Congratulations! You are officially a parent to a bouncing baby. As a first time mom you had already bought things read a lot of books about parenting. You suddenly realized that you have to decorate the nursery room. You can do it yourself or hire someone for the interior design services. Here are some things to include in your list.
1. Open Baskets. Your top priority as a new mom will be easy access to things especially when you’re cradling your baby in your arms and only have one hand to rummage for clothing or diaper. You’re probably used to hiding clutter inside lidded boxes or drawers, that’s why open bins and baskets are a nursery essential. You’ll always be able to grab what you need in a second — even when your newborn refuses to let you put him down.
2. A Night-Light. Your baby won’t be afraid of the dark for another year at least so the mood lighting in your baby’s bedroom isn’t for his sake just yet. But a night-light or a dimmer switch from Dubai interior design companies is a nursery essential to keep you (and your partner) from stubbing your toes when you stumble in at 2 a.m. for a feeding. Plus, the night-light’s mellow glow (rather than the glare of a bright bulb) will help your baby learn to distinguish between night and day. What else can help your baby drift off to dreamland once you’re done feeding? Keep your voice soft and soothing, and post-feeding.
3. A Fan. Having an air conditioner is a must, but an electric fan does more than cool off the nursery during naptime. It’s actually a smart source of white noise and masks other household noises, from ringing doorbells to yipping dogs. For another white-noise source, try setting the radio dial between stations for the sweet static sound.
4. A Bouncer Seat. A bouncer seat cradles your baby better than a crib mattress does, and its rocking or vibrating movements can mimic the motion of mom’s body. By reserving the crib for naps and nights, you’ll provide your baby with a valuable lesson: crib-time equals sleepy-time. Just be sure yourbaby is securely strapped into hisbouncer and never let him alone when he’s in it.
5. A Journal. During those early days and nights, keep a notebook and pencil in the baby’s bedroom. Jot down when he napped, pooped, and ate, and you’ll know when he’s likely to eat or sleep the time next. You will notice when something’s off schedule. While you’re at it, turn the baby log into a mini-journal. Capture those first milestones in your baby’s life.
