Here are some simple tips on creating a safe, natural nursery:
- USE NON-TOXIC PAINTS – When it comes to paint always check with your local paint shop on the safes paint for baby. It also pays to paint the nursery well in advice of the arrival date of your little one.
- PLANTS – Put some plants in your nursery. Plants act as air purifiers and sweep toxins from the air, release oxygen, boost the rooms humidity and make your nursery look and feel great.
- UPCYCLE – Upcycling furniture has become super popular and is a great way to reuse and recycle that old chair or set of drawers from your spare room or mums place. Just remember if you are painting furniture to use non-toxic paint and paint well in advice.
- GO ORGANIC – Using an organic mattress made from 100% natural materials is one of the best options for your baby. While they are a little more expensive then traditional mattress, they are breathable, supportive and healthy for your baby. Organic mattresses are 100% safe, contain no toxic chemicals, electro magnetic stress or synthetic fibres. Top your organic mattress with a organic wool protector and organic bedding options.
- HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS – Aside from the fact they look stunning and let off just the right amount of light to nurse by, they have amazing health benefits for both you an baby. Himalayan salt is one of natures best natural negative ioniers. Negative ioniers are odourless, tasteless and invisible molecules that we inhale. Once in our bloodstream they are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase serotonia levels, helping to settle baby better, calm baby and induce a “positive vibe” to your nursery which is great for both you and bubs.
