If you haven’t seen on my Instagram page already, I’ve got some great news! We are expecting a baby girl this year and we are over the moon. So naturally I wanted to take some time to talk about nursery ideas to satisfy my nesting urges and also provide some great ideas all in one place.
This time I did baby boy nursery room ideas but I also did a post on baby girl nursery ideas :))
Most of what you will see here at Keep Toddlers Busy is activities for toddlers, preschool and even beyond, but parenting involves so much more and I can’t help myself! So I love to talk about tips and home life (including storage and decor) as well.
A lot of people loved the posts so that’s another reason we are doing a nursery version as well!
I scoured the internet looking for some of the best tips and inspiration, and I have finally put together my compilation.
A Few Do’s and Don’ts of Putting Together Baby’s Nursery
Here are a few tips that are think are important for setting up a great nursery!
Designing a nursery for your sweet baby can be a great experience, but it can also seem hard to know exactly where to start! My suggestion is to take some time to sit down and plan out your wants,needs, and essentially your plan! Use these tips below to get started!
- DON’T FORGET FUNCTION- It is so easy for me to get caught up in the pretty stuff, and then I always have to remember that the room needs to function 🙂 Don’t forget the necessities! A place for baby to sleep, have diaper changed, be rocked, store essentials, and play!
- NEUTRAL OR GENDER SPECIFIC?– Choosing whether you plan to go with traditional gender oriented colors or go with a more neutral look will help you to narrow down some of the ideas. In this post, I have divided the nursery ideas into sub-categories for your convenience. (yes just for you)
- PICK A THEME OR COLOR SCHEME– Picking a theme or a color scheme is a great way to narrow down your vision. I hope the ideas below provide some inspiration
- PLAN FOR YOUR NURSERY SIZE- The size of your nursery can have a huge impact on things like crib size, changing table size, and storage. Take some time to measure the room so you can plan for the space.
- PLAN FOR STORAGE- Storage is EVERYTHING. This time it won’t just be clothes and toys, but you have to plan for diapers and all of the necessities! (think diaper caddy)
- DON’T STRESS ABOUT TIMING- With my son, I stressed about having the nursery done in time only to realize that I didn’t use the room for multiple months. While I think it’s easier to get those things out of the way before baby comes and time is more limited, I also wouldn’t stress about having every single little thing in place!

I personally plan to incorporate some of these ideas on a rolling basis. I think some will be better while the kid’s are young, and some may be a little better utilized once the kids are a little older.
