Wow, thank you ALL so much for your kind words and excitement about the nursery… we are totally feeling the LOVE and can’t wait to meet this little one! This was my first time ever being exposed to pretty much any and all things baby and wow… did I learn a lot! From what is needed for a space like this, to where to shop, to how much things in this baby world cost, I’m so grateful my older sister is navigating this foreign territory before me so I can LEARN from her. But before all that (baby steps people), here’s a source list and answers to the questions you guys asked. Crib Sheets: Pottery Barn Clearance <— note: these sheets are still available but when we ordered them they ended up taking almost 2 months LONGER to ship than PB originally told us. So if you have a hard deadline (as in the baby’s arrival), please take that into consideration when ordering.
If you look closely there are three faces, which I thought was a fun touch for this soon-to-be family of 3. (Plus I needed to alternate heights on these shelves & these quirky vases totally fit the bill without breaking the bank). Hiking Boots: Kohl’s <– I couldn’t find the exact ones to link.
Leather Pouf: Land of Nod Outlet <– comes in SO many colors and is cute to use around the house… even if you don’t have a nursery! Glider: Delta Children (available at Target, Amazon) <– we chose this exact glider because the reviews showed that it was VERY comfortable, the size was not bulky but instead petite enough for this space without being too small to get comfortable, and the variety of colors fit the “look” we were going for. Rookie Tip: Learned how we made this gallery wall baby proof in this post.
Dresser: Land of Nod Outlet <– we found it on super sale there AND got an additional 30% off. Taking this step is super important in order to make sure the dresser is secure and will NEVER fall forward injuring the child when he or she gets older. Not that this simple rug pad will totally keep it from sliding when a toddler is climbing all over it, but it does keep it in place pretty well.
After everything is secure, you can slip on the changing pad cover and shouldn’t really see any of those “safety steps”. Now before we officially close the chapter on this happy camper nursery, I’d love to hear from our fellow moms reading today’s post. What is the BIGGEST and best piece of advice that you could give Katie as she gets ready to dive headfirst into this crazy motherhood journey?
