Article Body:
So you’re expecting a new little bundle of joy. Congratulations! You’ve cleared out the small bedroom near
yours and you’re ready to set up your baby’s room. Here are some suggestions that will keep baby safe and
comfortable and not cost a fortune...Safety is the number one factor in a baby’s room. Check out the safety
guidelines before buying or borrowing a crib (see Baby Crib Safety Checklist). Use your money to buy things
that will last at least a few years, such as a crib that converts to a toddler bed and a small dresser.
You choose to use a cradle in the early months and keep it by your bed, but eventually you will need a
may
crib...Other baby furniture includes a changing table and a high chair. And don’t forget a comfortable rocking
chair (with arms) for late-night feedings or to rock-a-bye baby a fussy infant to sleep...In setting
up themake sure everything you’ll need will be close at hand, so you never have to leave baby alone — even for
room,
just a moment! — on the changing table...One of the biggest expenses in fixing up a nursery is the labor,
so best way to save money is to do it yourself! Refinish and paint (lead-free!) furniture, sew curtains
the
(youuse cute baby print sheets), and get grandma to knit baby blankets. Paint the walls in light shades (with
can
washable paint) in a color that will "grow" with the child. If you love wallpaper but can’t imagine doing
a
whole room yourself, trying decorating with a wallpaper border on painted walls or stencil a design around
the
windows, ceiling and doors. The room can look "done" by a decorator if you coordinate wallpaper and fabrics
for a wall hanging, quilt, and window coverings...If friends will be throwing you a baby shower, register
for things to decorate the room, such as bedding, crib accessories (bumper pads, mobiles), and bright colored
some
toys or stuffed animals...Use baskets, drawers, and shelves to store toys, clothing, and other infant
essentials. Expand storage space by putting shelves or a small dresser in the closet.
