Have you looked at other stores like Sears or JC Penny or Marshalls, etc.  Maybe even try Ebay?

That sucks you can’t buy the pieces seprate but the set sounds nice.

I bought an adorable 4 piece set at Target…it was on sale for $55. It was a comforter, fleece blanket, crib sheet and dust ruffle.

Honestly all you need is a fitted sheet for a baby that is it. For an infant all should be in the crib is the fitted sheet and the baby.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  If you are looking to have the fitted sheet match everything, you will need more than one. The more you effort you put into coordinating, the more likely the baby will pee all over it the second you put him down.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  Oh I agree but unfortunately a lot of that nice stuff tends to be a waste of money. I know for my son’s crib. We got the bedding from craigslist (originally looked at the crib she was selling but was a drop down and we said no thanks) so she sold us the bedding. It had a crib sheet, dust ruffle and bumpers and comforter. The only thing we used was the dust ruffle (the crib we got has a drawer underneath it) and the crib sheet.  I bought about 3 other crib sheets. The bumpers and comforter have never been used by us. 

Little boy has this awesome blanket that he adores and a little blanket he adores also that he drags around.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  have you tried babysupermall.com? We got our set there. They had 2 different options (with bumper and other extras) for most patterns.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  I have a similar issue where the set I love is 13 pieces and I’ll use maybe 4 of them. I still want those things though, so I’m going to register for the set and a few extra fitted sheets and choose what I want to keep from the set and offer the rest on kijiji or craigslist or a local mothers’ buy and sell group or even a yard sale. I’m sure the diaper bag and similar items will sell easily.

DH nearly DIED while we were looking at infant bedding today. There’s no way I was buying infant bedding, but he didn’t know how expensive it was. When he saw the prices, he was BAFFLED!

@ExcitedScaredBee:  I find that baby items are often pushed on moms. If you really want it well suck it up and buy it. I understand the need to cover the junk tho.

 I agree with what @Sassygrn:   said, all of the extras (bumpers etc.) become useless after a while. My DS was always tied up in his and his head would still bump into the rails above the bumper when he rolled over. 

When I had my DD (first child) I went mad with baby items!! After she was born her poop got on everything (she wore expensive disposables and then cloth but it still got out). If it wasn’t poop, it was puke. As soon as the crib was nicely made up, she would mess it up. Same thing when she was nicely dressed (but it is still fun to dress up little girls). For my son, his thing was peeing all over.

@ExcitedScaredBee:  Are you really having trouble finding gray?  Its everywhere!  I got some great stuff from Pottery Barn Kids in gray.  Check out Layla Grace or Amazon.  Tons of gray bedding!
