How To Choose Crib Bedding

You are preparing the nursery, you have picked the colour,  found the perfect decor for the walls and now must decide on which crib bedding is the best for your baby and works with your budget.

1)  One of the most important parts of crib bedding is the mattress.  While we may prefer a soft and springy mattress, that can be dangerous for your baby.  A firm mattress that will support your baby’s back is the ideal mattress.

2)  Decide on a budget and stick to it.  Most crib bedding manufacturers offer a wide range of bedding prices.  At petiteposh.com we offer crib bedding ranging in pricing from$2,000.00 to $200.00.  The crib bedding you choose should be affordable, comfortable and compliments your nursery decor.

3)  Whatever your budget you should make sure that all bedding that touches your baby’s skin is soft and won’t irritate. The higher the thread count the softer the sheets are against baby’s body.  For an alternative instead of high thread count sheets, 100% cotton sheets are also very soft and come standard with most crib bedding sets.

4)  A wise choice would be sheets that are machine washable.  You won’t have time to hand wash or spot treat .

5)  Decide if you want a bumper or bumperless crib bedding.  Health Canada does not recommend the use of bumper pads in cribs because they pose an entanglement, entrapment, strangulation, and suffocation hazard to infants.

When shopping for crib bedding take into consideration the amount of time the bedding will be in use.  Will your baby be moving on to a toddler bed with the same dimensions of the crib.  If that is the case you can plan on continuing to use the same bedding.

At petiteposh.com we offer a large array of crib bedding as well as matching nursery decor.  Take a look, shop around and if you love our bedding let us know!
