How to Choose Crib Linens
One of the most exciting activities for expecting parents is designing the perfect nursery. There are many decisions to be made when planning and decorating, but choosing the appropriate bedding for your child's crib is a matter of comfort and safety. Since newborns sleep so often, ensuring they have the best crib linens possible is crucial.
Budget & Materials
The cost to furnish your baby's crib can vary based on the type of fabric that you choose. Cotton crib linens are the most expensive and softest option, while cotton-poly blends offer comfortable fabric at an affordable price. Flannel is another common choice, though this thick fabric is often too warm for summer use.
If you have enough room in your budget, purchasing multiple sets of crib linens is a great idea, especially the fitted crib sheet. Newborn babies are messy and anything they wear or spend time on will need frequent (sometimes daily) washing. Skipping over pricey sets with extra pieces, like bumpers and comfort blankets, can allow parents to invest in higher quality or multiple sets of linens for the crib.
Picking Style & Colors
Your preference for a particular style or color of bedding might inspire your nursery's design or be based on existing decor. If you have already decorated the nursery, you'll probably be looking for a print or color that'll add the finishing touches. If you're still undecided on the theme of your kid’s room, finding the perfect crib linens might provide the creative boost needed. Opt for traditional blue or pink, go for a neutral yellow, or add a modern dash of playfulness with patterned crib linens.
