I have a wooden glider (not a nursery one, though) at my house and a classic wooden rocker at my mom's (where I live when DH deploys). The glider was Amish made and has pads. I love it! The rocker is unpadded so I folded a blanket to cover the seat and back. Plain wood was too uncomfortable for me.
