I got a glider because I thought I needed a glider or rocker for a baby. It was so hard trying to nurse dd in it when she was first born. The MW even commented that it was too narrow. I usually nursed her on the couch or bed. She fell asleep while being rocked in the chair about ten times max. It was much easier to get her to sleep by wearing her in a wrap and walking around. So, for us it wasn't a good purchase, but it appears we are in the minority.
