Registering for and designing your baby’s NURSERY should be a special experience! To make things easy I have included a checklist of what I consider to be nursery essentials and nursery extras. I’ve also linked some of my favorite items below!
All things considered, Rosie was a relatively low maintenance babe…no noise machine or special black out shades required, but she did love this sweet little sleep sheep that plays nursery rhymes and attaches to the outside of the crib
I also found these to be a lifesaver during those first few months. No longer was a sheet or cover change necessary after every messy diaper.
Don’t forget to install a baby monitor right above the crib so that you can see your *hopefully sleeping* angel at all times.
