Parents are always excited when the time comes to buy baby furniture. It is hard to resist to a variety of things available and sometimes we are buying more than it’s necessary which making costs too high quickly. That is why with some things you shouldn’t hurry but leave them for later. Such items are feeding seats, high chairs, safety gates etc. You will need them when your baby is able to sit and walk.
Some baby furniture is necessary immediately and that is a dresser, changing table (with storage for diapers, towels, clean wipes etc.), crib with good matress (it is important where your baby sleeps) and bassinet.
Later you may need more baby furniture such as play yard, toy chest (when your family and friends start bringing gifts), hamper, chair which must be comfortable and some additional storage.
Before you start buying, decide about nursery theme. Idea for nursery room can be found anywhere so start surfing the net. For boys you may like something sport related, planes, cars, animals or bikes. Girls would like to see many dolls, flowers, fairies, unicorns, princesses etc.
If baby room not too big you will see how important is to save every inch of space. That is why toy chest is one of ‘must buy’ items for your baby’s room.
The most important piece of baby furniture is a bed for your baby. That will depend on the money you are ready to spend, design you want to see in that room. Some parents choose basic baby crib and some like more high tech furniture such as baby crib on batteries which will rock your baby while you have some work or at night. Don’t forget the baby crib will be used only a few months until baby starts to move and roll.
If you travel much then you may need travel cot and later even car seat, to keep your baby with you wherever you may go. For baby’s bed you will need one good comfortable mattress, a few soft pillows, sheets and waterproof cover for the mattress. Avoid too many pillows and toys in bed which can make bed less comfortable for the baby.
The easiest way is to buy all these items online because you can easily check cost and compare all stores not only prices but also quality and their reviews. You won’t have to walk around much and that will save time and money.
