WHIITELIST suggests 3 minimalist nursing chairs for parents who are looking for alternatives to the typical glider rocker or nursery rocking chairs.


I knew quite early on that the most important piece of furniture in Chance’s nursery was going to be the chair. I needed somewhere comfortable (that wasn’t the bed) where I could feed my baby during the day, that supported me, and would transition well as he grew.
I wasn’t particularly interested in one that rocked, neither one that reclined just a chair that functioned and fit with the minimalist aesthetic I was trying to achieve for Chance, as you may have seen here.

There was a lot of time spent researching which chair would fit the bill, and in the end, I decided to pick the Vitra Eames RAR rocking chair.
Mr.L and I are already huge fans of the husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames, as their designs are so beautifully designed, reflecting the marriage of art and architecture, and the perfect investment, as their iconic works, are quite simply for life.


It was then that I realised that the 3 pieces that I had shortlisted, were all Eames. As mentioned earlier, any Eames piece requires a little investment, so I ran through the reasons why I was attracted to this particular type of non nursing chair.
There was enough support for me to establish a comfortable breastfeeding routine. An area in the room that both Chance and I would associate with ‘feeding time’. The Vitra Eames RAR rocking chair could transform from just being a chair, into a rocking chair and soothing aid. Lastly, the convenience and ability to transition from nursing chair for me to toddler chair, and even adult chair, made it the perfect solution.


Below, you will see the Vitra Eames RAR rocking chair that I chose, as well the other 2 options that I was considering.
