A comfortable and tastefully decorated bedroom influences the further development of the newborn, according to psychologists. Because babies spend most of their time in their room, the inside decoration is extremely important.
The ideal option is to allocate a separate room to the newborn from the beginning. If you do not have enough room in your house or apartment, you may want to consider an alternative arrangement for the small space just inside the master bedroom. But you have to keep in mind that besides the cot, the little one will need a separate wardrobe for clothes, a changing table and possibly a dresser with drawers for toys and baby accessories.
The material that your baby’s furniture is made of is extremely important, especially when it comes to the health of the little one. Surely you know that the best choice in this case is the furniture made of natural wood: oak, birch or beech, for example. But the price of wooden furniture is higher than the furniture in the Medium-Density Fiberboard or particleboard (MDF).
If budget allows, experts recommend buying wood furniture for the decoration of the room of the baby, which is also very healthy compared with that made of chipboard, in whose composition you can find formaldehyde (a substance harmful to health). And if you decide to buy furniture made of particleboard, experts recommend a proper documentation that you must request the producer or distributor, stating the concentration of formaldehyde in the composition of your furniture, which should not exceed 50 percent of the limit levels allowed by EU rules.
Baby cradle / beds patterns - pros and cons
An alternative to the two options presented above is the travel crib, made of canvas, which can be found in all baby shops in different color variants. Among its advantages include fast installation, the possibility of transporting it during the holidays and low risk of injury. On the other hand, canvas cribs can easily get dirty and cleaning them is more difficult, requiring time and drying.
Regarding other models of beds for newborns, manufacturers compete in presenting an extremely varied range of patters: the basket type, the rocking chair, with or without canopy on wheels, convertible bed etc. Usually, cart or rocking cribs are useful until the age of 3-4 months, your baby begins to grow and there is the danger of injury.
It is true that these models are extremely cute and many parents refrain from buying them, but do not forget that such an acquisition is only temporary. So we suggest you to focus from the very beginning on convertible cribs, which will be useful at least until the 3rd of 4th birthday of you baby.
There are convertible beds in whose initial composition there is included a dresser and a changing table, which, as the little one keeps growing up, it can be transformed into individual pieces of furniture, and by adding an appropriate-sized mattress, the bed can be used up to adulthood.
In conclusion, regardless of you choose for your baby and the color or model of the crib, you must make sure that it meets all necessary safety measures for the smallest member of the family.
