Information & Advice
Decorating your little one's nursery is an exciting time for expectant parents. Our guide can help you create their very first bedroom.
Cribs & Baskets
Cots & Cot Beds
A crib or Moses basket is a great first bed for newborn babies up to three to four months, helping them feel secure while they're so tiny. Baskets are easily moved, helping you keep them close to you, whilst a traditional swinging crib makes a beautiful first bed.
Choosing the right cot or cot bed can provide your little one with years of comfort. Many cots have a drop side rail to make moving your baby to and from the crib easier, or an adjustable height mattress base. Some can even be converted into a junior bed, providing more value in the long-run.
Once you've chosen the all-important cot or crib, you'll probably start thinking about other furniture you'll need for baby. They don't need much in the early days, but we've pulled together our top essentials to help you keep the nursery feeling neat and spacious.
We recommend buying a new mattress for your baby rather than using a second hand one, as it is important for it to be clean, firm and showing no signs of deterioration. Remember, small babies are not good at controlling their own body temperature and can easily overheat, so always keep an eye on your baby's room temperature.
It's only natural that you'll want to keep your baby as safe as possible. As little ones spend so much of their time snoozing in the early days, there are some safety gadgets available that you may want to consider whether it's for protecting your mattress and cot rails, or keeping an eye on your baby from another room.
