The Orbelle Trading Ga Ga (appx. $179) makes a beautiful addition to any baby's bedroom with its elegant details. Each one is handcrafted using solid wood, making it the type of item that can be handed down for years, but it may emit a strong smell at first and need to be aired out.
Families working with very limited space, or who need the option to tuck baby's things away when the nursery becomes a guest room, will love the Badger Basket Portable (appx. $100). It weighs just 21 pounds and is quite compact, but still cozy for your little one.
Recommended for newborn babies and smaller infants, the Green Frog Now and Forever (appx. $300) is beautiful and well-made, with rounded bars that are easy to grip while you rock it. It also features removable casters for moving around the house.
Those who like to keep their munchkin close will appreciate the Sorelle Dondola (about $140). Its gliding motion makes it ideal for stationing it next to your bed, so that when your infant cries, you can just reach over and give this a tiny nudge.
The Green Frog Allegro (about $256) combines contemporary design and classic features in an item sure to inspire jealousy in your mom and dad friends. It can be locked for those times you want it still using a discreet mechanism that doesn't interfere with the aesthetic.
New parents are so busy they may not always have the time to manually nudge a rocker. Luckily, the Vory Electric (about $367) does it for you, and it delivers a consistent, smooth motion that human hands can't replicate. Your tiny angel will be snoring in a matter of minutes.
Budget-minded parents will appreciate the Dream on Me Rocker (around $100). It can be used for babies weighing up to 20 pounds, has a stopper to prevent it rocking when needed, and feels well made. The traditional look blends into any room seamlessly.
The Babybjorn Lull (around $350) has an appealing minimalistic look. Its sophisticated simplicity also eliminates features that could accidentally trap or pinch curious little hands or fingers that reach between bars or slats, making it very safe.
