Glider-side Carafe

Whether breast or bottle fed, a baby isn’t the only one with needs in the early days of their life. Whenever we design a nursery, we always try to help prepare our new mom for the coming days. One of our top nursery essentials is a simple bedside carafe or in this case, a glider-side carafe. This simple contraption is incredibly useful for new moms, especially nursing mothers, whose thirst can be truly astonishing! Here are some of our favorite finds:

Two quick tips: If you can, purchase two so you can rotate easily between a perfectly chilled carafe in the kitchen and the empty one you’ve just used in the nursery. And, don’t forget a beautiful coaster!

    So funny, because I always had a giant bottle of water next to the glider – I always felt desperate for water when feeding. This is so much more civilized ;) Can’t believe I didn’t have a carafe.

    I’ll never forgot the incredible thirst I had during those first days of nursing and pumping. I used the plastic tumbler that the hospital gave me – practical but so ugly. One of these options would have brought some luxe into things!

    Nursing really leaves you parched! I clearly remember having a 1-liter plastic canister on the side table and resenting having to get up and refill it with water every so often. And I remember wishing I can just get my water via IV!
