Before the birth of their first child, young parents ask themselves a thousand questions to know what to buy to arrange the bedroom of their treasure, and many are those who buy too many useless things ... To see more clearly, we do update on the 8 REALLY important accessories to welcome baby!

A place to make baby sleep

After having slept nine months warm in his mother's womb, loulou will now need a small bed to sleep in and take a nap ... So, cradle or cot? Ideal for the first three months, the cradle is a particularly cute accessory, but it serves so little time that it is often better to invest immediately in a cot. Simple or upgradeable, the ideal is to choose it in solid wood and covered with water-based paint to prevent it from emitting too much pollutants ... But the cot is not an obligation either! Followers of the Montessori method prefer a simple mattress placed on the floor, other mothers opt for a co-dodo bed in their bedroom and the first few weeks a simple basket does the trick!

On this evolving model, the barriers are removed to make a large bed!

Bed linen and sleeping bags

On the other hand, whether he sleeps in a crib, a cradle or a crib, baby absolutely needs a new quality mattress and bed linen at his size. Provide a mattress protector and at least three organic cotton covers (or Oeko-tex standards) because washing is very frequent at the start. Pillows, cushions, sheets and blankets do not have their place in the bed of loulou for security reasons. They are replaced exclusively by sleeping bags at their size (0-1 year the first year), more or less padded depending on the season. If you have opted for a bed, there are also very pretty bumper pads that create a real cotton cocoon and prevent baby from getting their feet caught between the bars. On the other hand, the cocoon nest and the baby wedge are not essential if the child is not premature and the mattress incline is only used in the event of regurgitation and can be replaced by a rolled towel…

A mattress cover, a sleeping bag and that's it! (Security requires)

A place to change your little one

When you return from maternity, the first thing you will do is to change your baby's diaper, which you will do several more times a day (and per night) for more than two years ... So better organize! If you don't have room in the bathroom, a changing table is ideal for changing babies safely without breaking your back. Depending on the space available, you can also opt for a wall-mounted changing table that folds down when not in use, or for a dresser with a removable changing table that you will only have to store in two or three years ... In any case, the right changing table is one that allows you not to lean too much, which is ultra-stable because baby will do acrobatics faster than you think, and which allows to have within reach of hand the diapers, the cottons and all the necessary for the toilet of loulou. But finally, the only really essential accessory is the changing mat, which you can even put on a bed if you lack space, with a simple towel on it. Choose it of good quality and meeting European standards.

Smart storage for clothes

The first year, baby completely renews his wardrobe at least five times, and often stains several times a day ... In other words, his wardrobe will quickly seem more important than yours! Plan plenty of accessible and practical storage, to be sure to quickly find clean pajamas at two in the morning and a warm waistcoat as soon as the temperature drops…

A real big wardrobe!

A basket or a toy chest

If you can't imagine playing dinette and little train yet, your little angel should soon be at the head of a large collection of stuffed animals and early learning games. Thank you the birth gifts! To store them quickly and easily, consider installing a toy chest or wicker baskets in the bedroom, you will not regret it!

Rolling storage, a good idea for storing toys

A mobile for awakening

From birth, your baby will be fascinated by the movements of a mobile fixed just above his head. And you will be amazed to see him smile and chirp when you find him every morning! In the trade, you will easily find mobiles of all the colors and all the shapes, some of which are even phosphorescent in the dark… If you opt for a musical mobile, take the time to choose the music well, because you risk the hear VERY often! Otherwise, why not make a DIY mobile yourself? Above the changing table, the mobile is the perfect accessory to divert attention from loulou during the treatments. On the other hand, it is better to avoid hanging it on the cot to promote a peaceful sleep ...

A night light for soft lighting

If infants are not afraid of the dark, they need a soft and soothing atmosphere before sinking into the arms of Morpheus. Provide dim lighting with a night light, a child's lamp or a light garland: you will need it to create a soft atmosphere at bedtime, but also to take care of baby during the night (change, feeding, bottle ...) .

A beautiful night light for sweet dreams…

Cuddly toys in baby's room

If your newborn is not yet a decoration enthusiast, he will quickly appreciate finding his teddy bears and his favorite comforters in his little universe. Above all, avoid overloading the room with unnecessary objects, but if you fall for a very sweet elephant, a funny giraffe or a cute panda, there is a good chance that your little one will also be under their spell!

Soft toys ...

Less essential but also useful in the nursery…

Finally, if the baby's room is large enough, do not hesitate to add a large comfortable chair to cuddle, rock and feed it in the first year. From around three months, loulou will also be delighted to be placed on the ground on a large, firm rug to explore the world on his stomach ... He will also like to play with an activity mat or spend a few minutes in his rocking lounger … In winter, it is also recommended to check the temperature with a thermometer and increase the humidity level if the air is too dry (and only if it is!). Your list of essentials may therefore gradually grow, you are warned!

We love this chair in the baby's room!
