Creating a calming environment can be paramount for your newborn's nursery. Splashes of bright colour can be added with accessories, toys and blankets, which allows you to control the stimulus in the environment at bedtime.
Every new parent seeks serenity and calm. What better place to create that atmosphere than your newborn's nursery, where he will be resting and developing his sleep routine.
