Preparing your baby's room
Preparing the room
- If possible, choose a calm, sun-filled room that is close to your bedroom. That way, you can get there easily – particularly when your baby wakes up during the night.
- Choose soft or light colors for the walls; bright colors are stimulating and could disturb your baby’s ability to fall asleep. If you like intense hues, introduce them in small touches, such as furniture items, sheets or curtains, decorative objects, and stuffed animals.
- Choose hardwood or tile for the floors, as opposed to carpet, which can be allergenic.
- Use soft and indirect sources of light.
