A changing table should be well padded with guardrails and safety straps for the baby. Since it can be used till the baby is two years old, it should be appropriately sized. It normally comes with dresser drawers, open shelves or a combination of both. Accessories on a changing table include changing pads, organizers and wipe warmers.
A baby monitor will alert the parents to its crying while in another room. It serves to add reassurance to the parents that they can still monitor their baby even from afar. There are several types of baby monitors – audio, audio/movement and audio/video monitors.
Play Pens Or Play Yards
The basic design can be used as a playpen or a crib. While one type of playpen has a bassinet built in for the newborn, another is adorned with a canopy style to keep your infant shielded and cool. Accessories you can purchase separately include a changing station, netting for outdoor use and sheets.
A chest of drawers for the newborn is a must. Again, just like the crib, these too come in different colors and themes to match the nursery style.
All parents need this very essential piece of furniture, which is available in different types like adjustable, conventional, booster and wooden. The high chair should have an adjustable tray, locking mechanism, a safe and sturdy restraint system and possibly rolling casters, which can be locked easily. If the high chair has a reclining facility, you can use it to bottle feed the baby as well.
A car seat is a must not only by need but also by law; it is an important item in the newborn’s ensemble. Typically, all babies have to travel in the back of the car with the seat facing the rear of the car. The different types include infant car seat, convertible and booster seats.
