You have a baby on the way!
Browse through our list of things to consider before your little one arrives…
1) Changing diapers is going to be a regular occurrence in your life after your baby arrives. Make sure your changing table is well placed and all the necessities are within easy reach so that you don’t have to twist and turn to reach essential items.
2) Think washable paint and wallpaper for your little one’s nursery. Accidents do happen!
3) Create an uncluttered nursery by adding plenty of storage space for the baby’s many essentials and avoid any potential hazards when making your way through the nursery in the dark.
4) Is the crib the right height for you? Look for a model that has an adjustable mattress height to avoid any back strain.
5) Heavy blinds or block-out curtains will prevent the nursery from getting too hot during the day and help the baby to sleep longer and be more comfortable.
6) A dimmer switch is a must on any overhead lighting fixtures and a night light is essential for late night feeds and provides safety and comfort.
7) Stock up on necessities well ahead of babies arrival and pack them away, getting a head start will prevent any anxiety or stress.
8) Don’t forget to include a comfortable chair for night-feeds or when soothing your baby.
9) Give your home a safety check. Babies become mobile practically overnight and it’s easier to check before you become sleep deprived. Install safety latches for any cabinets or drawers within reach. Cover any electrical outlets and place corner guards on furniture. Make sure there are no dangling cords from window blinds or appliances. And secure any top heavy furniture likely to topple if baby uses it to pull herself up.
10) Lastly…consider preparing meals in advance and freezing them. Having tasty meals on hand makes life so much easier once baby arrives.This is your blog post.
