Many new moms favor this type of chair over the much newer glider style chairs. It could be because it reminds them of their mom or grandma comforting them when they were young or maybe they prefer them just because of their classic good looks. Oak indoor rocking chairs also have the benefit of easy clean up which is critical in a nursery.
The slow rocking motion of the chair provides great soothing comfort and allows both the parent and child to go to sleep and enables both of them get the much needed rest. They are very prevalent across America and are available in most hospital delivery and maternity rooms.
