My first memory of rocking chairs is when I used to travel down to my Grandparents house for a visit. We would sit in the living room, rock back and forth and catch up on what had been happening in our lives since that last time were together. It was a relaxing, special time that I will always remember. We weren't worried about schedules, places to be, or what chores needed to be done. We just took a few minutes to step away from the stress of everything and enjoy our time together. Grandma had her rocking chair, and Grandpa has his. They also had one for the grandkids and my brothers and I always fought over who got to sit in it. It was your classic style chair for rocking just like the adult ones, only smaller. We felt just like grown-ups, rocking right along with them. The rocking motion was rhythmic and soothing, seeming to have a calming effect on any child who sat in it.
You have really got to give your newborn the best possible chance to fall asleep. With that in mind, make sure he or she is as comfortable as possible. Make sure he or she has a full tummy and a fresh diaper, and then swaddle the infant tightly. Swaddling is very important. Being wrapped tight helps the child feel safe, snug, and secure. Finally, make sure the room temperature is warm, though not stifling hot. Infants are very sensitive to temperature, and are happiest when things are warm and toasty. I remember that we would often doze off to sleep ourselves when the room was well heated!
Quality Time: It is truly an awesome thing when I see a young child rocking with their parents or grandparents. I remember spending time rocking with my grandma in a little old wooden chair chair that she had at her house just for me. She would be rocking there working on her latest crochet project while I would talk to her about all of the latest things a young boy could think of. These chairs definitely have a family aspect to them that allows a child to grow close to their loved ones.
