You usually think the baby’s room needs a crib, a mobile, cute wallpaper and a monitor. While all of these things are well and good, you might be forgetting that babies are hardly aware of these things.
Babies only want to be fed, stay warm and have their senses satisfied. More than the trappings of a cute baby, you should remember that it’s still all about their health and needs.
So if you’re building a new room or house, make sure you include these:
More than a mobile, your child needs to feel warm. What he or she is basically doing is looking for the conditions in the womb. The hydronic underfloor heating should be able to give you one of the most cost efficient temperature regulation options.
A crib is not a necessity. In fact, in Finland, the government provides a cardboard box for children to sleep in—which mothers there love to use as it’s part of their tradition. But a rocking chair can help you put a baby to sleep without keeping you on your feet.
White walls and linens
If you want to be sure that there are no pests or dirt in the baby’s room, keeping everything white can easily tell you if something is amiss. Most baby clothes are white to help parents identify insects and small objects on the baby.
Large window that gets sunlight in the morning
You don’t know if your child might get jaundice when he or she is born. Even if your child is completely healthy, getting some sun right in the baby’s room is convenient and keeps the child away from the dusty drivewayoutside your home.
Not exactly what you thought your baby’s room should have, right? While most of us have survived infancy with none of these, being able to give these to your baby keeps your little one healthier and happier.
