So I just started looking online to get some ideas and also figure out how much to budget for a nursery and was wondering what are some of the best stores for nursery furniture?
Also if anyone wants to share what a reasonable budget for the following items that would be great:
Crib + Mattress
Rocker + Ottaman

It isn’t a hugely popular choice, but I am extremely happy with the furniture we bought for our LO’s room from Ikea.
We got Crib and Mattress (as a gift but I am estimating what it totalled), and really long dresser (that we will put a change pad on) for about $600. We ended up going with a pretty expensive modern rocker/ottoman as a trade-off (because we have wanted it for years, and after LO is older it will go in our living room).
Our total room budget (all furniture, linens, paint and decor) is $2500 (and I will be quite close to, but below that number if my estimates are right).

our mattress cost about $80 for a sealy ultra firm mattress from walmart
our crib came as part of a set of crib, dresser changing table, it was $199 on sale from walmart at that time.
we didnt buy a glider or rocker yet but again walmart and target often have better prices than babies r us, even for the same name brands

Thanks girls, I didn’t think of Ikea or Walmart.
I had just peaked at Target and Babies R Us. Luckily my parents are giving us $1,000 towards to nursery so that should help out a lot.

We bought our crib, changer and dresser from target for $600 and then we went to Macy’s furniture to find a big, comfortable leather glider/recliner on sale for $230
I’m not sure if you have one of these near you, but some friends of mine got really good deals on their nursery sets at Burlington Coat Factory. It sounds weird but they have a big baby section with really good prices.
