When it comes to furnishing a nursery, finding the right pieces is essential to making the baby's room as functional as possible. Next to the crib, changing table( or dresser) and nursery chair-an ottoman is an important piece that can enhance your nursery design. Ahead, find our picks for the best ottomans for the nursery.
Newborn babies breastfeed 8-12 times a day and then eventually 7-9 times a day, which means a lot of time sitting on the nursery chair nursing or bottle feeding the baby. So we probably don’t need to tell you just how important it is to set up a nursing nook that's super functional and comfortable. Along with a comfortable nursery chair-you'll need a side table for keeping your water glass, phone, etc. and an ottoman or footstool to rest your tired legs.
An ottoman or a footstool helps with positioning the baby for breastfeeding. It also provides relief from leg, back, shoulder tension. The best ottoman for the nursery is one that helps you get in the most comfortable ergonomic position for feeding- eliminating pain and injury.
When shopping for an ottoman for the nursery, pay close attention to your desired comfort level. Also keep an eye for ottomans that come with storage space-if you are looking to add extra nursery storage.
