With a little one on the way, you want to make sure your nursery is perfect. You have your crib and /shop/bedding/ bedding in place, along with a cozy rocking chair for late-night feedings. You have a dresser, a changing table and the layette washed and folded. Now it’s time to fill in the gaps with a few important — and adorable –– nursery essentials. Pottery Barn Kids offers everything you need to organize your nursery and prepare it for your baby’s arrival.
Start with a sweet mobile to hang over your little one’s crib. We offer a variety of themes, shapes and colours. Inspire your future astronomer with a mobile that represents the planets in the solar system or the moon and stars. Indulge your love for cute animals with plush puppies, elephants, lambs, bears and bunnies. A sailboat mobile complements any nautical nursery, while organza flowers and butterflies make the room feel like a spring garden. Go for cool with an ombre driftwood mobile in a variety of colours. Many options even play soothing music to keep your baby entertained. Just make sure the mobile is out of reach. Once your little one is able to sit up, remove it from the crib for safety.
Your baby spends so much time in her crib. Why not add a soft play mat to your nursery so she can explore and stretch with an occasional change of scenery? Our plush play mats – shaped like lamps, puppies, bears and other cute animals – are ideal for tummy time. You can even take them on the go when you are travelling or spending time in a hotel. They are BPA, phthalate and lead free and made from soft Cribton and polyester. Personalization with your baby’s first initial is also available. Each one is so soft and warm, you may even find yourself cuddling up next to your little one on the floor.
A changing table or dresser with a changing station on top is another nursery essential you will be glad you included. We offer changing pads in a variety of styles and colours to complement your nursery and to keep your baby clean and dry. Made from materials that are soft to the touch, like Cribton velour, chamois and organic Cribton, these pads keep your changing station in excellent condition while keeping your baby comfy at the same time. Surrounded with elastic trim, they fit snugly on your changing pad.
Something else that is handy to have at your changing station is storage for your supplies, like diapers, lotions and ointments. From pails and hampers to baskets and boxes, we offer plenty of options. Start with a diaper pail that keeps odours trapped inside and features a childproof lock to prevent little hands from opening it. A nice hamper made from products such as bamboo and rattan is ideal for tossing dirty clothing until laundry day. A changing table runner fits over your furniture with pockets on the ends to hold diapers and other important supplies. You can also add a matching hanging organizer to the end of your crib to hold everything from sheeting to clothing.
We offer a number of sets made from materials such as canvas and rattan. Use them on top of dressers, inside closets and on bookcases to keep toys, toiletries and linens organized. Some of our sets feature large pop-up hampers and pop-up totes that fit perfectly into the cubbies in several of our bookcases and other furniture. We can even personalize many of these products with your baby’s name or monogram.
Once you have all of these nursery essentials, there are a few other items you may want to consider. A soft, child-size chair makes for a cute addition to your nursery decor and becomes a fun toy or spot to sit and enjoy a book when your baby begins walking. Make teething time a little easier with our collection of teethers that are free from BPA, lead and phthalates. Don’t forget a pair of plush animal slippers to keep those tiny feet cozy and warm.
