Getting the nursery ready is perhaps one of the most exciting parts of preparing for the arrival of your little one. You’ll want to make sure everything is just right, so when your bundle of joy decides to make an appearance you can concentrate on taking care of them.

We’ve put together a handy guide packed full of nursery ideas and baby essentials to help you prepare for your new arrival. Taking safety, style and function into account, read on to make sure you have your and your baby’s needs covered.


How can I help my newborn baby sleep?

Your baby’s nursery is primarily a place for sleep. So you’ll want to create a relaxing atmosphere and have everything you need on hand to help baby off to the land of nod.

A rocking Moses basket is both soothing for your baby and sleep-inducing. This sturdy basket stand can also be locked into a stationary position. Simply pop the Moses basket into the rocker and off you go.

To go with your rocking basket, you’ll need a mattress, fitted sheet and a simple bedding set to keep your baby cosy. We’d also recommend a padded liner for your basket, to keep it extra comfortable.


What nursery furniture should I buy?

A nursing chair and stool is essential for a new mum. This Tutti Bambini model reclines for comfort and makes feeding time simple and easy.

What else should be on my baby checklist?

A bouncer is a worthwhile investment as you can move it (and baby!) from room to room as you take care of chores. This cute bouncer comes with floating sheep to keep the little one entertained and an adjustable waist strap to keep them secure.


Dreampods are ideal for night time nappy changes or trips away when your baby needs the comfort of home. This Mamas & Papas Unisex Dreampod is cosy and has practical poppers for easy opening, plus they can’t wriggle under it like they can with bedsheets!


While your nursery is a practical space, you’ll want to consider adding warm little touches too. This beautiful imprint tin is the perfect gift and keepsake for new parents and can take pride of place on the nursery wall.
