Long before a baby arrives, eager parents begin furnishing and decorating the nursery. There are a host of ideas you can select from when developing you newborn baby's room. It is important to create a decor for your room that will create a comfortable and safe environment for your baby and also one that is visually pleasing.
Set aside an area in your baby's room for bonding. This can be, for example, a rocking chair placed in a corner of the room with a cosy baby blanket thrown over the back where mom or dad can spend quality time with the little one. Make room for a CD player in the room so that you can play soothing music or nursery rhymes to your baby. Place a bin or book rack on the other side of your chair with a selection of children's stories to read to your baby at bedtime.
While you can buy furnishings to decorate your newborn's room, a more creative approach is to create designs to add to the furnishings you purchase. Use craft paints to create unique designs on the walls. Use stencils if you prefer not to hand-paint your own original designs. You can add flowers, aeroplanes or animals to a table, crib, or a dresser in your baby's room.
Whether it is framed art created by older siblings or artwork created by mom, dad or a grandparent, personalised artwork hung on your newborns room walls can add a great feel to your baby's room decor. An excellent craft project for other children in your family is to create a family picture including their new brother or sister. A different option is to help your older children create a design in a basic graphics program that can be printed and framed. Also think about using the program to create a family collage image.
