We were about to buy a glider, and my mom recommended against it.
She said that she just liked to sit on the couch (and watch TV...which I'm hoping to largely avoid while nursing but we'll see), and that I would be bored on a glider, alone in the nursery, and that I would never use it. Also, she said I might want to breastfeed in bed--not sure if I will or not (husband would probably prefer not!). This got me nervous because the glider I'm considering is expensive, and I don't want to buy it and not use it!
On the other hand, it seems like I might want a glider. My nursery is not near the couch/living room so it might be a hassle to bring the baby downstairs, and I'm not sure how comfortable it would be to nurse on the couch. I also have an old rocking chair or some other chairs I could use, but I'm not sure how comfortable those would be for long periods of time.
Any recommendations for whether a glider is really needed and whether you actually used it?
