Thank you to these shops for collaborating with me on this charity nursery and gifting items. Thank you to Delta Children and DaVinci Baby for sponsoring this post. As always all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
My girlfriend and neighbor Anita woke up in the night with pains and weird feelings in her legs. Her husband rushed her to the hospital and the next day she was paralyzed from her navel down. With lots of testing they diagnosed her with a form of MS called transverse myelitis. When I heard all of this I could hardly wrap my head around it. She was pregnant with her first baby and now also paralyzed.
I immediately reached out with potential nursery decor ideas and started planning to decorate her nursery. I wanted to help her have a beautiful nursery for her baby boy. Every mother deserves that and I knew a lot of money would be going toward her hospital bills, her therapy and further testing.
Currently Anita is doing well, they are now thinking it can’t be the MS they originally thought since she had multiple episodes. (The paralysis came on multiple times, yet she never really improved in mobility.) So the testing continues! Baby Van was born a month early and stayed in the NICU for the first month of his life. They are both home now, which makes my heart happy.
So here it is, the nursery reveal!
I love the way the room came together and using the simple gray crib from Delta Children helped keep the vintage/rustic look we were aiming for. This crib is great because it later turns into a toddler bed. We loved having this feature on Izzy’s crib as well. If you are a new parent consider that when looking for a crib. The crib is sturdy, quality and fits standard crib mattresses. I love this style because it’s simple and easily shows off the crib skirt and bedding. It was also super easy to add the mobile to it!
A little about this BabySense monitor, because it’s more than just a sound and video monitor. This device collects movement and activity. It gives concerned parents (all of us) the ultimate peace of mind. The monitor offers movement sensor pads which track baby’s movement. If no movement is detected after 20 seconds you will be alerted. This monitor is ideal for a newborn infant or a young baby who is starting to reach and explore. Once you hit the early toddler years you can remove the sensors.
I filled the basket above the changing area with Bambo Nature diapers because they are the diapers we use and trust. Being an influencer I was lucky enough to try a pack out and quickly became a huge fan of how soft they are. They also hold in blow outs better than any diaper we have tried. If that’s not a parent win, I don’t know what is. I wanted baby Van to start off, with in my option, the BEST diapers. Now we are brand ambassadors for Bambo Nature and loving the training pants as Izzy continues to work towards being fully potty trained.
When I picked this dressed I knew I didn’t want a matchy matchy look. This rustic gray wash dresser from DaVinchi Baby was a perfect fit with the gray crib from Delta Children. You can take the top piece off once the baby no long needs a changing area and use the area as a typical dresser top.
These decals were so easy to put on the wall and they seriously finished up that big empty wall! This is the only decal shop I could find that had these adorable vintage planes!
I wanted to bring some mature pieces into this nursery, which is why I chose this blanket. It’s soft, quality and a great throw for any room.
You guys know we a Dock A Tot obsessed! The smaller size is great for tiny babes to have a place to lay around the house.
The most gorgeous custom wooden toys! Izzy has the same puzzle and we LOVE it!
Izzy had a skip hop play yard that In swear she LIVED on for the early months when she was working on reaching and holding her head up. It’s super easy to unsnap and throw in the washer too. #momwin
These pjs are the bomb! They zip in-between the legs for an easy night time diaper change!
Hands down the most comfortable carrier I have held Izzy in! I’ve tried many brands and Lille Baby is by far my fav!
I hope you loved looking at the nursery and all the little pieces that brought it all together. If you are looking to decorate a boys nursery I hope I inspired you!
