According to research, certain colors help you get a better night’s sleep! Blue, yellow and green are all colors that can help you avoid counting sheep every night. Of course, you won’t be seeing much color with your eyes closed, but it’s about what you see before you close your eyes. These relaxing colors help you wind down before going off to la-la land.

Blue is the color of water and the sky. Therefore, it is often associated with a feeling of calmness. The color has also been linked to reduced heart-rate and blood pressure.

Yellow may seem a bit surprising as a color for a good night sleep. Warm yellow, however, relaxes the body by stimulating the nervous system.

Green is an excellent choice for a bedroom as well. The color enhances a soothing feeling. Research also found that people with green rooms are more likely to wake up feeling “upbeat”.

Have one of these colors inspired a sleep-friendly design? We can help create that serene space to help your kids sleep through the night!

Over the past fifteen years PoshTots’ designers have learned a few things about babies, kids and their special spaces. Here’s what our nursery experts have to say on the ever-important topic of comfy, cozy nursery gliders.

What you need to know before purchasing a glider:

While preparing for the arrival of your little one, things can get hectic when it comes to picking out nursery décor, such as what colors to choose or what kind of crib will be suitable for the baby. The most important thing is to ensure that the baby will be comfortable and safe in his or her new space.

A nursery glider is an important piece of furniture that will bring comfort to you and your baby, especially during those late night feedings. Unlike the traditional rocking chair that moves on an arc, a glider is designed to slide in a forward and backward motion. The repetitive back and forth movement is very soothing for the baby and you as well.

When choosing a glider, it is vital that you select the best one for your specific needs; just any chair will not do. There are a few things to consider: the quality, model and features, fabric, and the overall longevity of the glider. Before you begin your search, make a list of must-have features and use that list when you are comparing gliders. Here’s a great video of first time parents picking out their nursery glider.

Quality

Most gliders have a wooden frame and you should be sure the frame of your glider is sturdy and will last. Kiln-dried hardwood is one of the sturdiest wood types and is a great material for gliders. Also be sure that the glider is functioning properly. If it feels unstable, it is not a good choice for you or your baby. If you’re not able to test-sit in a glider, but sure to call an expert – someone who has been selling gliders for many years so that they can answer all of your questions.

Model and Features

Gliders come in many different styles and choosing the right one can be a bit overwhelming. You can stick to a more traditional style glider without cushions or you can opt for a contemporary style. The cushions should comfortably support your back, arms and bottom with springs, dense foam or down-filled cushions. Some contemporary style gliders have removable cushions that are easy to clean. Choose a glider that is wide enough for you and your baby to sit comfortably with room to move around.

In addition to different models, the functionality varies as well. If you are more comfortable in a reclined position then it is a good idea to get a reclining glider. Other gliders also have a swivel function and many come with a matching gliding or stationary ottoman. For the safety of toddlers in the house, it is a good idea to purchase a glider with a lock function or optional stationary legs to use after the baby outgrows the need for the glider. This will prevent the gliding mechanism from pinching any fingers.

Fabric

Let’s face it, no baby is clean 100 percent of the time, so it is essential to pick the right fabric that is baby-mess proof and easy to clean. Leather gliders are a good choice but can be on the expensive side. Microfiber fabrics are easier to clean. The fabric should also feel soft against your skin as well as the baby’s skin. This will help the baby to rest easily and maybe even allow you to catch a cat nap. When ordering online, you can request samples of the fabric and other designs to get a feel for what you want.

Longevity

Buying a glider can put a small dent in your wallet depending on the features that you prefer. If you are not planning on using it for nursing in the future, you should choose the look of your glider based on how it will fit in another room of the house such as a bedroom or family room. A glider that can go beyond the baby’s nursery is money well spent.

Remember, depending on what features you choose for your glider, it may take a while to get to you. If you are expecting, you should allow enough time for the glider to be built and delivered to you before the baby arrives. Chances are you will want the glider to be somewhat customized in order to meet all of your needs. Unfortunately, that means you should start the design process early.

Buying a glider should not just be a decision on a whim. It should be the perfect glider fit for you and your little one. If you feel relaxed in your glider, the baby will be able to sense that and feel relaxed as well. So get ready to glide off into a dreamland, just you and baby.
