When it comes to the growth of your baby, time, indeed, quickly flies. He or she could go from being a very docile creature into something with boundless energy with a knack for wreaking havoc around the house. Also, before any of the most popular superheroes or fairy princesses takes your baby with them on countless imaginary adventures, you can get your fill of priceless and cute moments with him or her using a monkey-themed nursery.
Before your baby can outgrow his or her fondness for silly things, here are a few things you can do to your nursery room for that amazingly endearing monkey theme:
1. Monkey Crib Bedding
You can begin the makeover on your baby’s crib by getting a bed sheet with monkey designs or decorations. If you have to start somewhere, you might as well do it on the main part of the nursery room, which is the crib.
2. Monkey Blanket
Your baby’s monkey blanket could be the usual imprinted version or you can opt for something with a little more texture for better feel. It will make your bedtime stories more real since it helps your baby with his thinking. There is also likely to be a struggle before your baby decides to use the monkey blanket. You can avoid any kind of skirmish with your baby by using the monkey blanket for a night or two before handing it out to him or her. Nothing settles a baby down during bedtime the way your soothing scent does.
3. Monkey Wall Decals
The walls occupy a huge area inside the nursery room. You can take advantage of the size and space by using monkey wall decals. Monkey wall decals allow you to put the best monkey designs all over the place with ease and convenience. Your creativity should help your baby’s imagination by the way the monkeys are positioned or located.
4. Monkey Lamp and Shade
Get your baby ready for his or her nighttime rest with a monkey lamp and shade. The light should be enough to bring out the monkey designs without interrupting his readiness to go to sleep.
5. Monkey Pacifier
Your lifeline to sanity could also be a part of the monkey theme. Use a monkey pacifier to keep your baby interested while he also gets comfortable with the pacifier.
6. Monkey Play Mat
The floor is another area with great potential when it comes to the monkey theme. Just like the walls, you can reinforce the monkey theme by using a monkey play mat. While your baby scoots all over the place, he or she still has his cute monkeys as companions. Other than its decorative purposes, a play mat can also double as a sort of protective layering for his knees and hands and helps in the cushioning when your baby falls to the floor.
7. Monkey Pillow Set
By now, you should know that a pillow is easily one of your baby’s most treasured things. A monkey pillow could begin by just being a pillow before it gets dragged around wherever your baby goes. It may well serve your baby as both a toy and a must-have part of his or her sleep.
8. Musical Monkey Mobile
Music is interesting and sweet to the ears of your baby. Use musical monkey mobile for both hearing and visual entertainment for your baby.
9. Monkey Light Switch Cover
If you think that you can forget about the light switch cover since you already have a monkey wall decal, think again. The monkey theme can be really all-encompassing and should rightfully include the switch cover. You should not worry though, as the cover is not simply for aesthetic sense. This is the kind that works just like the way any standard switch cover does.
10. Monkey Wall Plaque
If you there is one area of the monkey theme where you can slightly overdo without getting criticized, it has to be the wall. The monkey wall decals can still be enhanced by adding a monkey wall plaque. You now could probably see monkeys dancing in your baby’s eyes.
11. Monkey Changing Pad Cover
The monkeys are everywhere, including the pad cover. If you had to really stick to the monkey theme, this is a thing that can do a makeover as well. The pad cover can feature monkeys with silly expressions or monkeys with “I know what just happened” looks. Since taking care of your baby’s poop is part of the job, you might as well keep it light with monkeys laughing with you or cheering you on.
12. Monkey Costume
Now, this one should top them all. If you can somehow manage to wrestle your baby inside a monkey costume, this should be right there at the top of those priceless moments. Also, a photo of your baby inside a monkey costume could be a very key piece if you plan on blackmailing your baby once he or she grows up. Kidding aside, you simply can’t pass up the opportunity of dressing your baby in the cutest way there is. Take advantage of it while time and circumstances still allow you to do it.
