Choosing your Baby Bedding!

Now that you have picked out the nursery furniture it is time to decide on the perfect bedding to go with baby's new crib! There are so many things to think about when choosing the baby bedding! Should you choose cotton or something really soft like minky fabric, or what about going organic? Also, what is now considered safe baby bedding? The American Academy of Pediatrics is suggesting that things such as crib bumpers, crib comforters, and sleep positioners should not be used. So what do you need and what can you have?

You will need crib sheets, and they need to be fitted! Weather you pick cotton, flannel, fleece, or organic you need to make sure they fit the crib mattress nice and snug! Now that crib bumpers are not considered safe, there are some wonderful bedding companies that are sprucing up their crib sheets to make up for the missing bumper. One company, which we are thrilled to work with, New Arrivals Inc., has created bumperless crib sheets. They are a great solution to not having a bumper, with coordinating fabrics on the top and sides of the sheet they will surely look so sweet in any nursery. 

Crib skirts are not a necessity but can really add flavor and style to any nursery. There are many different styles and fabrics you can choose when deciding on a crib skirt; you could go with a ruffled skirt, or straight skirt, or maybe a pleat. You can coordinate it with the décor in the nursery to give the nursery that extra touch of something special. 

While they may not be suggested, crib bumpers are still being marketed and sold in sets as well as alone every day. If you decide that you are going to go with a bumper, you should think about keeping away from pillow like bumpers and go with a mesh style bumper that has 12 to 16 total ties and the ties should be between 7 to 9 inches long. 

Baby comforters should not be used in the crib under any circumstance! You may still use the comforter as decoration for the nursery by hanging it on the wall, draping it over the rocker, or even draping it over the crib as long as you put it away when baby is sleeping in the crib. 

No matter what you choose or decide to go with just remember that choosing your baby bedding should be fun! This is one of the best times of your life, so have fun with it and don’t get overwhelmed! We have sold some amazing baby bedding from some wonderful companies. We have recently been nominated for a “she knows” parenting award for our Strawberry Fields baby bedding which is such an honor!
