Nursery Furniture: What do I need?

Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Cribs & Conversion Kits, Nursery | Comments Off on Nursery Furniture: What do I need?

There is nothing more exciting than the joy of bringing a new member of the family home. Even before their new baby comes home, most parents enjoy the pleasure of decorating and furnishing the nursery for their new baby. Just like adults and older children, there are specific types of furniture that every baby needs in their room. In fact, you are probably going to spend more time decorating and furnishing your child’s nursery than you will with any other preparation for your child.

Obviously, a crib is going to be the most important piece of furniture in your child’s nursery. This is because your new baby is going to sleep in a crib until it is time for them to move to a real bed. This means that the first two or three years of their life is going to be spent in this type of bed. Ideally, you want to select a sturdy crib that is going to last for years to come.

There are even 3-in-1 cribs in the market that grow with your child. This means that when your child is ready to move out of the crib and into a real bed, you can just adjust the crib and continue to use it. These beds are also known as Child Craft Lifetime Beds. 3-in-1 cribs are easily converted into full size beds with the help of a Crib Conversion Kit and this is all the more reason to get a sturdy and durable crib. Most of the time an individual is going to spend a few hundred dollars on a crib. It is completely worth the cost because you really do get years of usage out of a crib.

A bassinet or cradle is an option piece of furniture that some parents really enjoy. They are a smaller, comfortable, and convenient place for your baby to sleep during the first few months of their life. Most children feel more at ease in a bassinet or cradle because of how small and cozy they are. The other reason individuals like bassinets is because they are a portable bed that can easily be moved from room to room.

Other pieces of furniture you may way to consider include a changing table, a rocking chair, and a diaper pail. The rocking chair is a perfect way to feed your child and rock them back to sleep. A changing table is the most convenient way to change diapers. Furthermore, most changing tables make a great way to store a lot of your child’s products including wipes, diapers, ointments, and clothing. A diaper pail is just a good idea because it is a trash can that is designed to help eliminate the smell of a dirty diaper.

Your child will always be your little baby but time tells a different story. At first they start out impossibly small, safe and secure in their little crib.

Then the front rail of the crib is removed and a shorter one is put up (some models) converting to a toddler bed.

But as time ticks by and your baby is too big for his crib and has completely outgrown his toddler bed, now its time for a full size bed and Child Craft Lifetime cribs could not be easier to convert. (Please remember that all cribs are slightly different and you should always refer to the assembly directions that come with your crib/crib conversion kit).
