I think I have finally settled on bedding for the newbie. We probably won't order it until after the first of the year since she won't be in her own room/nursery until early spring, but I really LOVE it! DD1 had green/yellow/pink bubbles bedding. DD2 has orange sherbet/lavendar jungle/zebra bedding... So, this is totally different from theirs, something I signature just for her! (Cuz let's face it... she will be getting tons of hand-me-down clothing, toys, books, etc.)
Here's the link to the bedding on Amazon. (And yes... I think I might be an Amazon-aholic!)
Okay, two of my close friends BOTH have this bedding! I've seen it in person and it's super cute!! Nice choice.
We aren't going to do bedding for this one. When she's old enough she'll take the school room (which is what we're currently using our 3rd bedroom for) and at that point I'll probably do something fun. There is aqua colored wainscoating in there right now, so I was thinking about doing a retro red and aqua theme of some sort when the time comes. Sounds crazy but I think it would work.
Red and aqua would be awesome! In fact a friend of mine from on here (you must know Jackie? October 2010, Cloth Diapering, and BW board mod?) did her baby girl's room in red and aqua based off a really cute Etsy quilt she found and fell in love with Stuff with that combo is out there!
Wendy, I love the bedding you chose...so sweet! We don't really do fancy crib bedding either, since she'll be in our room for a year. Once we move her, we'll tackle it then
We do it when we move them to the nursery around 6 months... and then normally use it until they move out of the toddler bed. We just moved DD1 out of her crib at 4 years... so I figure it will get plenty of use.
