So you’re having a baby. Congratulations. Now it’s time to get your house in order and make sure your baby’s room has what’s needed.
Here’s a helpful starter checklist to set you off confidently in the right direction:
1. Colour: When selecting paint colours for your baby room, stick to soft tones and pastel colours. Strong, bold colours tend to be over-stimulating. Also, select a paint that is low or no-VOC (volatile organic compounds) to ensure a non-toxic environment.
2. Baby furniture: We recommend selecting a cot that converts to a small child’s bed. As well as resulting in more value for your dollar, this also allows your baby to grow into and retain this as its own little space for years.
3. Accessories & Dcor: Baby mobiles are wonderful for engaging your little one, but we recommend avoiding hanging them over where your baby sleeps – the stimulus a mobile provides is best confined to day ‘active’ areas such as over a change table or in a ‘play’ section of the room.
Your baby’s first room is important, with consideration given to ensure its both calm and can grow and develop with your baby’s personality.
However, at the end of the day, the most important thing you baby needs is you, so don’t let this process stress you out.
It should be exciting. It should be fun. It signals the beginning of a new chapter in your life and preparing this space should be filled with joy, not anxiety.
