Baby Nursery Setup featuring Leander Cot

By Jess P, Baby Village on 19 June 2018

I’m going to start with a confession… I wrote this blog and recorded this video 8 weeks before I was due! It’s now 8 weeks since Bub arrived and I’m only just getting to publish this, so I apologise for the delay, but trust you’ll enjoy it anyway!

For me, one of the most fun and exciting things about having a baby is setting up the nursery! There is certainly enough inspiration on Instagram (#nurseryinspo) and Pinterest to fuel grand plans! I liken it a bit to wedding planning, there’s the full spectrum of simple to extravagant and you can fork out a lot or create something special on a shoestring budget. Let’s face it, the trimmings on this room are for Mum more so than Bub! I’ve selected a base palette of grey and white – original I know! But I like everything to match, and as I mentioned in an earlier post, we don’t know who’s coming to stay yet… I also have the luxury of essentially putting together a girl pack and a boy pack that I can have delivered once Bub is born!

So, what have I chosen for Bub’s nursery… the Leander Cot is a stunning timeless piece of furniture. I love the shape and combination of enclosed ends and visibility along the sides. While the Leander is at the upper end of the scale, it’s a clever investment piece that will grow with Bub until after he/she is off to school. The pieces included will take us through until age 5, and if we want to add the Junior bed extension we can stretch that out to age 7. The Leander also comes with two levels of mattress choice Comfort+ or Premium+.

 

 
While there are plenty of options for Baby change tables and dressers, I’ve selected the matching Leander Dresser to sit alongside the cot. I love the soft lines of the draws, the unique felt handles and the fact that again this piece of furniture will last for years to come. As a Baby change area, I can’t wait to use the Leander Matty, a cleverly designed polyurethane foam mat that wipes down easily and can double as a comfortable place for Bub to lay for floor time with an activity arch.

Although it’s not essential, having a nice comfy chair for feeding Bub, whether breast or bottle, is a nice addition to the nursery if you have the space. I’ve selected the Hobbe London Rocker* in Cement/White, however there are plenty of nursing chairs to choose from. I decided on the London as it is the narrowest so will fit the space I have available and I’m small and want to feel cocooned, plus I wanted to be able to comfortably rest my head. While there is a matching Ottoman, I don’t want to clutter the room, as we also have a single bed in there.

To keep with the grey & white theme, and to keep the nursery smelling fresh, I've added the Ubbi Nappy Bin, which as well as being relatively good looking for a bin, is made of steel rather than plastic so will never take on the smell of it's contents, plus I can use whatever bin liners I like! 

The final step is to add d├ęcor to the room and make it nice and inviting for Bub (not to mention Instagram-worthy!) so stay tuned!...

*Unfortunately Hobbe have decided to focus on the International market and will no longer be distributing their beautiful chairs in Australia. Hurry to secure yours before stocks run out! (as at 16-April)
