Handy -tips: 

Keep your essentials at reach.

Whatever way you wish to decorate your newborn nursery, remember to keep your basic furniture such as the changing table, strategically placed with everything you might need from diapers, wipes, pacifier baby clothes, laundry basket at reach. The last thing you want is to have to leave your baby unattended to grab something you forgot. 

Avoid clutter 

Make room for storage and remember that you will need to carry your baby to sleep at night, breastfeed or soothe a colicky baby, which involves a lot of movement around the room. 

Keep it kid-friendly

Most of us live away from family and friends, that’s why we tend to incorporate our most beloved memories into the nursery decor by framing old photos or personalizing covers, pillows and night lights, but remember to keep those items away from your baby’s crib to avoid any unnecessary harm.

As your child grows a good idea would be to replace the crib with a floor bed, a concept created by Maria Montessori, to promote children’s’ independence and freedom of movement in a safe environment, especially if they are transitioning to a regular bed.

And finally plan for a quick safety check, you would want to keep an eye on your baby even when you are away from the room. You can do so by choosing a baby monitor that give you peace of mind, like night vision video and two-way audio communication.
