These days, parents want to give their babies a head start from birth. Starting with the baby bedding can be step one. The bedding and nursery decor you choose can help stimulate different areas of the baby’s brain. Studies show that parents can improve on the baby’s cognitive development and motor skills by introducing sensory rich items early. These items will help stimulate the baby’s brain activity.

Stimulating items can include the bedding you choose, wall art, sounds, and textures. The choice of bedding is an important decision, as it is the first and last thing the baby sees daily. Choosing a simple design with contrasting colors will help stimulate the area of the brain that controls vision. Stripes, dots, and geometric patterns are the most obvious choices. These Baby Bedding Collections can be found in a variety of colors and patterns for both genders, and even neutral colors.

Wall decor should run along the same theme as your baby’s bedding. Geometric designs, and bold color decor such as black and white. Black and white letters and/or shapes are a great way to incorporate this into any theme. Spell out your baby’s name with block lettering, rotating between black and white.

The sounds in the baby’s room should be stimulating as well. Classical music is a popular choice for many parents; from artists such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart are favorites. Many parents start playing this music while baby is still in the womb. Playing outside the womb once born has proven to calm the baby. Many baby crib mobiles offer classical music and nature sounds rather than typical lullabies. Although, you can find those too.

Lastly, the textures are a great way to help develop the baby’s brain. The Baby Bedding Collections you chose should have different textures to peak baby’s interest. Once baby starts reaching around his or her crib, they can feel the bumper and that it feels different from the sheet, or the blanket and the crib wood itself. This can also be incorporated into toys as well as toys that have lights, sounds, crinkly textures and minky fabrics which stimulate more than one area of the brain at a time.
