The Best Features of a Changing Table

The Best Features of a Changing Table

The arrival of a baby requires many purchases—not the least of which is a changing table! Your new baby is going to go through a lot of diapers, and having the right handmade furniture piece for the task can prevent this chore from becoming a safety hazard. But which features should you look for when shopping for handcrafted changing tables? These elements should play an important role in your decision: Sturdiness — You don’t want to try changing your baby’s clothes on a wobbly table. Our handcrafted changing tables are made from solid wood, eliminating this common worry. The Right Height — No parent wants to bend over at an uncomfortable angle to change their child’s diaper. Make sure your handmade furniture piece has a table height that will be comfortable for you to work with. Don’t be afraid to test out different heights before you buy! Storage — Having clean diapers, baby powder, and other items easily available can help the changing process go much quicker and easier. Choose handcrafted changing tables that offer a storage area where you can get these items without leaving your child unsupervised. When combined with a quality changing pad, these features will ensure your baby’s safety—and your peace of mind. Versatility-  Many of the changing table we sell convertible and can be flipped to be used as a dresser after you no longer have use for the changing table!

Nursery Checklist!

Nursery Checklist!

Are you ready for a new baby? Shopping for handmade furniture and other baby products can be somewhat stressful, but when you know what your nursery needs, this process won’t be hard at all. Get ready for baby by purchasing the following items for your nursery: Crib — Cribs are the most basic accessory for any nursery. After all, your child needs a place to sleep! Only consider cribs that adhere to federal safety standards, such as having all slats less than 2 & 3/8 inches apart and a top rail that is 26 inches or higher above the mattress. The mattress itself should fit tightly and only use fitted sheets.  Changing Table — Handcrafted changing tables are another must-have for your nursery. Choose a sturdy handmade furniture piece that will be comfortable to work with while also providing adequate storage space. It will be much easier to change your baby’s diaper when everything you need is stored conveniently nearby. Baby Monitor — A baby monitor is the easiest way to check in on your child during the night. Modern video monitors give you a complete picture of what is going on so you know when your child needs help. Rocking Chair — Rockers and gliders are the perfect seating solution for feeding or calming your baby. The gentle motion has a soothing effect on your child, while also helping you stay comfortable as you care for your...
Keep Yourself Organized After Baby Arrives

Keep Yourself Organized After Baby Arrives

The arrival of a baby changes everything—are you ready? It can be hard to stay organized after baby arrives, especially with the seemingly endless amounts of diapers, clothes, and other supplies that come along with your newborn. But with the right planning (and the help of the right wood furniture), you can keep organized. Making sure you have adequate storage space for your baby supplies is one of the best things you can do before your child is born. For example, handcrafted changing tables with storage drawers can serve as the perfect solution for keeping diapers, lotions, and medicines organized. A toy box or a handmade bookcase will keep favorite playtime items off the floor. Getting the right nursery furniture really can make a big difference. In addition to getting the right wood furniture for your home, learning proper planning and time management skills is crucial. You may want to do nothing more than watch TV after putting baby to bed, but you should use this time to plan for the next day’s activities. This allows you to prioritize what things need to get done (either by yourself or with someone else’s help). This is also a good time to take care of household chores. With the right organizational tools and habits on your side, you’ll be able to stay in control during this time of...
