YOU’RE pregnant and excited to bring new life into the world, but along with this special and wonderful blessing, you need to consider planning for your little one’s arrival.

There are a number of important questions that you need to ask yourself so you can figure out what baby furniture you’ll need.

Dream Furniture shares some helpful tips.

What colour and style of décor should I choose for my baby?

The style and colour should suit the baby who will call the room “home”, which is why the gender of the baby can be important, unless you choose not to find out until the delivery.

While the gender will only be known at a later stage in the pregnancy, parents can discuss and decide on what baby furniture options they will go for, depending on gender.

They can also settle on a neutral theme and colour to suit either a boy or a baby girl.

What baby furniture will I need?

There is need and there is want. First, it is important to make sure that all of the important elements are planned for and considered, at which point additional nice-to-haves can be added to the baby nursery plan.

When shopping for baby furniture, look for cot beds that convert to toddler or full-size beds that will grow with your baby as they transition to the next stage.

When should I order the baby

The earlier this is done, the better, so that mums are able to be actively involved in picking out and putting together the room while they still have energy and before they become too uncomfortable to do so.

Remember, if you decide to go with quality furniture and décor, there will be an order time which is usually up to eight weeks, so it is best to ensure your nursery planning is achieved by month five of your pregnancy.

This will ensure that your nursery is complete by month eight and the final month is stress-free and relaxed, so you can focus on meeting your precious bundle of joy. - Supplied.
