Now, prepare your sitting area with amenities for yourself and some sort of white-noise maker for your baby. You may be in your rocking chair for a while, so be sure you have something to eat and drink at hand, and something to do like watch television or read a book or newspaper set up on a stand. A quietly playing TV, or the hum of a fan or air-conditioner are soothing sounds that your newborn will be comforted by. Finally, get to rocking! Cradle your baby on your shoulder or chest and maintain a nice and gentle rocking motion. You are going to find out two things here. The first is that your infant will fall asleep quickly, and rest soundly and happily. And the second is that you yourself will fall in love with your new rocking chair. Adults can be comforted by the sway of a rocking chair too! You'll find yourself relaxing and enjoying the company of your baby like never before.
A rocking chair will also give her new sensations in motion. This will be a learning experience, like the first time she took the swing on your lap. With a kids rocking chair, it is safer and she can sit herself on it without much assist from you. She can use the same chair while leafing through her board book, draw pictures or play \"grandma.\" But the best thing of all is feeling being gently rocked as you have rocked her to sleep hundreds of times.
A rocking chair is one of those things that has become a timeless piece of artwork that just outshines most other kinds of chairs. You don't see people fighting over which chair they get to sit in, unless of course the chair in question is a rocking chair. They are just so comfortable that everyone wants to be able to sit in one if it's available.
Babies are delicate creatures that need a great quantity of TLC, food, and plenty of sleep. Did you know that infants under 3 months are supposed to sleep up to 16 hours a day? If yours is having trouble sleeping, you might need to find yourself a comfy rocking chair so you can sit and rock your child to sleep. Using a rocking chair is a surefire remedy that will get your newborn snoring contentedly within minutes. A few weeks after returning from the hospital, our newborn daughter became colicky. Looking for an effective way to help her sleep better, my husband and I bought a white wicker rocking chair for our bedroom, and an outdoor rocking chair for our screened-in porch. These chairs helped us tremendously. Without them, I think we could have gone a bit bonkers. I mean, nothing else helped us lull our baby girl to sleep quite as effectively as those two chairs!
Michael Thonet a German craftsman made the first 'Bentwood' rocking chair in 1860. This design was unlike others of it's time, it was lightweight and graceful. He used steamed wood which made them very affordable as well as beautiful and had great success with them in Europe. During the 1920's a new style came on the market which made them even more useful, the 'Folding' version, which when used in the garden could be folded up and taken indoors in bad weather. With the arrival of the automobile it was useful for picnics and other outdoor activities. After this, this type of chair virtually 'stood still' until the 1950's when Sam Maloof began making deluxe rocking chairs, which are different again, as their rockers are ski-shaped.
