Advantages: Sturdy, easy to clean, five different height settings, can be folded flat and well padded.
I always associate ‘Mothercare’ with selling high quality items at an affordable price. So when contemplating purchasing a Rocker chair for my son - Daniel, I chose to go to a store that I and many others trusted.
Even though it was many moons ago since I first purchased a Rocker from Mothercare, I remember thinking how impressed I was with my purchase and how much use was gained from it. A good decision all round.
As I did with alot of my son’s baby equipment, I packed it away in the hope that the sound of tiny feet would be ringing in my ears before too long.
I’m all for recycling, especially as the outlay of baby equipment is phenomenal, and if you do manage to sell it on, then you only get a fraction of the price back of what you have paid. It doesn’t matter how well an item has been looked after, or the condition of it, and if you are planning on having anymore children, then you are only going to have to purchase it all again!
I was ecstatic upon hearing the news that I was pregnant with my daughter Chloe, and when I was six months pregnant, I decided that must sort through what I had or didn’t have for the new baby. Unfortunately, I hadn’t realised that the support that was in the back of the Rocker had been lost (which must have happened when I lent it to a friend - no incriminations intended!) So as this was especially important for a newborn, decided that I must go and buy a new one.
Where did I decide to go - you’ve got it Mothercare.
The Rocker chair I chose is absolutely excellent - even better than the first one.
The pattern is called Moss Check, which is navy and lime checks. It is very appealing and easy on the eye.
It is very well padded and has excellent support - which is needed for a newborn baby.
A secure safety strap, to ensure the more able baby doesn’t come to any harm.
The rocker can be folded flat, for easy storage or travelling.
Has five different height settings; ideal for when the baby becomes more alert to his/her surroundings.
The Rocker is designed for use by babies weighing up to 10kg/22lbs.
It has a stabilising bar, to stop the Rocker Chair from rocking.
Easy to clean - the Manufacturer’s instructions state that it can be cleaned by sponging with warm water and a mild detergent, but I have put it on a gentle wash in the Washing Machine, and it didn’t come to any harm. Many machine’s now have a hand wash programme on them, so I suggest using this, as it worked for me - but if in doubt, a cloth with soap and water is perfectly suffice.
Easy to remove ‘poppered’ cover.
It also has two handy carrying straps.
This Rocker has been well used and I can’t fault it.
Even though the Rocker is only recommended for use up to the weight of a 22lb/10kg baby, my daughter Chloe absolutely loves hers, still at thirteen months. If we decide not to feed her in her highchair, then she sits in her Rocker. We don’t fasten her in anymore as she can’t really come to any harm and she is free to climb in or out, she knows that it is her chair. We always know when she is tired as she always climbs in and has a quiet five minutes.
This was definitely one of the best pieces of equipment that I have bought for my daughter.
It is truly indispensable.
