Each half-hour episode of BABY MAKES 3 follows excited young couples as they prepare to embark on the life-changing adventure of parenthood for the very first time. Not content to fall back on outdated gender stereotypes, these couples want a creative space for their new baby that fosters imagination and wonder, reflects their unique cultural backgrounds and personalities, and is flexible enough to adapt as their child grows. To help them on their journeys, the BABY MAKES 3 team shares valuable tips on safety and baby-proofing, choosing environmentally friendly materials, and creating priceless keepsakes. The team also provides step-by-step guidance on how to complete a variety of original DIY projects, large and small, transforming humdrum rooms into customized, one-of-a-kind spaces to delight parents and babies alike.

 In Season One of BABY MAKES 3, viewers will learn how to:
  • Integrate baby's room into your home's existing aesthetic
  • Incorporate family photos, traditions and homemade crafts into your d├ęcor
  • Use elements from the great outdoors to create a room that will nurture a love of nature
  • Create a day nursery for grandparents who will be helping out with childcare
  • Incorporate books as design elements that function as an introduction to a lifetime of reading
  • Create an illuminated "starlight" ceiling
  • Think beyond traditional nursery colors and patterns to create spaces that are gender-neutral and reflect your growing family's passions and values
  • Create an accent wall and install specialty lighting
  • Maximize smaller living spaces
BABY MAKES 3 is the brainchild of producer Chip Howell. "We wanted to create a design series that reflects what's important to millennials just starting a family," says Howell. "My generation is committed to sustainability, concerned with safety, and has a DIY spirit. BABY MAKES 3 helps parents-to-be find ways to incorporate their new baby into their hearts and homes in a way that expresses who they are."
