Having a baby is something that completes a couple. And the heavenly feelings is something that can only be understood by parents. If you are a mother like me, I know you want to do and give everything to your baby just to make her happy.
Since the newborn baby will spend most of the time in the nursery, you should decorate it as beautifully as possible. Here are some ideas to help you out:
A Beautiful Crib: This is where your baby gonna spend most of the time. So you need one of the best affordable cribs that match your taste and the nursery interior. You can buy it from any of the local store or from online. But from wherever you decide to buy, you need to get the safest one. There are lots of incidents of crib accidents just in the U.S.A.
To find a safe nursery crib, make sure it meets all the federal and international safety standards like U.S. CPSC and ASTM International safety standards. If the crib is GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFIED, it is a safe one as well.
If you have small space in the nursery, make sure to have a mini crib to save some space. But if there is a plenty of space in the baby room, make sure to have a standard size crib. Having a standard size crib is a money and time-saving decision.
Buying a convertible crib is a wise decision because you can convert it to a toddler bed and a full-size bed. If you have something else in your mind and want to have one of the best kids beds when the time comes, that is okay as well. A lot of parents buy toddler bed separately.
Comfortable Crib Mattress: After getting the crib, you need a comfortable crib mattress. Choosing the mattress for kid is a little bit tricky and confusing for the new parent. Most of the parents want to have a soft mattress because they are accustomed to it and they think it will ensure the maximum comfort. Whereas this is somewhat true but the case is totally different for the newborn baby. Why?
For the newborn, the chance of SIDS is higher than 6 months older baby. You may notice that a newborn tends to sleep on her belly and that’s where the danger comes from. A soft surface mattress multiplies the chance of SIDS rapidly.
That’s why you should never ever buy a soft surface crib mattress. Don’t get tensed over the comfort of your newborn. Safety comes first. Your baby will quickly adjust the hard surface. And don’t go for a cheap mattress. Any decent crib mattress should cost you over $150.
Musical Mobile: You need to do a lot of other things apart from taking care of the newborn. You need to make food for the baby, wash her dresses and towels or maybe cooking food for the family as well. So during your ‘Extra Chore Activities’ what the baby will do?
Will she remain calm in her crib? Nope! Most of the time she will start crying whenever she is awake alone. If you buy the best baby mobile, it can do the magic during this time.
A musical crib mobile with a projector is a true friend of you and your newborn in many ways. You baby will love the soothing music. There are usually 20 to 40 minutes continuous non-repetitive to calm your baby. The projector displays baby’s favorite light show. And usually, there are 3 to 5 toys of friendly animals to keep company when your baby is alone.
All the things help to go to her sleep as well. Even most child experts suggest that a crib mobile is useful for baby’s brain development as well.
Crib Bedding Sets: So, let’s see what a crib bedding set includes. Usually, with a crib bedding set, you will get diaper stacker, bumper, crib sheet, decorative pillows, toy bags etc. As you can see these items are not must to have but really essential to decorate your newborn’s room and to organize stuff in the nursery.
You should get a matching crib bedding set with your nursery for a coordinated look. There are lots of brands like DK Leigh, SoHo, Nojo, and Fisher-Price that offers beautiful crib bedding sets.

Usually, you should be able to get a decent crib bedding set within $100 from any online store even for the kids travel crib. Just read some reviews first before you make the final decision of buying it.
