As a new parent, you’ll be spending a lot of time in your baby’s nursery: late-night feedings, diaper changes, and rocking your beautiful baby back to sleep (so you can finally catch up on your own rest!).
The nursery should be a peaceful place for all of your baby’s needs. But it should also be an expression of who you are, and there is no better time to express your love of Star Wars than when you have an entire Star Wars baby nursery to decorate!
This buying guide will help you pick everything from nursery essentials like crib sheets and humidifiers to books, mobiles, and wall decor. You’ll have the perfect room put together for your little Padawan in no time!
Now, we tried to find the super cool floating crib that The Child has in The Mandalorian, but no dice. Hopefully, you can find an equally cool crib and other furniture worthy of Your Child! Check out our guide to newborn essentials here for some great recommendations.
Once you have your nursery furniture picked out, you’ll need to find some other items to keep your baby healthy and comfortable.
Not sure where to start? Cover your bases and get all of the linens you’ll need for your baby’s crib in one convenient bedding set. We love this one from Etsy; it comes with an adorable quilt with the infamous “May the Force Be With You” quote (and adorable baby version of our favorite characters!). The set also includes a bumper that covers all four sides of the crib, along with a fitted crib sheet and three themed pillows. Can we talk about the baby Chewie with the milk bottle?! Too cute.
If you’re looking for something really special, check out CuddleMuffinsBlanket’s personalized Star Wars crib sheets! Add your little one’s name to this Star Wars pattern, and let your baby rest in the company of baby Leia, Luke, Yoda, R2, C3PO, Darth Vader, and Storm Troopers.
Already have your bumper, pillows, or sheet set picked out? There’s no such thing as too many crib sheets! The NaturalForMyBaby shop on Etsy sells fitted crib sheets with an adorable R2/BB8 design that will look perfect in your Star Wars nursery.
Rather than rely on a harsh overhead light, you can use softer lamps or night lights in the nursery to promote sleep but still allow you to easily navigate the room.
This sophisticated 3D Star Wars night light looks like it could be straight from the movies! And with three design choices (Death Star, R2-D2, and Millennium Falcon) and seven colors, this little light will allow you to easily switch up the decor in the nursery and give your baby something new to look at. As they get older, they will still appreciate this awesome decor piece!
For a truly timeless Star Wars lamp, you won’t find a better choice than Luke’s Lightsaber. This wall-mounted night light has an auto-shutoff time of 15 minutes which gives your kiddo enough time to drift off to sleep after you leave the room, but still have the comfort of a light on.
Curtains help filter light to allow your baby to sleep soundly even in the daytime, but they also help set the tone for the entire room. Make sure you measure your windows to find the correct length you’ll need.
These curtains feature classic, comic-book style sketches of Star Wars characters. Bold and bright, they measure 63” long and are machine washable, which is a plus for new parents!
Looking for blackout curtains? How about curtains that also help block out street noise? With a classic Tie Fighter pattern, these curtains will bring the whole room together while creating a serene space for your baby to sleep soundly.
Now that you’ve picked out your curtains, upgrade the tie-backs to these adorable handmade Yoda ones from Etsy! Yoda’s long arms can be tied together to hold back the curtains, and his cute cuddly face will look perfectly at home in your nursery!
Humidifiers are surprisingly crucial for maintaining your baby’s health. In dry climates, newborns are incredibly susceptible to dry skin that turns red and itchy, which can lead to infections if left unchecked.
And this is probably the coolest humidifier in existence. It’s R2-D2! But a humidifier! He is about 8” tall, and made of mold- and mildew-resistant, antimicrobial materials. I’m seriously considering getting one for my own room- this is one nursery item that will definitely stay “cool” as your child grows.
Nursery Decor (The Fun Stuff!)
Once you have all of the basics down, it’s time to decorate! Some of these items will help enhance the function of your nursery, while others are just fun and will add to the atmosphere of your Star Wars nursery.
Mobiles actually serve a pretty important purpose: they stimulate brain activity and development!
This customizable Star Wars mobile is the perfect crib accessory for your nursery since you can pick and choose your favorite characters to include. Influence your baby to stay away from the Dark Side of the Force by surrounding them with Jedi like Luke and Yoda, or go for a fun twist with some side characters like the beloved Cantina Band!
Ridiculously adorable. With handmade felt characters like Leia and an Ewok along with cute stars, this mobile is a great option for nurseries with lighter pastel color palettes.
There is seriously nothing cuter than seeing your favorite Star Wars characters as babies! From Chewie with his Millennium Falcon mobile to an infant Vader practicing choking out Storm Troopers using the Force, you need these prints for your nursery wall!
If you are going for a more minimalistic nursery, these watercolor art prints will perfectly complement your Star Wars theme without being too busy. Find them on Etsy, available in Yoda, Leia, Han Solo, or R2/BB8.
Artistic renderings of the main Star Wars characters as kids against colorful backgrounds provide cheery wall decor to brighten up your nursery. These art prints would be so cute hung over a dresser or changing table!
This is an awesome decor piece that will look just as good on the nursery wall as it would in a master bedroom or by the front door. Etsy seller BenchmarkSignGifts creates custom wooden signs of your name, carved in the classic Star Wars font! This would be a cool piece to adorn the nursery that your child will continue to enjoy as they get older. Or you could order one with your last name, and move it from the nursery to the main room as your baby ages!
Reading to your baby has been proven to help brain development and language skills. As they get older, your child will love hearing stories about the awesome characters from Star Wars that decorate their room!
Give your little one a jump start on learning the alphabet with this Star Wars ABC board book. (They’ll learn the names of Star Wars characters while they’re at it!)
This Star Wars OBI-123 board book complements the alphabet book. Teach your young Padawan learner to count with Obi-Wan!
As a Star Wars fan and a parent, you have to get this book. Seriously. A hilarious Star Wars comic-style bedtime story about the trials of Darth Vader attempting to put the twins to bed! New parents will definitely relate.
Extra Nursery Items
The Child (a.k.a Baby Yoda) has never looked more cuddly than in this cute pillow form! It would look great as a throw pillow on a rocking chair in the nursery or as an addition to your baby’s crib.
During long nights up with your newborn, you’ll want a cozy blanket to snuggle under as you rock your baby (and probably drift off to sleep yourself). This soft fleece blanket features a cute print of The Child, and it’s machine washable.
The amount of waste produced by your newborn in their first months of life will be, frankly, astounding! Make the chore of taking out the trash a little more enjoyable with this R2-D2 wastebasket.
Wooden initial letters are a popular decor trend right now, and they’ll look great on top of a dresser in your Star Wars nursery. You can choose your letters and then specify which character design you want- pick from Yoda, R2D2, Han Solo, Darth Vader, or Obi-Wan.
Still feel like your nursery is missing something? Tie everything together with this beautiful galaxy rug. Choose from 12 different designs featuring starry skies and stunning nebulas.
No Star Wars nursery would be complete without these incredible light switch cover plates. The perfect decor item to showcase Han’s handsome face, frozen in carbonite.
