Set up the baby room - what you really need!

Congratulations on the imminent arrival of your baby! Now it's time to set up the baby's room. There are a few important things to consider in order to make the room not only beautiful, but also functional. In this article you will find out what you really need to set up the perfect baby room and which things you should better leave out.

The right furniture

The heart of the baby room is the furniture. You should pay particular attention to the following things:

  • Cot: The cot should be safe and stable. There are models with and without bars, depending on what you like better. Make sure the crib has an adjustable mattress height so you can adjust it to your baby's size.

  • Changing table: A changing table is very practical to be able to change your baby comfortably and safely. It should have enough storage space for diapers, clothes and toiletries.

  • Closet: A closet is important to keep your baby's clothes organized. Make sure it offers enough space and is well thought out. Tip: An open wardrobe can be very practical because you can see everything at a glance.

The right lighting

Good lighting is very important in the baby room. Here you should make sure that you have different light sources:

  • Ceiling lamp: A bright ceiling lamp is important to illuminate the room well.

  • Night light: A night light is very practical so that you don't have to turn on the big light at night. Make sure it's not too light and a pleasant color.

  • Nursing light: If you are breastfeeding, a nursing light is very useful. It ensures that you can see your baby clearly without dazzling them.

The right decoration


The decoration is the icing on the cake in the baby room. However, you should make sure that it does not take up too much space and is not a source of danger. Here are a few tips:

  • Wall design: A pretty wall design with wall tattoos or pictures can beautify the room.

  • Mobile: A mobile above the crib can be very soothing and stimulate your baby's senses.

  • Carpet: A soft carpet can make the room more comfortable and it is comfortable for your baby to play on the floor.

The right room layout

The room layout is an important factor when setting up the baby room. Make sure you have enough space to move around with your baby and that the furniture is arranged sensibly.

  • Cot: The cot should be placed so that you can easily reach it. It should not be near windows or heaters.
  • Changing table: The changing table should be close to the cot so that you can access the changing utensils quickly and easily. There should also be enough space around the changing table to move you and the baby safely and comfortably.
  • Closet/dresser: The closet or dresser should be placed so that you can easily access your baby's clothes and accessories. It's a good idea to sort clothes by size and type to make it easier to find specific items of clothing.

  • Play area: It is advisable to set up an area in the room for baby to play and discover. Toys, stuffed animals and books can be stored here. Make sure there is enough space for playing and crawling, and that toys are safe and age-appropriate.
  • Nursing area: If you are breastfeeding, it is advisable to set up a comfortable nursing area in the room. Here you can find a comfortable breastfeeding position and relax while you feed your baby. Comfortable seating, a small table for snacks and drinks, and adequate lighting are important factors here.

Summary

Furnishing a baby room requires careful planning and thought. It's important that you design the space to be functional, safe, and leave enough space for baby to move and play. Choosing the right furniture and accessories can help you and your baby feel comfortable and relaxed in the room.
