Decorating babies nursery

So you all know our first pregnancy we had twins, and I am such an impatient person I couldn’t wait to find out what we were having so I could prepare their room and buy their clothes.  We had a boy and a girl.  Because they were sharing a room together we made it gender neutral.  We white washed the pine cots and change table and I cross stitched some Winnie the Pooh pictures for their wall. It was quite basic (no lavish lamps, chairs, shelves, matching quilts etc), but we were moving into a rental within the following year while we were building the home we live in now.

It wasn’t until baby number three (a girl) that I could really decorate a beautiful nursery.  She used the same furniture we had from the twins, I put the change table in the toy room as I had 3 kids 2 and under they all were in nappies.  I found a gorgeous set from Kidsline (Gossimer Wings) to decorate her room, a lamp for soft lighting at night, matching picture frame which we put a photo of her siblings in and then had fabric pictures on the wall.

Why I didn’t buy matching quilt set

We didn’t purchase the matching quilt….as cute as it was we would never use it.  As we live in QLD a fitted sheet over the mattress was enough during summer and at night they had their jumpsuit and were wrapped in a baby wrap, my favourite was the muslin as they were nice and light.  When winter came I tried the sheet and blanket, however babies move and turn so much it was pointless and the long sleeve fleece sleeping bags were fabulous.  I purchased mine back then from Best & Less.
