things are as exciting as planning and furnishing the nursery for your baby, it
can become quite emotional and the room will forever stay in your heart. Thank
God, your child is growing rapidly and in a blink of an eye instead of a small
baby you have an active toddler. This means that you will be as active as them,
and that some things in your household should change, including the nursery.
Declutter the Room
foremost, you need to declutter the space: move out all toys,
rocking chair, diapers, baby powder, and wall decorations. Try to think about
it like this: your child is growing up, and they will need some space for
themselves. Toys will probably go back in as well as diapers, but try making
some room for things your child will grow to love: more complex toys and
decorations that reflect their personality best: butterflies, fairies,
dinosaurs, Cookie Monster, etc. Try to accept the fact that this room will be
their own space soon enough.
Change the Bed and Bedding
One of the
things you cannot avoid is changing the bedding and the bed itself. Swap the
old crib for a bigger bed your child will be comfortable in, and buy bedding
that will better reflect your child’s personality and age. As for the crib, you
can always take it apart and store it in the attic for some other time
(perhaps), or you can give it to someone who needs it. Either way, for both
taking it apart and putting together a new bed, make sure you have all the
necessary tools. Check online tool shop to get anything you might need: enough
screws and tape, and the right pliers for the job.
The Question of Storage
notice once you start decluttering, but there are a lot of things in our
nursery. Of course, you cannot leave it empty for our child to fill with toys,
but then again there is no reason for their toys to lie all over the floor;
children trip over them so easily and it is necessary to think about the safety
of the space. Opt to bring in shelves or, if possible, repurpose changing table
into toy storage, and put baby powder, oils, and diapers out of their reach. Their
busy little hands and fast legs will get them anywhere, so it’s better to keep
stuffed toys on lower shelves and anything you might need on higher ones.
Decorate the Place
of pink and light blue are for little children, toddlers love bright colours
and different textures, so you can decorate their room a bit differently. Make
brightly coloured hot air balloons out of paper lanterns and little wicker
baskets, bring in pictures of rockets, dinosaurs, owls, flowers, or wild
animals and watch them stare at these new things with amazement. Even better,
paint a part of the wall with black chalkboard paint and give them coloured
chalks to play with. Any drawings will be easy to wash, and they will be able
to express their creativity freely, without destroying any wallpapers in the
when you’re having fun, and even faster when you are a busy parent with an
active and happy child, so before you know it (and way before you would like)
your snugly baby will grow up. You will watch your child master the art of
walking, crawling, running, climbing, talking, screaming, and making a mess,
and the best thing you can do is keep them as safe as possible until they grow
up into rather independent ‘kindergarten students’.
