- Changing table + Changing pad
- Rocking chair
- Side Table for Mommy’s essentials
- Baby Monitor
- Breast Pump
- Diaper Genie
With the major things and any drilling out of the way, you would be looking at the smaller essentials that complete the room:
- Laundry hamper
- Crib sheets + Bedding
- Washable rug
- Different size baskets for storing clothes, toys, creams
- Nursing Pillow + Cover
- Night light
To make sure the nursery is ready for you and your new born’s arrival from the hospital, wash and fold all your little ones clothes and sheets, set up the breast feeding station, keep a basket with phone charger, journal and healthy snacks by the rocking chair.
