Did you have a glider or rocker in your baby's nursery? Or, did you prefer neither?

When I first decorated my DD's nursery, we put a glider in her room. But, when she was only weeks old, we removed it. I knew I was not going to sit in a pitch black room at 3am, rocking a baby to sleep without falling asleep myself. We have a rocker/recliner in the living room that I used on the rare occasion DD woke up in the middle of the night. I *had* to have to TV on (low volume) to stay awake while I fed, soothe, and rocked her.

And, I do prefer rockers over gliders. They're just more comfortable, imo.

I had the same sleepiness issue with the glider in my little one's nursery in the beginning. I left the glider in her room, though, because had it come into the living room, I would have been constantly ousting either my husband or his clothing from it. [What is it about some guys that make them leave their clothes everywhere?] I just brought her in and sat on the couch when necessary.

Now that she's older (3 months), I like having the glider in her room. She's started fighting sleep a little bit so when I see her showing signs of being tired, I take her into her room, dim the lights, and rock with her a little. I'm not so sleep deprived anymore so it's soothing, but not sleep-inducing.

We have a glider that can rotate on its base. I like the rotating part because it makes it easy for me to pivot to better reach the switch on the lamp cord or the table on the other side with the paper towels.

I have a rocker in DD#2's room, but didn't have either in DD#1's. I didn't miss it. I don't htink I'll even use the one I have much for #2. They're kinda a waste of space IMO... cause in a few short months baby is crawling all over his/her room and rocker is just in the way

Now, see, I would have not problem ousting Dh from the recliner/rocker to rock the baby. And, I guess it's because we use our recliner in the living room so much, but Dh doesn't leave anything on it. I *had* to have a rocker to be able to put both of my kids to sleep many of nights.
