Beau's Montessori Room 8 Months

Welcome to baby Beau's Montessori Bedroom! 
Where did we start when creating Beau's (Tiny) room... Well the main idea behind the Montessori infant room is to foster independence.  So with this in mind my daughter and I went to work creating Beau's beautiful space. 

There is a low floor bed for Beau so that he can move freely and safely on and off. In a conventional cot the child relies on the adult to leave his sleeping space whereas a floor bed gives him a choice to leave when he wants without feeling like he's locked in.  I've tried to used natural materials wherever possible and his floor bed is made from organic coconut husk.

There's a large mirror hung low which we purchased from ikea. By viewing his own reflection Beau is not only improving his concentration skills (he will out stare anyone, even himself), he is also improving his ability to move around and manipulate objects by observing his own actions. 

There's a soft floor space. Beau's room was initially my study nook so unfortunately it is a small space, but you make do with what you have and create a space that works for you and your baby. The floor is covered in a ribbed mat and soft sheepskin rug.  When Beau was first learning to leave his bed and venture further across his room the sheepskin rug was an ideal landing space. And the ribbed mat is helping him to grip the floor as he tries to move across it. 

There's a low shelf with educational materials that Beau can see and with some support grab. The materials are ordered, age appropriate and have a purpose. The golden rule with the shelf is less is always best! Beau has a small selection of books, musical instruments and toys that we rotate on a regular basis. I try to also keep the toys in the same place so he is familiar with where to find them and where to return them. Of course, he is not at the stage of returning the materials, but its great to start role modelling this process early on. 

My favourite area in Beau's room is his weaning table and chair where he sits, eats, and plays with his toys. The chair is low to the ground so Beau can sit by himself and will be able to move freely in and out once he starts climbing and crawling. This weaning set we made our selves. Beau loves sitting at his table playing with different materials. He is definitely learning the law of gravity at the table dropping and picking up his toys.
Beau's clothes are stored in a small cupboard which will also be an ideal height for when he is older. At the moment he loves pulling all the clothes out of the drawers.

Things that we are changing in his room....
The shelf is a temporary one we purchased from ikea. I am currently designing a larger shelf to match his chair and table with separate cubicles (6). When Beau starts walking the cubicles will help him access the materials more easily and keep the materials in the right space. I will post the shelf on the blog once its finished. 
I'm looking for a good sturdy pull up bar to go in front of Beaus mirror so that he can practice pulling him self up. I would also like to get some artwork that we can hang low on the walls for him. Another thing that i will do for him when he is a bit bigger will be to get some spice racks from ikea to hang low and display/store his books a bit like here.

I hope you enjoyed and gained some inspiration for your own montessori rooms...

  1. I really enjoy viewing Montessori bedrooms for babies, I wish I had looked into this before designing my baby's room a couple of years ago.

    1. Yes they are really special, don't forget you can still incorporate Montessori into your child's room no matter what age. Things like having their clothing and toys accessible to the child at an appropriate height, not having too many toys that it becomes cluttered, and hard to organise for the child (you can put away some toys that they don't use and rotate them). Having educational material and dedicating a space for their own research and study (eg. a nature table). Also if you have some artwork or even their own artwork on the walls consider displaying them lower than you normally would (at the childs height) so they can enjoy them. Hope this helped!

  2. I love the look of your blog! I need to keep this stuff in mind when I update my daughters room! Found you through the Mommy Monday blog hop!

    1. Thanks for checking out my blog and reading about Beau's room. It's really great to incorporate Montessori principles into your little ones space to help make them more independent :) Thanks again, Nikki xx

  3. This is gorgeous. I was just reading about Montessori in my psych development class! Love it...especially the low bed. Wow...

    1. The floor bed is such an important part of the bedroom as it really does give the child so much independence. There is also special bedding for the newborn too. The newborn sleeps on an womb shaped pillow called a Topponcio which is stuffed with wool. The topponcio is placed on the chestino which is the bassinet mattress. This is filled with horse hair. And the bassinet is placed on the low floor bed. This where there is a point of reference for the child as to where he sleeps. I am so glad to hear that you learnt about Montessori in your studies. I completed a bachelor of education - early childhood and never once did we learn about Montessori!

  4. Such a great room and I love the simplicity. My kids are much older now, but I found that the simplest things captured their attention the most.

  5. I've been looking for a weaning table and chair for my son. Can you share where you found yours?

    1. We drew up some designs and got them made by a local carpenter, then sanded and lacquered them ourselves. Here is a similar one I found online...

      Hope this helped,
      Nikki x
