I love the way this gliding chair looks! So much nicer than typical gliders. It adds sophistication to any baby nursery and the gray color is neutral and nice. It rocks forward and back, but not by a lot—you won’t be tilting way backwards. And while you can swivel left and right, the range of motion in that direction is also limited. I like that there are head rests on either side for tired new mommies, but they’re pretty stiff. I would have given five stars if the chair reclined a little bit at the back and the head rests were more cushioned or supportive to allow a mom to rest while rocking her child. There were plenty of times as a mom of a child with congestion or reflux, I wish I had a chair I could nap in while the baby lay upright on my chest. The seating area is spacious. Plenty wide to accommodate a parent using a boppy or nursing pillow. The chair arrived in a large square box. It was HEAVY! The chair back and headrests separate from the rest of the chair and installation was as simple as sliding them into the appropriate slots.
Edited after using for a couple months: This thing holds onto stains like nobody's business! I've adjusted my star rating b/c for a chair that's supposed to be in a nursery where newborns spit-up, pee, and poop onto everybody and everything, plus my milk always squirted everywhere, I am NOT impressed at how hard this chair is to clean. It should have been pre-treated with scotchgard or teflon.
