Esra's Corner...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Here's how we are managing to live with a baby in our bedroom...


The view as soon as you walk in.


This is our side...


And this is Esra's corner.


I have her name above her cot with fabric letters from Mama's and Papa's.


A postcard from paperchase inside an Ikea frame.


A hanging heart from Sainsbury's.


I have tried to keep it clean and simple due to the overwhelming amount of baby stuff that I have had to store.


I added a fabric heart to her cot mobile to match the bedding that I made.


It's from the same fabric as the heart garland I have hanging on the headboard.


Here's the bedding I made whilst pregnant...



I have also managed to squeeze in a chair from Ikea which has been a godsend. I'm actually sitting on it right now as I blog. :)


I don't know how long we will be in this flat, but if we are still here after she has turned 1 then I'm thinking to put in some kind of divider either with fabric or a wooden panel, ideas will be appreciated!

I'm also going to do a storage post on how I store baby's things inside the bedroom and living room.

You have managed the space wonderfully! I know people with separate nurseries who don't make as beautiful a job as you have done. You really need to get that baby bedding into production, i want some when i decide to take the plunge!! xx

Sigh, so beautifully and neat put together, mashAllah!

How does Esra sleep, I mean her nightsleep? And how do you make her sleep? I have a 6 months old baby boy (my second), but this fella is so high maintenance, I rock him to sleep, but he is becoming too big for the bouncer..

The thing is my first son is 19 months and I can't leave either babies alone, so I have to make my small one sleep first, because he is more likely to sleep through noises.

Both have bedtime routine and use dummies. I don't know, I am just curious how other mom's handle, because for me this've been kinda stressful (night sleep).

Hope you read my entry till the end, hahah, and hope to hear from you.

Mwaah, S.

@Safiyya - She wakes up roughly every 4 hours, I'm reading lots of books to help me, I don't rock her I didn't want her to get used to that, I feed her around 8/8.30pm then change her, give her the dummy and play music to her and put on a lightshow, she then sometimes wakes up at 12 and sometimes she doesn't and wakes up around 3, then 7ish it's different everyday, I need to get her in a routine!!! I'm feeding her on demand so I'm all over the place, I need to sort it out< agrrrhh! :~) x

Wow I wish I was that talented! Esra's bedding is gorgeous. I had to put Finn in his own room at 4 months, his sleeping was terrible with us, even now if we are away and he has a travel cot in with us he never settles fully. He has to have it silent and pitch black, high maintaince boy!x

really nice decorations! and a creative use of the space. I'm preparing my little one's corner at the moment too. We also have a 1-bedroom flat with a seperate living room and seperate kitchen, but the living room is our office and the TV is in there. I don't want to put up a divider, because there's only a window on one wall! Here in Italy, though, it seems a lot of people don't have the space and keep the baby in the room for over a year... however, I will admit that I dream of a larger, nicer house!

That bedding is absolutely fabulous and such a keepsake! Big fan of both your blogs :)

What a great post! I'm really impressed about how you've used the space as I have a small 1 bedroom house and was wondering how it would work once we had a little one. Esra is beautiful too :) You've inspired me to get crafty again with your bedding! x
