Tuck was initially not a rock me mama kinda guy. But turned into one! His glider was great but Lola made it her own personal sanctuary and also would tear out the cushion so it's missing a bit of fluff. I checked getting it reupholstered but that was going to be a fortune. plus finding the fabric. So off that one goes to another home, and in comes a new one. I wish I knew how to sew. There's maybe one of my 206 bones in my body that has modern taste. But I still really like one modern piece in a room - I think it's nice to even out everything. Thus - I'm really leaning toward #1 (bonus that the cover can be washed) but #2 is also in the running. ALSO - the price for gliders: insane! Particularly for a piece that you may not use all that long, or that your baby may decide - nope! not for him/her! Did your baby like a rocker? Did you use a rocking chair? I love ones that have been in families for ages.
