Our fourth is due in a month, and thing I really want is a dimmer switch in the nursery, mostly for midnight diaper changes or nursing in the rocker. The rocker is probably the most essential piece of furniture, followed by the hamper. Like many, we also breastfed, co-selpt and used cloth diapers with all the others and found the nursery was mostly a nice-looking storage space for baby stuff, at least until the kids were 2 or 3. With our toddler, it has been nice to have a small scale chest of drawers, bookshelf and toy baskets so she can get things out and put them away herself.
What Are Your Nursery Must-Haves? Nesting a Nursery

Waldessori! After touring several elementary schools prior to our oldest's kindergarten year, my husband and I joked between ourselves that what we really wanted was a 'Mondorf" school. (Nice to know we are not the only ones out there inclined to mix the two.) The space looks GREAT! What a wonderful place to play. Beautiful windows in that room too.

This reminds me of when my sister called our new bedroom a "landing" (lol). We have a story and a half cape cod, with two rooms upstairs (our bedroom and an attached room that is now our daughter's nursery). I suppose technically I might sleep on the "landing" but we love it.
Don't Overlook The Landing

I live in a 1600 cape cod built in 1940, along with my husband and our three children. It feels just right to me (and I even know where to stash an extra kid, should one arrive). However, I know my mother thinks it is impossibly tiny. We also briefly lived with my in-laws in their 1980s "McMansion", which held four generations (7 adults, two kids) quite comfortably.
