New babies bring joy into our lives. As Eda LeShan, writer, television host, and educator, once said, “A new baby is like the beginning of all things — wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.”


Along with joy, babies bring challenges as well. For some families, a new baby means less space for the other people in the house. And less space has these parents dreaming of a bigger home to accommodate their growing family.


Questions to Ask Yourself

When searching for a new house to make room for your newest family member, below are some questions to ask yourself:


  • If move before the baby arrives, will the house be ready in time?
  • Will the baby sleep in my room or have its own room?
  • If the baby will have its own room, how far will that room be from my room?
  • Will the new baby eventually share a room with a sibling, or always have his or her own room?


Moving BEFORE the Baby Comes

Along with a new baby comes changes. Moving is a big enough change by itself. Trying to move out of your current home and also set up your new house with a brand-new baby could make the transition even harder. Because of this, below are some reasons why you should move before the baby comes:


  • Getting baby’s room ready once, not twice — Like many parents, you want to have the baby’s room ready before he or she arrives. Moving after the baby is born means you’ll have to get a room ready now and then do it again once you move.
  • Forces you to declutter — Moving before the baby is born forces you to sort through all of your belongings and ask yourself whether you want to keep them. If you move before baby comes, you’ll have already cleared out and decluttered, making more room for the baby (and all the new baby stuff).
  • Gives mom time to recover — As a mother recovering from pregnancy, wouldn’t you prefer being able to recover without an impending move hanging over your head? With your move completed, you can recover in peace and relax in your new home.
  • Being settled — Probably the main reason to move before your new baby is born is to be settled. Being in the new house with new routines makes it easier for the baby to join the family. If you wait until after the baby is born to move, all your carefully planned structures and routines could go out the window.


Of course in the end, the choice to move into another house before your baby is born depends on your family dynamics and your needs.


Welcoming Baby into Your New Home

Expecting a new baby is thrilling, knowing the little one will add so much to your family. As an unknown author once said:


A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
