Designing a nursery can be a daunting task, especially if your first little one is on the way. With so many considerations when welcoming a new member into the family, it is easy to feel overwhelmed at this busy time. Modern Karibou is here to help! We have tips and ideas for making your nursery a restful place to be.
1. Create an oasis with a comfortable sleeping place.
Pick a safe and attractive crib for your wee one with a quality, natural mattress that allows for proper airflow. This furniture item will typically be the largest in your room so be sure to love it. Bedding adds a punch of colour and comfort without the commitment so it can easily transition from one baby to the next.
Babies don't stay small forever. When choosing dressers, armoires, and change tables it is best to buy pieces that will transition through their life stages. Look for drawers and cupboards for diapers and cleaning supplies. Opt for quality and be sure to err on the side of more storage than you think you may need. You can never have enough space to hide things away.
Babies don't initially differentiate between colours, nor can they see very far at first, but the ability to do both develops rapidly. Give them something to look at. If you don't want to commit to a bright wall colour there are still plenty of options. Wall hangings with bold geometric designs and graphic images are a perfect choice. Hang a mobile or wallpaper the ceiling so your little one has something to look up to from the crib. Modern homes tend to be white, so use accessories and textiles to bring in the bright.
4. Create a relaxing feeding area.
Unfortunately, new parents are guaranteed to be up a lot during the night for a while. Make sure you have a comfortable place to sit back and relax. Gliding chairs and ottomans will be your saviours in the middle of the night when it is feeding (or just plain crying) time. A little couch can also serve as a place to lay back and enjoy the new bundle.
Babies sleep. Sometimes this happens at night, but it also occurs during the day. Make sure you have blackout curtains or blinds to block out the sunlight when it is nap time. A night light will help you see in the darkness without startling your newborn. Bright overhead lights are useful during changings, but a table lamp will come in handy when preparing for bedtime.

The plummeting temperatures have me dreaming of hibernating in my warm, comfortable home for the long winter we are certain to face in Canada. Sure, I could bundle up and brave the cold, but getting cozy and taking a nap sounds so much more appealing.
Recently, on a cold wintry day, I recalled an article that I read earlier this year about nap time in Scandinavia. It was published by the BBC and totally amazed me. In it the authour, Helena Lee, talked about how Swedish parents leave their babies outside to nap in sub-zero temperatures and how effective it is for rest time. Parents cited better health and longer sleeps among the benefits of outdoor napping. With a climate so similar to ours, I wonder if this approach may work for our babies too. Would you give it a try with your child?
Brrr! The days are getting shorter and colder. Bundle up
your baby to protect them from wind, rain and snow with a ‘Le Sac Igloo’
