Having a baby is one of the most exciting things to happen to a gay couple! After all, it’s not a clear road to getting our bundles of joy born.
One of the most exciting parts of the process for dads-to-be is the creation of a nursery for the newcomer. Babies obviously require a large amount of specific equipment, such as changing mats, clothes, toys and a crib. Preparing the nursery so that everything they need is available when they come home makes the impending arrival more real for the household. Choosing the color, style and overall look of the room depends largely on the personalities of the parents but many opt for designer items to ensure that they are of high standards and do the job they were made to do well, whilst looking aesthetically pleasing.
One area which can really alter the overall look of the room is the crib itself and the bedding within. For the first few years, the crib will be the dominating piece of furniture in the room and every visitor to the home will at some point peer in at the newborn as they sleep in their crib. The baby will spend a large proportion of its time sleeping for the first weeks and months so it makes sense to ensure that this is one area which the parents are particularly happy with.
Celebrities are renowned for using the best products and manufacturers for their babies. This endorsement, whether paid or not, brings certain products to the forefront of the publicís mind and many parents feel that if it is good enough for a film star, it is good enough for them and their baby. Finding the products to buy can be a different matter though, particularly if you do not live in or near to a large city. However, the Internet has made it much easier to find whatever product you are looking for and to have it shipped directly to your home.
We loved shopping at Buy Buy Baby, Pottery Brand Kids and Create & Barrel for our bedding. Everything you will need for your baby and nursery is available to buy in one place and every product has a photograph to allow you to see it before you buy it.
Buy what’s not just aseptically pleasing, but also a gentle, quality cloth. Don’t cut corners on bedding, our baby will spend a lot of time sleeping on them.
