Some Cool Ideas For Decorating Your Baby's Nursery And Making It Safe

Aug 17, 2007
Decorating a room for your new baby can be exciting. If you've discovered what the gender of your child is, then there is nothing holding you back from decking the nursery out accordingly. There is nothing more wonderful than planning the nursery. It is a good idea to have the room ready for your newborn baby as they return from the hospital.

You want your baby's first impression to be a good one, right? To create a cozy, secure room, you should have bright, stimulating colors strategically placed throughout the room. You can also place black and white mobiles around. Many decorated with these ideas for a while, under the thought that items such as these would help the baby's eyes develop. Beware, though. Some colors can distract your child, making him or her restless, which can result in crabbiness.

There are some safety guidelines to follow when it comes time to pick out a crib. For one, be sure that you get a firm mattress for your baby. Also, try to make the mattress a soft pastel color. Though color doesn't matter too much, some colors are thought to be more restful (blues and greens, for instance).

Once you buy the crib, you should know what to put (or not put) in it. It is important to keep potentially harmful objects (like blankets, stuffed animals, blankets, pillows, or sheets) out of the crib. Blankets, pillows, and sheets should wait to be placed in the crib for about a year. The reason for this: knowing that your baby's face is clear at all times, and the danger of suffocation is minimal.

A good decorating tip: if you already have a baby blanket, put it on the wall for decoration until your baby is older and can use it. After taking the objects out, there is still the danger of your child rolling on his or her stomach. Some parents purchase a small foam wedge so that they can position the baby and therefore prevent this potential-harm.

One way to ensure the safety of your baby is through a baby monitor. You place one in their room and keep one with you and you can hear your child at all times. Some baby monitors these days actually have video so that you can see your child as he or she sleeps!

Another basic, generic rule is to simply keep the entire room clean and fresh. Keep the room genuinely pleasant. If you use scents of some sort, make sure it is subtle. Try to avoid letting dust settle. You child will be in a healthy safe environment.

Following the basic tips of color usage, safe cribs, baby monitors, and a clean environment should create an ideal environment for your baby. It will be a safe, cozy place, which your child will feel, making your child feel secure and restful.
