The due date is coming closer and you still haven’t fixed the nursery in preparation for the new arrival. You want everything done in time for when you get out of the hospital and back home, so you must start to get things moving in terms of designing your baby nursery. Some decisions you’ll make will feel daunting, designing a baby nursery shouldn’t be one of them. The process should be fun and enjoyable for all involved.
Cots & Cribs
Your main feature in a baby nursey will generally be the crib. It is where you will lay your little one down every night, so it must be comfortable and sturdy. You’ll find plenty of options when it comes to cots and cribs at CMC Gold. You may be thinking this is a temporary item, but a lot of the time it is not. Did you know that many kids sleep in their cribs for up to 4 years, so it makes sense to invest in a good quality bed for your baby. In addition, if another one comes along in the process, your older child can move out of the crib and make way for the new one.
The next part of your design should be the crib bedding. You want your baby to feel as comfortable as possible, so invest in good quality bedding. Just like it is important to stay healthy when you’re pregnant, you must purchase bedding that is soft to the touch and is made from 100% cotton. Young babies have sensitive skin and the last thing you need is for their bedding to cause a rash. It is essential to invest in at least 5 or 6 fitted sheets as you’ll be surprised at how quick you go through them.
Another essential item you cannot do without when creating a baby nursery. There is no way around it, when you’ve a baby, you’ve got to change dirty nappies. If you don’t install a changing table, things could get messy. You’ve two options when it comes to a changing table, you can purchase a free standing one or go for something that is built into a storage unit. Your choice will generally come down to space.
Once you got most of the functional pieces out of the way, you can now concentrate on the fun part. Decorating the nursery room is lots of fun, you can go for all kinds of themes and add great accessories to the room. When decorating you must be mindful of bedroom safety for kids. When they start to crawl, they become more adventurous and start to explore the room.
If you have no idea where to start, look for some inspiration online. Find an image of a nursery you like and do your best to replicate it. It doesn’t have to be the exact same, you can add little touches of your own and make it unique to your home. Remember to always ask for help when you need it – family, friends and partners are there for support.
