They grow up so fast, don’t they? By the time you reach the 6 month mark, you’re probably already looking to add a couple of new features to your little one’s nursery. Storage and a bigger bed have become a priority, as well as a couple of other bits and bobs to keep your baby happy.
Read our handy guide packed full of nursery ideas and baby essentials for your 6-12 month old.
What cot bedding should I buy?
Now your little bundle of joy has become a somewhat larger bundle of joy, it’s time to move from the Moses basket to a proper cot bed. This bed by OBaby is a fantastic investment, because it converts into a junior bed for further down the line. It also has a protective teething rail for enthusiastic chewers and comes in a range of gorgeous colours.
Kit out your new bed with a fitted sheet, a cot bed mattress and some new blankets. If you prefer to put your little one to bed in a sleeping bag, check out this 2.5 tog sleeping bag from Kit for Kids.
What nursery furniture do I need?
A good changing unit is a new parent’s best friend. This changing unit is also designed by OBaby and goes perfectly with the cot mentioned above. It has three spacious drawers and a full-length cupboard for storage, plus the recessed handles make it snag-free.
Should I consider nursery furniture sets?
As your baby grows, so too does their collection of clothes, shoes and accessories! If you want to kill three birds with one stone, you could invest in the East Coast Fontana 3 Piece Room Set, which includes a cot bed, wardrobe and dresser. Not only will it solve all your storage issues – the matching set looks pretty fabulous too.
What nursery ideas make good baby gifts?
If you’re looking for the perfect nursery gift idea, look no further. Treat mummy and daddy to a beautiful little keepsake – a framed copy of their first or second scan. It’s incredible to look back and see how tiny their baby once was. Alternatively, ensure a peaceful night’s sleep with this lovely musical mobile by Mamas & Papas.
