What We Love
Ultimate Back Support Features
The Ruby Glider is jam-packed with back support features.
First of all, it has a high back. So much so that if you're on the average height, you will have no problem getting comfortable headrest and support for both your head and neck.
Also, it may not seem like it (given there is no obvious handle/lever) but this is a recliner as well.
The reclining mechanism is hidden for a more stylish and premium look, nevertheless, you can lean all the way back to an almost flat position for ultimate comfort.
For those suffering from a bad back, you will know just how big a relieve it is to be able to lie in a desired angle. The angle is different for everyone one, so it helps that you get to adjust to your own optimum position every time.
It doesn't stop there.
A matching lumbar pillow is included so that you get additional support in the lower back region which, as you would have guessed, many suffer from.
Now you may say other gliders have similar features.
Yes, they do - the Odelia and Mikayla are well-known for their high backs and plush paddings, the Olive provides a lumbar pillow, all of them recline or swivel one way or the other but here's the catch:
NONE has all of these together in one glider!
Which is why the Ruby Glider is such a gem for the bad backs. It has a tall back for adequate back and neck support, it reclines so that moms and dads can comfortably lean back for some much needed rest and it has a lumbar pillow for additional support for the lower back region.
See what we mean by it being the best nursery glider for bad backs?
Multiple Motions & Plush Comfort
Another aspect that makes the Ruby so desirable is its overall plush paddings.
Fully upholstered, it is soft and durable with a padded back and luxuriously broad arm sides. The thick seat cushion does not slump or go flat after long hours of sitting so it gives plenty of support.
Also, you will notice that it has a wide seating area. It may not be 1.5x bigger than standard seatings, but there is more than enough space for mom or dad to cuddle with your baby without feeling too cramped in it. A great choice if you are a bit "full-figured" or plus sized!
Another thing is that besides the aforementioned reclining feature and the usual gliding forward and backward motion, it has a metal base that allows for a smooth and gentle 360 degree swivel motion as well.
Such multiple rocking motions give you the option of choosing the more adaptable to what is comfortable for you at the moment. You get to switch up between modes for when you need to be comfortable as you feed, or when you need to soothe and rock your baby to sleep.
All of them operate quietly so you don't have to worry about any annoying creaking or squeaking sound waking your baby up.
Even though it is not a glider and ottoman set, it has a plush pop-up leg rest for you to kick up your feet.
It opens and closes easily unlike some which you have to struggle to do so, it is no wonder parents raved about the comfort level that this glider brings!
GreenGuard Gold Certified
What this means is that this glider recliner has been tested for over 10,000 chemicals to ensure it does not possess any harmful toxic chemicals, thereby improving your indoor air quality to create a healthier environment for your baby to sleep, play and grow.
The upholstery used is free of chemical flame retardants and the entire chair meets all CA TB117-2013 flammability requirements, being polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and formaldehyde free.
Things to Note
One thing to keep in mind is that the Ruby Glider Recliner is very heavy. At 116 pounds, it is perhaps the heaviest glider we have ever came across but that doesn't necessary mean it is a bad thing.
Rather, it gives the assurance that this nursery glider recliner is made of solid materials and if you think about it, it actually makes sense what's with a metal base and all the plush and thick paddings.
So yes, remember that it is very heavy so you should always enlist at least another pair of hands to help when you need to move it.
It is not easy to find a glider that swivels, rocks and reclines, certainly, not in the quality and price of the DaVinci Ruby Recliner Swivel and Glider.
Even if you do not suffer from a bad back, we think you will love this glider recliner very much for its comfort and durability.
And if it is of any weight to some of you, the Ruby Glider is one of the least conspicuous nursery glider in that it actually looks like a piece of furniture instead of looking outrightly like a glider.
This way, when baby grows up, you can still use it as an armchair and it will have no problem blending in seamlessly with the rest of your living space.
