In the Nursery
Baby's nursery should be the most tranquil place in your home, but how do you get from 'spare room' to 'baby's room'?
Its hard choice knowing what to pick out for your new little bundle. From cots to hanging mobiles, curtains to wallpaper, Where should you start?

When you first bring baby home, you will more than likely have baby in your room for the first few months, I kept both of my children in my room until they were 6 months old. It makes the night feeds easier, and means you can check them easier in the middle of the night.

One more things you may need for a nursery and it doesn't quite fit with the above categories, baby monitors. Do go for digital! I had basic monitors at first, and then I got digital, wow what a difference!
No hissing, no crackling, just pure peace and quiet until baby needs you!
Now the grand parents have them too :-)
