    Beastfeeding chair

    Hi, I am considering if I should get a breastfeeding chair for my 2nd baby. It doesn't have to be one marketed for breastfeeding purpose, just a chair that you found comfortable for breastfeeding. Ideally, it should be able to be converted for regular use after breastfeeding is over.

    I didn't have one for my first and simply used a dining chair at home. But it was hard and has a hole (as part of the design) at the back, so I remembered needing to place a pillow at the back and prop baby up with another 1 or 2 pillows. Since I use the chair so much for the initial months and up to a year, I thought maybe it's worthwhile getting a comfortable one this time round.

    Any views/recommendations? Thanks!

    Thanks, Ed! Unfortunately, I've tried the Poang somewhere before and it didn't work for me. The reclining angle made it too difficult to get in and out of!

    There's another one at Ikea

    VRETA Swivel/rocking/reclining/armchair - Mjuk black - IKEA

    But its about the same price as a glider. Have you had a look at the Gliders at B2B?

    Thanks for your suggestion, Rani. I had a look at IKEA again the other day and found one that I liked!
