What We Love
Yes, this is the best nursery glider recliner for parents who do not have enough space for an extra ottoman yet they do not have to compromise either the reclining function or footrest comfort.
You see, the Mikayla employs a retractable footrest design instead of an ottoman.
This way, you get the flexibility of hiding it away when not in use (thereby reducing footprint) and simply pulling it out from underneath the seat when you feel the need to kick up your feet.
Don't worry, the pop-out footrest will stay locked in place if you happen to doze off in it. All these are controllable via a built-in easy-pull mechanism that is within reach by the side.
Full Set Motion
Nevertheless, what sets the Mikayla apart from its many competitors is that it is able to recline besides gliding and swivelling.
There are not many of these in the market - at most, you see a combination of glide + swivel only.
Why this is such a plus point is that you get to recline almost fully aback to an almost lay-down position. This helps during those long rocking-baby-to-sleep sessions because you're not limited to just sitting in an upright position.
As a swivel rocking chair for baby nursery, you can swivel 360 degrees in it which means you get to face different directions even though it is put in one place.
Made possible by an enclosed ball bearing mechanism, you also get a smooth gliding motion to give you a full range of movement and convenience. The best thing is, it continues to glide even in recline position so that is something to rave about!
Spacious & Comfortable
The Baby Relax Mikayla is one of the most comfortable rocking chair for nursery to sit on.
You can probably already tell from the picture, but it has a very thick and plush seat cushion that will not sink or slump even if you sit long hours in it. This is thanks to the supportive spring core foam that it is filled with.
We think this is an especially important aspect to pay attention to because you will be spending a lot of time in it, be it the long breastfeeding sessions or rocking your baby to sleep.
You certainly don't want to be sitting on thin and flimsy cushions which flat out after awhile and trust us, there are plenty of those out there.
Aside from that, its seating is very spacious so even the bigger in size will be able to fit in comfortably. It also has a higher back than most other similar-looking upholstered glider rocking chair for nursery, making it ideal for breastfeeding when in upright position.
Even if you are over 6' tall, it will support you well - we have many dads attesting to that.
Nevertheless, if space is really an issue in which not even the Mikayla fits, don't worry, this glider here will solve your problem once and for all.
On top of that, the Mikayla has a track arm design for you to comfortably rest your arms and we especially like the elegant white welt trim that accentuates the shape of this recliner, making it look plush and luscious even in other rooms without looking out of place.
Another thing that we like about this glider chair is that it is fully upholstered.
If you have done your research, you will know that upholstery is always a plus compare to wooden gliders (with padded armrest, nonetheless) in terms of comfort level.
Not just that, but the Baby Relax Mikayla is available in linen upholstery besides the usual microfiber. While both are excellent in their own ways, linen has got that extra edge of being more breathable and anti-bacterial and stronger, too.
Do keep in mind that if you choose the linen option, there is a price difference of $30-$100 compared to microfiber finishes.
Things to Note
Speaking of which, the Baby Relax Mikayla Swivel Glider Recliner is not cheap.
Understandably so, given it is a swivel glider rocking chair and it is one of the most comfortable glider recliner we have ever came across in the market.
Nevertheless, its price point may not be for everyone. For those with a smaller budget, you may want to check this out instead.
Overall, if you are limited by space, this small rocker recliner for nursery that is the Baby Relax Mikayla is the best chair glider rocker that you will not regret buying.
With beautiful touches like contrasting white welt details and button tufting, this best swivel glider for nursery will be a great addition to any nursery room.
