Create The Perfect Nursery For Your Little One

Do I need a nursery room?

There is no definite answer, as each family's needs vary. Some families may find that they need a nursery room to provide a dedicated room for the baby, while others may not need one at all. Ultimately, it is up to the parents to decide what is best for their family.

When should you start on the nursery room?

The earlier you start, the better. Look at how much space you have. If you have a lot of extra space in your home, you may be able to wait until later to set up the nursery. However, if you are tight on space, you may need to start sooner.

Another thing to keep in mind is how much work you want to do yourself. If you are willing and able to do a lot of the work yourself, you can wait longer before starting on the nursery. If you would rather hire someone else to do most of the work for you, you will have to work on it earlier.

How do I plan for the nursery room?

When planning for the nursery room, you will first need to decide what you want the space to be used for. Some parents may want a separate space for the baby to sleep in, others may want a space for the baby to play in, or both.

Once you have decided these things, you can start working on putting together a plan for the nursery room. This plan can include what furniture you want in the room, what colours you would like to use, and what theme you would like to go with. Having a plan before starting on the nursery room can help make sure that everything comes out exactly how you want it.

What do I need in the nursery room?

There are essential and nice-to-have things in a nursery room. The basic items you need are:

  • Cot or bassinet for your baby to sleep in
  • Baby bedding items such as cot mattress, mattress protector and cot sheets
  • Baby quilt
  • Change table
  • Dresser to keep baby's clothes if you don't have a wardrobe or dresser in the room.

Some cribs can be converted to a toddler bed when your baby grows up. This is considered a good investment. And if you spend a lot of time nursing in the room, or the room is also a playroom, consider these items: 

You can use pieces that you already have. Just make sure that they are in good condition and safe for the baby.

How do I decorate the nursery room?

It's all up to you. Let your imagination run wild.

When decorating the nursery room, think about what you want the space to feel like. Do you want it to be calm and relaxing? Some parents prefer a neutral theme with soothing colours.

Or do you want it to be fun and playful? You can mix and match different colours and themes to create the perfect look for your baby's room. Popular nursery room themes are safari, sea, flowers, and jungle based.

Finally, don't forget about the details. You can add things like curtains, nursery rugs, and wallpaper to really make the nursery room stand out. By taking your time and planning everything out, you can create a beautiful space that your baby will love spending time in.

Where is the best place to put a baby cot in the nursery?

You can place it anywhere in the room that provides a comfortable and quiet place for your baby to sleep. As a general guideline, avoid putting directly under a vent or near a heater or cooler. Be careful of shared walls as your baby may wake up easily from any commotion next door. And never place it near a window blind cord that is easily accessible. Babies and toddler can get strangled by cords if not careful.
