A Checklist for Designing Your New Baby's Room | Collaboration

When you’ve got a new baby on the way, there’s an endless checklist of things that you have to

prepare before the big day. One of the most important things that you need to sort out is the new

baby’s room. Everything needs to be ready and in place, so your new baby can settle into their new

surroundings when you bring them home. If you’re starting work on your new baby’s room, here is

a handy design checklist to help you along the way.

The Crib

The crib is the most important part of the room, so you should make sure to take time choosing the

right one and make sure that you invest a bit of money in it. If you already have children and you

invested in a good quality crib the first time around, you might not need to get another one. If this is

your first child or you got rid of the old one, you’ll need to get another one. You can get some beautiful

Obaby nursery furniture from Beautiful Bambino that is great quality, so it should last long enough

for your other children if you plan to have some more in the future. This is not the time to try to save

money by buying second hand, and you always need to make sure that the crib you’re buying

adheres to safety standards.

Make sure that you buy plenty of sheets as well, you’d be surprised how many you can get through

in just a couple of days. At least 5 or 6 is a good amount because you won’t have that much spare

time to do washing when you’re looking after a newborn baby.

The Changing Table

You’ve got two options when it comes to a changing table; you can buy a separate, free standing one

or you can get a changing pad that will fit on top of a dresser. The second option is usually best,

especially if the room isn’t that big, because you’ve got extra storage underneath. You can use some

of the drawers to keep a stock of diapers and wipes in so you’ve always got everything to hand.

A Comfortable Chair

You’ll spend a lot of time in the nursery rocking the baby to sleep or feeding them, so you need a

comfortable place to sit. A nursing chair is always good for helping your baby to get to sleep. You need

to think about the material carefully as well because babies are messy. You need something with a

slipcover that you can easily take off and wash.


Now that you’ve got all of the essentials in there, it’s time to get some toys for your baby. If you’ve got

children already, putting some of their toys in there so they can play together is a great way to

help them bond with the baby. Choose toys that will stimulate your baby, like mobiles above their crib.

This is an exciting time so always remember to have fun decorating your baby’s new room as well.
