As you will be spending a lot of time in the nursery over the coming months it needs to be practical, comfortable and safe.

There are a few essentials items which all nurseries should have including:

  • Moses basket
    Planning nursery
  • Cot
  • Changing table
  • Blankets
  • Sheets
  • Baby monitors
  • Feeding chair
  • Blackout blind
  • Play cot mobile

First place to start when preparing your nursery is to pick colours and themes. If you have found out the sex of your baby you might want to think of fairies and butterflies for a girls or a jungle or car theme for a boy. If you choose to keep the sex of your baby a secret, warm neutrals like lemon and mint can offer a relaxing atmosphere for mum and baby.

As your baby grows and begins to investigate their nursery it may be worth investing in a home safety kit. This will include socket plugs to protect little fingers, wardrobe and changing unit press clicks to avoid inquisitive little person’s rummaging.

What to avoid in the nursery

  • Keep sharp objects locked away in the changing unit
  • Do not leave open baby toiletries in reach of little fingers
  • Ensure cot is not positioned too close to windows or shelving units
  • Do not use a pillow
  • Bright lighting
