You’re expecting a little one! Congrats! With their arrival just a few months away, you’ll be busy preparing and decorating the nursery to welcome your baby. If you’re brainstorming nursery themes, you’re in the right place!

At Newton Baby, we think designing and decorating the nursery is not only a really fun part of expecting a new baby but also very important.

In this article, we’ll talk first about safety and how to set up and decorate the nursery so that it’s a secure place for your baby. Then we’ll give you 17 ideas for adorable nursery themes to get your wheels turning!
As a new parent, you want to know that your baby is safe and sound all night long! If your little one has been sleeping in a cradle or bassinet next to your bed, sooner or later you’ll ask yourself when you should stop sharing a room with your baby.

Most parents share their room with their infant for the first few months because it’s both safe and convenient. But at some point, your little one will move out of your room and graduate to their own crib.

When should that happen? And what are the factors that go into making that decision? Newton Baby's experts are here to help you answer those important questions!
Ask 10 parents about nursery organization and you’ll probably get 10 different answers! That’s because choosing furniture and arranging your baby’s room is a personal decision that depends on how much you use the nursery throughout the day.

The first few months of your baby’s life come with so many transitions for your little one and for you as a parent! One of the big changes — learning how to transition your baby to a crib — comes when your little one outgrows their bassinet.

If making this change feels overwhelming to you, you’re not alone. Lots of parents stress over the move!

That’s why we’ve created a list of tips for how to transition your baby to the nursery and their crib. But first, let’s go over a few guidelines for when this transition should happen.
Learning how to get your baby to sleep in their crib is a tough transition for most parents. You and your little one may be used to sleeping together. Or your newborn may prefer sleeping in a swing or a car seat.

When they’re in those familiar environments, they fall asleep quickly and without fuss. But these are not long-term solutions for a safe, successful newborn sleep schedule. Eventually, it’s best for everyone involved if your baby sleeps in their crib.

In this article, we give you six tips about how to get your baby to sleep in a crib so you and your family can rest easy again.
Nothing compares to late-night snuggles with your little one. But when you’re denied a good night’s sleep over and over again, you start to feel the effects. You may begin desperately wondering how to get your baby to sleep through the night!

Maybe you’re dreaming about the day when your baby sleeps all night long so you can actually sleep all night long. But how exactly do you accomplish this gargantuan task?

In this article, our experts at Newton Baby offer a few tips for parents to help this dream become a reality!

Whether you’re thinking about adding another little one to your family or you’ve already received the good news, congratulations! Anticipating baby number 2 is exciting.

However, growing your family can also feel overwhelming. There’s a lot to think about and prepare for!

With your baby due soon, you’ve probably got your eye on baby crib sets so that your little one can sleep safe and sound when you bring them home! But what should you look for when furnishing your little one’s nursery?

In this article, Newton Baby tells you everything you need to know about shopping for baby crib sets.

During pregnancy, your body goes through tons of changes! There are the obvious physical changes, but you might also notice changes in your memory or thinking and start to observe what many women call “pregnancy brain.”

But what exactly is “pregnancy brain?” And is it fact or fiction? Is it a real part of pregnancy or just a good excuse for when you can’t find your phone?

We’re here to answer those questions! 

Once you get toward the end of your nine months of pregnancy, you might find yourself constantly in the mood to organize, clean, and arrange the nursery. This is what many people call nesting, and it’s quite common!

Some people think nesting is a built-in maternal instinct while others aren’t so sure. Either way, many pregnant moms turn into busy bees in the last trimester of pregnancy.

If this is you and you’re wondering what exactly nesting is and how to use that urge to your advantage, you’re in the right place.
With delivery day getting closer, you’re busy putting the final touches on the nursery and preparing to meet your little one! One of the things you’ll want to do toward the end of your third trimester is get your hospital bag ready to go. A hospital bag checklist can help!

Here at Newton Baby, we’ve created an extensive list to give you an idea of the things you’ll need. It includes the must-have as well as a few items that might not have occurred to you but will make your hospital stay more comfortable for everyone involved.
There’s a lot to think about when preparing to welcome a new baby into your family! One of the biggest decisions is deciding where your little one will sleep. Whether you choose a baby cradle, crib, or bassinet, safety is your top priority.

If you’re opting for a cradle, you’re in the right place!

In this article, we’ll go over what to look for when it comes to choosing the safest cradle. Here at Newton Baby, we’re passionate about sleep safety for your precious bundle of joy!

What your baby sleeps on matters just as much as what they sleep in. If your baby sleeps in a bassinet, it’s important to choose a bassinet mattress that benefits and supports them. But knowing what to look for can be challenging. 

That’s why we’ve created this buyer’s guide for purchasing a bassinet mattress. In this article, we offer four tips for choosing the right mattress to keep your baby safe and comfortable while they’re sleeping!

One of your first orders of business when becoming a parent is setting up your little one’s nursery. And part of that experience is buying baby furniture. 

It’s hard to narrow down what you really need for your baby’s nursery, so take a look at Newton Baby’s tips on how to make the best buying decisions for your family!

  You know you’re a parent when you start thinking (or worrying) about how daylight-saving time (DST) on Sunday, March 8th is going to interfere with your baby or toddler’s sleep. Fear not! With a solid plan, you can sail through DST with minimal disruption to your child’s sleep.   Daylight Savings Time Starts on Sunday, March 8th at 2am. We will move our clocks forward one hour. This means 6am is now 7am – and 7pm is really 8pm.   Plan ahead. About 7 to 9 days before the time change, start shifting your baby’s nap and bedtime by 15 minutes...

When you find out you’re expecting, the first baby item you search for is most likely a crib, and for very obvious reasons. Your baby will spend most of their time in the crib in the early days of their life.

And because babies sleep so much, nothing is more important than crib safety! But how do you know which cribs are the safest?

The experts at Newton Baby can help! In this article, we’ll discuss safe sleep guidelines, different sleep options, and how to choose a safe crib for your precious little one.

There’s nothing quite like watching your sweet newborn sleeping peacefully! If you’ve decided to let them snooze in a bassinet for the first few months, you’ll need to know what to look for to keep your baby safe and cozy during every sleep.

The Newton Baby experts are here to help you choose the perfect bassinet. We’ll explain the main differences between bassinets and cribs and then tell you 12 things to look for when shopping for a bassinet!

Making your baby’s nursery a cozy and restful place for them to sleep and grow is important! As you decide how to decorate and furnish their room, you’ll probably want to deck it out with every cute baby pillow you see.

Sleeping on a pillow at night and decorating with throw pillows seems like a no-brainer as adults. But when it comes to baby pillows, there are a few safety considerations you’ll need to keep in mind.

That’s what Newton Baby is here for! In this article, we’ll cover what you need to know about baby pillows to keep your little one safe and comfortable. Then we’ll talk about some of the pillows on the market and when and how you should use them.
As soon as you have a little one, so much of your energy (and money) goes toward keeping them safe. Those instincts kick in quickly! Crib bumpers are one of the baby products on the market that can be confusing.

Are they actually safe for your baby?

If you’re trying to decide if a crib bumper is a necessity in your baby’s nursery, you’re in the right place. We’ll take a look at exactly what crib bumpers are, what they’re meant to accomplish, and whether or not they’re safe for your little one.
Expecting a baby is exciting, overwhelming, and everything in-between! There’s so much to do before your little one makes their big debut. If you’re feeling the pressure, having a pregnancy checklist can help.

A month-by-month to-do list helps you think of things that might not have occurred to you before and ensures that you take care of the necessities. And we have just the thing!
Preparing a nursery for a new little one is fun but not always straightforward! In addition to decisions about decorations and paint color, you’re also trying to figure out how to make the nursery a safe place for your baby.

That includes making sure their crib mattress is safe for sleeping.
Finding out that you’re expecting is a moment unlike any other! But shortly after the initial excitement fades, you may become overwhelmed by the thought of planning financially for your growing family.

Exactly how much does it cost to have a baby? You might be cringing already, assuming it’s a large chunk of money. And it is, but there’s no need to panic.

In this article, our experts at Newton Baby will help you understand the cost and give you some tips for saving money while keeping your baby cared for and safe!

Off-gassing sounds like something that might happen in a chemistry lab or maybe even at your local car mechanic, right? But it actually happens right under your nose in your own home!

If you’ve heard people talking about off-gassing (also known as out-gassing) and you’re wondering what the big deal is, we’re here to give you the low-down. Or maybe you already know something about off-gassing and want to reduce it. We’ll help you out there, too.

You just found out that you're expecting, and it's time to celebrate! What better way to reveal your big news than with a unique announcement? To give you a little inspiration, Newton Baby has put together a list of fun pregnancy announcement ideas.

Whether you want a professional photo shoot, a simple at-home announcement, or to show off your sense of humor, these ideas will make the moment with friends and family one they (and you!) will remember forever.

Congratulations on becoming a parent! While this journey is super exciting, it can also be intimidating, especially for new parents. With all the advice out there, it’s hard to know what (and who) to listen to. 

The experts at Newton Baby are here to soothe your mind and make this parenting journey a little less intimidating. We’ve created a list of 14 survival tips for new parents. So grab your partner and start taking notes! 

In years past, parents raised their babies with only a few essentials. Baby “must-haves” on the market today weren’t even invented then, but parents and babies survived. Here you’ll discover what you really need for your minimalist baby. 

Remember, less is more! The experts at Newton Baby are here to help you minimize your baby items with these 21 must-have minimalist baby essentials.  

When you’re preparing to welcome a baby into your home, creating a baby registry is a must! But with so much on the baby market these days, it’s hard to know what the essential baby items are and what you can skip. 

If you’re a minimalist at heart or simply working with a small space, Newton Baby is here to help you create a minimalist baby registry checklist to cut down on clutter!

We’ll give you a few questions to help you decide what the baby necessities are for your family. After, we’ll include a list of what we think should go on every minimalist baby registry checklist.

As an expectant or new parent, you’re probably wondering, “How many crib sheets do I need?”. While sorting things out as you get ready to welcome a new little one into the world, it’s helpful to have an idea of where to begin. 

This is where Newton Baby steps in to help you make an informed decision. In this article, we’ll answer the question of how many crib sheets you really need. 

But before we get to that, we’ll cover general questions that parents may have in regard to their baby’s crib and crib sheets, so take a look! 

Is it a boy or a girl? At gender reveal parties, the guests (and sometimes the parents as well!) wait eagerly to learn the answer to that question. When a box full of blue balloons bursts open or a pink-filled cake is cut, friends and family exclaim and celebrate. 

Finding out whether you’re expecting a boy or a girl is an exciting moment! Why not share the joy with those closest to you by throwing a gender reveal party?

Here at Newton Baby, we’ve made a guide to help you plan a great gender reveal party. Stick around to figure out the who, what, when, where, and how of throwing this sort of celebration! 

The wait is over — it’s finally time to find out whether you’re expecting a little girl or a little boy! The news itself is exciting enough, but why not tell everyone (or find out yourself!) in a fun, creative way? If you need gender reveal ideas, you’re in the right place.

We’ve got plenty of ideas for you! We’ve even included a few suggestions if you just want the gender reveal to be between you and your partner. Here we go!
Thinking about the day your little one makes their big entrance into the world can make you feel nervous, excited, anxious, overjoyed, and everything in-between! That’s completely understandable. 

To prepare for the big day, think ahead about what you want labor and delivery to be like and then communicate your ideas to the people who will be with you. Enter: your birth plan. 

In this article, the Newton Baby experts explain what a birth plan is and how to create one. We’ll also include a few tips for preparing to welcome your little one into your home, which is just as important as what happens in the delivery room!
As you prepare your baby’s nursery, their crib mattress is one of the most important investments you’ll make. It will grow with them for the next few years! And while you may think an organic mattress is always best, you might want to reconsider. 

In this article, the experts at Newton Baby show you what mattresses are made of, and you’ll see how our mattresses stack up against organic ones. We’ll also uncover the hidden drawbacks of organic so you can discover the Newton difference. 
With two buns in the oven, you might be a bit overwhelmed getting your life organized and your home ready to welcome two little babies. At the top of your to-do list: brainstorm twin nursery ideas.

If you’re at a loss for where to start when it comes to setting up a twin nursery, you’re in the right place.

Here at Newton Baby, we understand that getting ready for a new little one can be a lot of work, especially when you’re preparing for double the trouble and double the fun!
There are plenty of reasons you might opt for a gender-neutral nursery. Maybe you’re expecting twins (a boy and a girl!), waiting to find out your baby’s gender until their birth, or want a versatile nursery that you can reuse for future children.

Whatever your reason, you’re ready to think outside the box and so are we! Here at Newton Baby, we’ve come up with a list of gender-neutral nursery ideas to get your wheels turning.
Your new little one will take up a lot of room in your heart, but they don’t necessarily have to take up a lot of room in your home!

Having a small living space doesn’t mean you can’t have an adorable nursery. What it does mean is that you need plenty of small nursery ideas! It’s time to get creative and make the most of every square inch.
Parenting comes with lots of joys as well as difficulties. Sooner or later, sleeping woes are bound to be one of your parenting challenges.

If your little one had a consistent sleep schedule and suddenly has trouble falling asleep and staying asleep during naptime or bedtime, say hello to sleep regression.

No matter when it strikes, surviving a sleep regression is exhausting for everyone. But don’t be discouraged — the good news about sleep regression is that it will pass and you and your baby will get back to nights of sound sleep.
Whether you’ve just found out that you’re expecting a boy (congratulations!) or you’re in your third trimester and frantically trying to pull your nursery together, your mind is probably swirling with baby boy nursery ideas.

You and your little man will spend a lot of time in his nursery, so you want it to be a cozy space where he can sleep, grow, play, and dream!

With that in mind, Newton Baby has 11 baby boy nursery ideas to help you create a nursery that you (and your little one) will love.
Although you might have to get through morning sickness and an aching back, there are also a lot of fun, exciting aspects of expecting a baby! Designing their nursery is one of them, and if you’re expecting a little girl, your mind is probably swirling with baby girl nursery ideas.
With a brand new baby at home, you’re learning how to keep your tiny human clean, diapered, fed, and well-rested. One challenge you might face is figuring out how to wrap your baby in a swaddle.

At Newton Baby, we care about safe sleep for babies! That’s why we’re here to help you understand swaddling so your tiniest one can rest well and you can have some peace of mind.

We’ll discuss the benefits of swaddling, how to do it, and how to help your baby transition out of a swaddle when it’s time.
With the morning sickness and exhaustion of your first trimester on their way out, you might be doing a little happy dance as you enter your second trimester!

In general, most women feel better during their second trimester. But, of course, there are still changes that will happen in your body as your baby belly continues to grow.

In this article, the experts at Newton Baby tell you when this trimester is, how your baby is growing, what you can expect, and how to care for yourself during these three months.
Regardless of how easy or difficult your pregnancy has been, by the third trimester you’re itching to meet your little one! But don’t wish them into this world too soon — they (and you!) still have some growing to do.

In this article, the Newton Baby experts tell you about some of the changes to expect during your third trimester and what you can do about them.

But before we get to that, let’s talk about when the third trimester is and how your baby is growing.
Whether you’re adopting or pregnant, you’re probably already counting down the days until your little one is in your arms! Preparing to welcome a new baby into your family is exciting, but it can also feel overwhelming — there’s a lot to do before baby comes.

Between stocking up on diapers, choosing a doctor, and making financial preparations, you have many things to think about! If you’re wondering how to prepare for a baby, the Newton Baby experts are here to help with six essential tips.
The first few weeks with your brand-new baby are incredibly exciting but also tiring — especially when you realize that your little newborn sleeps all the time but somehow leaves no time for you to rest.

Newton Baby is here to help you understand newborn sleep patterns (or lack thereof!) and navigate the first few weeks. We’ll discuss newborn sleep safety, sleep patterns (and how to help them create a schedule!), and how to care for yourself during those happy but exhausting first few weeks.

You have a lot on your mind as you prepare for your baby’s arrival — not the least of which is how you’re going to acquire everything you need to care for them. Luckily, your friends and family are ready to shower your little one with love and gifts and will soon be looking for your baby registry. 


To create a registry complete with all the items you’ll need for your baby, you’ll first want to come up with a baby registry checklist. We’ve done the work and created one for you so you can be sure to register for the baby essentials!


But since every family’s needs are different, we’ve also included some tips to help you personalize your registry. Before we get to the checklist, let’s start with when and where to create your registry.

As a parent, your baby’s safety, comfort, and happiness are always on your mind. During the day, you feed them, burp them, cuddle them, and change their diaper — just to name a few of your parenting responsibilities. But what does it mean to look out for your little one’s safety while they’re sleeping?

In this article, the experts at Newton Baby tell you how to create a safe sleep environment for your baby so both of you can rest easy and sleep well.

We’ve got seven safe sleep tips that you can put into practice right away, whether you’re a brand-new parent or still awaiting the arrival of your little one.

If you’re wondering what the differences are between a bassinet and a crib and which one is best for your baby, you’re not alone! As a parent, safety is always on your mind, with safe sleep at the top of that list.

And a big part of the question of sleep safety is whether to go with a bassinet or a crib. Fortunately, Newton Baby’s experts are here to guide you through your baby’s journey to safe sleep.

In this article, we’ll provide you with the answers to commonly asked questions so that you can make the best decision for your family.

Getting ready to welcome a baby into your home can be exciting, overwhelming, and everything in-between. One of your biggest tasks is to fill your house with the things you’ll need to take care of your little one. But it can be hard to know which items are baby essentials and which ones you can live without. 

To help you figure out what to buy, the experts at Newton Baby have organized the baby essentials into seven categories: nursery, clothing, diapering, bath time, feeding, health and safety, and playtime and carrying. We’ll tell you the must-haves for each category and you can let your family’s preferences dictate the rest.

When it’s your turn to celebrate a friend’s baby on the way, you want to bring the perfect gift for the baby shower! But it can be difficult to think of something that’s unique and meaningful, and that expresses your love for the new baby and his or her parents.

If you’re running short on baby shower gift ideas, look no further. With these 47 ideas from Newton Baby, you’re sure to find something that’s just right.

Expecting a child is an exciting and busy time. Whether you’re pregnant or adopting, you’ll spend the months leading up to your little one’s arrival dreaming about what they’ll be like and preparing to have them in your home. 


Getting your home ready for a baby means that you’ll need to make a baby checklist and do some shopping. But with so many baby products on the market, deciding what to buy can be overwhelming. To help, Newton Baby has created a list for you!
The nursery is your baby’s very first personal living space. With all the decisions you face for your little one — from which pediatrician you’ll see to how you’ll feed your newborn and everything in-between — choosing between different nursery ideas is one decision that you can enjoy making! 

While your little one won’t remember the wall decor or color scheme in their nursery, they will remember the “feel” of the room — specifically, the feeling of love and security. 

As a new parent, one of your main priorities is sleep — for your sake and your baby’s. But because the saying “sleep like a baby” isn’t always accurate, babies often need some help in this area. If this is the case for your little one, you may want to consider sleep training. 

In this article, the experts at Newton Baby provide a complete guide for sleep training your baby so that you and your little one can get the restful sleep you need.

Watching your precious baby grow and reach developmental milestones is one of the greatest joys of parenthood. And seeing your little one flip from tummy-to-back or back-to-tummy is no exception! 

But if you’re wondering exactly when babies roll over and when your little one will reach this milestone, the Newton Baby experts are here to answer your questions. In this article, we’ll tell you when most babies roll over, how to help yours make the big flip, and how to keep them safe when they do. 

With a baby on the way, you are likely going to spend a significant amount of time designing a nursery, which requires making decisions about everything from paint colors to diaper storage. In addition to these design choices, you’ll also have some decisions to make about the place where your little one will spend most of their time — the crib. 

Choosing a crib and the correct crib mattress size are major decisions not only for the design of your nursery but also for your baby’s safety. In this article, the experts at Newton Baby discuss the types of cribs and their corresponding crib mattress sizes so that you can make an informed decision for your new little one.

When you have a baby, everyone talks about sleeping through the night as the holy grail of sleep. But as any parent holding a fussy, overtired infant in her arms quickly learns: daytime sleep is essential, too. How do you get a baby to nap?  Plus, improving the quality of your baby’s naps will actually translate to better sleep at night. So, whether you have a squirmy newborn or rambunctious toddler, here’s everything you need to know for setting your little one up for nap-time success.   0-4 months What you should know: Your newborn is growing and developing at...

  Just as you’re emerging from the newborn haze and your baby is sleeping for longer stretches during the night it hits—the 4-month sleep regression.

I feel you, mama.   First, rest assured that the sudden changes in your baby’s sleep habits are developmentally normal.

When you've breastfed two kids and you're a pediatrician, you might think there isn't much more to learn about breastfeeding—but you would be wrong. I had my third son a few months ago. I was nervous. It has been four years since I last breastfed and, even then, I struggled a bit in the beginning.

This time, the baby latched right away; after 24 hours, though, my nipples were killing me. I found myself with the same worries I advise mothers about. How do I know my baby is getting enough? Will this pain stop? Am I doing this right?

We've rounded up our top five nursing covers on the market in honor of Breastfeeding Awareness Month, each of which offers a uniquely specific take on the product at hand.

Sleep disturbances, pregnancy-related insomnia, and weird or vivid dreams are common during pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimesters. In a National Sleep Foundation poll, 78% of women reported experiencing more disturbed sleep during pregnancy than when not pregnant. Hormonal changes, pain and discomfort, and anxiety are three key factors that contribute to sleep challenges.

Progesterone levels rise during pregnancy, which can cause sleepiness during the day and wakefulness at night. Fluctuating estrogen levels also create physiological changes. Nausea, heartburn, lower back pain, needing to pee a lot, and general discomfort can leave the body feeling out of sorts. Feeling anxious about baby coming can make falling asleep and staying asleep trickier.

Read on to ensure that your baby's crib is as safe as can be, allowing for sound sleep for your little one and a sound mind for yourself.

When you're pregnant and a new mom, sleep can seem like an ever-elusive thing you're always trying to get. As a pediatrician and OB/GYN with five kids between us, we get it. Here are some of our favorite tips for getting as much rest as you can while pregnant and when your little one arrives.

1. A bed should be for sleeping only

I think we're all guilty of crawling into bed at night, and then watching TV or reading a book or even chatting on the phone. These activities are confusing to our body and mind. Try to restrict the activities you do in bed. When you lie your head down on your pillow at night, it should be for sleep only.
