The security of your baby is the number one priority when it comes to their nursery. Before you purchase or borrow a crib, please take a look at our safety checklist to ensure that the crib meets all current safety guidelines (see Baby Crib Safety Checklist).
It’s important to have a crib by your bed, so you can easily tend to your baby in the early months. You may also want to use a cradle, but eventually you’ll need a crib. Other pieces of infant furniture include a high chair and changing table.
Do not forget to add a comfortable rocking chair to the nursery! It will come in handy for those late night feedings or for rocking a fussy infant to sleep. When you are setting up the room, make sure to place everything you will need within arm’s reach. This way, you will not have to leave baby unattended.
