I've had this glider for 6 years. It's been through 2 babies, and is now on the 3rd. I have used it to nurse all three comfortably, rock everyone from my newborn to my 5 year old to sleep, or just sit back and recline and watch all 3 of the kids play while I sit comfy with my coffee in the baby's room. The only complaint I have is that the cushions detach from the glider, so you have to push it back (the seat cushion) but it's not that big a deal, and it's very comfortable. I hope I can find a spot for it when my kids have outgrown being rocked!user review

I love this glider. My daughter is over 1 yr and we still love to nurse and snuggle in this chair. It still looks like new. Made with very good materials that last. user review

We *love* this glider! It's super comfortable for mommy and baby. I use it every night to feed and rock our four month old. My husband uses it whenever he needs to calm the baby down. We both also use it for story time. Dutalier is an excellent brand and I just don't have enough good things to say about it!user review

I was hesitant to purchase this glider (and the matching ottoman), but I am so glad my husband convinced me to get it... I love it! It is much more comfortable than the other gliders we tried out in the store and well worth the higher price tag. It was very easy to assemble and is made well. I fit in the chair with my nursing pillow and it makes breast feeding my newborn so easy! I love that it reclines and I'm glad that it has the locking feature, although I feel safe getting in and out of it even when it's not locked. We decided to put it in our living room instead of the nursery because it looks so nice and gives us extra seating when guests are over. They all love it too. Great piece of furniture for use with a baby and beyond.user review

Dutailier makes gliders and ottomans safe for your baby's health. Dutailier wood gliders comply with Canadian and US norms on lead content, heavy metal content, flammability and formaldehyde. Dutailier fabrics and cushions are certified free of formaldehyde. The foam used in cushions is certified CertiPUR-US: low emission (VOCs) for indoor air quality and made without prohibited phthalates, ozone depleters (no CFCs), mercury, lead or heavy metals, formaldehyde and without PBDEs.

Gliders, ottomans and cushions generally ship in 6 to 8 weeks, except if they are purchased through Dutailier's Stock Program, in which case the timeframe is 2 to 3 weeks. This is not a guarantee, just a guideline based on our experience selling Dutailier products since 2000. The Dutailier factory shuts down for the 2nd half of December, as well as for summer vacation in July, so orders placed in June and July will normally take 3-4 weeks longer. Signature is required on delivery.

Free Shipping within 48 contiguous States is automatic with purchase on most Dutailier Gliders and Ottomans (except for Prestige Comfort Recliners and Swivel 450 series Recliners)! Shipping Gliders to Hawaii and Alaska is available for additional fee.
