Back in December 2015 I shared a few Nursery Decor / Baby Nursery blog posts with you all and since then I haven't really had the chance to do much else to it. Now that I am back at work and things are settled I actually have time to add a little more to it. If you missed the previous posts you can catch up below.
My most popular baby post - Tips On Getting Through Your First Month With A Newborn
Nicole will be staying at my aunts for 3 nights a week occasionally so we needed to buy a new cot / mattress for her house. I decided to move the mattress we are using to hers and pick up this Sniglar Cot from Ikea and replace the mattress at mine with *The Little Green Sheep cot mattress.
The Little Green Sheep twist natural latex cot mattress is dual sided so it will grow with Nicole from 0-5 years. One sided is firm recommended for babies and the other side gives durable support for toddler. It's made using the most natural ingredients cotton, coconut, natural latex and wool. What's also great is that its free from toxins / harmful chemicals and breathable and anti dust mite. We also added The Little Green Sheep 100% waterproof mattress protector under the bed sheets just in case there are any accidents. It's so important to get a good mattress for your little one as sleep is so important if your little one sleeps you sleep = happy mummy! (My post on Nicole sleeping through with Ewan the sheep)
We are also loving the Aden & Anis classic swaddle blankets. We brought these from TK Maxx (full price £45 we paid £19.99 for a pack of 4) at fraction of the cost and they have multi uses - blanket / making it into a pillow for the pram / in the car covering the sun / using it for burping after feed etc... The more you wash them the softer / more absorbent they get. I would highly recommend buying these for newborn.
Look how happy she looks in her cot!
I picked up these shelves from Ikea end of last year but never got round to putting them up. I planned to use the as a book shelf like photo below taken from Apartment Therapy. Now all I need is a selection of books to complete the look! Hopefully I can get on with this once mother leaves and returns to HK.
That's all from me...hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday weekend!
