Whether it's your first child or you're a pro parent with several births under your belt, expecting can be exciting. Many families funnel that energy into creating the perfect place to bring baby home to: a cozy nursery with all the comforts to keep them happy. Not matter where you are in this process, or what room you're calling the baby nursery, Walmart Canada has products to keep baby comfortable, ensure a visually pleasing space and organize all the essentials.
The crib is the focal point of most nurseries. Choose one that meets both decor and functional needs. Measure your space before buying a crib to ensure it fits, and consider your own height. You'll want to be able to lower baby easily to the mattress to avoid waking him as you put him to bed after rocking him to sleep.
What goes in and on the crib is important too. Start with a crib mattress that provides ergonomic support for your sleeping child. Since you can buy mattresses that fit both cribs and toddler beds, you can feel better splurging on a luxe foundation for baby dream land. Add a mattress pad for more comfort and to protect the foundation below from the inevitable night-time diaper leak.
Finish the look and functionality with baby bedding that matches the nursery decor theme. Remember that infants usually don't need more than a fitted sheet, a safety bumper and a light blanket in their bed. You may want to ensure warmth at night with cozy sleepers instead of crib bedding, as they can be a choking hazard for the youngest family members.
Cap it all off with a baby mobile to keep your little one entertained during rest time or sooth her to sleep at night.
Room décor can be difficult to incorporate in a space where a small person will soon be totting about, but wall art is usually a safe bet. You can choose wood framed pictures that are likely to grow with baby, such as animals or other timeless things. Those can then be easily incorporated into his room as he gets older. If you want to add some fun baby-themed images, consider wall decals, which can be easily removed and replaced through the seasons.
Don't forget the functionality of the rest of the nursery space. Add a rocking chair to one corner for sweet bedtime moments, and you might consider a changing table to make night-time nappy swaps and getting baby dressed in the morning easier. For now, you can concentrate on functionality and storage, but remember that in just a few months or a year, baby will be ready to explore her own space, and you'll want to be able to provide entertainment and play opportunities that are safe.
