Whitney Leigh Morris is a designer and new mother living on the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California with her husband, their two pups and new baby, West. Their cottage has a 362 square foot interior, and before their little one arrived last year Whitney and Adam built a very small, yet adorable nursery in their old closet which Whitney they like to call the “Bay.” Her favorite part of putting together the nursery was finding all the little, practical details to use in the space while her son was still an infant. Today Whitney is sharing her tips for creating a nursery in small space.
Before the fourth trimester is over and done I wanted to share the “survival essentials” that have gotten me through this beautiful and sleepy time. These are really focused on the first month and aren’t entirely comprehensive for the full three months of the fourth trimester. While in theory most of these items are for Hazel, they’ve really made my life easier and a little more fun – cause who doesn’t love dressing up their newborn baby even if all you’re doing is hanging around the house?! I hope this list is helpful and please leave any essentials I’m missing out on in the comments below.

Today we’re rounding up a few of our go to tasks that help achieve balance and promote wellness.
