If you know that you have a baby on the way then you will understand how exciting this can be. You may also be under a lot of stress because you have so much to get ready and so little time to get it all done in as well. If you want to avoid all of this then one thing that you do need to concentrate on is getting the nursery ready so that you don’t have to do any hard manual labor for when your newborn arrives.
Preparing the Room
It is so important that you clear out the room first. When you do this you can then have a clean slate and it also gives you the chance to plan out everything as well. You can also give the room a big clean as well as this will help you to get everything sorted for when your bundle of joy comes along. When you do prepare the room it is also important that you wipe down and clean all of the surfaces. This does include the walls and even the floor as well. The main reason for doing that is because babies really are susceptible to allergens such as pet hair, dust and even mold as well. If you are not sure how to clean down the room then consider using a sponge and some hot water. Try and avoid using harsh chemicals when you do this because this can also irritate your baby.
Install a Dimmer
Another thing that you can do is try and install a dimmer switch. They are very easy for you to do and when you want to put your baby to bed, it will make it much easier. You can also go into the room without having to turn on the lights and this will make it much easier for you to stop waking your baby up. If you want to make the room even more relaxing then you can easily add a lamp with a very soft bulb as this will add a nice glow when you read them bedtime stories.
Oiling the Hinges
If you can you should also try and oil the hinges. When you do this it will stop them from creaking and this can save you a lot of sleepless nights later. After all, the last thing that you need is for you to open the door and instantly wake up your baby. You will be glad that you did this and you can easily do it yourself. Some WD40 will do the trick and it can sort out the problem in an instant.
And lastly, you need to go through all of the furniture that you need. It may be worth you looking into a nursery furniture collection. When you do this, you can easily find something that suits the room and you can also make sure that everything fits in nicely with the shape and even the style of the room as well so do keep that in mind.
