When it comes to designing your baby’s nursery, there are countless options to consider. There are so many do’s and don’ts out there as well.
A practical nursery may not sound like fun, but practical does not mean dull. Your little one’s nursery can still be exciting and beautiful while making everything easier for you. A minor thing can make the biggest difference.
Things like handmade stuffed animals can add that personal touch you were looking for. We are constantly hearing about what not to put in the cot – basically anything. But no one will tell you what to do in the nursery to make your life as a new parent simpler.
Keep Everything You Need Within Reaching Distance
There is a reason that many parents swear by a changing station. A changing station will keep everything needed for diaper changing right near you. Eliminating the possibility of leaving your baby unsupervised on a surface.
No parent wants to realize halfway through a diaper change that you don’t have a clean one on hand. To avoid panic when using cloth nappies, keep the sealed washing bucket close to your changing station.
Keep burping cloths and a spare change of clothes with your changing station to avoid mishaps. The absolute last thing you want to do is step away from your baby to grab something and risk your baby falling from that height.
The dreaded baby clutter is something many new parents will face, but it holds no significance if you know how to prevent the clutter buildup. Imagine running to your baby in the middle of the night and tripping because of the mess.
The last thing you want is to fall while holding your bundle of joy. Keeping the nursery clutter-free can lift a weight off of your shoulders.
Before the baby is born, create your nursery with organization strategies in mind to reduce your stress. Containers are a great way to separate toys and clothes within drawers and cupboards.
Keep your little ones’ clothes in a separate washing basket; this will reduce the amount of sorting you will need to do. Only buy and keep what you need.
Becoming more organized and owning fewer items will benefit you physically, mentally, and in other ways. Having too many things will influence these areas, so be selfish and look after yourself, your baby, your family, and the environment.
Washable Wallpaper Or Wall Paint
Babies are known for explosive diapers and peeing when uncovered for a few seconds. Make sure your walls are easily washable to prevent the stress that only walls covered in pee can create.
Vinyl wallpaper is an excellent choice because it is heat and moisture resistant, meaning it can be washed as many times as needed.
Having a baby is a joyous time and should be celebrated. Make sure your little one’s nursery is the way you would like it. Your baby’s nursery should always be clean and clutter-free.
