How to Shop for Car Seats Building a warm, cozy space for baby is a special time for expectant parents. And we've got what it takes to create your perfect nest. From contemporary designs to updated classics, you'll find furniture, mattresses, bedding and decor that fit your budget and lifestyle.
1. select your crib
A crib is the centerpiece of your nursery, so choose one you love in a finish that will harmonize with your flooring and wall color. Want extended use? Convertible cribs transform into toddler/day beds or full-size beds. (With bed rails and conversion kits, sold separately.)

2. organize in style
A changing table, dresser or armoire help organize baby's world and add charm to the nursery. Complete the look with bedding and accessories to complement your personality and style.

3. pick a mattress
Firmness and durability are key to selecting a mattress. If you opt for foam, look for high-density. If you opt for coil, look for a high coil count and wire strength. Simple tip? Give a mattress a squeeze to test for firmness.

4. choose a glider
Be sure to make room for a glider... it's a feeding, bonding and relaxation must. Look for padded armrests, extra-wide seats to accommodate a nursing pillow, and a reclining feature for some well-deserved rest.
What to Look For? Select pieces that offer utility, comfort and convenience without sacrificing safety or style.

firmer is better!
The greater the foam density or coil count and wire strength, the better support the mattress provides.

Look for a strong border rod and multiple interior layers to help support the mattress core.
