Accessories such as picture frames, lamps and artwork, are a great way to add fun, pattern and color without much expense. Room accessories like the distressed white wooden letters hung from blue gingham ribbon add a distinctive, personal touch to the nursery. When designing a nursery, creating a cute themed room is important but creating an intellectually stimulating, safe, spacious environment should be the central focus.
Cribs: Make sure you choose a crib made of solid, sustainable wood, treated with non–toxic paint, finishes, or stains. Crib Mattresses: It's recommended by experts that you pick a natural mattress made of wool, organic cotton or 100% natural latex. Natural mattresses tend to be more expensive, so if you do select a conventional mattress, purchase an organic mattress protector to help protect the baby. Also, air the mattress out for a couple of months before placing it on the crib.
What kinds of things do you need to create a safe haven and optimal sleep environment? The trend for awhile was to have bright, stimulating colors in the nursery or mobiles in black and white to help the baby’s eyes develop. This faded from popularity pretty quickly as parents found out all that trendy stuff wasn’t conducive to sleep!
Until the baby is at least a year old, you don’t want to use sheets or blankets. A comforter or quilt should be for decoration only in that first year. Make sure the baby’s sleepwear is clean and soft and appropriate for her age and for the weather. You don’t want them too warm or too light, as babies can’t regulate their own body temperatures at first.
