If you have the space it is a good idea to have a comfy chair in the nursery. We used ours most nights once our daughter had moved into her own room for night time bottle feeds.
Never underestimate just how many clothes you will acquire for your baby, especially in the first year when not only you are buying baby clothes, but all your relatives, friends workmates, neighbours etc. So a wardrobe is good idea to store all those clothes and blankets.
DAD TIP: Don’t bother buying clothes hangers, most of the baby clothes you buy will come with hangers, we bought hangers and now we have a big carrier bag full of spare hangers!
It is a good idea to have a bin for all your nappies. You can wrap your dirty nappies in plastic ‘nappy bags’ and throw into a normal bin. Or you can buy a special nappy bin that has an integral system that seals the nappies in plastic automatically. The second system is a lot more convenient but bear in mind that you need to replace the ‘plastic bag cartridge’ every so often which normally costs in region of £5, whereas you can buy a bag of 100 ‘nappy bags’ for about 50 pence.
