Natural Nursery: Make Your Baby's Room Greener

If you're interested in making sure that you have a green home, your baby's nursery is one of the main areas you should focus on. Creating an eco-friendly nursery is good for the environment, and it also helps to keep the room healthy for your baby. 
You can use a few different tricks if you're thinking of ways to create a natural nursery. The way you decorate it, the things you choose to put in it and how you clean it can all make a difference to how green your nursery is. Take a look at these methods for making it more natural.

Use Paint with No VOCs

VOCs (volatile organic compounds) can be found in most house paints, as well as a variety of other materials. These chemicals can affect the air quality, and they're not particularly healthy, especially for a nursery. Fortunately, you can get paint that doesn't contain VOCs or only has a very low level of them. It's important to be careful when you paint a nursery, anyway. You should always make sure that the room is well ventilated and has plenty of time to air out before your baby starts sleeping in there.


Choose Toys Made with Natural Materials

As well as practical items, you probably want to fill the nursery with toys. It's hard sometimes to keep the volume of toys under control, but sticking to natural and eco-friendly ones can help. 
If you want toys that are healthy and greener than those made from plastic, there are plenty of baby toys made from wood and other organic materials, such as cotton. Of course, you also need to make sure that any toys you choose are safe too. That means checking for any small pieces that could come off or anything that could cause injury.

Pick Organic Bedding

The bedding in your baby's bed is another thing to consider too. You have to put some thought into how safe it is in other ways, so it's a good idea to think about how natural it is at the same time. Choosing organic bedding will ensure you have eco-friendly, soft and natural materials. You can often make sure that it's fair trade too, especially if you choose to buy organic cotton. There are still plenty of cute options for colours, patterns and styles if you choose organic bedding for your baby's nursery, and it's not hard to find.

Use Green Cleaners

You also need to think about how to keep your nursery clean. It's understandable if you want to choose gentle and natural cleaners for this room in particular. But you also want to keep everything clean to help your baby stay healthy. Fortunately, there are more natural cleaning products that will help you clean your baby's room and are also non-toxic and good for the environment. It's also good to keep in mind that you don't want to clean obsessively - babies need to be exposed to some germs to help their immune system.

Make your nursery more natural by carefully choosing the things you choose to go in it, as well as how you clean it.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
