Our Hilston Cuddle Chair is one of our best sellers. Its ergonomic design offers perfectly cushioned support for nursing and feeding, whilst also offering a safe place to cuddle up with your little one. It’s the timeless, classic design that enables the chair to look at home in any room. Read Holly Burge's Hilston Cuddle Chair review below.
We have the Hilston cuddle chair in silver, which is a light grey colour. The design is totally gorgeous and looks great in Posey’s nursery. It doesn’t actually look like a nursing chair, more like a high-end armchair. The fabric is so lovely and soft, but also hardwearing and the solid oak legs add a real contemporary feel. I have always loved button- back chairs, especially with piped detailing. The style and colour fits in perfectly with our clean, neutral design in the nursery. It is my favourite place to be.
The cuddle chair, as the name suggest, is designed for snuggling. It's big enough to fit yourself, baby and another little one on for family cuddles. We are very lucky as Posey has a large nursery, so we have plenty of space. The chair is quite large at W99 x H78 x D83 cm which is one if the things I love about it, but size is just a consideration when purchasing. However, the regular Hilston nursing chair is much smaller, so could be a good alternative if you are tight on space.
"I find it most comfortable to sink into the chair together"
The chair is the centre of our bedtime routine. After we have finished the 1st B bath time, it’s time for the 2nd B, bottle.
Feeding is obviously of paramount importance when looking for a nursing chair. The Hilston is the best nursing armchair I have seen. Posey has bottles now as I finished breastfeeding a few months ago, but I wish I would have had the chair while I was still breastfeeding. I'm sure its ergonomic design would have made my life a lot more comfortable. And I would have had a lot less back ache. When feeding, I find it most comfortable to sink into the chair together with Posey and have my feet up on the foot stool, so for me the stool is a must. The arms of the chair are just the right height to rest on when feeding. As the chair is quite wide, I can fit a cushion in too for added comfort. The chair also has a removable and reversible seat cushion which is a massive bonus. I can’t be the only one that somehow manages to get milk everywhere, can I?
After bottle, it’s time for the next B, book. Posey and I love sitting together with a blanket and reading a bedtime story. It's such a lovely time of day. No matter how busy we have been, we get to snuggle together and just relax. The rockers on the bottom, always help to get Posey off to sleep and when you sit it the chair. You can’t help but rock back and forth. After her book, I will rock her in my arms and sing her a song or 2, the poor kid! She then gets super relaxed and I can put her down in her cot and, touch wood, she goes straight to sleep most nights.
I would highly recommend the Hilston. It is the best nursing chair on the market as it nails all the functions that you need from a nursing and feeding chair, without any compromise on style. It's made our nursery.
