What are the key features to look for in a feeding chair?
When hunting for a breastfeeding nursery chair, focus on comfort, stability and good back support. You'll spend countless hours nursing, so ensure it's a chair you'll love and keeps you comfortable. Another factor to consider is the material the chair is made from - look for something that is easy to clean, so you can quickly take care of any poorly timed spills.
How do I choose the right nursing chair for my needs?
Start by considering the space you’ll place the chair in, your preferred style (will you want a rocking chair for your nursery or a static one?) and any additional features that are must-haves - perhaps you’d like a recline option or additional pockets on the side for storage. This will help you narrow down the right model for you, from the carefully curated selection we offer online.
What's the difference between a nursery rocking chair and a regular feeding chair?
A nursery rocking chair offers a soothing back-and-forth motion, perfect for lulling babies (and sometimes mums) to sleep. Regular feeding chairs might not have this motion, but still provide the needed comfort for nursing sessions.
How do I properly clean and sanitise a feeding chair?
Stick to gentle cleaning agents, especially for fabric parts. Wipe down wooden or metal parts with a damp cloth. Always check care labels and be wary of using harsh chemicals around your baby.
Are there feeding chairs with adjustable height and recline features?
Absolutely. Some modern nursing chairs offer adjustable features, ensuring you find the perfect position for you and your baby. This can also be really helpful if there are multiple people using the chair to settle or feed the baby - they can adjust as needed to ensure they are comfortable when it comes to their turn.
Can I assemble a nursing chair myself, or do I need professional help?
Most nursing chairs come with assembly instructions, and you’ll also be able to find them on our product pages at The Memo. If flat-packs aren't your thing, seeking a hand from a savvy friend or professional is a smart move.
Are there any safety features I should consider when buying a feeding chair?
Look for sturdy construction, non-tip designs, and locking mechanisms, especially for rocking chairs. Safety should always come first when choosing a feeding chair for your nursery.
How long can I expect a high-quality feeding chair to last?
With proper care, a top-notch feeding chair can serve you through multiple children, becoming a cherished piece in your home.
Is it necessary to have armrests on a breastfeeding chair?
While not essential, armrests provide added support during feeding sessions, making it more comfortable to hold your baby for extended periods.
Are there feeding chairs that are easy to move around the house?
Yes, some chairs are designed with portability in mind, featuring lightweight materials or even wheels. Perfect for those who like a change in scenery while nursing your baby.
How much space will a nursery rocking chair typically occupy?
While sizes vary, consider allocating a space of at least one metre by one metre. And remember, you'll need room for that soothing rocking motion too. All our product pages at The Memo include the specs of the completed nursing chairs, so you can check before purchasing how much space you will need.
What accessories should I consider buying with a nursing chair?
Padded cushions, footrests or ottomans for added comfort are all great additions that will elevate the comfort of any nursing chair. Side pockets to store essentials like burp cloths, feeding bottles, and breast pumps are also great accessories.
How can I make sure the feeding chair matches my nursery décor?
Look for chairs with neutral tones or those that come with removable covers, allowing you to switch up the look to match your room's aesthetics.
Are there feeding chairs that can be converted for other uses as the child grows?
Absolutely! Some chairs are designed to evolve, converting into regular or rocking chairs perfect for story time as your child grows.
