Modern Nursery Design (for parents on a budget):


1. White Gulliver Crib, Ikea-

This simple streamlined elegant crib is perfect for any newborn nursery. While it’s tempting to splurge on the crib of your dreams….you’re better off allocating those funds elsewhere because there’s a good chance your little one will be rooming with you for the first 6 months, especially if you’re nursing.

2. Little Zip Pocket Blanket- Faux Fur 

Blankets add a touch of class and coziness to any nursery. We’re a big fan of faux fur, because it’s super snuggly and doubles as a beautiful photo backdrop for those those monthly pictures. This Snow Leopard faux Fur is simply beautiful and the underside of the blanket is backed with organic cotton, bonus!

3. Polka Dot Wall decals-

Want to create a gender neutral nursery for your newborn? No problem. Paint the walls white, robin egg blue, any other gender neutral color and give the room a pop of personality with these amazingly affordable wall decals. They’re easy to apply and remove, which means it’s easy to change when your kiddo outgrows it! I love these half chevron wall decals!

4. Ikea Cube Organizer

This cube organizer is very stable and the perfect height for a changing pad, plus, I love the bin storage underneath for storing diapers, wipes, etc. You can also purchase stainless feet for this organizer if you need extra height. The Wiggle Free Poopoose Changing Pad can be secured to the organizer or wall to keep your kiddo secure.

This comfy chair is perfect for any nursing mother, it’s comfortable, stylish, and the wide seat will allow you to relax and position your baby comfortably for feedings.

breastfeeding shirt clip

Like many moms before her, Melissa cradled her hungry, crying baby as she clumsily adjusted her bra and sat uncomfortably holding up her shirt. She needed a better solution, so she created LatchPal, the first nursing clip of its kind.

LatchPal is a breastfeeding shirt clip that holds up a mother’s shirt during breastfeeding. It eliminates shirt re-positioning and feeding disruptions. LatchPal was designed with moms in mind. The multi-use solution only requires one hand to latch. It’s a must-have breastfeeding accessory and essential for post-partum moms, pumping moms, and nursing in public.
