Your little bidou is getting rounder every day, you start to prepare the cozy nest for your future baby.
His room, his personal space, his love nest... where he will be able to grow, marvel, play and have his first laughs.
But how to choose the right colour for the baby's room, what are the essential accessories to make baby feel at home, so that everything is to your liking and, above all, to ensure the health and safety of this still fragile newborn baby.
Good news! It is quite possible to keep a pretty decoration even with a baby!
But where to start? And then what do you need in the baby's room?
Let us tell you more about it!
Well first of all, you should know that despite his small size, baby will need space to wake up and some indispensable furniture.
Then of course, baby will need a nice crib, a cot and maybe even a cododo bed (see our full article on the practice of cododo). These pieces of furniture are quite imposing in a child's room, so be sure to choose them according to the universe you want to create. You can also opt for evolutionary beds that will follow your child for many years.
The second vital piece of furniture is the changing table. This is the piece of furniture on which your child will spend several hours of his or her life and on which you yourself will spend several hours of your life changing, nursing, tickling and chirping your child.
You'll need everything you need nearby to keep your eyes and hands on this little maggot. For this, we propose you the pretty Laurette changing table. A fine design with natural colors, practical and clever, you will have everything you need at hand!
Combined with the chiffonnier of the same brand, these two pretty pieces of furniture are perfect for a child's room. Thanks to their curves, they bring a bit of softness to this cocoon.
Softness thanks to an adorable mat for awakening
From his first months, baby can already discover the world around him on his play mat. To attract his full attention, prefer a mat with pretty patterns, which he will somehow try to catch. A cotton mat for its softness and certified Oeko-Tex for the non-toxicity of the fabric, because it is highly likely that he will drool on it... so also prefer a machine-washable mat.
To be put under a tepee, under a mobile phone or simply in the living room, mats are highly recommended to ensure the development of young children.

Vintage furniture, THE trend
They're everywhere, flea markets have never been so successful! Old furniture full of stories that take us back in time. The trend is to repaint them in light, even pastel colours for a modern touch. At a ridiculously low price, how not to miss out?
Yes, but vintage furniture is not necessarily the most practical when you have a baby in your arms... And yes, sometimes you need 2 or 3 arms to close that old drawer...
