Where will your baby sleep?
The first thing you must decide is where your child will sleep. The first months the normal thing is that you put the cradle in your room, in order to facilitate the nocturnal shots and to have him close when he cries. But as he grows older - and even more so when the time comes to change him to a bed - he will need his own space.
As it is currently the subject of mortgages, it is likely that you only have two rooms in your house, one for you and one for the child, so there will not be much to think about.
But if you are lucky and have three or more bedrooms, you should decide which is the best for your child. You have to take into account several things:
- Space - All children need a lot of space to play and store their things. If your room is large, you can spend a lot of time in it, do your homework, have fun ... In addition, you have to think about the possibility of having more children. Do you want me to share the room with your future brother or do you prefer that everyone has their room?
- The situation - While the child is small - up to 6 years old or so - it will be very convenient for your bedroom to be close by so you can hear him if he cries or if he is sick. It is also important that it is not a very noisy room.
- Light - A room as bright as possible is essential. In addition, the more light you give, the more sun, so it will be warmer in winter.
