Arranging Baby Nursery Furniture
Welcoming a newborn into the world is the most exciting time in a couple’s life. However, before the little one arrives, parents must design and set up the baby’s new room. Once moms and dads bring home baby nursery furniture, they will need to arrange the items in a functional and safe manner. Here are several tips to arrange your baby nursery furniture. The crib should be placed away from a drafty or hot and sunny window, and window treatments. Curtains, and all soft fabrics, are a suffocation hazard, and corded blinds create a strangulation danger. Angling the crib out from a corner can keep dangerous elements at a safe distance. Your baby will sleep better if the crib is against a wall adjoining a quiet room rather than a noisy one like a bathroom. Then, place the nursery rocker, glider or easy chair conveniently, such as next to the crib. You’ll appreciate a side table positioned next to the chair. On the table, have a lamp for dim lighting, and wipes for spills or spit-up.
In your baby’s first few months, you’ll change about 10 diapers a day, making a change station very handy. Position it next to another baby nursery furniture such the dresser or closet, so you can easily reach clean outfits as needed. Store diapers and wipes on the station’s shelf. Use a high shelf that’s within your reach, but out of your baby’s, for decorative elements, such as favorite toys and photos, and small choking hazards, such as diaper pins. A high shelf also is a safe place for toxic or unsafe necessities, such as lotions, baby oil and baby powder.
