Space-Saving Nursery Ideas

Designing a nursery is one of the most fun parts about preparing for baby, and you’ve probably already started pinning some ideas to your Pinterest board. If you have limited space in your nursery room, or if baby will be sharing a room with you or a sibling, it might seem like it’s impossible to fit everything in. But we’ve seen nurseries in even the smallest of spaces, and they are just as cute and functional as ever. Here’s how to fit those big dreams into a small space.

Think Mini

Anything mini is automatically 10x cuter, and mini cribs are no exception. We love the Babyletto Origami Mini Crib because it’s compact AND portable. It’s our favorite solution for Grandma’s house because it has a small footprint when in use, and, true to its name, folds away for easy storage.

Has the car seat ever been in an accident?

Did you know that you are supposed to replace your car seat after any accident–even if the car seat seems fine, and even if the child was not in the seat at the time of the accident? A car seat it meant to protect your child in the event of an accident, but it’s not designed to withstand multiple collisions. Small or internal damages caused by an accident can compromise the safety of any car seat, even if it appears to be fine.

With that in mind, you want to be 100% sure that the car seat you are getting for your child has not been in any accidents before. If you’re getting a used seat, it’s usually best to get only from someone you know and trust. Ask them about the entire history of the car seat.
