One of my fondest dreams when I was pregnant with the girls was to have a room dedicated to caring for them. I wanted the crib, the diaper changing table set, the rocking chair, the fluffies, the ruffles, the lace and the stuffing on a huge nursing sofa with foot rest.
*Sigh* I still do, even if getting the girls to sleep in their own space would be a challenge now especially since we’e co-slept since Day 1. Oona just started bunking in the “princess bed” (her cousin’s huge crib with a canopy I made out my sari and old sheer curtains decorated with cloth flowers) I made her and it took us months to prep her and get her used to the idea. Even so, it’s parked next to the family bed where she can just reach over and hold my hand while we whisper stories before going to sleep.
Baby Nursery Rooms was created by Robin, a new mom too, because she was always on the look out for ideas on the best baby gear and decor. She was inspired to create a place where parents could find all the information they needed in one place. So Baby Nursery Rooms was born, dedicated to helping new parents create a safe and soothing nursery for their new child.
I love that it’s chock-ful of helpful tips, advice and articles for so many things (with lots of the lovely pictures to look at)!
Since safety has always been the topmost priority of parents worldwide though, Robin’s section on nursery safety should actually be the first thing to visit. There’s an article about Baby CPR and it’s really something every new parent should know how to do. I’m guilty about this as the best I can do by way of emergency aid is thump their backs when they’re choking.) Knowing how to do CPR on babies would save lives and a lot of parents a ton of grief in emergencies. (Okay, will find nearest classes and enroll.)
Next up on my list of browses is the section on choosing decor and products to fit your baby’s needs, gender and your own preferences. It has always been a challenge, of course. You already know that you’re going to have a hand at influencing this little person’s sense and perception of the world right? So every detail counts. At least Robin’s narrowed down the choices to the classy, tasteful, kid-and-parent friendly choices.
Then if you like parties (like I do, especially if it’s for the kids!), there’s a section for throwing a great baby shower. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled I was when some old friends threw me a surprise one when I was preggy with Oona. You don’t have to wait for others to throw you a party, actually. Have one *after* you give birth, all the better for friends to already know what gifts to bring your little one.
Lastly, browsing through the super adorable nursery themes section has me really wanting to have another baby again, if only to have another shot at that dream nursery! (RF faints here. )
Robin really put together a great place to find ideas and advice not only on decor but about being a parent who cares about the safety and well-being of their child.
Congratulations on a great site, Robin!
