Comfy (reclining) chair?

I want to treat myself to a comfortable chair, which apart from just being nice for the rest of my pregnancy would be nice for feeding. There are lots out there but I wondered if anyone had got one in the last few years that was REALLY nice? Could be a recliner or maybe an armchair/footstool combo?

I've got a bouncy non reclining one from ikea that I really like.

My parents have got something like this:

I want to steal it blush

I bought an "old lady's chair" (as DH calls it) from a charity shop. Sooo comfy -DH has now stolen it and I'm looking out for another. The pattern on it is a bit old but I love the reclining and general supportive shape.

Great idea for feeding, but not sure about in pregnancy? My midwife told me it's important to sit upright and forward (not reclined) as much as possible to encourage baby into a good position for birth. Laying back a lot can risk baby being back to back, so you really want a supportive chair that encourages good posture in pregnancy.

Sorry if this isn't what you wanted to hear.

Ah, I did not know that Waggamamma! Although for me it would not matter as I have to have a c section anyway shock But good for others to know....

Good idea, I will try charities first JennyBlueWren, as it could be a fraction of the cost
