Full Answer

Traditional rocking chairs shift up and down. Gliders are popular with many parents of infants because the chairs move in a smooth back-and-forth motion that gently lulls the baby to sleep. Some gliders also swivel side-to-side. These chairs often come with very thick cushions that provide comfort to the parents. Ottomans are included with certain gliders. While some of these footrests stay in place, others are designed with a rocking motion that complements the glider.
