    Default Recliner/Glider help needed!!!

    Soooo with the new little man on the way, I've decided to finally give in to a rocker/glider/recliner/some sort of chair for my living room. Joe and I went to La-Z-Boy today and I have to say the salesman gave us a great pitch! We narrowed it down to three - a swivel glider and two rocker/recliners. I prefer the swivel glider (just like the motion better) but you lose some reclining positions. It's basically sit up or lay back. The two rocker/recliners are similar, one is just more cushy but I am not in love with the color choices (of course, that is Joe's fav chair).

    So my question to you all - do any of you have a La-Z-Boy? Pros/cons? Anyone have another kind of recliner/glider they swear by? Being in sales in my past, I'm skeptical of the sales pitch. I'm sure the guy was honest about everything he told us, but I feel like I'd have to talk to the competition to get a clear view of if the construction is really all he says. Is there even any competition to La-Z-Boy? Any and all input is appreciated!!!

    I would prefer a recliner/rocker they are more cushiny and easier to recline back and take sweet naps with the baby boy.. When my nephew was born and little my brother and sister in law had a reclining couch and I loved being able to lay back and get some sweet lovin from my handsome guy they had a matching love seat that rocked so if we needed to rock we would sit there and it also reclined so after he fell asleep u could lay back w him
    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    sounds like the living room furniture I have and I also have the matching rocker/recliner. I got mine from Art Van but I think they're only in Michigan.

    I can't comment on recliners etc we don't have on at all....but I did get a rocking chair for when my youngest was born and I just wanted to say that there is nothing more magical than Nursing your baby whilst rocking in a chair.
    They love the motion and rocking in there with an upset baby....well those wails soon turn into gurgles

    Thanks for the input guys. All three recline ... just basically the rocker/recliner has a bunch of different recline positions for the feet whereas the swivel/glider is just up or down. Ohhh the decisions.

    Awww @JAKEISGREAT that's so cute. I sooo love those ages!!!

    @2BullyMama We did cancel the anniversary weekend. Decided we felt better about staying home and we will put the money towards the recliner. Worked out really well because we ended up having dinner at the place where we were married and had a great weekend. Chunk is doing ok! Making us crazy but that's what he does!!

    Thanks @Angievelvet ... that's a really good option. Hmmmm
