As soon as a woman gets pregnant, she starts to think about what is going to happen when the baby arrives. Honestly, you’ll probably be spending quite a bit of time in the baby’s nursery, which is why most women also spend quite a bit of time decorating the room before the baby comes. You have a good nine months to figure out what you want to do (or maybe even less!), so here are a few tips to keep in mind when getting to decorate.
Most important pieces to buy
Though a lot of things in the nursery may not seem worth it if you don’t use it a lot, there are a few things you will certainly want to use. You’ll definitely want to get a comfortable chair, according to The Orange County Register. When rocking the baby to sleep, sometimes you may just fall asleep yourself or not want to get up for fear of waking the baby. You also need to make sure you get a crib or something for the baby to sleep in and changing table for changing baby’s diapers and clothes. After that, it is all about the theme.
Stick with a theme
After you’ve picked out your main pieces of baby room furniture, you will want to start focusing on a theme. The Orange County Register recommends picking a theme that relaxes you and is something you feel comfortable with despite the current trends. There are always going to be new trends on the market, but whatever makes you and your family feel comfortable is the right theme for you. Right now, there’s been a lot more gender neutral nurseries out there, but if you want bright pink or blue, go for it!
As a new mom, there are a couple of things you need to get, whether it is aesthetically pleasing or not. These will help your baby sleep and, therefore, help you get a good night’s rest. Start by putting up blackout curtains. Though it doesn’t have to be perfect, babies will naturally go to sleep when it is dark and wake up when it is light. In the summer, this could make it awfully hard to keep your baby on a sleep schedule. Also, a humidifier will help your baby breath on those nights when his or her nose gets stuffy, and sleeping seems impossible. A white noise machine is often recommended by experts to drown out any outside noise and to help mimic the womb. With these few things in the room, you’ll have not only a safe haven for your baby, but one where they feel relaxed and comfortable.
