Glider/Rocker big enough for 2 babies?

What kind of rocker/glider did you have in your nursery for twins? Did you have an extra wide one ? Where did you buy it?

Re: Glider/Rocker big enough for 2 babies?

  • Good question, I have been wondering about this too!
  • We bought a leather recliner from Sam's Club b/c everyone told us that the gliders would be too small. Nursing was a huge struggle for us, so I didn't use it as much as I thought I would b/c I was pumping so much!

  • I have a regular sized upholstered rocker/glider. My kiddos are 2 and they still sit on my lap and read books every night. I don't think an extra wide version would be that helpful for feeding/comforting/sleeping unless you had a 2nd adult who could sit next to you and manage the 2nd baby. We do still have many sweet one-on-one moments in our glider, though!

  • I have a "Best" brand upholstered swivel-rocker-recliner. I never tandem nursed, but I have snuggled both babies in it many times. Now at almost one year old we still use it every night for storytime and before bed bottles and snuggles. I bought mine at BBB with a 20% coupon.

  • I am looking too. Some of the twin blogs recommend getting a "chair and a half" or testing out gliders with cushioned low arms with your twin nirsing pillow. I have found a few chair and a half rocker options on amazon or walmart but nothing in stores yet that doesnt cost a fortune

    Mine looks pretty much like this: http://www.besthf.com/best/Furniture/Recliners/Medium/IRVINGTON1/Customize although my handle is on the inside of the armrest instead of outside (helpful when you are cuddling babies and want to pull it out without leaning over the side)

    My BBB had a whole bunch on display in the store (though I dont' see them on their website). To buy you actually had to special order it and you got to select your own fabric colors. Mine was supposed to take 8-12 weeks to come, but it actually only took about a month. I thought it was a great deal.image

  • This is the rocker I got and still use every night. It's a Lazy Boy and it still in excellent shape. I didn't tandem nurse (didn't nurse at all thanks to useless boobs) but I did give many, many bottles in it.

  • I got a love seat from Rooms to go. I tandem nurse and all the rockers I tried with my pillow didn't fit. You also have to have somewhere to lay the babies when you're getting set-up. The love seat has been perfect for us!
