Now that I’m getting closer to the due date (11 weeks left!!!), my husband and I are trying to decide on how we want to decorate our baby’s room. We want to go with simple and clean look with a color theme of white, gray, and baby blue.
We looked at so many different cribs and finally decided that we like Babyletto cribs the best. Their cribs are not as pricey as Pottery Barn’s but definitely as pretty and durable in my opinion. Babyletto cribs are also Greenguard GOLD certified, lead/phthalate safe, non-toxic, and meets ASTM International and US CPSC safety standards.
As for the baby dresser/changing table, I think we might go with what we already have and just purchase the changing tray for the top. I need to find out the height measurement of the dresser so that it’s not too low.
I still need to do more research on mattress, changing pad, etc. My head is spinning already.
On a good note, we finally purchased stroller/car seat and bassinet/playard. We went with Chicco for both as we really liked the material. The stroller is amazing as it folds/unfolds so easily! It doesn’t ride as smooth as City Mini GT without the rubber wheels… but if it gets any worse, we will change it to one of those really light umbrella strollers by Baby Jogger (probably City Tour but possibly Vue Lite). Finally, here is the playard we got. It’s the new Lullaby Glow version and we love how we can use the mobile as a nightlight later on. It also comes with a napper, bassinet, and changer and I love things that can be used for multipurpose. I know we could’ve bought the Graco playard for a better price but when we looked at the material at BuyBuyBaby, we noticed a huge quality difference (purely our opinion). But of course, we can’t review the actual gear as we have never used the playard before with a baby. Once the baby arrives, I will make sure to review all the gears and items again!
I don’t have any related pictures for today’s post because we haven’t opened the boxes yet. But here are some cute baby outfits pictures:
I can’t wait to see him in these outfits 🙂
Also, today is our 6 year wedding anniversary! Time goes by way too fast. In celebration of our marriage, here are some pictures from our maternity photo shoot. Enjoy! 🙂
