5 Important Baby Items You Need To Have In Your Nursery

Every new parent wants what is best for their baby, and ensuring their nursery is well-equipped is no exception. A well-stocked baby nursery provides the baby’s comfort and helps make the parents’ life more effortless and more manageable, as well as providing a loving environment for their baby to grow and thrive in.

But it can be easy for parents to go, well, a bit overboard with it! The reality is that your baby’s nursery doesn’t need to have a lot of furniture in it, especially in those first few months.`q

So, what is essential? In this article, 5 critical items that every baby nursery should have will be explored, so you can have an idea of what is needed for your baby.

1. Crib or Basket

The crib is arguably an essential piece of furniture in the baby’s nursery. A good crib or Moses basket should be sturdy, have adjustable height levels, and meet safety standards set by organizations such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The mattress should be firm and fit snugly in the crib to prevent any gaps which could pose a suffocation risk. Consider purchasing a few waterproof mattress protectors to keep the mattress clean and hygienic at all times.

2. Rocking Chair or Glider

A rocking chair or glider can be an invaluable tool for parents to soothe their baby to sleep. A comfortable chair is crucial for middle-of-the-night feedings and for those moments when you want to spend some quality bonding time with your precious bundle, having skin-to-skin contact. A rocking chair or glider can also be used for bonding and to help establish a sleep routine. Any comfortable chair will work though, and make sure you include lots of cushions to provide support for your back and arms.

3. Changing Table and Pad

A changing table with a pad provides a safe and convenient place to change your baby’s diapers. The table should have a secure and sturdy design and come equipped with storage space for baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, and ointments. Adjustable height for a changing table is nice, but it is not always essential. The changing pad should be waterproof and easy to clean with the wipe of a cloth.

4. Dresser

A dresser is another essential piece of furniture for storing your baby’s clothes, linens, and other essentials. Choose a dresser with drawers that glide smoothly and have safety stops to prevent accidental injuries. The dresser should be at a comfortable height for the parents, allowing them to easily access and organize baby items without needing to bend down. Mums who have had a c-section will undoubtedly appreciate this!

5. Sound Machine or Nightlight

A sound machine or nightlight can be a lifesaver for parents and babies. A sound machine can play soothing sounds, or you can get a white noise machine. This will help your baby to fall asleep and stay asleep, especially if it is a white noise machine that is designed for babies and plays sounds that mimic a loud thumping. A nightlight can provide a soft glow to help you check on your baby during the night without disturbing their sleep. Both items can help create a peaceful and relaxing environment in the baby’s nursery.
