How to set up a nursery – A guide for Infant Care



It is truly a joyous time to celebrate the arrival of a new member of the family, and following that arrival comes setting up a perfect nursery to suit your newborn's every need.


When it comes to designing a nursery, it's all about finding the perfect balance between style and function. You should choose a nursery setup that suits your style and is practical whether you're setting up a nursery in your bedroom, a small room, or a separate space.


Create A Nursery Palette


Creating a nursery that is aesthetically pleasing and suits your room style is the first step. This nursery will become a long-term project so it mustn't look out of place in your home.


When choosing palettes for the nursery walls and furniture, it's common to go for pastel colors that are easy on the eyes. Pastel colors create a soft ambience and give off a generally calm and relaxed vibe that babies would like. However, if it does not fit the aesthetic in your home, darker, earthy tones are also an option as it's easy on the eyes for you and the baby.


Once you've collected the designs that draw you in, it's time to move on to the next step.


Plan out the space


Make sure to consider the room's size, shape, natural lighting, and built ins. When designing your baby's nursery, it is important to focus not only on its appearance but also on its practical layout.


When choosing a nursery layout, you should consider factors such as easy access to the changing station, a crib that is placed away from windows to protect the baby from cold drafts and hanging cords, and a nursery chair that can be positioned so you can watch the baby sleep while sitting.


Suggested Layouts for your Nursery


1. Nursery Layout with the crib and nursery chair next to each other


If the nursery is small, this design is a fantastic choice. Giving the room balance, you arrange the crib and nursery chair against the same wall and place the dresser against the other wall.


2. Nursery Layout with the crib placed opposite the nursery chair


The crib should be placed away from big windows. So, to make changing diapers easier, the crib is placed alone in this nursery's arrangement, while the nursery chair and the dresser/change table are across from it.


3. Nursery Layout with the diapering station next to the crib


Here, the nursery's layout maximizes the available space and enhances its functionality. Late-night diaper changes are quick and simple thanks to the diapering station being nearby, and the crib's position away from the window allows warm light to enter the nursery from a distance.


Choose your basic nursery furniture


You should choose the cot, nursery chair, and nursery dresser first because they are the essential components of nursery furniture.

During the first two to three years, your infant will spend a lot of time in the crib. So be sure to pick a crib you adore and consider looking for a crib that can convert to a toddler bed in the future.


Another nursery furniture item that you'll put to good use is a nursery dresser or changing table to set up as a diapering station for the many diaper changes coming your way soon.


Additionally, a nursery chair to create a nursing nook in the nursery. In the early years of the baby's life, you'll spend a lot of time sitting on this chair feeding, comforting, reading, and snuggling with the baby and so choosing the most comfortable nursery chair is a priority.


Making a nursery useful and practical is another step-in nursery setup. To help organize the nursery, think about adding nursery storage options like baskets for toys, a rolling cart for swaddles, and a pegboard for diapering necessities.


The Finishing touches


No matter how big or tiny your nursery is, a few finishing touches can make all the difference. To add your personal touch to the nursery design, update the lighting, lay a rug, and bring in some gorgeous nursery décor pieces.
