Shoudld I have a baby sleep positioner in addition to a crib mattress?

Baby Sleep Positioner

You've chosen the floral decor for your nursery baby bedding. You got a great price when you shopped for that English countryside discount baby bedding. Now, you think, you can afford to put a little more money into a crib mattress for your infant bedding ensemble. In addition to the crib mattress, a trend in unique baby bedding involves a baby sleep positioner.

While a Secure Sleeper won't come with your average baby bedding set, it's worth buying. The pillow foam molds to the shape of the baby's head and supports the weight. The adjustable side supports keep your precious angel in place so she sleeps warmly and securely under the soft merino baby bedding blanket or down comforter you bought. Best of all, the sleep positioner will work with your baby bedding set. Now you can relax and watch your baby play with the animal mobile you bought her as she stays safe and happy in her secure, comfy infant bedding.

   
What kind of sheets do I need for my baby's nursery?

Baby Bedding Sheets

Your baby isn't even born and already you're cooing over your Moses basket and the new crib. But as you're choosing unique baby bedding such as that Sozo Jungle Land infant bedding set, make sure you don't overlook the most important part of your baby bedding--the sheet!

A crib sheet for your jungle baby bedding set should always be a fitted sheet. You don't want the sheet to slip--your baby could have trouble breathing if she's tangled up in infant bedding that isn't secure. Deep pockets will add to the comfort and warmth. Get a fitted sheet for custom or discount baby bedding, and you can look forward to the normal joys and worries that come with your precious baby's arrival.

   
What are some unique storybook baby bedding sets?

Storybook Baby Bedding

Before your baby can read a word, you want him to learn the magic of books. Unique baby bedding helps you give your child the gift of loving storybooks. You don't have to just choose Disney infant bedding. We like:

  • A Nutbrown Hare baby bedding set (from GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU)
  • A Hopping Hare baby bedding set (from GUESS HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU)
  • Winnie The Pooh baby bedding set--A.A. Milne, not Disney version
  • Paddington Bear baby bedding set
  • Raffles Giraffe baby bedding set
  • Princess and the Pea baby bedding set
  • Story Book Baby Crib Bedding Set

At bedtime, when your little one is content in her discount baby bedding, you can invent stories about the bears, giraffes (should that be giraffles?) and princesses that decorate the unique baby bedding you've chosen. That way, you'll bond with baby, and be happy when he recognizes Pooh on the cover of the books you read to him. A love of reading makes unique baby bedding worth any cost.

   
I don't like my nursery bedding options, can I customize baby bedding?

Custom Baby Bedding

You've looked at all the baby bedding options and you know you want a fleece-lined comforter in a striped print, but you can't find the exact pattern. Do you give up your fleece dream?

If you're not restricted to discount baby bedding and want unique baby bedding, some infant and toddler shops will let you choose the fabric, color and pattern. A custom infant bedding caution: You'll probably have to work with the available stock of fabric samples, but baby bedding set retailers have a bewildering array of choices. Before you place your custom baby bedding order, look for fabric samples of what you want, and test out the fabric on your baby's crib.

Does it look or feel too bulky? Too loud? Too overwhelming? If so, search for a similar option the retailer offers, and ask for fabric swatches. Test and re-test until you have the custom baby bedding ensemble you want. Make sure it provides the most comfort to your baby. If you can't buy a striped fleece comforter, try a light fleece baby blanket. Your baby might end up sleeping in it. Already, you share the same tastes--you're going to get along fine.

   
How do I choose crib bumpers?

Baby Bedding Crib Bumpers

When you were pregnant, your baby did somersaults like an Olympic athlete. He still does. You want him to move without getting his little head or fingers caught. Your baby bedding set should come with a crib bumper to cushion the sides--but your baby kicked off his baby blanket.

Can you buy unique baby bedding with a customizable baby crib bumper? A baby crib bumper in discount baby bedding usually comes in different colors such as pink/blue, pink with blue stars or blue with pink stars. The trend now is for more tailored, durable infant bedding that can resist the force of your baby's pole-vaults and backflips.

Usually bumpers are made of poly cotton, but opt for foam-filled bumpers so that the fabric bounces back. Like foam pillows, foam bumpers will have to be replaced, but by then, your baby will be out of his baby bedding and onto the floor doing a handstand!

   

Choosing Safe and Practical Crib Bedding for Infants

Preparing for the arrival of a new baby is exciting, although sometimes stressful. New parents often worry about getting all the right supplies. Choosing appropriate crib bedding can be confusing and frustrating with all the different choices. Parents and family members often choose crib bedding because it is cute or matches the room decoration; however, cute does not always mean safe or practical.

Infants spit up, drool and leak through diapers. Crib bedding needs to be both absorbent and safe for sleeping infants. Tight fitting cotton and cotton blends provide the necessary absorbency and prevent the crib bedding from bunching up around the infant. Stretchy or fleece fabrics can be dangerous since they do not provide a snug fit.

Many companies sell additional crib items that are unnecessary for infants. When you are choosing crib bedding, choose only the items necessary – a crib sheet and a simple blanket. For the infant’s safety, choose crib bedding based on its safety and usefulness rather than cuteness. Avoid crib bedding that could bunch up around the infant such as pillows, puffy blankets and crib bumpers.
