Create different spaces in the baby’s nursery which will work as baby grows. For example, a room can have a reading nook, play space, little discoveries throughout for when she grows as well as the functional feeding/calm space, sleeping and dressing area.
It sounds like a lot but is manageable in even the smallest of rooms.
Keep eating and sleeping spaces consistent with limited distractions (for as long as you can) which will help add calm, comfort and focus for bubs.
Make sure that around the room, there are little point of interest that will keep bubs enjoying her room and always making new discoveries. Keep in mind that spaces should work for you to spend time with her as a baby and then for her to be able to enjoy on her own once she is older.
Little discoveries in a room can be as simple as using wall stickers of animals and shapes etc.. at various heights in the room for baby to find. Remember is doesn't have to be complicated. Just try and imagine how fun it is to discover hidden treasures. Try having a crawl around on the floor yourself. And also think about things hanging on the walls.
hint: IKEA spice racks secured to the wall for little book nooks.
Hint: Etsy is amazing for these kinds of cute finds.
