Baby furniture shopping tipsOne of the most exciting parts about becoming parents is decorating the nursery. There are few things that are more enjoyable than browsing websites, catalogs and shops in search for the perfect armoire, dresser and crib. However, as fun as this experience is, mom and dads-to-be always want to know when should they begin the furniture-buying process. Of course, every couple is different so it is completely up to you whether you want to listen to our recommendation.
At Kid's Stuff Superstore, the last thing we want is for you to be stressed. That's why we advise expectant parents to at least start thinking about what items they want to buy midway through the second trimester of pregnancy. It's always a good idea to start with the essentials. Sure, you're dying for those hand-painted decorative knobs, but it's probably best you don't spend money on these until you've bought the all-important crib. Although you may be tempted to buy a crib used because it's cheaper, you should steer clear of doing so. When you buy a crib that is new, you can rest assured that it complies with the latest ASTM safety regulations.
When going on shopping sprees for your bun in-the-oven, you should also look for pieces that you'll get use out of for years to come. After all, what good is a dresser if its only big enough to hold a few onesies and store some diapers? You may be hesitant to spend more at the beginning, but remember that this is a worthwhile investment and years from now, you'll thank yourself for paying a bit more.
