When I first started designing my daughter’s nursery, I had a few principles in mind. I wanted it to be a calming, neutral space with pops of a light blue. Nothing too crazy, just somewhere peaceful and nurturing where she could read, sleep, and play with toys. The design started coming together beautifully, but I really struggled to find a good chair. Every option was either “more of a living room chair,” “too white” (aka would get filthy), or “functional but ugly.” Then one day, I discovered DTC newcomer Nuture& and was immediately intrigued by the brand’s simple but functional pieces. I nabbed a Glider ($985) and never looked back.
A Nursery Brand Designed For Real Parents
Nurture& was born from a desire to reshape the nursery furniture space for modern parents. Yep, sign me up! As I mentioned before, there aren’t a lot of great nursery chairs on the market -- sure, there are plenty of options at big box retailers, but nobody is really thinking about this product in a thoughtful way. Parents need a chair that looks good enough to complete the perfect nursery design (not that hard to find), but also one that functions well (very hard to find). The versatility of the Nurture& Glider is unparalleled -- it’s ergonomically designed, with power recline, a smooth glide, adjustable head support, and supportive arms. This chair has become the powerhouse of our home, and we’ve clocked endless hours feeding, cuddling, reading, and even sleeping in it. I’ve been absolutely blown away by its quality and design.

Looks Aren’t Everything...Or Are They?
Let’s be honest, nobody wants an ugly chair in their nursery, right? As parents, we spend hours preparing for baby, making sure every little thing is perfect...so of course we want items that look good. Nurture&’s chairs come in three simple colorways -- navy, ivory, and gray -- to fit any nursery pallette. I chose the ivory, a soft neutral which fits seamlessly with the rest of my decor and is the ideal backdrop for colorful pillows, which I switch out often to mix things up. The superior design, with premium cushioning and high-quality materials, makes the room look that much more put together.
“Life-Proof” Fabric For Even The Biggest Messes
Honestly, I probably should have started with this one, so I’ll just say it loud now. THIS CHAIR IS SPILL-PROOF. Any parent knows this is a major gamechanger.
Honestly, I probably should have started with this one, so I’ll just say it loud now. THIS CHAIR IS SPILL-PROOF. Any parent knows this is a major gamechanger. I can literally spill (almost) anything on this chair and it wipes right up, thanks to stain resistant and liquid repellant Live-Smart materials. Our daughter is very iffy on the bottle and is constantly dribbling or spitting milk all over the chair. Sounds gross, but it basically just rolls right off. We don’t have this chair in my older daughter’s room, but I imagine it would be great for her constant water spills, toothpaste mishaps, paint-covered hands...you get the gist. I also love that the fabric doesn't contain any harmful chemicals and hasn’t been treated with anything toxic either.
I have something to admit: when my four month old wakes up early from a nap, I’ll often pick her up and rock her back to sleep for another half hour or so...partly because I know it’s the best way to keep her on schedule, but mostly because I just love the snuggles. Once I get her back to sleep, I’ll sit there in the dark scrolling Instagram or reading articles on my phone. That’s why I’m super grateful that the Nurture& chair comes with a built-in USB charger that keeps my phone charged when I need it most. This comes in handy all the time. I also love that the chair’s features are electronically powered -- you can recline, adjust the headrest, or bring the chair back to its original position all with the push of a button. It’s just easy.
If you’re looking for a chair that does it all and then some, Nurture& is for you. Check it out and learn more here.
Five More Reasons to Love Nurture&:
- In addition to the chairs, we also love the matching storage ottoman ($299) and pillows ($60).
- All purchases are worry-free, with a 30-day no question asked return policy and a one year warranty.
- If you don’t like your chair, they’ll refund you and allow you to donate your Nurture& product to any 501c3 tax-exempt organization (or they’ll help set you up with a charity partner who will come pick up the chair).
- Don’t just take our word for it...here’s how parenting blog Motherly describes the chair: “If you took the comfort of a throwback La-Z-Boy but slimmed down the profile for a more modern look, this would be it” (they’re not wrong!).
- If you don’t splurge for white glove delivery, the chair comes almost fully assembled so you don’t have to waste hours putting it together (assembly takes about 10 minutes or less!).
