Speaker: Hi! We are here to talk about baby nursery essentials. Of course you want to have in that space the things that you are going to be needing on a regular basis for the care of your child. If it's a really young child you will have a crib no doubt and I had one of those wedges that you can lay the child on so that they don't roll on to their back in case of you know night time vomiting whatever so that they are safe at all times. You want to have change of sheets of course and the linens for your crib but when you are doing your changing table for example you want to have everything that you are going to need handy wash cloths, your powders, your creams, the diapers. A diaper pair is a good thing to have because you don't want to be hearing this around; you know leaving the child alone for more than an instant. So you want to really have everything that you are going to need for changing the child. You might want to have chest of drawers with clothes, I like to have a mobile hanging above the changing table so that the child is entertained while you are doing your changing and they aren't wiggling around and getting impatient. Its nice to have a monitor as well that way when you are in a different space of the house you can constantly keep a close watch on your child by hearing the sounds when they are awake, when they are sleeping, when they are crying, etcetera and perhaps you might want to have a hand sanitizer so that you don't have to always run to the bathroom after you have changed their diaper. That's probably about the most bare essentials anyway as everybody is different. So just whatever works for you, you have got to make your life as easy as possible because you are going to have a lot of long nights.
