Choose a Safe and Expandable Crib
Your baby will be spending much of his or her time in the crib, so it’s essential to be sure that the crib that you choose is safe. Also, you will want to be sure that the crib can grow as your child grows so you won’t have to repurchase a new crib for a toddler. If you have any questions about the crib that you’ve chosen, you can always call the manufacturer’s helpline for advice. Add beautiful crib bedding and crib sheet sets to complete the look.
Create a Cozy Nook
You’ll be spending a lot of time in the nursery with your baby, and having a cozy place to cuddle and feed your child will make the time spent together all the more sweet. Choose a glider or rocking chair that fits your body and supports your back well, and also be sure to include a comfortable ottoman to rest your feet on as well. Be sure that the chair and ottoman are in a print or color that compliments the rest of your home so they can be used in other parts of your home later on.
Find a Soft Floor Covering
Whether your home is carpeted or has wood floors, a cozy rug will make your baby’s nursery feel even more comforting. A rug will be an excellent asset later on as your baby learns to roll over and crawl, making it a soft place for him or her to place. Wool rugs can be easily cleaned and are extremely durable, so try to choose a floor covering that is both soft and lower pile to make cleanup easier.
Add Soft Lighting
No one likes a bright overhead light, so add some softer lighting elements into your baby’s room. If the space is small and you’re looking to maximize storage, try adding a hanging lamp. You can also install dimmer switches that will help your child’s space to feel soft and inviting. Lastly, a motion-activated night light will make late-night feedings easier and will help your little one fall back asleep faster.
Preparing for a little one is a wonderful and exciting time of life. Only you can know what is best for you and your baby’s needs, so feel free to decorate your nursery as you see fit.
