Dragonfly Baby Accessories

Updated on May 26, 2014

Dragonfly Baby -- People Baby's Love Dragonflies Too!

Dragonfly fans are going to understand the importance of introducing our little ones to dragonflies early on. Adding even one of these items to a babies world will be a symbol of welcome for them. Something tells me they will recognize and enjoy a few dragonflies here and there in their room as well as in day to day activities.

Introducing a baby to a dragonfly or butterfly or anything in nature for that matter will give them the beginning of learning about the world around them in a way rich with nature and mystery. Dragonflies are inspirational, adorable, motivating, and they teach us about those around us as well as about ourselves.

Dragonfly Baby Mobile For The Nursery

There are many items in the following section which will add a dragonfly to a nursery.

Many are functional (bedding for example), some are decorative, but the theme is consistent and will allow you to choose one or a few of them to create nature moments in your baby's room.

Any of these items would also make great gifts for your friends and family members who have or are planning to welcome a baby into their lives.

Setting up your Mobile

IMPORTANT... Keep in mind you will want to check each of the following items often (once a month or so) throughout your baby's stay in the crib.Is the mobile out of reach? This is especially important. You may need to raise the mobile up from time to time to allow for growth and gradual mobility when crawling and standing.

Are all of the embellishments secure? Every piece needs to be firmly secure to ensure it will not fall off and become a choking hazard.

Are working parts working? If the mobile is mechanical be sure to check, observe, and repair any working parts promptly.

Does the item need cleaning? Daily life means a bit of cleaning especially in a baby's room. If the item become dusty this potentially can cause breathing allergy or other issues. Read the cleaning directions on everything and make a routine of cleaning or hire someone with skill in baby's room cleaning.

Is sound (if applicable) clear and pleasant? Listen to the sound (some have music) and determine if the sound is clear and pleasant. Sometimes older models of mobiles can become 'clanky' or unpleasant as the sound mechanisms become dusty or worn out.

Have you looked at the mobile from your baby's perspective? Take a few moments to gaze at the mobile from the vantage point your baby is looking at it. Observe shapes and colors. Also observe obstructions (some times we find the mobile isn't going to be enjoyed because the ceiling light is right above it causing eye strain).

Decorations Checklist

IMPORTANT... When you are unpacking decorations these are the things you must check for before they are used. Glitter? Glitter can be an issue if it will gradually get into the child's environment. Keep items with glitter under glass or out of the room completely.

Flammable fabrics? Be sure everything you use for baby's room and surroundings is flame retardant. Especially bedding and clothing worn while sleeping.

Cleaning? Use non-chemical cleaning products. Think about natural items to clean with such as vinegar, backing soda, citrus juice, and other indigestible items. There are plenty of items which can be eaten and also used as a cleaning solution. Research!

Check for choking hazards.Think of the environment in new ways including comfortable light, sound, air, touch, etc. Each of the senses your baby uses are susceptible to the environmental presence. Your baby is depending on you to ensure all is well.

Decorative items make adding a dragonfly to the nursery easy. Think about the ways you can use these decorating accessories in your baby's nursery or anywhere in the house.

Furniture Checklist

IMPORTANT... Checklist for Baby Furniture. Safety! Can small body parts get stuck in furniture construction? Are pieces secure and close enough so fingers, arms, or heads will not get caught?

Paint and Finishes. Is the finish non-toxic? Can the material be cleaned and disinfected?

Appropriate Size. Is the item the right size for baby to use?

Plastics? Are the plastics and other materials (stuffing, lining, metals, etc.) certified non-toxic? Some countries still do not regulate this.

Nursery Bedding Checklist

IMPORTANT... Checklist for Baby Bedding. Flame Retardant Fabrics! This was mentioned before but is one of the most important and overlooked factor. Be sure to have flame retardant bedding, pajamas, and anything which will be in the crib while your child is sleeping.

NO STRINGS! Make sure there are no strings or laces on anything in the bedding that might get tangled around arms, legs, or neck. Check all items after laundering and repair any threads coming lose before they are returned to the crib.

Laundering! Make sure you use non-toxic detergents, softeners, etc. so the chemicals in the laundry do not get into the baby's bed. Remember... even if your child is not allergic to the detergents they are going to likely have the fabrics in their mouths at some time. Additionally think about how the chemicals mix... I read one time where a fabric softener had become so saturated on a fabric (after multiple washing) it was hyper flammable.

Toys which are kept in the crib should be regularly washed. Many pillows and plush toys can be suffocation dangers while babies are sleeping

Check all items again and again to ensure everything is still secure and not going to present a hazard.

Decorating a baby's nursery with dragonflies? Find blankets and bedding sets with dragonfly themes for baby boys, baby girls, and in colors which will work well for both in the nursery.

Memories are kept for years to come. They are given as gifts when the time seems right and usually that will be at a time of passage into adulthood.

Some memory boxes are kept until the next generation is born, while others are given to children on their first journey away from home (off to college for example). When you give this gift is not as important as how you preserve the memory now.

This is a great gift for keeping tiny keepsakes. Just the right size for the hospital wrist band, a lock of hair, a small photo, or any tiny reminders to give to baby later as a symbol of admiration.

    Fabulous nursery tips! I am amazed at what seems like common sense to me now, but I very much remember being a new mother and having to "discover" things, genuinely being surprised by some even after a decade of babysitting. I do love dragonflies, so of course, I love all of the dragonfly nursery decor.
