The best items to include in your newborn’s room are often small but very useful.
It’s only natural that you want your newcomer to have an equally cute bedroom.
You’ve spent nine months (probably longer) dreaming of the perfect nursery that will house toddlers, all their little outfits and cuddly toys.
You want the space to look stylish, of course – after all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in it without sleep – but it’s also worth considering how the space will work in practice.
Yes, this miniature teepee is absolutely adorable, but how long will your newborn baby realistically spend there?

Rechargeable gravity lamp
The ideal night light gives you just enough visibility to walk into your little one’s room without crashing and waking them up.
This elegant option from Stellar Haus gives a very soft and variable light.
Goldie + Ace baby fitted sheet
The newcomer will be as cozy as an insect with this ultra fine stretch cotton jersey sheet printed with an adorable strawberry print.
Shnuggle Squishy Changing Mat
The clean lines and subtly raised sides of this minimalist changing mat will help keep a baby restless. Plus, with no nooks and crannies, everything is a snap to clean.
Lion rug OYOY caramel
This camel colored rug will add a touch of whimsy to any nursery, but it’s also soft enough that you can sit comfortably or play on it. Belly time here you come!
Ubbi diaper bin
The attractive gray and white herringbone pattern of this diaper bin adds some visual interest to an otherwise practical item.
It’s made of powder coated steel with rubber gaskets and a sliding cover to keep odors at bay. For added convenience, this model can be used with any standard trash bag or reusable fabric liner.
Mobile coral reef
It’s never too early to explain to Bubba the threat climate change poses to our natural environment!
This charming mobile features a shoal of colorful sea creatures and is a delicious way to soothe or stimulate baby.
Yogasleep Hushh White Noise Machine
A white noise machine can be useful for masking disruptive household noises (think loud siblings or the neighbor who mows the lawn for the third time this month) and encourages babies to fall asleep and stay that way.
This portable, low-profile machine comes with three sound options: Bright White Noise, Deep White Noise, or Soft Surf.
Nature Baby magnetic card
With Te Reo Māori and English place names on this screen-printed map, your little one can play while learning about our geography. You don’t have a magnetic surface yet? A box of magnetic paint (which can be tinted in a range of hues) will sort it out for you.
Tiger storage bag
Keeping the pieces on the floor of a child’s room is an endless eternal task. Keep them organized but always close at hand with these playful bags from AC Homestore.
KASPAR storage box
If you need a more permanent toy storage solution, this trunk should do the trick. The rounded edges also decrease the risk of accidental head bumps.
