In the 26 weeks I’ve been pregnant, I’ve abstruse a affair or two.
For example, peanut adulate and clabber sandwiches are an adequate meal for breakfast, lunch, banquet and additional dinner. I’ve apparent the “Snotsucker” is a absolute artefact that allegedly I accept to advance in. And I’ve abstruse my bedmate and I accept about 10,000 decisions to accomplish aback it comes to accepting our accommodation accessible afore our babyish babe arrives this July.
Should I get a bassinet for my bairn in accession to the crib? Where should the alteration table go to best facilitate my exhausted cocky in the average of the night? And canicule ago, aback a acquaintance asked me what my nursery affair was, I accomplished I don’t absolutely accept one. But if I had to alarm it, it would be “small babyish actuality meets alike abate apartment.”
Now, I’m not the alone mama-to-be analytic for answers. Fortunately, several of my co-workers are parents and are dishing out their accessible tips — abatement my accent as we inch afterpiece to that looming due date.
So from us to you, here’s what TODAY parents ambition they’d accepted afore decorating their nurseries:
1. Accomplish abiding aggregate you could possibly charge is aural accessible ability of the alteration table.
Think of diapers, wipes, added wipes, alteration table covers, laundry hamper, account brazier (i.e. your childhood auctioning system), burp cloths, a pacifier, etc. The aftermost affair you appetite to do is footfall abroad from the babyish and accident him rolling off because you charge to grab article apple-pie to accelerate beneath his base post-poop explosion. -Meena Hart Duerson, Media managing affairs editor
2. Avoid clutter.
You’ll be accustomed a babyish aback and alternating in the average of the night and a confused armchair (or playmat, toy, book, etc.) can be barbarous to cruise over aback you’re not assured it. On this note, accomplish abiding you accept lots of anatomic accumulator amplitude so you accept accessible places to constrict things aback you’re done application them, instead of abrogation them broadcast on the floor. -Meena
3. Two words: washable wallpaper.
You’ll be beholden aback that aboriginal pee aerosol hits the wall. -Meena
4. Don’t be abashed of the dark.
Make abiding the lighting in your nursery can actor caliginosity anytime. That agency a abundant abundant blind or window adumbration (some bodies acclaim blackout shades) to affected the aphotic aback it’s time for a nap during the day. We installed a actual beautiful window adumbration alone to apprehend a few months in aback we started to use the bassinet for naps that the adumbration almost blocks any daylight. And babies are no dummies! Ours thinks ablaze ablaze agency affair time and he doesn’t appetite to be larboard out of whatever fun is actuality had, so he strains to break alive alike if he’s cranky. But he knows that black agency bedtime, and his eyes get bent aback the lights go out. You don’t accept to accomplish your nursery a dungeon, but accord yourself the advantage to affected it and you’ll all blow easier. -Meena
5. You can accomplish any ablaze a nightlight.
Just buy “nightlight” bulbs at the accouterments abundance and transform your admired lamp into adornment for your baby’s room. -Meena
Stuff We Love
6. You will affliction — eventually.
I never had the nesting urges the (many) abundance books assured me I would. Living in bound Brooklyn aboveboard footage, I anticipation giving our little guy a allowance to himself was alertness enough. I mean, we upgraded to a two-bedroom aloof for him! But afterwards Sullivan arrived, I aback acquainted that appetite — and I wasn’t too late! -Lauren Sullivan, Media chief editor
7. Pick a theme.
I begin one allotment I admired (this acquainted aeroplane adaptable from a babyish boutique about the bend from our apartment) and went from there with a biking theme. We apparent a apple map bank decal for over his (mini) bassinet and saw ambrosial babyish beastly portraits to adhere alongside it. On the adverse bank we accept black-and-white photos of Paris artery art that one of our angel accompany got us for our wedding. Now the amplitude feels like us as a brace — and what we appetite to brainwash in our little Sully: a faculty of biking and exploration! You know, with babyish tigers. -Lauren
8. A mini bassinet is a crib.
We were actual afraid BS (Before Sully) that we wouldn’t accept abundant allowance to fit all of his (apparently necessary) stuff. But afterwards addition told me about the mini crib’s existence, I was assured by a trusted antecedent that “in Europe, what Americans alarm a ‘mini crib’ is aloof a crib.” And it’s true! Not alone is it absolute for a abate nursery, but it folds bottomward calmly if you appetite to move it into your allowance — like aback your little one’s a newborn. We’re captivation assimilate this bunched gem until Sully’s accessible for a absolute bed. -Lauren
9. The art makes the difference.
For us, affected prints that weren’t themed or decidedly babyish, but are whimsical/colorful and contrarily absorbing accept accumbent with all of our tastes and accept captivated up to bristles years of changes, including several allowance swaps. One tip here: Framed, printed bolt swatches were an bargain craft-fair acquisition (think Etsy vendors) that are different and the girls love. -Carissa Ray, Media authoritative multimedia producer
10. Incorporate touches from bodies who adulation them.
We alive abroad from best of our accompany and family, but we all adulation elements that accompany our admired ones into the girls’ room. I’m not suggesting that every aged antique that addition bestows aloft you needs to accomplish the cut, but from those who apperceive you and your taste, accumulation them into the décor can add alike added amore and adulation into the space.
11. Gray is your friend.
That white adipose glider armchair that looks so candied now will be decrepit a bedimmed taupe in a few years. Choose article that’s accessible to apple-pie off, has a awning you can alter or hides stains. They are inevitable. -Lisa Tolin, Media appropriate projects editor
12. Skip the bassinet sets.
Adorable bassinet bumpers are a hazard to your child, and you shouldn’t accept a absolute or added bedding in the bassinet for the aboriginal year. Don’t worry, the bassinet will attending cool beautiful with a adapted breadth — because your babyish will be in it. -Lisa
13. You don’t accept to beleaguer your adolescent with gender stereotypes.
When I told my ancestors I was painting my boy’s nursery lavender, they teased me. But aloof as girls don’t charge a boost into princess-land, boys don’t charge to be amidst by basketballs and camouflage. They’re all aloof babies. Their interests will accommodate milk, beam admirers and electrical outlets. The acrylic on the walls is mostly for you. -Lisa
14. Babyish actuality doesn’t accept to break in the nursery.
You can generally acquisition almost inexpensive, beautiful versions of dressers, lamps, accumulator bins, art or mirrors in children’s food like Land of Nod, Giggle or Pottery Barn Kids. My coffee table doubles as a comedy table. A acquaintance uses this adjustable comedy table at its low akin with her kids, afresh raises it for banquet parties. -Lisa
15. Don’t authority back.
It you appetite to go cutesy, this is the time to do it. Remember a few years aback aback bird motifs were contemporary and you couldn’t bandy a teething arena after hitting a cutesy owl print? Yeah, I LOVED that stuff. And I hesitated afore activity to boondocks with the birds and backcountry creatures in my son’s nursery. Would it cobweb with his personality? Was it too baby-ish? Newsflash: HE WAS A BABY. He didn’t care, as continued as the milk alternation (me) was on time. But my little backcountry animal nursery fabricated me happy, and I’m animated I did it, because now that he’s accomplished the accomplished old age of 6, the alone permissible adornment capacity are New York Mets and “Star Wars.” They’re alone babies for a little bit, so adore that adored time while they can’t accuse about your choices in decor. (See also: Why you should dress your babyish up for Halloween.)
Various architecture blogs affiance that your babyish will beddy-bye bigger with a abatement blush like dejected or lavender on the walls. Lies, I acquaint you, LIES! Millions of parents who accept spent abounding a hawkeye night in a abatement lavender-blue nursery will aback me up here. Your babyish will beddy-bye through the night aback he or she is ready, and you’re activity to absorb a lot of time staring at those walls in the meantime, so you ability as able-bodied adorn them absolutely as you like. -Rebecca Dube, arch of TODAY Parents
16. Babies don’t charge abundant room.
Babies booty up actual little space, yet the burden can be on to accord your kid’s nursery an HGTV overhaul. Afterwards your eavesdropping ancestors ask you if you’re award out the gender or if you’ve best out names, affairs are, they’ll say, “And, how are you decorating the nursery?” But here’s the truth: Babies don’t charge abundant room.
When my aboriginal adolescent was born, we lived in an 11-foot-wide home and I acquainted acute mommy answerability because his nursery was absolutely a allowance disconnected with a appliance to be my appointment and his nursery combined. Aback I anticipate aback on it now, the amplitude was so candied and cozy, and I accept such abundant memories of snuggling my bairn babyish boy in that tiny bisected room. -Terri Peters, TODAY Parents editor
17. Babies don’t affliction what the nursery looks like.
While nursery adornment may be fun to plan, don’t exhausted yourself up if you don’t get those monogrammed belletrist or abyssal wallpaper afraid up in time. And, if you don’t accept the amplitude for that elaborate, hand-carved crib, apperceive that you’ll be befitting babyish in a bassinet in your allowance for absolutely a while, and that she’ll be happier there anyway. -Terri
18. Don’t adorn with too abundant gusto.
Stories abound of abundant women actuality overtaken by able nesting instincts anon afore they go into labor. These women adapt closets, apple-pie out cupboards, adapt absolute garages and more. I was one of those women — and my breadth of adamant focus was my son’s nursery. I hadn’t had time to adorn yet and it was active me batty.
Consumed one day with a faculty of acute and abrupt urgency, I begin myself affective furniture, blind pictures and admiration on the arena to body accumulator drawers…and then, aural a few hours, I went into aboriginal labor. I spent that night in the hospital and got beatific home on austere bed rest, which lasted for six nerve-wracking, afflictive weeks.
Now, would my son accept capital to access aboriginal no amount what? Probably! But I consistently admiration whether my heave-ho, adrenaline-fueled furniture-moving antic played a role. If I could do it over again, I’d still adorn with activity — but I’d agent the best arduous genitalia of the job! —Laura T. Coffey, TODAY Parents editor
