If you have a baby on the way, it might be time to start preparing his or her space — and a gender-neutral nursery theme makes perfect sense if you don’t know whether it’s a boy or a girl. Even if you do know the gender, there are plenty of benefits to a gender-neutral nursery theme. For one thing, if you plan on having more kids in the future, there’s no need for major nursery redecorating. Gender-neutral nurseries also give you more options and flexibility.
For a gender-neutral nursery, Winnie the Pooh is the perfect theme. Who can resist that silly ol’ bear? Here are three simple ways Winnie the Pooh décor items can give Baby’s room just the right amount of charm, nostalgia, and warmth.
Use a Plush Blanket for a Cozy Corner
Every new parent needs a comfy chair for those long nights of midnight feedings and rocking baby to sleep. A soft plush blanket is a wonderful way to cozy up and snuggle with your little one, and could even become your baby’s first security blanket. Even if Pooh Bear makes no other appearance in Baby’s nursery, a Winnie the Pooh plush blanket can be the perfect finishing touch.
Dress Up the Walls with Cute Shelving
Wall shelves pull double duty when it comes to nursery decoration: They give you a place to add another splash of color and can serve as functional storage, too. You might even use a wall shelf to put up an old cuddly Pooh Bear of your own from when you were little, that Baby can play with when he or she is a little older.
Add Some Whimsy with Magical Extras
Mobiles are fantastic way to really add some whimsy and creativity to your nursery. A Winnie the Pooh mobile introduces your baby to the magic of Pooh and all his friends — and can even help soothe baby to sleep with gentle lullabies.
It’s so exciting to decorate your baby’s first nursery, whether you’re having a boy, a girl, or even both! Bringing Baby home to a beautifully decorated nursery is even more exciting, especially when you add in just a few thoughtful touches of Winnie the Pooh magic.
