IN THE NURSERY
Our guide to decorating, bedding and furnishings to help you create a comfortable space for your newborn to rest and grow. For more detailed information, visit Baby Steps on your PC or laptop.
A furniture set lets you fill your baby's room with nursery furniture essentials all in one go. With sets that include combinations of cots, changers and storage solutions, it's a simple way to create a beautifully coordinated and functional nursery.
A changing table or station is a really useful addition to your nursery. By keeping your changing mat, nappies and wipes all in one place, changing your little one becomes much easier and helps keep your nursery clean and tidy. If there is not quite enough room for a table, a cot-top changer cleverly turns your cot into a space-saving changing table.
A nursing chair is designed to give you comfort and support as you feed and spend time with your new arrival. Many nursing chairs also come with a footstool and a gliding function, letting you gently lull your baby back and forth. Add soft lighting for a truly soothing spot for you and your baby.
Plenty of storage
From clothes and bedding to nappies and toys, you will need plenty of storage to keep all your baby essentials organised. Chests of drawers and wardrobes with plenty of shelving will let you store away those extras that will soon accumulate. Changing tables also offer a great storage solution for all your nappy-changing basics.

Moses Baskets, Cribs, Cots
and Cot Beds
Cribs and Moses baskets – Suitable for your baby up to 3-4 months old. The movability of a crib or Moses basket lets you keep your baby close to you in those first few months. Check out our range of Cribs
Cots – As soon your little one starts to become active and outgrows their crib, you can transfer your child to a cot or cot bed. Most cots can also be used from birth as they let you raise and lower the base position, with the highest position for newborns and the lowest for when your baby can stand. Check out our range of Cots
Cot bed – A cot bed allows you to remove the sides, transforming your cot into a small bed for your developing little-one â€“ so you can continue using it as your baby grows. Check out our range of Cot Beds
Choosing the right mattress
The mattress you chose should be firm, flat and ideally have a washable cover for easy cleaning. There are a range of options, from foam to hypoallergenic, with more expensive mattresses offering a more sophisticated sprung base for ultimate comfort. Simply make sure the measurements fit your cot or cot bed so that there is a snug fit between the mattress and sides of the cot, as this will ensure a safer sleep.

Decorating the nursery
A soft glow from a night light can create a comforting and soothing surrounding as your baby settles down for sleep, and lets you tend to them in the night without turning on any bright lights. Some simply plug in to your wall socket, while others attach to the side of the cot - just make sure they are securely fastened to the cot to avoid any risk to your baby.
Painting the Nursery
Welcome your new arrival with a beautiful room they are sure to love. From bright and vibrant, to soft and sweet, there's a range of colours to choose from to give them the perfect nursery. And it's important to make sure you look after little lungs with suitable, solvent free paint.
Why stop at adding some colour? Add stickers or wall art to make your little ones' nursery really feel like home. We have plenty of options available, from popular characters to cute animals and superheroes.
Mobiles that securely attach to the baby's cot, and out of reach of little hands, can provide comforting music and project soft lights to help soothe baby to sleep. Avoid mobiles that are too visually stimulating for sleep time, as this may prevent your little one from drifting off.
A blackout blind or lined curtain is a simple way to make sure your baby isn't disturbed by outside light. Simple to put up, these are an easy way to make sure natural light does not affect your baby's sleeping routine – just make sure you keep the cord safely out of reach of little hands. If you are away from home you can also get travel blackout blinds to replicate the same sleeping environment for your little one, wherever you are.
