All the items you need for your home and baby’s nursery
Preparing your nursery with the necessary items will help support better sleep for you and your baby. After working with countless families over the past 14 years, I have put together a checklist for new and expecting parents for your home and nursery. This is the list of recommended items I give to my sleep coaching clients. Some of these items are essentials and others are more convenience items (like a “mini, mini” fridge for the nursery so that you don’t have to walk to the kitchen in the middle of the night.) Click on the items in pink to see my favorites!
A crib (free from blankets, bumpers, toys and mobiles)
A firm mattress with tight fitting sheet
A rocking chair/glider and a side table
Blackout shades and curtains
White noise machine (that does not have an automatic switch-off or intermittent sounds)
A small fan (ceiling fans are generally too noisy)
Swaddles and Swaddle blankets– the Love to Dream swaddle is my favorite!
Onesies (Zip-ups are much easier) These two-way zipper onesies are great!
Pacifiers- I love the BIBS and MAM pacifiers!
Hands-free trash can for dirty/wet diapers
Dirty clothes laundry hamper
The Changing Table
Changing pad covers and liners
Changing pad caddy
Booster pads for diapers
Diaper rash cream
Baby Lotion- oatmeal and calming lavender
Baby brush and comb set
Thermometer- forehead/ear and rectal
