    Why no blanket and pillow in the crib? We’re told by the midwife to use a pillow to prevent flat head and my kid would freeze without a duvet. For the first 3 months he slept under my duvet and it was super cosy ❤️ even though it’s not recommended to share bed with your baby!

    I hate this woman so much. Saying that room is tiny is just so ignorant. That is not a small room! That is a big room for the majority of the viewers. Some people just need a big slap of reality. And ffs it's only the babies room. It's not like the baby is gonna shout out. "Mammy, my rooms to smaaalllll!"

  • Jennydoesballet -Dance

    2:59 what a horrible wall paper . Also that room is the opposite of small.

    The fact that she called this a small room is astounding. The fact that you even have room for a nursery is a blessing. I grew up in Manhattan and shared a room with 3 other people and I never felt like my apartment was too small. Now I am just finishing college and am terribly afraid that I wont be able to move back to the city I love because of people like her--who grew up in some rich house in the suburbs and them came to the city because they though it was cool, gentrifying the fuck out of it, and then kicking all of us who actually grew up here out. This video was just like 'let me show how privileged I am and complain about how much of a nuisance it is for me.' If you're just gonna move in, raise the prices, and complain, gtfo and don't come back. K cool. Have a good day.

    How funny she’s called Charlotte Elizabeth... The pink was called “Middleton Pink” like Kate Middleton who has a daughter called Charlotte, plus Kate’s middle name is Elizabeth (plus Princess Charlotte has Elizabeth as one of her middle names). BUT welcome to the world YOUR princess Charlotte.

    Honestly though, I'm sad and borderline disgusted by all the negative comments about how much the nursery costs, the damn chair, about the dimensions of the room... I scrolled down expecting to read nice and heart-warming comments, after all she seems very nice and the video is about a super cute nursery for a newborn child, but I got exactly the opposite. Stop being so negative, why do you care about how much money she and her husband make or how small or big the room is or whatever? It's not your place to judge or comment, you literally know nothing about them, about their history, so why bother writing something that will only spread negativity? If you haven't something to say to cheer not only her but people in general, please just don't say anything at all

    Not extremely tiny though..... I’m stuck between getting rid of my table and chairs to section of a piece of the kitchen so my child an have more space or just having a rib in the corner of our bedroom right next to the bed... so a room... small maybe...

    Uhm okay enough with the money comments and "that's not extremely tiny" comments. The space is beautiful and I am sure creative people can find ways to get a similar look way cheaper. :D
    And this might be perceived as extremely small to some people. I think it is a perfect size for a nursery and can easily be made into a bedroom for 2 children one day.

    Omg I use a company like Framebridge too! It's called "My local dollar store." The process is super simple- you get a few dollars, drive to the dollar store, buy the proper sized frame for your picture/artwork, and voilá! You have an actually practical way to frame stuff

  • Plueschbaellchen
    Plueschbaellchen 28 days ago

    The room looks nice but I'm missing an overall theme or a special eye catcher. The video overall is not relatable. The room is small, ok... but she is turning this into a huge problem which it really isn't. The prices for most of those things are ridiculous, the chair especially... does'nt even look very comfy. And then all the fussing about some small details... the baby won't mind whether there is a hamper with grey pompoms or a table. The priorities just seemed to be messed up here. I don't see a room for a baby but a room for an adult with to much money to spend. You talks about modern and minimalistic... it's none of those things.

    And definitely first time mom. 😉
    With my first I got her room ready, the whole 9 yrds...
    She slept in it..... Ohhhhhh 3/4 naps 😆
    Figured out it was easier to get a bassinet and a small table with a basket for baby things.
    I got really sick after I had my first. And was diagnosed with Lupus when she was 3 months old. So getting up and down during the night wasn't all that feasible for me.
