Rockermama™ on POPSUGAR
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?
