Hygiene & Safety
Always wash your hands before you prepare your baby’s food.
When warming food stir thoroughly and test the temperature on the back of your hand before feeding it to your baby.
Check and follow the ‘Best Before’ dates on packs of commercial & baby foods.
Never feed whole nuts to your baby – babies and young children can easily choke.
When your baby is ready to use a high chair make sure it is sturdy with adjustable safety straps or use a harness.
Setting up your Nursery
Planning the design of the baby’s nursery is an exciting activity for expecting parents but often it can be time consuming with all the decisions that needs to be made.
When it comes to choosing a theme and decor to match, decorating for the nursery allows more room for fun and creativity, but where should you begin when faced with endless baby nursery designs to choose from?
A good way to choose a theme for the nursery is to go with an idea that you have a connection with, perhaps a favourite pastime or a nursery rhyme.
The sooner your baby settles in and feels comfortable in their nursery the better off you and your baby will be. The team at HomeTrends Baby & Kid would be delighted to show you how to organize a:
- Cot, change table and comfortable chair
- Baby-safe environment to avoid any accidents
- Beautifully designed and decorated nursery
Needs some inspiration?
For extra inspiration, check out what ideas the professionals have come up with and adapt some elements that you like into your own theme. If it’s a popular theme that you’re after, visit our kid’s section where you can find the latest trends.
But remember, a nursery theme doesn’t necessarily mean you need to base it on a popular character. Themes can be built around simple and clean colour schemes, fabrics and patterns.
Build on the theme through accessories
A practical approach to creating a customizable nursery is to choose neutral furniture pieces and elaborate on the theme by adding accessories. Apply the theme throughout the nursery in your choice of accessories like bedding, rugs, lamps, mobiles, wall art and curtains – all of which are items that can be easily switched when it comes time to redecorate or refresh the look of the décor.
No matter the style of baby nursery design you have chosen, be sure to pick a theme that appeals to you and create a safe and cozy environment for your precious little one.
