Therefore, the waiting time is fulfilled with good planning and preparation for the birth of the little offspring. The earlier and better you prepare for it, the less stress you experience when the baby is already there. It is therefore particularly important to plan the baby room in good time and make it comfortable. Actually, it’s not that easy, because there are a few things that parents absolutely have to pay attention to. The following tips aim to save the parents’ strength and energy and to give them useful information for the design of a baby room. Stay tuned to inquire for details!
The baby room – a cozy home for your cuddly mouse
The baby room must not be overcrowded with furniture
First, think about what you absolutely want in the baby room. A baby bed is sure to be the first on your must-have list, because it always plays a central role in the design of a baby’s room. You also need a changing table with a changing mat.
Many parents choose this because these pieces of furniture are practical and specially designed for the baby room. This way you keep everything you need within easy reach and don’t waste energy rummaging around in the closet for the romper or soft towel. In addition to these three pieces of furniture, you must also think about the mother and save her strength. You can place a rocking chair or a comfortable armchair in a free corner of the room, where mom can rest while breastfeeding or giving bottles. In no case is it desirable to clutter the baby room with other, completely unusable furniture. On the one hand, they spoil the look of the room, on the other hand, they leave too little free running space.
Every mom deserves this comfort.
Extra tip: When setting up the baby room, it is better to act according to the well-known minimalist rule: less is more!
Keep everything you need within easy reach!
Mother and baby safety is a top priority when furnishing the baby room
When furnishing and designing your baby room, the first thing to think about is the safety of both mother and baby. Experts recommend not choosing furniture with hard edges. Small details that can easily become unstable must also be avoided. Some pieces of furniture and textiles emit toxins, which is why you have to inquire about what materials and how exactly these pieces are made when buying. In addition to the pieces of furniture mentioned above, you also need a mattress for the cot and the changing table, which should be made of latex or foam and not too soft.
The mattress on the changing table must be ergonomic and breathable, but not too soft.
The clothes for babies and toddlers must be made from organic materials and natural fibers.
The entire duvet cover and baby clothes must be made of high-quality textiles that allow the little one’s skin to breathe easily and support heat regulation. Therefore, we can only advise you only choose baby clothes that are made from natural fibers such as cotton, wool and silk. Bio-materials are also possible here. But please no synthetic fibers, because these are not air-permeable enough and the heat can easily accumulate. This is not recommended for babies at all.

Organize the baby room so that you have plenty of storage space
Organize numerous storage options, because you will need them urgently. Changing table with large drawers, a shelf for baby care products and a few baskets underneath are part of the initial equipment in the baby room and are an absolute must in the first few months. Then you still have to plan built-in storage options in advance and use every corner of the baby’s room if possible. You also need a good overview of all baby items at all times so that you can find what you need quickly and easily. And it absolutely has to be within reach. Also provide storage space for your favorite toys.
Our extra tip: Babies grow up quickly. In a few months you will see that your little cuddly mouse has become a toddler. That’s why you only buy as much baby clothing that you really need.

Create a cozy oasis for your baby
It is very clear that the whole furnishing of the baby room is primarily subordinate to practical purposes. However, there has to be a cozy atmosphere there. Therefore you try to create an oasis of well-being for your newborn. Start with the walls of the room and paint them in a neutral, calming pastel shade of your choice.

The curtains must be colored to match whether they are light, translucent or opaque. Good lighting is also a must in the baby room. Under no circumstances should this blind the baby. Opt for soft ceiling lighting or choose spot lighting. This only focuses on certain objects in the room.
