Baby changing and nursing corner
How did we arrange the changing and care corner for our second son? What could not be missing in it, and what did we give up?
You can see Mikołajka's caring corner, which I arranged over three years ago here.
It consisted of two basic elements: a high dresser for clothes and a changing table with two shelves underneath. Why didn't I use the same elements again?
I consider a separate, designated scrolling place a bull's-eye. For me it is extraordinary comfort to be able to swaddle the Baby at the right height, in the company of all necessary accessories, having diapers, swabs or clothes always at my fingertips, which is why I knew that I would want to repeat this solution with the next Child.
I also knew that a separate changing table with shelves is not quite what has worked out perfectly with us. Why? The exposed shelves for storage were so high and deep that I found it impractical, because no matter how I put supplies or toys on them, it always felt like a mess. It did not help to organize myself in white cardboard boxes specially bought for this purpose, as using them was very inconvenient for me. In practice, a chest of drawers and a changing table with ... empty shelves stood next to each other, taking up quite a large area.
This time nursing corner, i.e. a corner for changing and storing clothes, I decided to arrange it in our bedroom, and not in a separate child's room, and therefore the space they were to occupy, I wanted to minimize. Because I put on a chest of drawers with a changing pad and in this way I replaced two furniture - one.
Care corner I arranged it to fit our white and gray bedroom, after all, is its integral part. So I wanted it to be an extension of it, and also that the chest of drawers should come from the collection of children's furniture, so that in the future I could choose a matching wardrobe and cot and decorate the children's room.
About how I organized the whole dresser, a drawer by drawer will be created a separate post, but I will tell you immediately that I was unnecessarily afraid that I would not fit in it - experience after the first child allowed me limit the number of clothes so that they all fit in one drawer nowand we wash once, maximum twice a week.
I love solutions that will not only work for many years (I will be able to remove the scroll cover and the dresser will be left alone), but above all they are practical and make life easier.
This is because in basket, next to the changing table, I hid stock of organic diapers, swabs and clean water in the bottle, and coconut oil in a jar - my favorite changing kit. I must put on the changing table by the wall rolled up diaper - my little one loves to push off with his feet up. The observers will see that it is hanging behind the curtain gray organizer for extra trinkets, we are still empty.
I put an extra on the windowsill organizer. On the one hand, I keep all of them care accessories: hairbrush, comb, scissors, thermometers and cosmetics.
The other - nappies and wet wipes, but not chemical, only 99,9% soaked with water and 0,1% with fruit extract - thanks to this, when I want to change my baby's nappy in a different place in the house or in the garden, all I need to do is take this organizer with me and I have everything at hand.
I hung over the dresser elk head i shelveson which someday photo frames or other decorations will stand. On the right side of the dresser I hang bath towel.
And since the scrolling, there could be a special one a nappy basket, which stands on the left side of the dresser and which you can read my review here.
And how do you like our baby care corner?
And that's not all, because next to I created a comfortable corner for breastfeeding or a bottle, you will see it here.
