3-in-1 Convertible Crib

Duchess Meghan is well-known for her eco-friendly nature, and often recycles royal outfits. That noted, her love of the environment is sure to carry over into her baby’s nursery. We think Meghan would approve of this 3-in-1 convertible crib, especially because it converts into a toddler bed, then a daybed, minimizing the impact on our forests.

Tufted Luxury Velvet Wingback Rocker

"A nursing chair that is pure luxury is a must for new parents," notes Toks Aruoture, nursery interior designer and owner of London-based The Baby Cot Shop. Gone are the days of wooden gliders from big box baby stores. Instead, look to rockers that elegantly blend sumptuous comfort and elegance, just like a royal. This plush wingback rocker is made with high-quality fabric. Royal watchers may also want to consider an overstuffed nursery glider.

Organic Cotton 2-Stage Crib Mattress

Only a certified organic mattress made from all-natural materials (and free of chemicals) will do for a little princes or princess. Nursery designer Toks suggests looking for a two-stage organic mattress. This one from Naturepedic can be used once a child moves to a standard bed.

Smart Sleeper Bassinet

Those first few weeks with a new baby can be a blur, even for a duchess. Keep your newborn relaxed in a modern—and functional—bassinet set up next to your bed. The SNOO Smart Sleeper is said to calm cries with white noise and sensations that mimic the womb. A companion mobile app lets you modify motion and sounds, even from your own bed, ensuring you both get a good night’s sleep.
