Choosing Baby Bedding Sets

When you have a baby, your whole life changes. You always want the best of everything for your child, from nonmaterial things like safety and education to material items like food and comfort. Bedding is no different; everyone wants their baby bedding to be comfortable for their child, and of course pose no health or safety risks. It can be hard to determine which baby or toddler bedding is best for your youngster.

Obviously, one of the first concerns is safety. You always want to ensure that your child will be safe at all costs. The American Academy of Pediatrics generally recommends that all a newborn baby needs in its crib is a mattress and a crib sheet. Other types of baby crib bedding can be hazardous to young babies, increasing the risk of entrapment, strangulation, and suffocation.

As babies get older, you may decide to buy more bedding. After you are sure that the bedding you are considering is safe, you will probably consider design. Many companies specifically cater to the different genders. For example, they make baby boy bedding in “boy” colors and patterns, such as trucks, camouflage, etc. Similarly, baby girl bedding is sold in “girl” colors and patterns, often heavily relying on pink and purple in the color schemes. Of course, they make unisex bedding as well, and it is up to you to decide how elaborate you would like your child’s bedding to be.

There are many places to buy baby bedding. Many department stores as well as baby specialty stores offer it for sale. For a wider selection and lower prices, you may choose to shop online. Amazon.com has several baby bedding sets to choose from; the ones listed below are certainly not the only choices available.

The Circo ABC/123 set is one of the most affordable options available. Currently, it is priced under $30 on Amazon, and it is eligible for free shipping. It comes as a three-piece set, containing a quilt, fitted sheet, and bumper and is made of polyester and cotton. Those who have bought it are happy with it for the most part, as long as they were realistic with their expectations to begin with. Though it will not win any awards for most luxurious bedding, it come in a design neutral enough to be suitable for boys and girls and certainly serves its purpose. Even if you do not want it for your child’s primary bedding, it is a great backup set to have on hand.

Carter’s is a well-known name in the world of baby products. Therefore, it is not surprising that they have bedding featured on Amazon. Although the four piece Carter’s Tall Tales set was originally priced at about $150, it is now listed on Amazon for just under $100. Featuring an adorable giraffe print, this set is also suitable for both boys and girls, just as the previous set was. Additionally, it features products made of polyester and cotton. In addition to the three items that the previous set contained, this one also has a dust ruffle.

Another choice available on Amazon is the Sophia five-piece crib bedding set. This set is significantly more expensive than the other two, costing about $260. For this extra money, you receive the items mentioned in the four-piece set, plus a decorative pillow that may be personalized with your baby’s name. You also increase the material quality, as this set is made of 100% cotton rather than a cotton polyester mix. Another distinction to note is that this set is much more suitable for girls, though there are sets of similar quality and price available for boys on Amazon. Ultimately, you will have to weigh the merits of these and numerous other sets to determine which is best for your little one.
