It is important that the baby has a small corner of their own, in which all the objects
that are familiar to them are collected together. But of course the
ideal scenario is that they should have their own room. Baby room also helps the parents to be more organised and it
simplifies their tasks for taking care of their child.
What are the basic
rules for a baby room?
The baby room should
be regularly ventilated to reduce the proliferation of house dust
mites. For exactly the same reason, make sure to limit the use of
draperies, carpet, fabrics and other dust absorbent materials in the
room to reduce the risks of different allergies.
This might seem
obvious to you, but it is always good to remember: no one should
smoke in the baby's room, not even when the baby isn't present in the
room, as the residue of the smoke and its odor causes breathing
problems for your infant.
As for the
temperature, baby room should not be warmer than 18 or 19 °C. On the
other hand, do not use the air conditioning, as it dries out the air.
If you must do so when the baby is in another room and have turn the
air conditioning off before bringing the baby back to their baby
room. Also check for moisture sources and ventilate the room daily
for one hour, in all season. Finally, avoid using the lights that are
What is the right
choice of bed for a baby room?
The main element of
the nursery is of course is the bed, in which your baby spends a lot
of time in the first few months. Decide between the two options
available to you, namely a standard cradle or a scalable bed. The
standard cradle will be a good idea if you plan to have other
children to reuse it. The adjustable bed in the other hand will last
longer because when kids turn teen you can still adjust the bed to their needs.
decision, choose a crib for the baby room which allows the baby to
see what surrounds them. The space between the bars should be between
4.5 and 6.5 cm. The quality of the mattress is equally essential. It
must be firm so it doesn't affect the physics of their body in long
run and it should perfectly fits to the dimensions of the bed. Make
sure the space between the mattress and the walls of the bed does not
exceed 1cm. This one is very important and must meet very strict
safety standards. If the gap is bigger, there is danger of baby’s
limbs to get stuck there and hurt them.
Moreover, the bed must
not be cluttered with unnecessary elements. Therefore better to
eliminate quilts, pillows and blankets and use baby sleeping bags to
eliminate any risk of suffocation.
What should i
consider when decorating of my baby’s room?
Of course, you can
call on an expert anytime. The important thing is that the decoration corresponds to
your inspiration and your needs. Have in mind that there are few
piece of furniture you would want to incorporate in baby room.
Changing table and enough closets for the baby equipment is very
essential and your decoration should not replace these elements and
rather complement them. According to our experts, use neutral colors
like beige, gray, cream and bring the color with the accessories.
They are what that set the mood for the baby room.
At birth, the baby's
vision is not yet fully developed: they can see at a distance of 18
cm to 20 cm, just enough to make eye contact with their parents when
they hold them. To put a small armchair or a rocking chair in your
baby room can provide you a lot of comfort. That’s also why, it is
really not useful to play on bright colors (which tend to irritate
and prevent the baby from sleeping) or strong contrasts. In first few
months of your child's life. At about 3 months old, the child
perceives several basic colors, the first ones are red and green. At
about 4 months old, they can distinguish as many colors as an adult.
Clarity of vision improves over the months to reach its maximum after
the age of 10!
To store the toys,
choose colored plastic boxes with rollers that has been proven very
practical. If you make the choice of a more traditional toy box, take
one that does not risk getting their fingers caught. Also one with
some holes in it so they won't get caught inside and suffocate.
For lighting, choose
lamps with dimmers that will allow you to adjust the brightness
according to the time of day. Particularly because babies are in the
beginning much more sensitive to light than an adult: they perceives
a 5% of the light while an adult receives only 1 to 2%. This
explains why a newborn child opens his eyes more easily when he is in
a darker room. We don't recommend a night light as it is good for the
child to understand the rhythms of day and night as quickly as
What is the effect
of music on baby’s development and what types of music are
It is important to
have babies listen to music before age of 3 years old. We have to say
that musical awakening is rarely the priority of parents. And that's
such a huge pity, because babies, who hear very well and much before
they could see are very fond of music and songs. There are many
studies that prove how much music is important to brain development
of the kids and their future success at school and their adult life.
That’s why it is
very important for your baby to listen to the music on quality
equipments rather than on a small and bad quality appliance. So think
twice when you are decorating your baby room and invest in a good
product that your child can use even when they grow up. On this
subject, avoid playing the music too loud for your baby, because it
can damage their hearing system.
