A reader on Tumblr asked what glider or rocking chair I would recommend for plus size mommas, since I am one myself...
I was on a mission to find the perfect glider suitable for plus
size preggos…The glider we originally registered for was not only
obscenely expensive, but did not have the highest of weight capacities.
The last thing we wanted was to spend $400 on a chair that we could
expect to fall apart on us because it wasn’t meant to hold me in the
After checking countless forums, manufacturers websites and reviews
online (not to mention comparison shopping at different websites to get
the best deal), I was able to find this:
I had it for almost 2 entire years before we got rid of it. It held up very well, even with daily use! It was super
comfortable and a life saver when it came to overnight nursings. I never used the ottoman much, to be honest, just because it feels weird to
me to rock back and forth with my feet up, but otherwise I'm very happy
with our purchase of this glider!
I'd love to hear about any other suggestions for plus size friendly
furniture or baby gear. Let me know if there's something you can't live
without as a plus sized momma!
