Want A Baby That Sleeps? The Nursery Decor Is More Important Than You Think

When you first got pregnant, how long did it take before you started visualizing what your baby’s nursery was going to look like?

Go ahead. I won’t judge.

Because I usually it is one of the first things most of my pregnant friends and clients do, honestly.
Zoo animals, pooh Bear, cute butterflies, Calvin and Hobbes and do many other ideas my clients have when they come to me asking for advice about how the perfect nursery should be? As a Sleep expert my clients ask me this often because they want to make sure that their nursery will be a good sleep place above everything else.

I confess they get a little disappointed when I tell them to paint it a nice, neutral earth-tone and spent the rest of their times researching crib mattresses and sleep sacks.

When it comes to nurseries I’ve got four words of advice for you.

Dark, cool, comfortable, and boring.

I know how tempting it is to stuff baby’s sleeping quarters full of adorable mobiles, inspiring images, and fluffy, squishy toys. After all, wouldn’t baby want to be surrounded by a sea of cuteness while they drift off to sleep?
Well, probably not.

I mean, they may like it in theory, but it’s not conducive to a good night’s sleep, for the same reasons that you shouldn’t bring your iPad to bed, or watch TV while you’re drifting off. It’s stimulating, and stimulation and sleep are best kept at a distance from one another.

So what does the perfect nursery look like?

It’s dark

I’m talking pitch black. Some blackout curtains or blinds are a much better investment than a colorful mural. I’m a huge advocate of baby sleeping in the same place all the time, which means naps should be in the crib. And you’ll find naps go down with a lot less fuss if there’s no light coming into the room.

It’s cool

It may sound cold, but studies show that babies sleep best in a room that kept between 65 and 70 degrees. Obviously, you should follow your baby’s lead on this, but a warm, comfortable sleep sack or onesie in a cool room will often lead to better sleep than no cover in a warm one.

It’s comfortable

Babies sleep for nearly half the day, so a great mattress is a sound investment. It’s well worth your time to do some extensive research and spend the money you had set aside for mobiles and stuffies on the surface baby’s going to be spending the vast majority of their time on. Which brings me to my major point…

It’s boring

Music and soft light, pictures of Disney characters, swirling colors and little plastic fish, all of them seem like they should have a calming effect on a baby, but it’s just the opposite. These standard nursery accompaniments are distracting and stimulating. Blank walls and an easily accessible changing station, those are your best decorating choices when it comes to baby’s bedroom.

I know it’s probably a little bit of a tough pill to swallow for new parents, because we really do look forward to putting together a little corner of baby-themed paradise for our little ones. But bear in mind, this room serves a crucial function in your baby’s day-to-day life, and that’s to be a quiet, relaxing environment for them to get the extensive amounts of sleep that their
growing bodies need. You may have a boring baby room but you also will have a baby that seeps well and I promise you, it is worth it.
