Jan 24, 2012 Rockabye Baby I never really understood the value of a rocking chair until my son came along. My wife hates rocking chairs as she gets motion sickness, but our baby seems to love going back and forth. I guess he got my genes. Every night I rock my son to take away his night time crankiness and it lulls him to sleep or at least eases him into a peaceful state of mind. Now a days I watch television while sitting on the rocking chair, rather than on our bed or sofa. I guess I’m enjoying the chair as much as my son. I would have never guessed that rocking chairs are so comfortable, but I should have realized this since they have been around for ages. This classic tool to sooth babies rocks!
