To Use a Nightlight or Not to Use a Nightlight: That is the Question

Once your baby is transitioned into her own room you might start asking yourself if you should (or should not) be using a nightlight for your child during bedtime. You may worry that a light will keep her up and disturb her sleep – or perhaps your worry is just the opposite in that your little one will be scared to sleep in the dark. A good simple rule to follow is, if you’d like to use a nightlight then do so. Or if you feel that your baby seems more comfortable with a nightlight on then by all means have one. However, it’s important not to make assumptions right away that your child is scared of the dark. Small children – especially infants – are pretty much accustomed to dark environments due to the time they spent in the womb. I would recommend putting your baby to bed without a nightlight at first and see how it goes, if your baby seems uncomfortable in the darkness, then you could try adding a nightlight.

If child is a little older and does need the night light due to some developing fears of the dark or you may want some light in the room so you can see when you go in to check on them – it’s OK to do so. Research shows that nightmares can begin as early as two years old so when nightly fears develop, adding a night light could provide just the level of comfort your little one needs. It’s important to always be sure you understand why your child feels scared – addressing the core issue first is vital. If your child needs the night light for comfort then let them have it. If it means helping them feel safe and secure in their environment and promotes better sleep for all then it’s not a battle you need to bother having. Just remember if you do end up using a nightlight, be careful what watt bulb you buy. Aim for 4-7 watts, but no brighter to promote restful sleep.

How to Choose the Perfect Color Palette for Your Baby’s Nursery

Did you know that babies are able to perceive color from the time they are about 3 months old? It’s true! You may already know that certain sounds elicit particular emotional responses from your baby – in that same way different colors will produce different reactions. This may lead you to start asking questions about what color is best for your nursery and what colors will lead to enough stimulation for your child.

Don’t fret as these questions are very common among parents. There is tons of scientific evidence out there for your review as to all the ways color affects adults. Despite any scientific debate regarding infants it stands to reason that color at least has the potential to affect your baby as well. Why not take advantage of all the research out there and use it in your nursery? Use our quick review guide below for help in choosing the perfect color palette for your little one’s special room!

COOL – Think blue and green sections of the color wheel. If you need to make a cramped space feel more spacious and airy use lighter color shades which will be calming and soothing. Darker shades can be cold and depressing so think light! Blue promotes sleep which is good for any newborn (and parents!) – studies show it slows down the human nervous system and produces a calming effect which helps prepare the body for sleep. Green is also another calming tone that can bring feelings of tranquility and well-being. Be sure to accent your cool shades with hints of the warmer ones listed below!

WARM – Think red, yellow, and orange sections of the color wheel. These tones make larger rooms feel smaller and cozy which fosters feelings of comfort and relaxation for your baby. However, be sure to pick more earthy balanced tones as intense shades could overstimulate your little one. Bright vivid red is best as an accent color only and not to be used on walls. Use it only to add a burst of energy to a more neutral palette.

How to Organize Baby’s Room by Maximizing Storage

Posted by on Oct 17, 2014 in General, Kids Room Decor, Nursery | Comments Off on How to Organize Baby’s Room by Maximizing Storage

As many of you know, living in a small space is challenging – add a baby into the mix, and even those who thought they had their space organized can be thrown for a loop. As the due date draws closer, the nursery will fill up quickly with tiny clothes, toys and books. Not to mention big stuff like swings, strollers and other newborn gear! Figuring out where to put everything can be a challenge but here are a few fun suggestions to keep all of baby’s things organized, read on.

First things first!
Pack away all toys, clothes and other gear that baby is not ready for yet. Only leave out the age appropriate things that are necessary in daily life on your easy to reach shelves. Babies grow up so fast that its normal to accumulate things – especially clothes – that your kiddo is not quite big enough for yet. However, that doesn’t mean those items need to be accessible right now. Make the most of your closet space by utilizing high shelves; also consider using under-bed boxes for quick, easy access. Be sure to clearly label the stuff you stow away (and sort it by age if possible) to make it easy to find the next size up when you need it.

Storage is key!
Parents understand the need for lots of shelving – especially if you live in a small space. Floor-to-ceiling shelving would be ideal for most parents as it allows for tons of things to fit in one space and is super-convenient for putting things away. Unfortunately storing everything on open shelving can look messy but you can easily hide your storage area by hanging full-length curtains from the ceiling in front of the shelving.  That way you can just slide them closed and all of the mess will disappear! Another idea to use cute storage boxes to stow all of that gear in – choose something that is easy to pull in and out and make sure to add a fun tag to label what is inside.

Do you have other ways to maximize storage in baby’s room? We would love to hear your suggestions!

Nursery Decor: Finding the Perfect Match

Posted by on Jul 30, 2014 in Baby Bedding Collections, General, Kids Room Decor, Nursery | Comments Off on Nursery Decor: Finding the Perfect Match

“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in our hearts.” –Winnie the Pooh

With your little one on the way, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the task of creating room for your little one in your home and in your heart. You want to have the perfect nursery. After all, you’ll be spending quite a bit of time in there.

It’s important to, first, decide on a theme. Everything else will flow from there. The best place to start is with the bedding. Then you can decide which color and material you’d like to use for the crib and furniture.

Popular Themes for Girls:

Popular Themes for Boys:

From there, you should choose a crib. It has become extremely popular to choose a crib that can be easily converted into a toddler bed, and then to a regular-sized bed. This is a cost efficient way to update your child’s room as he or she grows. Once you have decided on the wood color or material you’d like to use, your next items to purchase should be the dresser, rocking chair, and changing table.

A few decorations should complete the look of your nursery. Consider waiting until after the baby shower to purchase decorations. Often, wall decor is a popular gift item for parents-to-be. Be sure to register for the things you’d like to have, and send invites in a similar theme to your nursery. This can help guide your friends and family to the right purchases.

No matter what you choose for your little one, it’s sure to be the perfect match. Making room in your home is the hard part. Making room in your heart will come naturally.
