It’s time for the big nursery reveal! We spent a couple months slowly accumulating everything we needed for the room, but it only took us about a half a day to put it all together. I love that I have such a handy husband!
The glider is a Stork Craft Hoop Glider and Ottoman from Target. It was the first big item we received, thanks mom! It is great quality and very comfy.
The shelves above the glider are from Ikea. I thought it would be the perfect place for Wyatt’s books. Also temporarily propped up there is the Sleep Sheep. It has white noises like heart beat and ocean to help soothe the baby while he tries to get to sleep. I heard that these are great!
Next up, the crib. We ordered this Stork Craft crib off of Amazon. Since we were so happy with the glider, I thought the crib would be good as well and I was right. It took Jay about one hour to put together. The mattress is a Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams, which has come highly recommended. The sheet is from Target ( I ended up buying all my sheets there).
Above the crib (and above the twin bed and glider as well), are some super cute prints we got on Etsy from Niko & Lily. Unfortunately the first batch we received were bent, but Mary was so quick in getting us a new set. Talk about great customer service! The prints are 8×10 and easy to frame. The frames were only $10 each from Ikea.
Now for the dresser. This was the most annoying thing to get, haha. Our first one sucked, so we went searching far and wide for one that was good quality and affordable. After searching almost a whole day in stores in the Bay Area, I ended up buying this Status 800 dresser from Amazon (the price was $200 less than current price when we purchased it). It came fully assembled and the quality is very good. We placed the changing table right on top and secured it to the dresser in the back so it won’t slide.
After all this was set up I washed all Wyatt’s blankets, newborn clothing, and 0-3 clothing. The top drawer has his newborn sizes (not too many since they only go up to 8 lbs), onesies, and pants. My sis made sure he had one “Auntie” onesie in each size, hehe.
For the first few months, we bought this Pack n Play for our room. It includes a changing station so we will be able to change his diapers while we have a guest sleeping in the nursery. We are going to put it together this weekend. Now time to stock up on the little things, like diapers and wipes. I can’t believe Wyatt is going to be here NEXT month!
