4 Tips To Prepare Your Baby's Nursery



Once you and your family learn that you'll be welcoming a new member to your family, it's definitely an exciting time to celebrate. Additionally, it's also a time of a lot of preparation. There are so many decisions to be made and tasks to complete. One of the most major tasks involves preparing the baby's nursery. It might be pretty overwhelming for you to decide what the nursery will look like. In order to keep your stress level down, implement these tips to prepare your baby's nursery.

1. Create an inspiration board.
It's a good idea to create an inspiration board with tons of different ideas for a nursery. Visit a site like Pinterest and create an account. Do a search for nurseries in order to see what other people are creating. Once you compile a mix of nursery pictures that inspire, notice any similarities. If all the nurseries are painted white, that'll be something you'll want to include in your nursery. If all the nurseries have themes surrounding Disney, that might be your starting point.

2. Start with the messier projects first.

Tackle one project at a time. Understand that certain projects are foundational. Knowing this, they need to be completed first. Paint the room first. Make sure that you use surface protection for any major projects in order to protect the floor. Trimaco provides excellent options you can choose from. Additionally, if you're choosing projects that require some level of expertise with electrical wiring, it might be best to call an electrician. If you're hanging a beautiful chandelier in the middle of the room, call an electrician to properly hang it. You don't want to run into any mishaps or accidents as a result of a DIY project gone wrong.


3. Add the necessary furniture pieces.
Furniture is so important for the nursery. Be sure to purchase a great, sturdy crib. To get the most out of your purchase, consider buying a crib that can later transform into a toddler bed. A comfortable rocking chair or glider is essential for a nursery. There will be long, late nights with the baby. Whoever is rocking the baby to sleep needs to be as comfortable as possible. A changing table with sections for the pampers, wipes and other toiletries is essential. A comfortable, plush rug helps to make the room even more cozy and comfortable.

4. Add accent pieces.
Add beautiful accent pieces to make the room look more polished. Add artwork that matches the theme. Leave a picture frame empty to fill it with the new baby's newborn picture. Add shelving to the walls for a few bedtime storybooks and a sound machine. As you continue to add accent pieces, always refer to your inspiration board to figure out additional pieces that can work really well.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic?
