Introduction to Baby Crib Bedding Sets

Expectant mothers, as well as their close friends and family, will probably have to go shopping for baby crib bedding sets sooner rather than later. A baby bedding set is not just a crib accessory, it is decoration and function wrapped in a cute plush package. If you’re going to invest some money in a baby bedding set, it could be a good one too. Before heading to the store, make sure you know how to buy bedding for your baby’s crib, as it will be an important “work station,” “home,” and “bedroom” in your nursery.

It’s obvious why baby bedding sets are so popular. They are convenient and also offer ready-made decor for parents who want to have a stylish nursery. However, buying them wisely is what really matters.

The first thing to know when buying a baby bedding set is whether or not it will fit your crib. Manufacturers typically call what is made for standard-size cribs ‘crib bedding’, while the rest of baby bedding is named after the type of crib it is made for, such as ‘Stokke’, ‘crib’, ‘baby bunk’, ‘bassinet’, ‘portacrib’, etc. However, there are always exceptions to the rule, so it is best to measure and ask before buying.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you will also have to design your nursery. It will not be a good idea to get a baby bedding set that conflicts with the rest of the design or color scheme of the nursery. If possible, have a plan in mind about your nursery design before you get your bedding set. The easiest thing to do is get the crib bedding set first and use its pattern to inspire the color and design.

Most bedding sets include a bedspread, fitted sheet, bumper, and crib skirt, also known as a powder ruffle. More elaborate bedding sets may include some extra pieces like diaper stacker, valance, accent pillow for crib. To outfit the entire nursery with style and class, most stores also offer matching accessories: musical mobiles, laundry baskets, nursery lamps, wall art, clocks, toy bags, etc.

If you want to go for a gender specific design, then your search for boy’s or girl’s crib bedding is more specific, but hardly easier as there are hundreds, if not thousands, of designs on the market. If you don’t know the gender of your child and would like to leave it as a birth surprise, then gender neutral crib bedding is your choice. 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 genre-specific designs, and sometimes even more creative and whimsical.

Cost is also a consideration – crib bedding will generally increase in quality with price. Designer bedding sets are more expensive, but follow the trend of the day, they are more artistic with exciting new color combinations, up to current safety standards, more durable and higher quality. Buying crib bedding is an investment and is often worth the extra buck.

Happy shopping!
