Your baby’s comfort is really important, so it is best to furnish your baby’s nursery ahead of time. This will save you the stress of rushing things, especially when your baby arrives early.
Here’s how to furnish your baby’s nursery and bring comfort to your little one:
1. Put together the crib according to the manufacturer’s instructions
Creating a safe environment for your baby to sleep in is one of the most important things you can do when you’re setting up the nursery. Read through the instruction manual when you’re installing the crib, and make sure it’s secure before your baby comes home.
If you don’t feel confident in your construction skills, hire a professional to assemble the crib for you.
2. Set up the crib several months before the baby is due
You do not need to have the final details in place, but if your baby arrives early, you’ll want to have at least the crib ready, as well as the changing table if you choose to have one.
3. Include a comfortable chair so you can easily soothe the baby
When your baby wakes up in the middle of the night, or you need to get up for a middle-of-the-night feeding, you will need to sit while you are tending to your infant. Be sure it is somewhere that you will be comfortable, since you’ll probably be spending a lot of time there for the first few months.
4. Put a changing table and dresser in the nursery for your convenience
You can either choose a dresser with a surface big enough for a changing pad, or you can opt for separate pieces. Either way, you’ll want a place to organize all of those baby clothes, and the changing table will save your back through several years of diaper changes.
