I feel like I"ve tried everything-- rocking recliner, glider, bentwood rocking chair, bouncy ball etc. My parents even moved their porch swing into their living room.
We ended up purchasing 3 shermag gliders over the last year or so-- one for upstairs, one for downstairs and one for my parents. The lazy boy roclking recliner types are made for bigger, taller people and were so, so, so very uncomfortable for nursing post partum. The bentwood has a deep rock, and is difficult to get in and out of. The gliders (although fugly) are like heaven. We paid $150 apeice, and they are the only way my son goes to sleep.
If I had bigger budget, I'd get a dutalier reclining glider, so we could sleep in it too!
