  1. This room is adorable! But….I’m sorry but whoever thinks this room is appropriate for babies either is on drugs, has never raised a baby, or is OCD!! GLASS jars?? Antler – ANYTHINGS?! And the fallacy that ANY shelving can be expected to keep ONE THING per nook is the ridiculous stuff that pushes postpartum mothers deeper into depression thinking they are completely inadequate in their inability to keep up after busy babies and keep the “perfect baby room” looking so immaculate! Please give us mothers a break!

      Hey Buffy, we totally agree with you! This nursery and the ideas are targeted towards moms-to-be who are planning nurseries before bringing babies home, not necessarily for moms postpartum. We can tell you that no one expects moms to keep nurseries (or anything, really!) perfectly tidy. We’re sorry that it came across that way. Thanks for sharing your honest feedback, and for reading 🙂

    • Kacie

      Wow Buffy. I really appreciated the ideas in this post and the creativity – as a mother of a toddler and a soon to be mother again. Sharing ideas like this does not push people in to postpartum depression or contribute to anyone’s feeling of inadequacy. In fact you would have had to search for this site to find the information…

      Please don’t project feelings or struggles not related or tied to a site showing positive ideas for a nursery theme. Might be a good time to get off the internet and speak to someone about what you are struggling with, or whoever you are speaking on behalf of.

    Gorgeous and beautiful designs. My husband and I have a deep respect for nature and all its beauty. This is also how we want to raise our little bear. Great ideas, THANK YOU! ❤

    • Team Mom Loves Best

      Hi Jenn, we’re so happy you found our ideas useful. Nature really is wonderful. Is this your first baby?
