Best Nursery Essentials in Singapore

Getting your baby’s nursery set up can be an overwhelming but nevertheless exciting task that all parents go through at least once. With so many nursery items available on the market, it can be a challenge figuring out what are essentials and what are not. To give you guys a helping hand, we have done our own research and come up with a list of nursery essentials to get you started on preparing the perfect nursery for your precious little one.

To start off, let’s go down the list of what a nursery should have and why:

 

1. Crib/Cot

This should be obvious, seeing as this is where your little one will be spending most of his/her time. When buying a cot, safety should always be the top consideration and you should ensure that your little one has enough room in it. With so many different types of cot, you might be wondering, which one should you get? Well, we’d definitely recommend multi-functional cots as they grow with your little one, ensuring that it’s still useful as a table or playpen even if your baby outgrows the cot. It is also much more cost-efficient as well. Some cots we would recommend are:

 

2. Mattress and Mattress Cover

Yes, some cots do already come with mattresses but there’s still lots to think about. For instance, what fabric is it made of? Is the material breathable? Foam or latex? Latex mattresses are healthier and more eco-friendly although they lack comfort. On the other hand, foam mattresses are known to be much more comfy, but are usually made of harsh chemicals, which may cause irritation to your little one. Firmer mattresses may also be better as soft surfaces conform to your little one, which could possibly result in suffocation.
As for mattress covers, the most important quality would probably be resistance to water. A waterproof mattress cover is definitely a must-have as it makes cleaning up after your little one much easier and fuss-free. To ensure the utmost comfort for your child, the mattress and cover makes a huge difference. Here are some of our top picks:

Mattresses:

Mattress Covers:

 

3. Drawers/Dressers

Definitely an essential, it provides storage space for all your baby’s clothes that you splurged on even before your little one was born. Not only that, other necessities such as diapers, wipes and even your little one’s toys can be kept in these dressers. The dresser is also where baby monitors are placed to watch over your little one so we could recommend that you station it near the cot. Some cots we recommend would include:

 

4. Diapering Essentials

As these will literally be on your baby ALL the time, it is necessary to choose something that will fit your baby perfectly, to ensure that he/she will always be comfortable. Diapering essentials would include wet wipes, pampers, pamper cream, etc. Should you be interested in wet wipes and pampers, we have also written about them more thoroughly, do check it out!

Pali Deocell Mattress

Best Nursery Essentials - Pali Deocell Mattress

Why we love it:

  • 100% Made in Italy
  • Made with Deocell technology
  • Highly breathable material

Product Specifications:

Mattress size: 124 (L) x 64cm (W)

Many of you may have already heard of its sibling, the Pali Evolution Mattress, but we doubt many of you know of the Pali Deocell Mattress. Although pricier than the former, know that the extra penny is going into improving the comfort of the mattress.

First, the outer lining is made of Deocell fabric which helps to neutralize most common ammonia-based odours such as sweat or urine by reacting with the ammonia and converting it into inodorous compounds. On top of odour elimination, the Deocell fabric also stems growth of bacteria, protecting your little one from falling sick easily. Lastly, the material is strong and durable, allowing it to be used for a long time.

The mattress core is made of polyester fibre, a highly breathable material which aids in air ventilation to disperse any accumulated heat and moisture. It also provides support for your little one’s spine and ensures good posture.

What parents think

“Really a wonderful product. I was quite hesitant at first because of the price tag but no regrets so far. The fabric is just so soft and comfy to the touch and my baby sleeps so well on this mattress compared to the previous one she had.” Trisha, mom of one

“I’ve been using this mattress for my boy for about a year now and there’s been no issues so far. There is obviously less odour as compared to the last mattress and the mattress is also firm but comfortable.” Zhi Qing, mom of one
