Moms-to-be, as well as their close friends and family, will likely have to go shopping for baby bedding sets sooner or later. A baby bedding set isn’t just a crib accessory – it’s decoration and function wrapped up in a cute pampering package. If you’re planning on investing some money in a bedding set, it might as well be good. Before you go to the store, make sure you know how to buy bedding for your baby’s crib as it will be one of the main “work stations”, “living room” and “bedroom” in your nursery.
It is obvious why baby bedding sets are so popular. They are affordable and also offer ready-made decor for parents who want to have a stylish nursery. Buying them wisely, though, is what really matters.
The first thing you need to know when buying a baby bedding set is whether or not it fits in your crib. Generally, manufacturers call ‘crib bed’ what is made for standard size cribs, while the rest of the bedding is named after the type of cot it is made for, such as’ Stokke ‘,’ crib ‘,’ bunk for children ‘,’ bassinet ‘,’ portacrib ‘, etc. However, there are always exceptions to the rule, so your best bet is to measure and ask before buying.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you will need to design your own nursery as well. Getting a bedding set that clashes with the rest of the nursery design or color scheme won’t be a good idea. If possible, keep a design plan for your bedroom in mind before getting your bedding set. The simplest thing to do is to get the bedding set for the crib first and use its pattern for color and design inspiration.
Most bedding sets will include a quilt, fitted sheet, bumper, and crib skirt, also known as a dust ruffle. More elaborate bedding sets may include a few extra pieces such as diaper stacker, valance, decorative crib pillow. To furnish the whole nursery with style and class, most stores also offer matching accessories: music mobiles, laundry baskets, nursery lamps, wall decorations, clocks, toy bags, etc.
If you’d like to opt for a gender specific design, your search for a boy or girl crib bed is more focused but hardly easier as there are hundreds if not thousands of models on the market. If you don’t know your baby’s gender and would like to leave it as a surprise for birth, then gender neutral crib bedding is your option. The ‘unisex’ trend is more popular than ever, which is reflected in the wide variety of gender-neutral designs. They are of the same quality and beauty as the gender specific models and, at times, even more creative and extravagant.
Cost is also a consideration – crib bedding usually has its quality increase with price. Designer bedding sets are more expensive, but follow the trend of the day, are more artistic with new and exciting color combinations, up to current safety standards, more durable and of superior quality. Buying crib sheets is an investment and often worth the extra money.
