Table of Contents

When it comes to getting your bundle of joy settled in at home, one of the top items on your list is setting up the baby’s nursery. After all, this cozy and inviting space will be where your newborn spends most of their waking (and sleeping!) hours. However, there’s more to creating a safe place for restful sleep than meets the eye: adding certain elements can prove beneficial for better sleep quality and an easier transition into parenthood. Keep reading to learn our tips on how you can set up a baby nursery that’s perfect for snuggles and sweet dreams!

Do babies sleep better in the nursery?

Many parents wonder whether babies sleep better in their nurseries or their parents’ rooms. While having a baby in the same room with you may seem like the most comfortable option for both baby and parent, research has found that babies typically sleep better and longer when they are placed in their own space.

Infants who are exposed to sound outside of their mom and dad’s normal breathing and snoring can also become more used to noises from their environment, which helps them learn to self-soothe when it comes time for sleep. Therefore, having your baby in its nursery is a great way to promote healthy sleeping habits over time.

When should I start setting up the baby nursery?

Setting up a baby nursery is an exciting step for expectant parents! It’s tempting to start organizing and decorating as soon as you find out you’re expecting, but it’s often best to wait until about the third trimester.

Shopping for furniture, paint colors, and decorations can be overwhelming early in the pregnancy, but by your third trimester, you’ll have much more energy, possibly better taste in how you want the room to look, and (of course) know if you’re having a boy or girl so you can adjust accordingly. Then comes the fun part of setting up the nursery — make it unique and special with all those cute touches that will set the tone when your little one finally enters the world. Enjoy!

How do you set up a nursery in a small room?

Setting up a nursery in a smaller room can be challenging, but with some creativity and the right furniture, it’s achievable! When working with a smaller space, look for pieces that serve multiple functions. A crib with drawers underneath or an attached changing table can help maximize floor space. Bookcases are also great for providing storage in a small room, as well as adding an extra design element to make the place more inviting.

Plus, you can use the shelves to display keepsakes or toys. It’s also important to have the proper lighting so you have good visibility when taking care of your little one at night—a wall lamp with dimmer settings should do the trick (just remember safety!). With all these ideas in mind and maybe some fun wall art thrown into the mix, you’ll have a beautiful baby oasis in no time!

How do I put my baby to sleep in the nursery?

Putting your baby to sleep in the nursery can be a daunting task. It’s important to stick to a routine and keep things as consistent as possible. Establish an ideal environment in their room by making sure it is dark, quiet, and cool. Babies love familiarity so using the same song, toy or blanket can help create order and comfort.

Make sure to minimize interactions during sleep time – although a good pat on the back when placing them into bed may go a long way! Above all, be patient and know that you are doing everything possible for your little one’s health and happiness.

What do babies sleep on at nursery?

Babies need a comfortable sleep environment while they’re away from home, and nurseries have the perfect place for that! Most nurseries provide cots and Moses baskets made from sturdy materials like hardwood or plastic.

Additionally, for extra comfort, many nurseries also offer foam mattresses covered in waterproof or breathable sheets to ensure the safety of their tiny guests. Ultimately, not only will your little one be sleeping soundly, but you can have peace of mind in knowing that they are receiving nothing but the best beds for undisturbed sleep.
