Metro Baby is Australia's one-stop online baby shop.

Designing nurseries and preparing for the arrival of new babies can often be an over-whelming process. There are so many options that selecting exactly what your baby may need becomes quite difficult.

Providing exceptional customer service, the team shares their knowledge and experience to ensure everything is ready for the baby’s arrival, as well as the baby’s needs as it grows.

The team has curated a selection of speciality baby products to design the perfect gender neutral nursery.

Colour is key when creating the nursery. Choose soft neutrals such a cream, soft grey or lemony-yellow. 

Choosing a hero colour or focal point can draw the focus of the room. This may include the bassinet, cot or a window seat. Metro Baby has some of the safest and stylish cots, cradles and bassinets in Australia.

Another key piece of furniture to consider when designing a nursery is storage. Baby’s have lots of things, so its important to have a place to keep everything. From blankets and swaddles, to clothes and toys, Metro Baby has all your needs covered.

Create zones within the nursery for dressing and changing the baby, the Metro Baby range includes the Leander and the Sun Dresser change tables for use with portable change mats, as well as a selection of high-quality change mats.

Sleeping is important for all babies, and parents too! Lighting and noise are important to consider when designing a nursery. The baby sleep products at Metro Baby help babies with sleeping, including the revolutionary Baby Shusher to soothe a fussy baby, gentle soothers and sleep trainers for toddlers.

Metro Baby’s hand selected nursery decor range provides great inspiration for creating beautiful spaces. It is important to think long term when it comes to the nursery furniture and remember the baby’s needs change as they grow. Thinking ahead will ensure you get the most out of your space. Choose bedroom accessories, such as mobiles and cushions, in neutral tones which can be added to and changed.

And finally, start your nursery project early so there is plenty of time to prepare for the arrival of the new baby.
