A few things no nursery should be without:

  • A rocker, or glider, where your memories will begin with you gently rocking your baby to sleep, or holding him for that last little cuddle before bedtime.
  • A comfortable chair is very important in any nursery.
  • A table or table and chairs, which may not be used immediately, but in the very near future will see your child seated there coloring, having a tea party or just day dreaming.
  • A toy chest, preferably with a padded top, that doubles as a bench seat, but at the least protects a toddler from injury if there is a fall in the nursery.
  • A changing table that will allow you to stand and put your baby at a comfortable height to change and dress them.
  • A few additional touches will be a diaper holder for the wall, perhaps a foot stool for the front of the rocker or chair, to enable you to put your feet up and be comfortable while you sit.
  • A few scatter rugs to inject some color and a touch of whimsy into the nursery.
