Fulfilling the Dream: Baby Nursery Ideas

Leave a comment

Expecting a baby is always a joyous occasion. It is very exciting, especially for first-time parents, to prepare the nursery for the future bundle of joy. The search for baby nursery ideas usually starts at the confirmation of the news. But like any other parent, you’d want your baby’s room to be visually appealing. Here are some baby nursery decorating tips for you.

• Play it by color.
Colors make any nursery bright and cheerful. For baby boy nursery ideas, the color of choice is usually light blues to tan. Browns are also a favorite as it provides a roomy appeal. For baby girl nurseries, pink and yellow top the list. You can also choose to use gender-neutral colors like green and light orange.

• Have a theme.
The easiest way to design a nursery for your tiny tot is to work around a theme. Notice that most baby nursery ideas articles would tell you to work on a theme-based design. For example, cartoon characters are a common theme for boys while fairytale characters and princesses are a hit for baby girls.

• Make the room conducive to learning.
Aside from aesthetics, you should also incorporate particular designs that would encourage mental and physical development. Having building blocks for toddlers is one of the common boy nursery ideas. You can also use floor mats with alphabet designs to entice the curiosity of the baby when the time is right.

• Baby-proof the room.
Way before your baby can crawl or walk, you should “baby-proof” the room by ensuring that there are no sharp edges. Purchase corner protectors for the furniture you’d install. Also make sure that your electric outlets are covered and child-proof. Choose cabinets and drawers that can be locked.

Designing your baby’s room is a relaxing experience. Ensure that you have all areas covered by prioritizing the child’s safety. Other than this, enjoy the experience!

Cheap Cribs are Easy to Find

Leave a comment

If you notice, almost all baby furniture are expensive especially baby cribs but if you are a good bargain hunter, I’m sure finding cheap cribs and baby furniture would be an easy task. Cheap baby cribs are mostly second hand cribs, but finding brand new cribs that are cheap is not impossible. Buying from factory outlets and discount stores can provide you with the best cribs possible. You just need to be updated with the latest promotions that manufacturers and department stores offer.

Online shopping for cribs with affordable rates can be done by using online coupons offered from different coupon websites or from the manufacturer’s website itself. Usually they have separate section for coupons and items that are on sale. Not only you would be able to find baby cribs that are on sale but you can also check on other baby stuff that is necessary for your baby. Also, manufacturer’s promote their products to different websites and as a way for people to know their product manufacturer’s hold a giveaway sponsorship to some websites particularly blogs written by moms.

Cheap cribs are mostly found in thrift shops and yard sale. If you are a frugal mommy, I’m sure you know where to find yard sale and thrift shops in your area. If you are lucky enough, you would be able to find sturdy, durable, and elegant baby cribs for very low price. Most cribs you will find in yard sales are still very usable, in fact those crib were just used for short time. When you purchase from used items, especially for baby furniture, it would be best to check all the parts before deciding to buy. Sometimes there are loose screws and missing parts that could post potential danger when used by your baby.

If there are some important parts missing, make sure that you or your husband replaces that part. Tighten every screw and wheels attached so that danger can be avoided because furniture like cribs when used frequently or unused for quite a long time can lose its sturdiness and durability.

A baby crib is where your baby sleeps and spends most of his time during early ages most probably up to two or three years. The convertible cribs are baby cribs that can be converted to a toddler bed or standard sized bed for young kids.

Another kind is the portable crib. It is smaller, shorter and narrower than a regular crib. It is good if you have a small place to set up the crib. If you own a small house or apartment, it will give you more space for other baby’s stuff. It is usually much cheaper than a regular baby crib, so when you are in a budget and need more space in your house, this one is good for you.

How about a travel crib? Are you going somewhere with the baby? You must be overwhelmed when you have to carry so many babies’ stuff with you. Wherever it is you’re going with your baby, you really need a crib, but this time a travel crib is the one you need. This is more lightweight than a regular crib.

Playtime – 3 Month Old – Week 3

Leave a comment

Did we tell you that babies in their third month of life are completely capable of making those amazing sounds of ooohs, and aahs, and coos which make their initial forms of conversation? Babies this age are also learning to smile, show their surprise and squeal with delight too. The games this week are proposed to make your baby giggle (in whichever baby-way they can) and get surprised to their fullest.

Pop up!
This is a simple, classic and really easy game to play with your little one, and the one that you can keep playing the whole day as long as she enjoys it. It involves the simple task of you reappearing from nowhere and surprising your baby to get some giggle and squeaks out of her. Of course, there won’t be any ‘nowhere’ out of which you’d be reappearing so while she is on changing table, or simply lying on her play mat, hide behind a door, and pop out with an exaggerated squeal or a similarly animated sound. Your baby will love how you came into sight out of nowhere and surprised her. This is your baby learning cause and effect.

WHAT!
This is a variation of the above explained game and doesn’t require you hiding away and popping out. It is a simple matter of surprising your baby by suddenly saying WHAT where you first make a round face on her, and end the WHAT with a laugh. Just catch your baby when she has her attention focused on something else and surprise her with a sudden WHAT. Don’t make it too loud or noisy or else you’re just going to scare her.
