There is no doubt that rocking chairs rock, especially when you have little ones. But before we get in to why they rock, and even more importantly why our traveling rocking chair device RockEase rocks, let's talk history real quick.
The first rocking chair was created in 1710 by attaching two ice skates to a regular chair. However, the trend didn't really take off until about 75 years later. Rocking chairs were quickly recognized as having positive effects on pain and stress, and were often utilized in places such as hospitals and other health care facilities.
So why rock your baby? And with a portable rocking chair nonetheless?
We picked a few of our favorite benefits, because we know you are pressed for time.
- Soothing your child when he is stressed is essential for his overall well-being, and in this strange new world he’s been born into, rocking most closely resembles the familiar, comforting sensations of the womb.
- The back and forth motion of a rocking chair provides social, emotional and motor development. It helps calm crying babies, makes them smile and hold their heads up.
- Rocking has prenatal benefits in that it is believed to promote the development of the fetal nervous system. Anne Ayres, a respected American occupational therapist and nerve/clinical psychologist, recommends that at the start of the 10th week of pregnancy, women should rock 5-10 minutes twice a day.
