Your baby's nursery, A to Z
Before you start your nursery, evaluate its purpose. Is this room going to be used mainly for sleeping and/or as a place to store your baby's clothes and toys? Or is it going to be an everyday play area?



Keep your answer in mind as you prepare the room. If sleeping and storage are your goals, keep what you need close to the door. If you plan to spend a lot of time in the nursery, make sure there's plenty of comfortable room for you both to play. "A crib, changing table and armoire are nursery staples, but parents find that other pieces add comfort and convenience," says Pam O'Halloran. "Will late-night feedings require a mother's chair? Will older siblings sit in on afternoon stories if there is a playful area rug?"
