9 Nursery Essentials For A New Baby

Having a new baby means needing lots of new things for  your family, which can get pretty expensive. Between bottles, cribs and diapers, it can be overwhelming. When we had our little guy and brought him home, it was only then that I realized we had too much stuff and not enough of what we needed. And, you don’t want to just get everything because again, that is expensive and takes up precious space. So here are 9 nursery essentials for your new baby’s room!

  • Crib 2 of 10

    Of course you nee a crib. That's not news at all. But my suggestion is to get a crib you love. Now just one you inherit or find on craigslist. You will be spending a lot of time with that crib. You don't want to hate it!

  • Rocker 3 of 10

    A rocking or gliding chair is a must have! I love the look of this modern rocker. So chic, don't you think?

  • Mobile 4 of 10
    nursery 03

    It may not seem like a necessity, but in my eyes a mobile above the crib is important. Something to keep baby happy and occupied! It can be a total life-saver.

  • Quilt 5 of 10
    nursery 04

    A soft and pretty baby quilt is something so special to have in the nursery. For cuddling up with, sure. But being the sentimental I am, I love the idea of holding onto it and letting the grandchild use it!

  • Changing Station 6 of 10
    nursery 05

    It is so important to me to have a dedicated changing station. An all in one area where I have everything I need to change and clean up the baby. I love this changing pad.

  • Diaper Pail 7 of 10
    nursery 06

    This diaper pail is not only stylish in design and color, but it uses regular trash bags! No more separate bags to buy!

  • Stuffed Animal 8 of 10
    nursery 07

    I'm not a huge advocate of stuffed animals, but I have a soft spot (pun intended) for having a special stuffed animal for the baby. Something they receive when they are born and grow up loving is ideal. Don't you think? 

    Get them here starting at $44 from Blabla

  • Night Light 9 of 10
    nursery 08

    Not so much for the baby as much for the parents. Having a little night light helps sleepy parents who are wandering into a crying baby's room in the middle of the night. No more stubbed toes!

  • Storage 10 of 10
    nursery 09

    Having plenty of easily accessed storage is a must! These cute polka dot bins are a perfect nursery storage solution.
