    Default obsessing over bedding

    Since Monday when we found out we were having a boy, I have been obsessing over bedding. I knew that I wanted the walls neutral. I'm going to paint a tree on the wall. Haven't dedided if it will be all in white or actually "tree colored". Going with sort of a nature feel....I adore owls, but I keep going back and forth between these. And then I also think that just green and brown bedding with animal accents in the room would work too. IDK. It's the artist in me obsessing!
    Here's the current two.

    Kind of think the target one is cutesy but the deer one has more of a classic feel. IDK.
    Thoughts?

    They are both really cute, but I really like the deer one! I'm more into the classic and elegant nurseries more than the cute cartoonish nurseries.

    I like them both but I agree, I like the deer bedding more. Both cute though.

    I like both for different reasons.

    I'm probably in the minority but I don't buy bedding sets for my LOs. Last time I registered for and received the awesome crib sheets by Cloud & Stars. They were in white so I will be reusing them. I just need to add a white breathable bumper (last one was pink). Of course, this is dependent that I get DD into a toddler bed by the time DS is ready to leave the bassinet.

    I raised my two boys with a Beatrix Potter bedding set, I had it again for Clara but that's when they started with the anti-bumper campaigns. What I think is best is to use a bedding set/bumpers only until they can move around (around 3-6 months old) and then take out the bumpers and use a breathable bumper set. Once they can move around they will sometimes get lodged up in a corner or against the crib rail and can suffocate and/or rebreathe their carbon dioxide/exhalation which isn't best. You definately need something in the crib otherwise their arms and legs go through and get stuck! We have a white breathable bumper for Clara and it looks like this one...



    I also like the Deer set!

    I know about the whole debate about bumpers. I never said I was 100% using the bumper pad. I'm still undecided honestly. I still will choose a bedding design and go with at least the crib skirt and blanket. Most sets you can buy individual pieces though I haven't looked at the deer one to make sure on that one.
    Abby used her blanket and crib skirt until we moved her to a full bed. We converted the crib to a toddler bed, so it still worked well until she was a little over 3 yrs old.

    Thankfully the set I bought can be purchased individually so I didn't get stuck with the bumper. I instead registered for a breathable bumper. I think my sister would disown me if I used a bumper seeing that my niece passed away from being suffocated by her's. If the deer set does come with the bumper and you decide to not use it, you could always use the material for decoration for the nursery like cutting up pieces of it and putting it in shadow boxes or some sort of frame. I'm sure there are all kinds of creative things you could do with it.

    Default Decided to make the bedding

    I decided to try my hand at making the bedding. I've made a fitted sheet and I'll be making a crib rail liner, a crib skirt, and a curtain. Because of bumper rumors, I've decided not to make that or the quilt. I will, however, be making a wall hanging. When I'm finished, I'll embroider the baby's birth record on it. When my little potato gets old enough for covers, hopefully it will be big enough for the baby to use as a woobie.
