Preparing your nursery for your baby’s big arrival is an exciting, frustrating and fun task all at the same time. Having the nursery done is really the first step in preparing for
becoming a parent. The nursery is where the baby is going to sleep when he or she is born.
Choose what furniture you want wisely. Your baby’s furniture will more than likely being your biggest investment. It will also decide what tone you’re setting for the nursery. Sometimes it’s easier to decide your theme first. From there it’s time to decide how you will decorate the room. It’s also best to do a little research before buying any furniture. Always check customer reviews to see what they’re saying.
For most parents, what they choose for their bedding is the main focal point for the room. When you choose the bedding, make sure you remove the bumper pad since many kids use this to climb out of the crib. Use a small, thin blanket to cover the baby during the first few months. Don’t use pillows or large quilts since they could be a hazard.
Accessories will help complete the finish look of your nursery. Make sure any dangerous items, such as lamps, are out of the baby’s reach.
Baby proofing your nursery is really important. Cover all outlets and power strips to avoid the baby from ever getting shocked. All cords need to be out of the baby’s reach, or not in the room at all if possible. Any diaper items and medications need to be out of reach as well. These seem like a given, but when a parent is rushing to get the nursery together, this could be easily over looked.
Keeping your nursery safe free and organized will help you and your baby rest easy at night. Follow these steps and your newborn will be sleeping in a beautiful, safe environment.
