Good, for a while

My husband and I bought this glider before our first son was born. It was easy to assemble and was fairly comfortable for the price we paid. We enjoyed it for about a month until it started to squeak loudly when we rocked in it. We tried lubricating the moving mechanism, but the squeak stayed and eventually got worse. After about another month it started to have a clunky motion instead of a smooth glide, in addition to the squeaking. Needless to say, after two months of use it wasn’t soothing at all. I tried to claim the warranty on the glider, but Graco said to claim it through La Jobi which makes the chair, and La Jobi said they never heard of the product. Thank goodness for Amazon’s 365 day return on baby products! We sent it back (Amazon even paid the shipping!), and got our money back.

Great glider, easy to set up and looks very good!

We searched for a long time for a Glider, both on and off of amazon.com. We settled on this glider in part due to the reviews it received, the price for the glider, and the brand name.Amazon was stellar as usual with the shipping and handling of the glider. Putting the glider together was a very simple affair. The instructions are clear, and it took me approximately 20 minutes from unboxing the glider to having it fully assembled.It is a very comfortable glider, and the padding on the seat, backrest and arms rests are plush and soft. The gliding aspect of it is flawless, effortless to use, and works like a dream. The arm rests are a great height to rest your arms while holding a baby. The ottoman portion is good, albeit a little clunky to move around with a baby in your arms! The ottoman is not really needed all that much, probably only when you are in the glider for an extended period of time as the chair portion alone is plenty comfortable. I took one star off of the review because of this. Probably a little harsh, and would be better if i could have taken a half of a star away.In conclusion, a great buy from amazon.com for the price, and brand name. It is a solid unit that does what it says.

Great nursing rocker!

We purchased this item in Cherry after getting the Graco Charleston crib and changing table set up in our nursery. They match perfectly. Since we didn’t find out the gender of our baby, we painted our nursery cream and brown (with colored polka dots), so the beige cushion also fits wonderfully.We completed the setting with a small espresso side table from Target, which is actually more cherry in color.Our peanut was born two weeks early, so we’ve had a week to try out the chair. The chair is a solid 4 stars. For nursing, it literally couldn’t be a better size. My wife and I are 5’3 and 5’8, respectively. When she sits in it to feed with a Boppy, she’s positioned perfectly. When I sit in it to rock, the arms of the chairs fit my position perfectly as well.Setup took no more than 15-20 minutes. The only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is because the bottom/back cushions could be thicker/softer. As is, they’re pretty thin. But not enough to NOT recommend this product. I would certainly get it if you already settled on another color scheme of a Graco crib/changing table set … and like things to “match” like I do. Sadly, I had to order my chair via Walmart.com because Amazon wasn’t selling the Cherry at the time.

Great

This is a great chair. I’m a size 24 but I am totally comfortable in it. At the end of my pregnancy, it was the only chair I could get up from without help. It is just the right height. It is on the firm side which is nice for a while but if you’re rocking your baby in it for hours your backside will feel it. Has some minor lovely design points also: for example the armrest curves around so that it is easy to grip for support when standing up – which sounds like a small thing but at 3 am it makes a difference.

Fall Hazard

I would not recommend buying this chair to anyone. The base broke while my husband was rocking our baby, luckily no one was hurt. You should go on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website and search this product before you purchase it.

Decent Glider

This glider is decent for the price, but it is very small and the padding on the seat is pretty thin. Also, it started making noises (while rocking) after a few months if use. Next time I’ll pay a little more for a better quality chair.
