Plan the space carefully, open space for play is important in a young child’s room. A safe, protected area with play objects within easy reach of your child will encourage exploration.
Choose items with a range of textures, patterns and colours to stimulate their senses. Creating a peaceful environment is key for babies, try to avoid bright vivid colours on the walls and opt for soothing neutrals and ambient lighting.
When selecting furniture for the nursery, in addition to a cot/cotbed try to include a chair for quiet times with your baby and also make sure that any furniture is stable and secure, cannot be pulled over or fall and has smooth edges to avoid injury.
