Mum-to-be Diary: A big arrival (not Baby but a beautiful Baby Elegance Cot!)
Week 32 and counting
Oh wow! How time flies. I have noticed that I keep saying that recently and perhaps it is even more noticeable when you have a big date pencilled in your diary! Recently there was a new arrival that made everything sink in. It wasn’t Baby – Baby is still growing at a rapid rate and all snug on the inside. Rather, it was the beautiful new cot from Baby Elegance that I have chosen to be the centrepiece of our nursery.
I always marked Easter in the calendar as the best time for my husband and I to organise the practical things for Baby’s entrance into the world, but I am already running slightly behind. As you progress through pregnancy, time seems to speed up! Until now, I was delaying organising the nursery room because I wanted to wait until the latter stages of pregnancy before making the final interior changes. With only a few weeks left to go, I now need to get organised as a matter of urgency and make sure that we have everything in place.
The arrival of the cot was a big moment. This is when everything became very real and it transformed our normal-looking spare room in to a proper nursery. I had already made some small changes to the décor but it still seemed a long way off a ‘baby room’. I had altered some of the decoration in the room by using stencil artwork to give it a special touch, but until the cot arrived, the room seemed rather empty.
That all changed thanks to the arrival of the beautiful Baby Elegance cot, which makes a welcome statement and really brings the room to life. The cot is utterly beautiful. Made from solid wood and boasting intricate white railings, it is substantial in size, yet also manages to look incredibly graceful. It is available in three colours but I have opted to follow a white theme throughout, although the antique pine version is also very pleasing to the eye. Some people choose to go for pink and blue decor in a nursery but I feel that using white as a base colour allows for versatility and it also seems to look more sophisticated than some of the gender-biased items that are available on the market.
One of the main reasons that I chose the cot from Baby Elegance was that it suits babies and children at various stages. You can change the height of the base platform as your baby becomes bigger and it also transforms in to a junior bed. This means that you don’t have to worry about sleeping arrangements for a good few years to come. The cot is delivered in a ‘flat-pack’ form but it is very easy to put together.
Another bonus of ordering a cot from the Baby Elegance range is that they also have a number of bedding options available, which means that you can organise everything to arrive at the same time and effectively have an all-in-one solution when looking for your cot. Among the bedding options is the Anti-Allergy Fibre Mattress, which is guaranteed to provide a safe environment for your new-born.
If you have become a bit of a scatter brain during pregnancy (like me at times), then having a full product range arrive in one go for a specific need helps relieve some of the stress involved with making sure that you have ticked every box when it comes to the long list of items that you need.
A cot is obviously pretty essential and something that you will likely want to prioritise. If you are looking for a beautiful, spacious and safe cot for your new arrival, Baby Elegance has a wonderful range and the service with this company is also excellent. While I went for the chic white version, I have added in some extra colour and playful touches already thanks to a bunny rabbit themed mobile and hand sewn quilt. Hopefully, Baby will approve.
Until next time,
