Choosing bedding for your baby or toddler can be fun. Making a list will help keep you focused. It is easy to fall in love with cute items. The list will keep them on the shelf and out of your basket. Watch for bargains on the things you need.
Baby Bedding Sets – Sheets
Check the size you wrote for the baby bedding sets, to be sure the sheets you pick will fit. Babies wiggle and scoot, making the sheet come undone if it is the wrong size. Be sure to get soft sheets for baby's tender skin, such as flannel or linen. Cotton sheets should be at least 300 thread count. Read the label of each sheet to be certain it is machine washable and no fibers are included that can cause a rash. Choose solid colors, like yellow, or kitty and puppy patterns. Toddlers might prefer trucks or princes's scenes. A top sheet, such as used in youth or adult bed, is not needed.
Bassinet and Crib Bumpers For Baby Bedding Sets
Babies and toddlers seldom are still, even when they sleep. When they are awake, they might roll or crawl around the crib or bassinet. Baby bumpers can be bought to fit either baby bed. They keep the baby from hurting his head, arms, or legs when hitting the front, back, or sides of the bed. Bumpers line the inside frame of the crib. Fasten them tightly. The best baby bumpers are soft plastic. They can be wiped off quickly with a damp sponge and cleaner. They come in solid colors, but decorations are cuter and add to the décor.
Quilts and Blankets – Baby Bedding Sets
Your baby will like soft flannel receiving blankets. They are cuddly, and just right for baby's size. White ones with designs like ducks, rainbows, and blocks are cute. Also get some in yellow, pink, green, and blue, with or without patterns. They show stains less than the white ones. Tuck the little one up just right with the warm blanket. Baby blankets are thicker. They might be lined with satin or other material to form a soft edge or be a knitted cotton blanket. Babies like to nibble on the edge, so be sure there is nothing that might affect your child. Quilts are padded and might be too warm to use, at times. They add style to the bed and can be removed while baby naps. Lovely Afghans are warm and favorite covers for the baby or toddler.
Pillows and covers – Baby Bedding Sets
A small inch-thick pillow is perfect for baby. Don't make it too fluffy; the firm is better. Even toddlers like to have something to cuddle to. A small cushion is just the thing. Buy or make covers out of terry cloth, jersey, or flannel. For decoration, look for linen and lace, with lots of ruffles. Daffodil and sunshine yellow seem to be the most popular colors for the washable, darling cases.
Baby Bedding Sets
Packaged baby bedding sets offer a package that matches, and giving more baby bedding sets for less money. It is nice to get one or two sets. Fill in with things baby uses more often, such as receiving blankets, sheets, and pillow covers. Perhaps a bassinet or crib skirt will be part of the package, making a more beautiful place for baby's nap.
