Adopted Baby's Nursery
The adoption process has finally come to an end and you are about to bring home your new baby. You may be excited, nervous, and in disbelief that the moment has finally arrived. Some people elect to get the baby's nursery ready before you bring the child home. They feel they can then make sure that everything is neat, tidy and in its place.
Guidelines for a new nursery:
1. Dust: It's incredibly important that you clean every crack and crevice of your baby's new room so that it's entirely free from any dust. Your baby doesn't want to be in a dusty room, coughing and sneezing, while trying to get acquainted with his or her new environment.
2. Air Ducts: Make sure that all of your air ducts are free from any dust as well.
3. Paint: Paint the nursery awhile before your adopted baby is brought home. Doing so will help eliminate any paint fumes from affecting your baby.
4. Glass Cleaning: Be sure to clean all windows in the adopted baby's nursery so that they're free from any cobwebs or dust. This would be a good time to also make sure that the window is properly insulated so that there won't be any drafts entering the nursery.
5. Safety: Remove any potentially hazardous items from the nursery that your baby may try to reach or grab at. It may seem unlikely that anything would ever happen, but there's always a possibility. Eliminate any risk.
6. Nursery Furniture: Be sure to have all of your adopted baby's nursery furniture installed prior to his or her arrival. Doing so will prevent a lot of hassle on the day your baby is brought home.
7. Flooring: Make sure that the floor in your baby's new nursery is clean and free of any dust or allergens that may be trapped in the fibers.
As an adoptive parent, you are very anxious about bringing your new baby home. Just make sure that you don't overlook any obvious cleaning or maintenance that will need to be done before your new bundle of joy arrives.
