Planning the decoration for baby’s room is one of the most fun aspects of getting ready for a new baby. A fun and exciting part of getting ready for your baby's arrival is decorating and selecting the ideal accessories and furniture for the nursery.
However, with so many baby room decor options available, it may be challenging for parents to choose what's essential and what's to leave. You can find plenty of adorable goods in every baby store, from pillows and blankets to paintings and trinkets. To get you through the first year or two, your infant only needs a few things for protection and comfort. Here are the top 5 items every nursery should have to help you focus on the essentials.
Crib or Bassinet
A Baby's bed is one of the most crucial items of decoration for baby’s room. Whether you select a fancy crib or a standard bed, your child's resting area will probably be the center of attention in the nursery. Ultimately, it will end up in the space that makes the most sense in your nursery. Whatever your budget and design preferences, be sure the crib or bassinet is solid and constructed from high-quality materials. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, avoid drop-side cribs since they don't offer enough support and are they don't meet our Australian Safety Standards.
Crib Mattress and Sheets
Baby bedding can be a delightful addition to the decoration process in addition to it being essential for your child's comfort. There are many different types of bedding available, including crib skirts, bumper pads, pillows, and blankets.
You may still utilize a baby quilt as part of the nursery decor even if you decide to use a sleep sack to keep the baby warm at night. It's a good idea to have two waterproof mattress protectors so you can easily switch between them.
Same goes for linens as well, It's preferable to have three sheets, while this may sound like too many it’s always best to have many than not enough when it comes to bedding. Sometimes you may need to change the linens more than once a night due to spitting up or diaper leakage.
When it comes to nurseries, there is never enough storage, especially with those enormous diaper bags, sterilizers, humidifiers, and other baby care accessories that occupy the majority of the room's available space. The built-in crib shelves in this location offer enough room for storing your parenting and baby books, your child's pictures, and other items. You may store your nursing pillow or extra linens in the under-storage space as well. An additional couple of wall shelves are a plus.
Your baby can move on the bed without knowing what is right and wrong. Many things can harm the baby, like items with edges. You need to cover them with babyproof edge covers.
According to research, 53 percent of injuries to babies occur due to falls from beds. Bed rails are available in the markets and can be easily installed on the edges of the bed to protect them from falling.
To avoid bumps or bruises from sharp furniture, corners, and edges, use babyproofing corner guards. They are very easy to install by simply removing the tape backing and glue them on to attach them to any surface, including wood, glass, marble, quartz, and granite. These safety corners are made of premium materials and are free of latex, heavy metals, phthalates, and BPA.
Electrical outlets pose a severe risk to your infant once they are able to stand, as well as to older kids who might be enticed to insert their fingers and other objects in them. The outlet plugs are an easy, affordable solution to protect your children. They come in every size and are simple to install.
