Getting a Home Ready for a New Baby

Getting a Home Ready for a New Baby
A new baby is on the way and you’ve begun decorating the nursery and clearing away clutter in your house. Chances are you are also working on enhancing your home in other ways as well. There are furniture pieces you can’t do without, such as purchasing a new crib (unless this is your second child). You may also be implementing calming elements, such as cooler tones on the walls that’ll have a calming affect on a baby. Plus, who can wait to organize the closet with all of those fun baby accessories?! All of these elements combined will not only enhance the appearance of your home but will create a tranquil environment for when the new baby arrives.

Clear clutter and begin to decorate  
If you haven’t already done so -- even if the nursery is currently being used as a place to store boxes or other elements -- go ahead and start sorting and organizing. When you’re able, set up the nursery and implement new toys, diapers, books, and other supplies and clothing that your baby will need. Of course don’t forget about favorite elements such as handmade tutu dresses. As you clear away clutter, you’ll have a darling room and other interior spaces that will be organized and ready in time for the baby to arrive.

An organized closet will help a lot when the baby comes home from the hospital. You can organize clothing according to size and color, or both if you prefer. Setting up a way to easily find clothing when things get chaotic will be easier on the mother. Plus, it’ll also make it easier to find the perfect outfit for a special occasion. Baby headbands, toddler hair bows, and ruffled baby bloomers are just a few accessories that will be fun organizing and showing off in your baby’s closet.
How to clean furniture
It’s not only important to incorporate new décor pieces and furniture to add to your comfort, but cleaning your furniture is also something else to consider. The reasoning behind this is because cleaning your furniture will eliminate any potential products that may have soaked into your sofas or other furniture.  Clean your furniture with water or a dry duster instead of adding more scents or potentially dangerous products that a baby shouldn’t be around. Environmentally safe products and clean furniture will ensure that your baby doesn’t suffer from any allergies when he or she comes home from the hospital.
Calming elements for a tranquil room  
What kind of calming elements would you like in your home when you are most likely up late rocking the baby to sleep and feeding him or her too? A durable and soft rocking chair will be your best friend while rocking and feeding your child. Other elements such as calming colors on the walls or perhaps even an indoor water fountain will create a calming atmosphere that will appeal to your sense of sight and sound.

Sleep right along with the baby and calming décor pieces will create just what you need – a place of solace when a newborn baby is getting used to her new environment, and you’re getting used to having a new baby in your home too.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
