Getting your baby’s nursery ready is a lot of fun. I can remember picking out paint colors, bedding and toys for my baby and being so excited about it! With the internet able to supply you with as much information as one parent could need, it’s easy now to find out what you will need and what you will not. Being a parent myself, I can tell you firsthand what I found to be most necessary and what really we could have done without. Here are five must have products for baby’s nursery:
Of course, we think the Zipadee-Zip is a must have baby product. Happy sleep makes a happy baby! From the womb to the swaddling blanket to the Zipadee-Zip, your baby will never sleep better! When your baby is nearing the end of her swaddling days, she’ll want something that feels like a swaddle, but offers her some freedom. The Zipadee-Zip is the perfect solution to transition out of the swaddle.
There is nothing more important than your baby’ safety. Babee Talk’s organic bedding is the best bedding out there. It was designed so that baby can sleep safely on healthy organic sheets! Their fitted crib sheets offer your little one pure, sweet slumber with extra quality features that give you extra peace of mind. Why would you let baby sleep on anything else?
You are going to need a changing table for baby that is guaranteed. The PunkinWrap serves as a great blanket to lay baby on and change them with! It also has many other functions that will come in handy. It is the only wrap purposefully designed to function safely and easily as a nursing cover, stroller blanket, car seat cover, changing pad, chest carrier wrap, and tummy time mat.
If you plan on nursing you are going to need a nursing pillow. My favorite nursing pillow is San Diego Bebe. They have both single and twin nursing pillows that are comfortable and of great quality. They also come with a privacy cover, so you can nurse in public and not have to be shy about it!
You’ll be surprised how quickly your baby is ready for tummy time! A soft, stylish padded play mat is the perfect addition to any nursery. Set it down anywhere in your home for baby to play with toys while you get your chores done, or lay on the ground with baby and play!
As a parent, you’re going to spend a lot of time retrieving dropped and thrown pacifiers. PullyPalz came up with a solution! These cute stuffed animals hold a pacifier on each end. They attach to your stroller, car seat, crib or anything else. When one pacifier is thrown away, the other falls into view so your baby is always calm and the pacifiers never get dirty.
Written by Stephanie Parker from Sleepingbaby.com, inventor of the Zipadee-Zip
The motto for Sleeping Baby, makers of the Zipadee-Zip, is: "Inspiring Dreams One Night at A time," and that, in a nutshell, is how it all started…with one little dream that has since become the Parker family's reality. When Brett and Stephanie Parker's daughter, Charlotte, was born, the feeling that welled up inside of them was indescribable; they never realized until first looking into those baby blues of hers that they were even capable of that kind of love.
When it was time to transition baby from swaddling, the Parkers tried every sleep sack on the market and every swaddle weaning trick they could find for nearly two weeks and nothing worked to get baby Charlotte to fall and stay asleep.
Stephanie became determined to restore sleep and sanity to their household and set out to find a solution that would soothe Charlotte's startle reflex and provide her the cozy womb-like environment she loved so much but still give her the freedom to roll over and wiggle around in her crib safely. Out of sheer desperation and exhaustion, the Zipadee-Zip was born. The first Zipadee-Zip(R) Stephanie put together on her little sewing machine worked like magic!
To date tens of thousands of Zipadee-Zips have been sold and all from word-of-mouth marketing. It is so rewarding for the Parkers to see other parents and babies getting the sleep they both need and deserve!
