Having your second child is a wildly different experience than your first. Especially when you’re pregnant while your first is still very much a baby. I struggled my entire pregnancy with Lilliana with the fact that we did not have the space to give her a room of her own in our current home. I felt guilty because I put so much time and love into Addilyn’s nursery, and I wanted so badly to do that for my sweet Lillie.
But the reality of our situation was that for the foreseeable future, she was going to be living in our room with us. Thankfully, our master bedroom is very large, and we were able to allocate her a special corner.
A few weeks before her arrival, we put together a mini nursery and I have been SO happy with the way that it came out! It is very simple, but it is just what we needed.
The potted plants were already hanging in that part of our room, with a cozy reading corner. I swapped out a frame with her name sign (you can grab one here!) to personalize the area a bit.
The nightstand is the perfect spot for the baby “necessities” in a neat little basket. To be honest, I do most of my diaper changing right there on the bed. I wasn’t too keen on the idea of moving our TV to put a changing pad on my dresser, and it works for us! The name of the game here is to keep it simple and efficient!
That’s really all there is to it! If you live in a small space, or don’t have room for a true nursery like us, don’t fret over it! You can get creative and still create a lovely space for your baby to grow and thrive. We are so happy with the way this shared space came out and the three of us truly enjoy relaxing in there!
(And that big king sized bed is the perfect spot for family cuddles when big sissy is up!)
