I'm after some help and ideas please!!
I work in a Nursery and i'm starting in the baby room, it's a new brand new room.

SO.... What would your dream baby room be like??

Describe the room and the nursery. Is it purpose built or a conversion?

It would be full of lovely people who snuggle the babies!

That's the main thing I remember (and appreciated) about the baby room at DD's nursery.

But also...

The babies loved the little ball pool in the corner of the room. They had a mirror on the wall, a big comfy sofa and lots of rugs with different textures/ colours. The nursery staff often changed the layout of the room, apparently to keep the babies interested.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Interesting things hanging from the ceiling is good, to keep them interested when they can't yet sit up. Also the baby room in DD's nursery had a kind of foil/steel piece of wall that is like a mirror and the little ones love it, looking at themselves all the time (once they are crawling and sitting). Beanbags and things so the carers can hold/feed the babies comfortably and babies can also snooze/lie on.

IMO too many people chose beige-like colours to be fashionable but babies really prefer bright, constrasting colours. I chose yellow because bright and good for both sexes.

We have

  • settees and comfy chairs where the carers and babies can sit & snuggle
  • lots of scarves, dingle dangles on the ceiling, providing movement & gentle sounds
  • lots of pictures/mirrors/textures on the wall up to about 3 ft high for interest
  • easy access to bottles without having t leave the room/line of sight

    I have a think, & if I can, add more later
