A place to sleep baby
After sleeping nine months warm in the belly of his mom, loulou will now need a bed where to sleep and take a nap … So, cradle or bed with bars? Ideal for the first three months, the cradle is a particularly cute accessory, but it is so short-lived that it is often better to immediately invest in a crib. Simple or progressive, the ideal is to choose solid wood and covered with water paint to prevent it releases too many pollutants …
But the crib is not an obligation either! The Montessori method prefers a simple mattress on the floor, other moms opt for a bed co-dodo in their room and the first weeks a simple bassinet is very good!

Soft toys in the baby room
