Nursery Essentials: Nursery Wood Jumpers to Play Tunnels

The journey of parenthood is a fascinating one. As parents prepare for the newest addition to the family, building a nursery is an important project that needs attention. 

The baby nursery is a space where your baby will spend most of their time in the early days, so it is crucial to ensure that it is a safe, happy, and comfortable environment for them to develop and blossom.

Nursery Essentials - from Cribs to Nursery Play Tunnels and Nursery Wood Jumpers

One of the key elements in your baby's nursery is the furniture. From cribs to changing tables, there are various pieces that you need to consider when setting up your baby's room. Here are some must-have furniture pieces for your baby's nursery:


A crib is the most important piece of furniture in a baby's nursery. It provides a safe and comfortable place for your little one to sleep and nap. When shopping for a crib, choose one that meets current safety standards and is sturdy enough to withstand your baby's movements.

Changing Table

A changing table is another essential piece of furniture for any baby nursery. It provides a safe and convenient place for diaper changes and storage for diapers, wipes, and other changing essentials. Look for a changing table with safety straps and guardrails for added security.

Glider or Rocking Chair

A comfortable chair is a must-have for those late-night feedings and cuddles with your baby. A glider or rocking chair provides a cozy spot for you and your little one, and the gentle motion can also help soothe your baby to sleep.


Babies may be tiny, but they come with a lot of stuff! A dresser in the nursery is essential for storing your baby's clothes, blankets, and other essentials. Look for one with ample storage space and consider adding safety straps to secure it to the wall.

Storage Baskets/ Bins

Besides a dresser, having some storage baskets or bins in the nursery can help keep things organized and within reach. You can use them for storing toys, books, or even extra diapers and wipes.

Nursery Wood Jumper

Over time, as the baby grows and develops, you can incorporate 'toys' that can help encourage your child's cognitive and motor skills development. One of our favorite early toys at this stage our signature neutral color baby jumper: The Rue.

The Rue is 100% wooden, aesthetically pleasing baby jumper. It is the only natural nursery wood jumper on the market.

Although, babies can't use a baby jumper in their first few months, it always pays to think ahead and allocate space in the nursery or baby's room to support and encourage a child's physical development through movement. The first few months with your newborn will fly by!

An All-Natural Nursery Cotton Play Tunnel

Once your baby begins to crawl you will want to both baby proof their nursery and have 'play' items to keep them entertained. The Monty Organic Cotton Play Tunnel will help entertain your crawling baby for hours.

This neutral color play tunnel (looks great in any nursery!) is made of 100% organic cotton to ensure that your baby isn't exposed to any toxic chemicals.

Play Mat

As the baby grows, he will need a space to explore and play safely. A soft, padded play mat is perfect for tummy time, crawling, and playing with toys. Look for one that is easy to clean and has bright colors and patterns to stimulate your baby's senses.


Reading to your baby is not only a great bonding activity, but it also helps with their cognitive development. A bookshelf in the nursery is perfect for storing all those board books and picture books for you and your little one to enjoy together.


A nightlight is a must-have in the nursery for those middle-of-the-night diaper changes and feedings. Look for one with a soft, warm glow to help soothe your baby back to sleep.

Toy Chest/ Storage Bench

As your baby grows, they will accumulate more toys and stuffed animals. A toy chest or storage bench is a great way to keep them all in one place and teach your little one about cleaning up after playtime.

Rocking Chair/ Glider

Last but certainly not least, a rocking chair or glider is essential for any nursery. It provides a cozy spot for you and your little one, and the gentle motion can also help soothe your baby to sleep.

Storage Solutions 

In addition to these essential furniture items, remember storage solutions. Babies come with many things, from diapers and clothes to toys and books. Look for furniture that offers ample storage options, such as a changing table with shelves or a dresser with multiple drawers. We love the Monty Play Shelf and the Monty My Little Table Set.

Thoughts to Keep in Mind to Make Choosing the Nursery Furniture Seamless

Remember, these are just some essential furniture for a baby's nursery. Consider adding a changing table, a crib mobile, or even a wall decal for added decoration and personality.

Converging Fuction and Style 

When designing a nursery the most important goal is to create a nurturing and safe environment for your baby. You should consider both functionality of the furnitire AND the style. Proper aesthetics in your baby's nursery can help relax both you and your baby. We always advise new parents to choose furniture that meets their needs and fits their style

 A couple of our favorite nursery toys that converges function and style are our Monty Organic Cotton Play Tunnel and The Rue nursery wood jumper.

The Monty Organic Cotton Play Tunnel is crafted from top-notch, toddler-friendly 100% organic cotton, ensuring it is devoid of any harmful chemicals. It is a play item that provides developmental stimulus for your child while providing a modern, simplistic style.

The Rue nursery wood jumper is the only 100% wooden baby jumper on the market. It is the only neutral color baby jumper available in the US. In addition to offering style to your nusery and helping your child develop, The Rue is eco-friendly and uses sustainable, non-toxic materials that are good for your baby and the environment.

Safety is always top priority

Remember that safety is vital when shopping for nursery furniture for babies. Look for furniture that is sturdy and meets all the necessary safety standards. Consider using non-toxic materials and finishes to avoid potential harm to your little one.

Functionality pays off

In addition to safety, superior functionality is essential when choosing furniture. Look for items that can grow with the child, such as a convertible crib or changing table that can later be used as a dresser. It will save money in the long run and make transitioning from being an infant's room to being a toddler's room much smoother.

Comfort enhances well-being

Another factor to consider is comfort. The baby will spend a lot of time in their nursery, so choosing comfortable furniture for the little one is important. A padded rocking chair or glider can provide a cozy spot for nursing or cuddling, while a soft and supportive crib mattress will help the baby sleep soundly.

Closing Thoughts

Creating a welcoming and functional nursery for your baby is all about finding the right balance between style and practicality. With these tips, parents can confidently choose furniture to help their little ones grow up healthy, happy, safe, and strong. So have fun designing baby's nursery and enjoy this particular time as parents prepare for the arrival of their precious bundle of joy.
