Our Baby Boy's Nursery
Updated: Aug 24, 2021
When I first found out I was pregnant, Ethan and I were still living in a 2 bedroom apartment. The second bedroom we were using as our office space, so we were a little nervous about making the space we had work. Thankfully, we found our house pretty early on in our house search and moved in early in my second trimester - with plenty of time to spare before baby!
Even though I was excited about decorating this space for our baby boy, I was so nervous to begin acquiring furniture and making it “real.” Pregnancy after miscarriage completely changed the experience for me, and I didn’t want to get too attached...just in case. We didn’t start on it until early July (which was around 25 weeks pregnant for me), and we didn’t go with a theme which surprised a lot of people! I wanted it to be neutral and fresh, while still being inviting and cozy.
Now, this room is my favorite room in the house. It was a lot of fun to pull everything together from scratch. Even Sadie loves it. I have spent a lot of time sitting in here, dreaming about what it will be like watching our boy grow up in this space. The nights spent breastfeeding in the rocker, the clothes that will continue to fill his dresser and closet, and the toys we will accumulate for him to play with on the soft, shaggy carpet. It is a magical space, and today I decided I would share with you the details on all of the pieces! Scroll down for links and if you have specific questions, feel free to ask!
Crib and Changing Table are both from DELTA CHILDREN. They have a bunch of different styles and colors to choose from. You can also buy full nursery sets from their website if you choose! What sold me on this company was that they are green guard gold certified, which means they have low chemical emissions making it super safe for the baby.
Dresser from ASHLEY FURNITURE. I wanted a vertical dresser because of the smaller space we were working with, and this was perfect. Plenty of space and fairly easy to put together.
Baby Relax Rylan Swivel Gliding Recliner is from Walmart and is incredibly comfortable!
Side table was an Amazon find. I love that it has a basket on the bottom to store snacks, burp clothes, and other breastfeeding needs.
Baskets under the changing table I found at Big Lots (no link!)
Floating bookshelves from Amazon. I love that they are up on the wall and they hold a decent amount of books!
Baby Monitor is from Miku. After months of research, we settled on this one because it tracks breathing in real time but has no wearables which we liked.
Mirror and lamp I found at Target (no link!!)
Rug from Target. It’s a shag rug and SO SOFT. I foresee Sadie taking lots of naps in here when baby is napping!
Hatch Baby Rest Sound Machine. This sound machine was a *must have* for us. It’s super easy to use, can be controlled from your phone via bluetooth, and has a variety of different sounds, lullabies, and is a nightlight as well. It really does iit all! (I need the adult version for our room!)
Rainbow Baby sign from The Sunny Nest Decor on Etsy. It was important to me to have something in the nursery acknowledging our rainbow baby & honoring the baby we lost. This sign is beautiful and very well made.
Sheer curtains were gifted to me. Curtain rods from Amazon.
Cordless Blinds are from Walmart. They are pretty good at filtering out the light and look really / high quality despite being relatively inexpensive.
