Designing a nursery involves planning for the things you and your baby will do there, choosing the furniture you'll need, and selecting a theme and color palette. One of the most important things to remember is that while it needs to be safe and stimulating for your baby, it also needs to be comfortable and welcoming to you. You'll need to make sure that it's easy and convenient for you to meet your growing baby's many needs: changing diapers, feeding, rocking, encouraging tummy time. Give yourself time to think through what you need and want in your nursery. Your second trimester is the perfect time to gather inspirational images and begin planning.
