7 Pieces of Baby Bedding to Get Before Your Little One Arrives

When it comes to baby bedding, there are many different pieces you can choose to make your little one’s nursery complete. From sheets to blankets to changing pads, these are definitely items you want to make sure you have before the baby arrives. They are also great items to add to a baby registry! Fortunately, picking out baby bedding is a lot of fun. There are so many colors and designs to choose from to make your baby’s nursery truly unique.

 

Crib Sheets 

When picking out crib sheets, first determine what fabric you want. Cotton, muslin, and linen are all good fabric options for crib sheets. You will want to make sure that the fabric you choose is high quality so that it won’t irritate your baby’s skin. Don’t worry about sizing because most crib sheets come in the standard crib size of 28” x 52”. Next comes the fun part: picking out the colors and design of the sheets!

 

Baby Blankets

Baby blankets are another nursery must-have! You will want something soft to keep your baby warm as they snuggle up in your arms. One choice you will have to make is about the backing of the blanket - whether it is flannel, minky, or Sherpa. A wonderful addition to the blanket is to get your baby’s initials monogrammed on the fabric. When the blanket is not in use, it makes for a great nursery décor item. You can match the blanket to the crib sheets or pick something completely new.

 

Nursery Pillows

 Nursery pillows are perfect to put in the rocking chair where you will spend a lot of time holding your baby. The pillow provides décor for the room and a comfortable place for the mom to rest their back! Pick your favorite color, design, and size. In addition, you can get the pillow monogrammed with your baby’s initials.

 

Crib Rail Covers

 Crib rail covers are functional, but they can also be cute and match the crib bedding. These rail protectors prevent babies from chewing on the crib. You can get the covers for the short and long sides of the crib. They come in many different colors and styles and can be monogrammed as well.

 

Crib Skirts

 Crib skirts are a great way to bring the look of the nursery together. Match the skirt with the other bedding items to create a cohesive look. The skirts are 17” long and have split corners for easy placement.

 

Changing Pad Covers

 The matching fun doesn’t have to stop with the bedding, blankets, and pillows! Invest in a cute pad cover for the baby’s changing table. It is a good idea for moms to order a few different changing pads so that when one is in the wash, there is still another available to use. The changing pad covers are 17” x 35” and come in all sorts of colors and styles. The pads contain elastic trim to make sure the fit on the changing pad is secure and snug.

 

Decorating the nursery is one of the most exciting things a pregnant mom gets to do while they wait for their baby to arrive. Have fun picking out colors, patterns, and styles for all the bedding and fabrics in the nursery. If you don’t know the gender of your baby yet, there are plenty of gender-neutral colors and styles to pick from. Whether you go shopping yourself or add these items to your registry, they are must-haves before the baby is born.
