It doesn’t hurt to also have a small side table to place a cup of water, your phone, a journal with pen for logging your baby’s feeding and sleep schedule, and some reading materials.
Bonus: Notice the wallpaper on the ceiling for an original jolt of visual interest as your baby stares up from the crib.
When you start sleep training, it will be a comfortable spot for you to wait. It can also be a cute corner for reading time and an additional sleeping spot for that out-of-town guest (a.k.a. grandma).
