A great part of preparing a nursery for a new baby is finding the right bedding for the crib. It is very important for parents to know what to look for in the perfect bedding since there is plenty of variety in the market today. The following are the essentials of buying bedding sets for your special bundle of joy on the way.
First, understand that you will have to buy more than one set of bedding for the crib to keep the crib hygienic. The ideal number for a start is 3 sets, so that when one set is in the laundry, the other is spread out on the crib, while the third is just for standby or even for variety. Be prepared to make this investment in baby bedding since they will last several years.
Secondly, use the Internet to look at the different designs, prices and stores selling the bedding. Keep in mind the size of the crib, the overall design theme of the nursery and the sex of the baby. There is always the option of gender neutral bedding that can suit both boys and girls in case you do not know the sex of the baby yet.
Do check that the baby bedding set is complete with pillow cases, fitted sheets, bumper, blanket and comforter. This can also give you the alternative of purchasing the individual parts of the set to create a unique bedding look and save some cash in the process.
