Ok, do most people get this? I’ve been baby hunting like crazy and although it looks nice, I can’t fathom putting on my registery or buying it myself bedding for the crib that is like $200. Ive been to a ton of sites online and of course babies r us and can’t believe the price for bedding sets. I’m not talking about the sheets, but like the little comforter, crib skirt..the decortaive stuff. I mean can I just buy the plain ole sheets and a nice crib skirt a call it a day?

Yes. Your child is going to spit up all over the blankets and sheets, and possibly worse if their diaper springs a leak in the middle of the night. You end up having to change their bedsheet about every other day. It is NOT WORTH IT to put the fancy bedding on the bed. My daughter has a beautiful crib skirt, but that’s the only “nice” thing on the bed- otherwise it’s just plain old white crib sheets and protective mattress pads. They don’t even use the blankets for like 2 years because of the risk of smothering, and the same goes for the bumper pads. Just stick to plain basic bedding and save the money to decorate the rest of the nursery!

We just bought plain crib sheets: no bumber, no quilt, and no bed skirt. We don’t even use a mattress protector, since our mattress is waterproof. We’ll wait to buy a set until Addie is big enough for the toddler bed.

We ended up purchasing a 10 piece Pam Grace bedding set. It retails for $100 or less and comes with almost everything you’ll want or need!
LOVE IT. Truly. We almost went with a 4 piece set from BRU, but it cost almost $250 for the same amount of stuff as the Pam Grace set. Plus the Pam Grace brand is well made, easily washed, and the mobile has been very reliable (a problem with other brands I’ve read in online reviews).
If you want something cutesy but don’t want to overspend (or over-register) my suggestion is this brand.
(We went with this one: )

Sounds good to me. I made a quilt for the baby and am making a skirt. Just registered for sheets. There are numerous things for babies that seem ridiculously priced…
