    I stole my sisters
    loved it, I had an episiotomy and found the firm surface much nicer to sit on til I learned to nurse lying down.

    I don't feed in ours, but I'm still glad we bought it, bubs loves to be rocked, & the chair gives my legs a break from rocking standing up!

    I use a hanging hammock chair and it is fantastic! I even convinced my husband to put a bolt through the rafters so I could have one inside when it was raining. I didn't really breastfeed in it but to put him to sleep it is fantastic!

    I bought one when DS was 6 weeks old because I was getting lots of back and shoulder ache from feeding on my couch. OMG is it comfortable to feed in. Even when I finished b/fing DS it was useful for rocking him when he was sick or scared at night during a thunderstorm. So when pregnant with DD I bought a second one so now I have one in my room for night feeding an one in DD's room for the daytime. Eventually we'll put both in our playroom.

    IMO if you have the money and room for one, do it. They are great.

    I also bought one when ds was 5 weeks old for same reasons as PP and it's was the best for night feeds and settling and kept using if for night cuddles and settling etc til ds was about 18 months can't wait for ds2 to arrive in a few weeks to use it again and in regards to the cost of them like all baby items hunt around for 2nd hand cos most people don't use these things for long enough to wear them out I got mine off eBay in excellent cond for half the price we were going to pay in the shops

    I feed in our recliner in the lounge room. It's great to feed with my feet up & feeling extra comfy. We have a glider chair from Toys R Us, and we use it to help us rock bubs to sleep when required. It's a lot easier than rocking her in our arms. But, I don't find it easy to feed in - arm rests are too high & it's not that comfy when I put my feet up.

    My parents have a lovely leather rocker-recliner and I love to feed in that. Basically it's a single recliner, but when you put the leg rest down it can be used as a rocker. The only issue I have is that it has a lever to lift the leg rest up & put it down and that's a bit tricky with a bub in arms. Lots of furniture shops have these types of chairs including Ikea (although when I sat in their version I couldn't work out how to make it rock, but it didn't have much room behind it, so I wasn't sure if that was the issue). With the end of financial year sales coming up you might just find a bargain at a furniture store near you!

    I've got the Ikea poang? chair and footstool.

    It's more of a bounce than a rock, but I find DS prefers that action anyway

    I love my feeding chair- I have it in bub's room and will use it again with this bub- it is a 'glider' not a 'rocker'- make sure you get one with low arms so that baby can lie across your lap, rather than a traditional 'rocking chair' with high arms. I love it because I am not tempted to feed bub in bed and risk falling asleep there. I purchased my glider feeding chair on ebay second hand.

    I have one for each kiddie (luckily free from my sister) love them but not necessary.
    One is rocker and one is glider, the glider is easier.
