WHEN TO START DECORATING THE NURSERY?

Caught up in the joyous whirl of discovering you're about to welcome a tiny new addition to your family? Along with the bliss, we bet you're bubbling with questions. One that tends to pop up among soon-to-be parents is this – when's the perfect time to start decorating the nursery? Well, we're more than ready to share a cup of wisdom (or two!) on this front.

The amount of time that most expectant parents wait before planning their nursery varies a lot. Some parents want to get through the early stages of pregnancy before starting the nursery design. Others start gathering inspiration and working on their nursery early in the pregnancy. On average most expectant parents start working on the baby's nursery around 18-20 weeks.
