Things Every Mother Should Know Before Decorating Your Baby’s Nursery
Growing a baby in your tummy is a BIG responsibility.
But, when the baby arrives in your life then this responsibility only doubles.
From frequent feeding routines to even more frequent diaper changing sessions, a mother’s life starts revolving around the baby. One of those responsibilities include decorating your baby’s nursery and since you’re reading this, we are guessing you are looking for some inspiration and ideas to decorate your baby’s room.
Few things you need to keep in mind before you start with this task-
1. Soft lights, bright lights. All kinds of light!
Flexible lighting system is a MUST. You will have to control the lighting around his sleeping routine; bright lights for when he is up and soft ones when he is sound asleep. This will help you a lot in putting your baby to sleep and save you a lot of long nights.
2. Pick a theme:
Blue for a boy and pink for a girl, that’s so old school. This is the time to be a cool mum and pick a theme for your baby’s room as you like. Also, don’t hesitate to match the theme with the rest of your house if you like because your baby won’t care about the theme anyway. It is all about you and how you want things to look.
3. Washables only, please:
Raising a child comes with an additional responsibility of cleaning
everything twice a day. So, you should ensure that every curtain, carpet, rugs and every piece
of article for nursery is durable and easily washable.
4. Everything in reach:
Take it from people who have experienced it beforehand; the baby’s diaper needs to be changed a thousand times in a day. In times like those, nothing irritates a mother more than walking up and down, fetching wipes, tissue and diapers from across the house. You need to keep all the necessary things within your one hand reach so you can change the diaper like a ninja.
5. Baby proof everything:
You just had your baby. You have enough time for baby proofing, right? Wrong. Babies grow in the blink of an eye so you should start baby proofing the house as soon as you can. This will ensure that when your baby starts crawling, his curiosity will not leave him in the face of danger.
6. A chair for those long night:
You might think a comfortable bed will help your baby sleep. But, you couldn’t be more wrong. Most of the times, your baby will sleep only in your hands while you rock him to and fro. So, keeping a comfortable chair in his room that you can sit on while you put him to sleep is a good decision.
There you have it; few things that you need to keep in your mind while decorating your baby’s nursery. And, here’s the most important tip; don’t forget to have fun while you decorate your baby’s room.
