So let's talk nursery. How much fun are you having thinking about and planning your nursery? Well some of you might find it a bit overwhelming. So I'm here to give you another perspective when choosing your furniture.
I'm not giving any styling advice whatsoever, my advice comes from a postural point of view with the idea to prevent you from having back pain.
Firstly where are you going to feed your child?
If you choose to have a chair here's some things to think about.
If you chose not to go with a chair, the same things regarding your posture still apply - choose your feeding spot based on back support, pillows and cushions and sit up tall when feeding.
Secondly where are you going to change your babies endless nappies??? when looking for a change table keep in mind you want the table to be about waist height, so you can fold from your hips when changing them. Ideally an adjustable one would be the best so you and your partner can look after you backs. Also make sure you are as close to the table as possible and use your pelvic floor and deep tummy muscles for added support.
