Toddlers below the age of six tend to have delicate bodies with the bones and joints still in the developing stage. These children require the most assiduous and attentive care since it is easy for them to hurt themselves when left unattended. One of the ways of ensuring proper care is to be mindful of their seating arrangements. Regular furniture used by adults is rigid, sturdy, and may prove uncomfortable for toddlers of that age. Standard furniture may affect their bones and joint health. Hence, select kids’ recliners that are soft, comfy, and ideal for growing age toddlers.
Types of kids’ recliner bases
Kids’ recliner bases come in two primary varieties, namely the rocking base and the swivel base. Swivel bases consist of the recliner placed on top of a circular flat base allowing circular movement. The swivel base kids’ recliner enables the child to turn and face any direction they wish due to its pivoting feature. The rocking base recliners are designed to rock back and forth gently. While both recliner bases are excellent choices, rocking chairs are a better recliner choice for toddlers since these chairs relax the restless toddlers and help them sleep better.
Choosing the correct size
While kids’ recliner chairs are half the size of regular chairs, they vary in various sizes. Three primary size varieties exist for kids’ recliners, namely the standard, the large, and the extra-large variety. The standard variety is the most common recliner size used comfortably by any average toddler, whereas the large type is suited for slightly heavier than average toddlers. Regular toddlers may also use large size recliners for additional comfort. However, extra-large size recliners are recommended for toddlers regardless of their size since toddlers tend to grow quickly and grow out of the standard and the large recliners.
Flat-lying vs. non-flat-laying recliners
In almost all the recliners, the back can be adjusted to an angle. However, recliners are divided into two varieties based on the reclining rise, namely the flat-laying and the non-flat-laying recliners. The non-flat recliners are reclinable but do not recline to a fully flat position. These recliners are ideal for a siesta or a small nap. As suggested by the name, the flat-lying recliners are capable of reclining to a completely flat position. Toddlers can use these recliners for both sitting and sleeping since these recliners are incredibly versatile.
Manual vs. electric recliners
Manual recliners are mechanical recliners that go into reclining positions by lifting a lever attached to its side. On the other hand, the electric recliners come with a motor inside them and go into reclining positions at the push of a button. Many recliners also come with USB ports that can be used for charging cell-phones and other electronics.
