Pictures of Nurseries/Changing Areas/Baby Areas?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Well, I've got a lot of time on my hands lately and have been setting things up.  I wasn't going to (superstitious and all) but figured, eh, might as well be as prepared as possible.  We aren't doing a nursery this time b/c we don't have room, so have the two kids sharing Nora's room for now.  Here is the changing/diaper/baby area that I've set up in her room.

I posted these a while back, but here is his nursery:

I've changed a couple of things, but nothing big. Dh put an antler mount above the crib, and I made a lamp for the little table. I should get pics of his closet system, it's the bomb! Dh custom designed it. He'll be in our bedroom for the first six months or so, but nothing special in there. smile.gif

How fun!  I was thinking of starting a thread like this, but got too lazy lol.  I actually just took these pics this morning, so perfect timing.  It's a little more staged than it would normally be.  But I've been interviewing with people for babysitting jobs so I need the place to look clean, organized, and "baby".  The crib is cute and all, but I plan to co-sleep like always lol.

 

Crib, baby clothes, changing table, and cloth diaper stash:

Play area (I still need to hang children's wall art and such):

Carrie- love the changing area. I'm in the process of getting ours all finished now. Magnolia isn't having a nursery either until she's a little older and can actually use it to play in. For now we are doing a cosleeper and changing area in my room. I'm jealous of all those covers- we're only using prefolds and covers for the newborn size- but I have yet to purchase covers. Guess I better get on that.

Krist- I love all the pink bedding. You have some nice friends!

I think because I'm a bit of a minimalist and a single mom people assume I'm destitute. redface.gif

 

Ha - that's awesome though.

Thanks!  I went a little overboard with covers.  All of that stuff is not counting anything one-sized...I just think OS is all going to be too big/bulky for a new baby.  I have 12 or so OS dipes with inserts in the other drawers.  redface.gif  I've been told it's a healthy addiction.

They are all so cute!  I'm so jealous of the preparations!  Hopefully by this time next week I can add mine too!

Changing area (we have some B&W pics of the dogs going above/around this area in some way- just go to hang them). The cart will soon hold cloth wipes and a spray bottle of diaper solution (as soon as I make them)

500

Top Drawer: Newborn stash- a few fitteds and a bunch of prefolds
500

Onesies and hats in the 2nd drawer
500

third drawer- mostly smalls and some one sizes- these need to be stuffed but I plan on using the newborn prefolds as inserts once she outgrows those. Bottom drawer is still empty but will probably end up with more diapers eventually.
500

Cosleeper :
500

Cosleeper from the door- I have to fix the headboard area. DH keeps knocking it sideways and off the wall in his sleep eyesroll.gif
500

The closet (well, the baby's half)- bottom row is smaller sized sleepers and holiday outfits - I really want to find a small chest of drawers to put her instead, but haven't found one yet. Off to the corner is a 3 drawer sterlite container w/ all her hairbows and such and on top of it is a basket with all her socks and tights.
Middle row is gowns, Newborn, 0-3 month outfits, and jackets. On the built in shelf behind here are all her jeans, bibs, and everything else that I couldn't find room for.
Top row is 3-6month, 6-9 month clothes and larger sized sleepers.
500


Here are some pics of where her nursery will eventually be. I plan on doing a vintage them, using primary colors and using framed pages from vintage children's books about dogs as artwork on the wall.

I am so impressed, Stormy, with your baby's wardrobe!!!  My goodness what a lucky girl she is!  And what an AMAZING diaper stash!!  

 

I can't wait to get my cosleeper attached.  I ordered the extra feet for it and am still waiting for them!!

post #13 of 26

Oh my goodness! I love these pictures, what a good idea for a thread. Carrie - I wonder if I need one of those pee protector things. Your little guy will undoubtedly show up first, you'll have to let me know how useful it is.

Carrie- I love your changing pad cover!

 

Jill- His room reminds me of where the wild things are! So cute. :)

 

Stormy- She does have a pretty impressive wardrobe! I love baby girl clothes.

 

Here's some of my stuff. Were sharing a room and the "changing station" is in the bathroom.

Her 0-3 month clothes and my diaper stash. I posted up close pics in a different thread. I have a huge tub of clothes for her to grow into already.

My rocking chair, her swing and some toys.

Co-sleeper and stuffed animals. I love that monkey!

 

I think we all need some babies now! wink1.gif

Inspired by you all I took a few pictures today.

 

This LO will be sharing our room for a while, and definitely until after we have moved at the end of October, so I've had to just clear a space to work with.

Picture 010.jpg

This is set up for night time diaper changes, as the real changing table is in DS's room, with all the diaper stash, pail etc. I'll just be using a wet bag here for nighttime.

 

Picture 011.jpg

I'm having to keep the bassinet mostly empty because DS has decided its now one of his favorite play areas. My birth supplies are stashed just behind the bassinet and the baby clothes for NB & 0-3 are in the drawers of my night stand. The basket on top of the towels has my labor comfort items and the other two baskets have baby items (small one is all muslin wraps)

post #16 of 26

LOL. Everyone is so organized and cute. You would die laughing if you saw pics of our space. Changing table has been taken over by a broken drawer out of the bathroom that DS1 stood on and busted last week. I didn't change new baby's dipes there anyway because he screams and it is right by where DS1 sleeps. So the changing pad is now on the kitchen counter with the wipe warmer and a pile of dipes. Hey, I figure it isn't nasty toddler poo yet! Clothes go in the bottom two drawers of my dresser since DD2's dresser is still in my room because she sleeps with me. Bed space is a section of my king with the 4y on the other side but right next to the loft "princess" bed that she refuses to sleep in. The bouncy seat is currently on the dinning room table in an attempt to keep baby's eyeballs intact from the 2y. And that is about it. lol.gif

My 'changing area' is a travel roll up change pad that I stock daily with dipes & wipes, and leave at the foot of my bed for night (or anytime) diaper changes.

 

Cate is currently sleeping in a basinette that is wedged in between my closet door & the side of the bed, and when I want to put laundry away, I wait till she's soundly sleeping, and then lift the basket part out of the frame, put it in the middle of my bed, move the frame to block DH's closet and put away all my laundry before she wakes up!

 

Her nursery won't be finished until DH gets the basement finished, b/c the front upstairs room is currently our TV/family room, and will not be able to be switched over until I can get all the furniture to the basement!

Our bouncy seat is on the dining room table too! I hate having babies on the floor when everyone is standing around in the kitchen ... who wants to look at our feet?! Plus, the dog *loves* the baby, and doesn't always understand my house rule that any creature who licks it's bum is not allowed to lick anyone's face! Until Cate can say 'Off Penny' like the rest of us, she doesn't get left in licking range w/o one of us right there to tell the dog to go away!

I have wondered about this, trying to brainstorm where in the house I can put the damn bouncy seat where DS and the dog can't get at it...  Pretty much nowhere.  We don't have a dining room table right now (long story), Which means the only real up and out of the way place is the kitchen counters.  I'm afraid DS might try to pull it off of there with the baby in it though.

At our old church, in the nursery, we kept the exer-saucer, and the bouncy seat for littles, inside a super-yard thing, to keep the older tots away from the smallest ones. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2266978&fromWidget=TRU%3ACategory%3ATop+Sellers If you use just 4 panels, it makes a little square that quite nicely protects a little occupant from the tots & dogs & such! (alternately, the 4sided set up makes a lovely time-out zone when needed for the older one -- had to use that with a temper-tantruming daycare child once, to keep him & the others safe)

They can't hurt.  Rafe peed on my DH today at the doctor's office.  DH didn't have the angle of the dangle quite correct and paid for it Sheepish.gif.  Then I was changing him in the car on my lap (not moving of course) in the back seat and he managed to pee all over the car seat.  It just went up and over so fast, I didn't have time to get anything over it.
