- Shopping for Baby when money is no object. Although many of us try to be economical when it comes to decorating for Baby, many people can afford the fancy baby furnishings that are exploding onto the market. A spokesperson for Anichini, the Vermont-based luxury linen maker, says the baby business "has turned into a huge market just in the past year."
Heidi Murkoff, co-author of What to Expect the First Year, makes a very important point when it comes to decorating for Baby. She says, "I don't want to spoil the fun, but it's important to keep your perspective about what the baby really needs, and that's time and attention from a loving parent." So, when choosing your furnishings for your little one's nursery, make sure that there is room for an adult-sized seat, whether it is a luxurious, overstuffed chair, or a recycled wicker rocker. As long as there's a place that makes it conducive for Mom or Dad to cuddle, read to, and spend time with the new baby, you have everything you need to bring up a happy, well-adjusted, and loved new addition to your family.
