With moving + house hunting lately I am getting super excited to redo/decorate our new home. (more then likely it won’t be new…but it will be new to us) With baby girl almost here I thought it might be time to start thinking about the nursery. haha. She’s only coming in 7 days and I’m now just thinking about it. Our babies stay in our room for the first couple of months so I’m not to stressed but it got me thinking about a few key pieces I need to start looking at and get ordered. I wish I had done a few things different with Houston’s nursery — like invested in a nice rocker or recliner. (won’t be making that mistake again) So it got me thinking I thought  I’d share the 5 key pieces I think every nursery needs!! You can see them below.

Rocker :  Having a “good” rocker in the nursery is definitely on the top of my must haves. It is a life saver for those long nights with my first thee babies and then I thought I’d get all “modern” and go for a simple hard chair and I have regretted it ever since.

. .  SHOP MORE ROCKERS  . .

 

Crib :  So we all know a crib is a no-brainer but I think a bunch of cribs are WAY over priced + plus my little ones have always ended up chewing the rails. haha. I am loving these modern cribs a lot!! To me, the crib is the “main” item of the nursery room. I base a lot of my designing the room off of the crib + bedding. I am loving these oval cribs (but sheets would be limited) – BUT it is such a fun statement item! I’ve been eyeing this one and it’s only $380!!

. .  SHOP MORE CRIBS  . .

 

Bedding :  I love to get my crib bedding from Oilo. They always have the best designs + I love that they even make bedding for the oval crib mattresses too! Nordstrom and Pottery Barn Kids also have a great selection!!

 

Dressers + Changing Tables :  Changing tables are always fun to have in the nursery. It makes changing diapers a little bit easy by having them at your height instead of always bending down to do it on the floor. The drawers are also super handy + perfect place for extra storage. But I also love a true dresser so you can use it after baby has grown out of the diaper phase.

. .  SHOP DRESSERS + CHANGING TABLES  . .

 

Accessories + Greenery :  Accessories are definitely a must have! They tie the entire room together and give the room that fun + unique look to it. I always like to have some greenery or fig tree in the room, whether the plants are real or fake. It gives the room some life to it + I always think they make the room a little more refreshing.

  1. You’ve selected some lovely nursery items Kailee – definitely must have pieces! I’m sure your little girl will be spoiled with so many beautiful things.
    Good luck for the days ahead – Marnie xx

  2. Hey Kailee – my kiddos will be a little less than 12 months apart when baby comes in 8 weeks. I’m debating on buying a second rocker for new baby’s room. What do you think?

    1. Erinn!!

      Congrats!! I think that is such a personal decision…but our house is so small right now we wouldn’t be able to fit two. haha. No, but I probably wouldn’t because my thoughts are you’d only be able to rock one baby at a time so I think we would be good with one. BUT don’t let me stop you. If your husband is home a ton then you could both rock. (my husband is always gone so it wouldn’t make sense for us)

      hope that helps!
