As a mum or dad-to-be, there more than a dozen items you need to acquire or make ready in anticipation of the baby’s arrival.
And when it comes to matters nursery furniture, there is always more than one thought about everything.
For one, some items are a must-have, while others could easily be avoided. Again, no one wants to spend their hard-earned cash on gear that would soon gather dust with no role to play.
To make your nursery furniture shopping experience more rewarding, here’s a checklist to guide your selection of essentials.
- A crib
Perhaps the number one acquisition should be a safe and comfortable crib where the baby can sleep and relax as the situation demands. Granted, newborns spend most of their time sleeping, especially during the first few months. And considering the benefits of sleep you should not shy away from investing in a premium crib or a baby bedding.
Before deciding on the ultimate pick, ensure it will allow you glance over the baby from a distance, so you don’t have to walk over to confirm how the baby is fairing.
- A nursing chair
Fact is- you’ll from time to time want to sit and have the baby relax on your arms. And that’s precisely where a nursery chair comes handy. A good nursing chair will allow the caregiver to lean, rock, or even swing around as much as you like. That way, baby feeding or baby-parent bonding moments do not have to be boringly calm.
Usually, babies have their attires changed several times a day. And while you may have a general closet space, you need to keep some clothes and accessories at hand to minimize back and forth when it is time to change the baby. In short, small-sized drawers for housing a few sets of relevant clothing items should not miss among your kids furniture.
- Changing table
A changing table is another essential piece of furniture that forms the centerpiece of a complete baby nursery. While you can do with a little improvisation, having a dedicated changing table can save you a lot of hassle. And in your quest for the best, get a product that defines your sense of style and has a baby-friendly appeal.
Depending on available space and personal preferences, you can opt for furniture of matching size and design. In case you find something (say a dresser) that can serve multiple purposes and suits your situation, go for it. And with that, you can get your nursery off to a perfect start.
