If you discover you have a multiple birth this question may be more pressing than if you are bringing a singleton home. But what you are more likely to find is that what you have is truly more than enough. You can always make do.
So think it through. Is there room for the baby to have his or her own room? Is the room sizable and can hold a variety of items or is it more of a shoebox?
If you are simply going to be too squished with a new baby or two or three, you might want to move before the baby arrives. It will never be easier to accomplish this feat than sans bebe.
Some people want clearly divided parts of the house. They want areas for the children that are designed to stimulate developing minds and neater more orderly parts of the house for entertaining, working or just relaxing without mayhem!
Perhaps your current home cannot provide for all the needs of your soon to be emerging family and you want the ability for everyone to have some well needed elbow room.
If you already have the perfect location and lot with a bit of excess, do the addition ASAP! Otherwise, hunt wisely, and get things well in hand before your bundle of joy arrives.
Nesting will happen whether you move or stay put. Everyone needs to impose a bit of order before the baby, or babies as the case may be, arrive(s). Have fun with it.
Get the perfect decorator if that’s your thing. Get ideas from Pinterest if that suits your needs. Design away and create the perfect spot for you darling one to grow.
