You and your new baby are going to spend a fair amount of time in the nursery, whether you're reading, playing, feeding, or changing your baby's diaper. So naturally, you want to make it a space that's comfortable to be in. Once you buy the basics, consider investing in these additional products so that your baby's nursery is both mom- and baby-friendly.

A rocking chair and side table: You'll spend a lot of time cuddling with and feeding your new baby. And that's great! These activities encourage bonding and help infants develop healthy emotional attachments. Having a sturdy rocking chair or glider in your baby's nursery will make you more comfortable, while the gentle back-and-forth motion is soothing for your little one. Keep a small side table next to the chair for easy access to items you'll need for breastfeeding or bottle feeding, plus water and healthy snacks for you.

A fan: A breeze will help you and your new baby stay cool, literally and figuratively. That's because the fan's constant whirring acts like a white noise machine, which can help calm your little one when he's fussy.

A mobile: Pick a mobile that's colorful (red is the first color he will be able to see) and that has varied shapes, for more visual interest. If you plan on hanging the mobile over your baby's crib, make sure it is firmly fastened to the side rails and placed high enough so your baby can't reach to pull it down. When your baby is 5 months old (or sooner, if your baby starts to push up to his hands and knees before then) you'll need to remove it from the crib and hang it someplace else.

A CD or MP3 player: Listening to soft, soothing music in your baby's nursery can help both of you wind down before naptime and at the end of the day.

Books, books, and more books: When your new baby is just weeks or months old, you might think a shelf filled with colorful storybooks is purely decorative. But books will do more than make your baby's nursery look great, since reading out loud to your child — no matter what her age — helps teach her about vocabulary, communication, and the world around her.

Of course, the best accessories for your baby's nursery are mom and dad! So enjoy playing and interacting with your baby as much as you can. Before you know it, you'll be switching out her crib for a big-kid bed, so cherish these early memories while they last!
