The baby room - a cozy home for your cuddly little mouse
The baby room must not be crowded with furniture
First think about what you absolutely want to have in the baby's room. A baby cot is sure to be at the top of your must-have list because it always plays the central role in the design of a baby’s room. You also need a changing table with a changing mat.
Many parents choose it because these pieces of furniture are practical and specially designed for the baby's room. In this way, you keep everything you need close at hand and don't lose energy rummaging around in the closet for a romper or a soft towel. In addition to these three pieces of furniture, you must also think of your mother and save her strength. You can place a rocking chair or a comfortable armchair in a free corner of the room, where mom can rest while breastfeeding or giving a bottle. In no case is it desirable to overload the baby's room with other, completely useless furniture. On the one hand they spoil the look of the room, on the other hand they leave too little free space.
Every mom deserves this comfort.

Safety of mother and baby are top priorities when setting up the baby room
When furnishing and designing your baby room, you must first think about the safety of mother and baby. Experts do not recommend choosing furniture with hard edges. You also have to avoid small details that can easily become unstable. Some furniture and textiles emit toxins, so you still need to find out what materials and exactly how these pieces are made when you buy them. In addition to the furniture mentioned above, you also need a mattress for the cot and the changing table, which should be made of latex or foam and not too soft.
The mattress on the changing table must be ergonomic and breathable, but not too soft.
Baby and toddler clothing must be made from organic materials and natural fibers.
All duvet covers and baby clothes must be made of high-quality fabrics that allow the little one's skin to breathe well and help regulate heat. Therefore, we can only advise you to only choose baby clothes that are made from natural fibers such as cotton, wool and silk. Bio-materials can also be used here. But no synthetic fibers please, because these are not permeable to air and easily accumulate the heat. This is not recommended for babies.
