Essential Nursery Furniture

However you choose to decorate their space, you’ll also need to ensure that you have all the essential nursery furniture for care and comfort purposes.

A Moses Basket Or A Cot

Every new parent knows the importance of sleep – for mums and dads as well as babies! As with all nursery furniture, your top priority should be safety.

With this in mind, both Moses baskets and cots provide a cosy and safe space for your child. While Moses baskets are a popular pick for newborn babies due to their compact size, cots allow more space for when your child grows.

Alongside a reliable bed, a baby monitor is key for giving you peace of mind while they rest.

A Nursing Pillow

Nursing can be a wonderful bonding experience between you and your child. Whether you’ve decided to breastfeed or not, your baby’s head will need to be supported while they feed. For this reason, a good-quality nursing pillow is a must.

Luckily, nursing pillows can also double up for tummy time exercises, making them a win-win.

A Changing Mat

There’s bound to be more than a few nappy emergencies to deal with as your child develops and grows. To make sure you’re always prepared, invest in a changing mat and a changing bag.

Helping you to keep your child clean and comfortable in their nursery as well as on the go, we recommend choosing a design with a fun print to let yours stand out from the crowd.

Nappies, wipes and a disposal system are other crucial items to stock up on for a fuss-free changing experience.

Baby Toys

No nursery would be complete without a handful of engaging baby toys. Encouraging their cognitive skills, play is a fundamental part of your child’s development.

From soft toys and baby bouncers to mini gyms, anything that lets your child stretch and play is a worthwhile investment.

Unisex Baby Clothes

Preparing your little one’s wardrobe is one of the most exciting parts of expecting. Even so, it’s easy to get carried away with so many sweet sleepsuits, all in ones and tops to choose from.

If you’re not sure where to begin, unisex baby clothing is a great place to start. Not only does unisex clothing follow the theme of your gender-neutral nursery, but the pieces can also be re-used later down the line by friends and family members.
