Nursery Essentials


Preparing for the arrival of a newborn can be an exciting but overwhelming experience. One of the most important things to consider is creating a comfortable and safe nursery for your baby. 

nursery essential items for your newborn baby

Here are some of our favourite nursery essentials you may want to include in your newborn’s room:
  1. Crib: A crib is an essential piece of furniture for your newborn’s nursery. Make sure to choose a crib that meets safety standards, and that has a firm mattress that fits snugly inside. You may also want to consider purchasing a waterproof mattress cover, as well as a few fitted sheets. – CRIB | Love For Sleep
  2. Dresser: A dresser is a great addition to your newborn’s nursery, providing ample storage space for clothes, diapers, and other essential items. You may also want to consider a changing table that can be attached to the dresser, making diaper changes more convenient. – DRESSER | Mamas & Papas
  3. Rocking chair or glider: A comfortable chair can be a lifesaver during those late-night feedings and soothing sessions. Consider purchasing a rocking chair or glider that is comfortable and easy to clean. – GLIDER CHAIR | Scandiborn
  4. Baby monitor: A baby monitor is a great way to keep an eye on your little one while they sleep. Look for a monitor that has clear sound quality, and that has a long battery life. – MONITOR | John Lewis
  5. Swaddle blankets: Swaddle blankets are a great way to keep your newborn feeling cosy and secure. Look for blankets that are made from soft, breathable materials, and that are easy to wash. – SWADDLE | Love To Dream
  6. Baby bouncer/rocker chair: These chairs are great for your newborn for both soothing and comforting them and for stimulating play. Great to keep your little one settled and entertained. – BOUNCER | Mamas & Papas
  7. Onesies and sleepers: Your newborn will go through a lot of onesies and sleepers in the first few months of life. Stock up on a variety of sizes and styles to ensure you always have clean clothes on hand. – SLEEPSUITS | Mamas & Papas
  8. Muslin cloths: Babies tend to spit up frequently, so having a supply of burp cloths on hand is essential. Look for cloths that are absorbent and easy to wash. – MUSLINS | Aden & Anais
  9. Baby bath tub: Giving your newborn a bath can be a bit intimidating at first, but having a baby bath tub can make the process a lot easier. Look for a tub that is comfortable and secure, and that is easy to clean. – BABY BATH | Mamas & Papas
  10. Activity play mat: An activity play mat is a great addition to your nursery that encourages learning based play and sensory development for your newborn. – ACTIVITY PLAY MAT | Scandiborn

Creating a nursery for your newborn can be a lot of work, but it is also an exciting and rewarding experience. By including these nursery essentials in your nursery, you can ensure that your baby has a comfortable and safe space to grow and thrive.
