During the first year of life, your baby will spend up to 70% of his or her time in the baby crib you choose. The baby crib is one of the most important investments you will make before your baby arrives.
Take an honest look at how much space you have and prioritize what items have to go in the nursery and what can go in another room in the house. The crib and a few other necessities will need to go in your little one’s room, but think outside the box for the rest. Consider putting toys in the living room, for example.
Most parents choose to put their newborn babies in their bedroom with them at first so they can hear them when they wake up. Most master bedrooms have closets. You may want to reconsider using your walk-in closet and turn it into a baby nursery. Remove shelves and take the door off to make the room brighter. Use the corners to install furniture for baby things. Give the walls a touch of fresh paint and bring a baby bed into the room.
As an adult with experience in a situation like this, I can tell you that the next project is totally worth your efforts. What experience? Crawling in the crib myself to sooth a young crying lad of two. I don’t know what was worse; A.) The idea of climbing in, B.) The act of climbing in, C.) The fear of getting stuck, or D.) The fear of the crib collapsing… which would leave my sister-in-law bereft of the opportunity to complete this project come ten years down the road.
