Baby Bedding Buying Guide

Baby bedding buying decisions can be very easy and fun. Whether you are shopping for a baby girl or baby boy, start by buying the nursery essentials. First things first, your new baby needs a comfortable place to sleep. This means purchasing crib sheets, baby blankets, or combining both into a crib set.

step one crib sheets
Choose a comfortable blanket that swaddles your baby. This will help baby feel safe and secure and promote sleep, even when you take your little one out and about.

Crib mattresses are usually a standard size, so finding sheets to fit are easy. Already have a special hand-made quilt from grandma? Find crib sheets in all the colors of the rainbow to fit with any baby bedding you may already have. The crib sheets section is also a good place to start if you want to put together your nursery bedding ensemble, rather than buy a complete set.

step two baby blankets

Once your crib sheets are chosen, you can go directly to the baby blankets section. Babies are used to being in the womb, so think cozy and warm when making your choice. Blankets are available in a wide variety of patterns and solids, and the color selection is broad enough that you can surely find the right design to go with the motif of any baby’s room. Baby blankets and quilts are the one piece of baby bedding that will be utilized more than any other. Your baby’s blanket will go with you and your little one everywhere.

Sheets and blankets should be considered as bedding that will need to be replaced, so have backups available. Baby’s drool, throw-up, and mess their diapers, all of which can happen in the crib, on the sheets, and on the blanket. Be prepared. Have spare crib sheets and blankets, and even a spare crib bumper. Essentials are, essential!

step three crib sets

If you are shopping for the baby’s very first bedding, start with a crib set, as this will cover all the essentials, and save extra expense and time on buying items separately. Bedding.com offers a diverse selection of colorful and fun crib sets from the leading brands in baby bedding. As fun as it is to shop for cute designs, keep in mind that your new baby needs comfort, protection, and warmth. Making baby comfortable means more sleep for both baby and parents. A typical baby bedding set includes a fitted sheet, a crib blanket, and crib bumper. Everything else is nice to have, and adds to the décor, but doesn’t impact the comfort and safety of the baby.

step four accessories

One of the best parts about welcoming a baby into your home is designing the perfect nursery. Anchor your design plans around the crib bedding first, then find matching accessories like diaper stackers, changing pads, lamp shades, wall hangings, window coverings, and rugs.

Baby bedding crib sets are all offered with matching and coordinating accessories. This makes it easy to buy the minimum crib set, or just the crib sheet and baby blanket now, and accessories as your budget allows, or as your decorating desire increases.

Matching mommy’s essentials to the baby’s essentials should be considered, for two reasons. The first is that it looks good when the diaper bag, changing pad cover, diaper stacker, and other accessories are all coordinating colors and designs. The second reason is that it affords one the ability to easily provide gift ideas to friends and family.
