it closest to the crib can ease the transition feeding and bedtime, while others prefer to create a dedicated feeding nook that feels like a separate space in the nursery.

4. Consult Your Budget

We’re parents ourselves and know how important having a budget is - especially when it comes to raising kids. While all of our products are designed and built to be great long-term investments, the prices vary according to the features included in each option.

It’s worth looking at all of our options (chart above and descriptions and price points below) to figure out which glider is the best fit for you.

The Nurture& Glider Collection

Now that you have your key factors in mind, here’s the run-down on each Nurture& seating option, including available features and price-point.

The Glider Plus

Our piece de resistance, the Glider Plus is equipped with every feature – and then some. The Glider Plus is the only glider on the market that offers details like a power recliner and smooth swivel, built-in USB charger, automated lumbar support, and adjustable headrest for ultimate comfort and maximal customization.

The Glider

Our original and bestselling product, The Glider combines a sleek design with modern features guaranteed to ease those frequent rockings and feedings. Features like a power recline, adjustable headrest, built-in USB charging port and adjustable headrest creates a comfortable experience, while stain-resistant fabric ensures durability against life’s messes.

The Manual Glider

A less pricey and more classic option, The Manual Glider is great for those who are looking for a power-free alternative to our other nursery gliders. The Manual Glider features the same stain-resistant fabric and sleek silhouette as The Glider and The Glider Plus and provides a manual recline option that is activated by pulling a lever on the side of the chair. If you are short on power sources in your nursery or are looking for a more budget-conscious alternative, The Manual Glider is the perfect solution for your nursery needs.

The Swivel

If you’re shorter on space or looking for a less-traditional looking nursery glider, The Swivel may fit the bill. Offering a unique, design-forward aesthetic but with baby-friendly features like a wide seat, built-in USB charger and stain-resistant fabric, The Swivel does not have a recline option but a matching Ottoman (with hidden storage!) is available for purchase should you seek a place to kick up your feet while you glide.
