We are closing on a house soon, and will be moving from a single bedroom to a large house. My daughter will be 12 months at the time of the move, but I plan on nursing until at least age two. We are used to nursing in a lazy-boy style recliner in the living room, but the chair will be downstairs in the living room in the new house. I am looking for a nursing solution that I can use upstairs. I have tried nursing her in the bed, and I found it to not be supportive enough. I have tried a few nursing chairs in relative's houses and shopping mall nursing lounges, and I find that the arms irritate the crap out of both me and my daughter. She is not very big, but she kicks the arm while nursing, and it is so uncomfortable.

 

So, I am looking at another lazy-boy style recliner, or a futon, or armless chair, or low arm chair, or a "swoop chair," with low curved arms. Anyone have experience with any of these options, or have other suggestions for a toddler? We still use a Boppy Pillow for nighttime nursing.

I would get another lazy boy recliner like the one you will have downstairs or move the one downstairs upstairs and get another chair for downstairs.
