I’ve gotten a lot of requests to post Nori’s nursery, but we actually didn’t create one for her yet as she’s been sharing our bedroom! I love having her close by, especially during these first few months with multiple overnight feedings and diaper changes. She’s starting to outgrow her bassinet though and actually sleep through the night (!), so we’ll have to clear out a room for her soon!

Both of our parents, on the other hand, were each eager to set aside a nursery space for Nori in hopes that they can see their grandbaby more often. We spent Thanksgiving week at my parents’ home, where we have the Kendall convertible crib in the low profile option (4 inches lower than their regular crib) – finally a baby crib for petite moms! I’m 5 feet tall and my whole family is on the shorter side, so having this lower side panel (since drop-side cribs were banned for safety reasons) makes it a lot easier to lift a weighty baby in and out.

There are three mattress platform settings so you can lower it as your little one grows – it’s set at the highest one in these photos. The Kendall crib can also convert to a toddler bed, and we love the beautiful solid wood quality and the protective teething guard along the top rail. See all coordinating Kendall furniture items here.

I’m partnering with Pottery Barn to share their Fair Trade Certified products, which are produced in factories that ensure fair and safe labor practices. You can read more about this initiative and see all of their fair trade products here. The entire Kendall furniture collection is made in a Fair Trade Certified factory (and is Greenguard Gold certified), plus is on extra sale this weekend making the crib half off its original price! My other fair trade picks include their popular Addison rug, and this soft, organic teddy bear bedding collection with matching pajamas (all on sale).

We kept this space for Nori bright and airy with just white but in a mix of textures. She loves reading with us on this fluffy rug and giggling at herself in the mirror! I added a hint of print with this darling bow sheet, and made a simple “wreath” with a quilting hoop, garden wire, and dried eucalyptus.

    Hey Jean

    The Kendall low profile crib for petite mama, what exactly the height of the side bar (from the edge of bar to the floor)? Do you have any trouble to put baby down especially when the baby can start standing, you’ll need to put the crib all the way down?
    Are you feel comfortably doing it?

    Is it will have big sale on Thanksgiving holiday?

    Hi Jean, First off, I love your blog! I’m also a petite mom-to-be and realized you’d be the best person to ask this question: did you find a good changing table (or dresser that you can put a changing pad on) for your nursery? I’ve done some research but haven’t found any great suggestions. Thank you in advance!

      Hi Sarah, congratulations!! How exciting. So you can really put a changing pad on any flat surface that’s a comfortable height for you. We just ended up getting this Evolur dresser but it’s a standard height and has been comfortable for me, so you can really just go with any baby furniture line you’ve been looking at but check the dresser height against a piece of furniture at home to make sure it’s comfy height for you to bend over, etc. In our new condo we added a changing pad even on top of a horizontal bookshelf so we have toy and baby item storage inside the shelf and changing space on top. Best wishes with your pregnancy and congrats again on the new addition!

    Hi Jean, I am a petite mom-to-be and planning to get the same crib here that you recommended. May I ask which crib mattress you used? Is it also from Pottery Barn and is it the regular lullaby mattress or the supreme lullaby mattress? Thank you!

      Hi Vickie, congratulations! I’m not sure actually as my parents got the mattress for Nori, but check my IG stories this month as I’m partnering with Newton mattress which I truly think is a well designed breathable mattress!

    Hi SM,

    Thank you in advance!

    I am wondering what nursing chair your recommend?
    everything I’ve tried is huge and uncomfortable…
    your help is appreciated as I need to get one soon 😉

      Not sure if you’re still in the market for a nursing chair but I looked high and low for one that accommodated my stature (I’m 4’10.5″) and I finally found the perfect one at La-Z-Boy! My femur fit fine, feet touch the ground, it swivels and reclines at 3 different settings. Buy Buy Baby has a bunch too but they don’t have as many options as the La-Z-Boy one did.

    Have you found a similar petite-size changing table? It didn’t look like the Kendall line had a changing table online.

    I’ve been reading along with you for a few years now and I just had to say that Nori has to be the prettiest baby I have ever seen! (I’m a mom of 3! Ha!)
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    What a beautiful space! I did a whole nursery before my baby girl arrived, but she stayed in our room for 3 months and we mostly used her room for diaper changes and snuggling in the recliner!
