Checklist: Nursery

Taken from here.

Whether creating a nursery is a treat or a trial (or both!) for you, this checklist will guide you through the process. (Items with a * are must-haves.)

[Ordered, received, exchanged, waiting  ] Crib, cradle or bassinet*
• Slats no more than 2 3/8 inches apart
• Corner posts no more than 1/16 of an inch above frame
• No cutouts in headboard or footboard
• Top rails at least 26 inches above mattress

[Received ] Firm, flat mattress fit snugly in crib (less than two fingers should fit between mattress and crib)*

[  ] 1-3 washable crib mattress pads

[Owned  ] Bumper pads covering inside perimeter (secured by at least six ties or snaps, with all extra length removed)

[DIY  ] 2-4 fitted crib sheets*

[Borrowed  ] 4-6 soft, light receiving blankets*

[DIY  ] 1-2 heavier blankets (for colder climates)

[Thanks, Mom! DIY  ] Rocking or arm chair

Needs a cover to protect the pretty off-white upholstery. Between this kiddo and, well, ME, there’s no way it’ll stay nice and pretty for long.

[Chosen  ] Music box, sound machine or CD player

Will donate my iPod Touch, must buy a set of speakers (dock?).

[In progress  ] Crib mobile with black and white images (remove when baby can support self on hands and knees)

Have a couple in mind, must choose one.

[Chosen  ] Baby monitor

No idea.

[Chosen – goes with music box  ] Nightlight

No idea.

[  ] Dresser

Sort of. Just have to choose one of the options.

[  ] Toy basket

No idea.

[  ] Swing or bouncy chair

No idea.

My additions:

[ ] Bookshelf (must. have. books.)

[ ] Lighting (table lamp + overhead light)
