Choosing Crib Bedding For Your Baby? - Articles Surfing
If you're expecting a new arrival in your family, you already know there's plenty to do in preparation. One of the most important is getting the nursery ready so your newborn will have a cozy, safe, and pleasant place to sleep once he or she returns from the hospital. That means you'll need to go shopping for crib bedding. Below are some tips that can help you choose the right crib bedding for you new bundle of you.
Setting a Budget
As you may have already experienced, getting ready for that baby isn't going to be cheap. That's one of the reasons baby showers were invented. That means you need to decide in advance how much you can afford to spend and stick to that budget. Otherwise you may end up deep in debt or without all of the necessities your little one is going to need.
Crib bedding will be one of the bigger costs on your budget but it can also be one of the more flexible ones. Generally, a quality crib bedding set could cost from around $400 up to more than $800. However, if you don't want to purchase an entire set at once because of budget limitations you could choose to buy the pieces one at a time or to leave out some of the less important crib bedding accessories.
Match the D'cor
If you've already started decorating the rest of the nursery, then the crib bedding you choose will need to match what is already there quite nicely. After all, you do want to create a visually appealing space for your baby. Sure, he or she may not appreciate it now but that crib bedding will probably be used at least until your baby turns three. That means he or she will definitely have some time to appreciate all of your hard work.
Another idea is to pick the crib bedding before you do any type of decorations. That way you can match the rest of the d'cor to the crib bedding instead of vice versa.
While any color crib bedding is appropriate for any gender of baby, most people still adhere to those classic color stereotypes. That means if you are having a little girl you probably won't be going for blue crib bedding. What do you do if you don't know or have chosen not to know the gender of your baby before birth?
One answer is to choose so-called gender neutral colors for the crib bedding, such as green or yellow. These are both very tranquil colors to consider and look beautiful in any nursery. Choosing a print or pattern that incorporates multiple colors is also a good idea.
Choosing a Theme
Some parents decide to decorate their nurseries in a theme. For example, you could choose a jungle look and even paint a jungle mural on one of the walls. In that case, you might want crib bedding, such as the Doodlefish Safari set from Pure & Honest Kids, that matches your theme.
