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.
