Create the perfect gender-neutral nursery with these unique picks

Neutral colors create a soothing environment for you and your baby during the blur of the first year of being a family together. Without putting pressure on finding out the sex of the baby or what their gender will be, putting together a chic gender-neutral nursery can be an adventure into choosing the perfect items to create a unique space. Gender-neutral nurseries can have many themes, from a starry night to an African safari, using browns, whites, yellows, and beiges, and bringing in some hues of other colors like pink, blue, green, or orange without them dominating the palette. Using organic materials like rattan, jute, and Water Hyacinth brings in these colors naturally and softens the look of the room.

Here are seven stand-out nursery items from Scandiborn that will bring personality into your gender-neutral nursery.

Momcozy offers the coziest breastfeeding bras and more
review: momcozy

Being a mother is a beautiful and rewarding experience, but it also comes with its challenges and difficulties. Whether a new mom or expecting a baby, you need products to support you throughout this fantastic journey. Momcozy has been around since 2017 creating products for mothers. It offers a range of products that are convenient and durable — from comfy nursing bras to intuitive electric breast pumps and soothing nipple creams to supportive nursing pillows.
What is Momcozy?
Momcozy began in 2017 with a clear vision: to address the challenges mothers faced with existing breast pumping technology. This desire stemmed from the real challenges that mothers encountered. Breast pumping technology back then was hardly suited for the active life of a parent, especially a working mom.

Supported by a community of moms, it introduced the Momcozy Breast Pump Bra. Each year since, the brand has expanded its offerings. Its diverse range of maternity products now includes bottle warmers, pillows, and baby carriers.
