Nursing Box Ideas To Keep Your Toddler Entertained

Preparing to bring a new arrival home from hospital is an important task and one area I have been thinking about is something that will help to make Jake feel included and entertained whilst I am nursing his baby brother; a nursing box. This will be a special box that he can go to at anytime for when he is feeling bored or possibly left out and will keep him happily occupied whilst I am otherwise engaged. I know he will have a good understanding at his age but it will all still be very strange and new to him and as he has been the only child for 4 years I want him to feel as though his needs are also being thought about.

Nursery Makeover: Upcycling Pine Furniture

So, baby number 2 will be here in January and I just know these last few months will fly by what with lots of birthdays, Christmas, Jake turning 4 all to come in between and as I am usually a super organised person (Jake’s room was completed as soon as we found out we were having a boy) so I am slacking a little here with the new nursery but I have plenty of ideas. Trying to find the time being a Mum of one, working from home and having the usual housework to do has been a tough task but I can very happily report that I have now made a start on project nursery!
