I spotted this rocker ($800) shortly after Sandra was born and ordered it because it was the only one I could find with a cool design that looked comfortable. Another bonus is the wide seat that would fit both Sandra and I sitting side-by-side to read books when she gets a little older. At the time, I think my greatest concern was being able to rest my head thanks to the high back and sides (thank goodness those midnight feedings are long gone). Unfortunately, when I ordered it the product was backordered for months, and I wouldn't get it until after the most crucial period that I needed it for Sandra. I still kind of wish we had gotten it! The rocker comes in various colors, and the company also makes many other modern and functional items.
