So I have a bonus son and was not with Darling Husband when he bought the bedding however, a few of the last questions I can answer 🙂  We have a convertible crib. So the bonus son is still technically in the crib at almost 4, since it’s being used as the toddler bed. Therefore, the sheets and comforter, still fit it.  However, a couple months ago he asked for a toy story quilt so we got that. So the sheets and comforter technically were used for over 3 years. When you think about it that’s quite a long time! The rest of it was used until he was 2. That’s when we changed it to a toddler bed.

Where’s yours from?  My mom bought it from Jc Penny’s 12 years ago

How much did it cost? $139 + shipping

How many pieces did it come with? 4

Do you like the quality? I couldn’t have been happier with the quality. It went thru three kids (friend also borrowed) and held up great. My daughter had health issues that made her throw up 8-10 daily so got washed alot!

If you’ve already had a baby, how long did you use the crib bedding for? I used it for 18-20 months

Any other comments? suggestions? One thing I wish manufactures would do different is make the quilt bigger. It doesn’t transition well to the toddler bed because it looks to short. To me some of them even look to short in the crib. This next time I am going to buy a crib set that has a matching or similar toddler bed set so it transitions better as they grow.

Any other comments? suggestions?

you dont need most of what comes in the bed sets. the bumpers are a suffocation hazard, blankets are too till they get older, fitted sheets are all you need. seriously. when my daughter was born she slept in a onesie and that was it, when it got cooler we switched to the footies. now that she is 2 she can pull the blankets off is she is hot and off her face if thats where it ends up. its a suffocation hazard to have blankets and toys and bumpers in a crib. im not trying to preach im giving you my professional opinion as a daycare worker

Buy your bedding when you know the sex of the baby ( I don’t know if you do or not!).  I found my bedding and fell in love with it, but now that I have a little girl I wish I had waited because I want it to match the rest of her room!  Another thing is bumper pads, I know a lot of people have different opinions but you do what you think is right. I used them (still do!) and I don’t regret it one bit! : )

Where’s yours from? Fisher Price

How much did it cost? $80.00

How many pieces did it come with? 4

Do you like the quality? A little rough, but it does it’s job.

If you’ve already had a baby, how long did you use the crib bedding for? Currently been used for 20 months, but will soon be passed onto baby 2.

Any other comments? suggestions?  Read up on the hazards of bumpers.  My daughter would always get a leg underneath that so we quit using them.  Also, the comforter is useless until she started dragging it around and playing on it. Like cr6zy said, you’ll basically dress your baby for the room temperature.  The bed skirt is great for hiding toys though.

LIke PP have said, most of what comes in the bedding sets is a safety hazard, so I’m not going to even bother.  I registered for crib sheets and crib skirts – that’s all you need for awhile (and even the crib skirt isn’t necessary.)  So if you’re looking to save money, maybe just forgo the set all together?

There are a ton of cute crib sheets out there!  I think I spent hours looking at all of them on the Babies R Us web site…

I’m also skipping the bedding set b/c of the price and the fact that I wouldn’t want to use most of it anyway. You’re not supposed to put any blankets in the crib, plus my friend is making me a quilt and I have tons of baby blankets if I need them. And I wanted to try breathable bumpers instead of the other kind. All the mom’s I talk to say bumpers were a must for them, but I’m still paranoid. Other than that I’ll just get some sheets.

Where’s yours from? We’re using seperate pieces, most from Target

How much did it cost? $8-20 per piece?

Do you like the quality? yes

Any other comments? suggestions? We decided to use seperate pieces for right now. I have a crib skirt to match her room and hide under the crib storage, a quilt that’s being used as a wall hanging right now, and individual fitted sheets for her crib. My child spits up a lot so we change sheets atleast twice a week, usually more, so I’d definitely hate to be attached to one set of particular sheets. Right now we mainly use plain white or pink sheets we bought at target.

Where’s yours from? Pottery Barn Kids

How much did it cost? $209 on sale

How many pieces did it come with? fitted sheet, crib skirt, quilt, bumper

Do you like the quality? Yes.

If you’ve already had a baby, how long did you use the crib bedding for?  I’m still using the crib skirt and fitted sheet.  The bumper went away within a week of him actually sleeping in the crib because I thought it restricted his view so when he woke up he couldn’t see me coming to get him and he seemed more upset when it was there.  The quilt we use for tummy time, not in the crib itself.

Any other comments? suggestions?  I also use jersey knit organic cotton sheets by Under the Nile on his crib mattress.  They don’t feel as cold to him when he is lain down after dozing off in the middle of the night so it doesn’t startle him awake as much as regular combed cotton sheets.

Most kids remain in their cribs for at least 2 years before climbing out of them, so the bedding will get a lot of use. Some will even become so attached to their first blankets, they’ll be dragging them around for years. I’d spend the money for something that ties into whatever you’re doing in the room, but something that you won’t get sick of looking at. Most baby bedding is too specific when choosing a themed one, so maybe find one more neutral that will work when you change the room. (which usually happens when they tire of all the ‘baby’ stuff). That’s why I’m not such a fan of ‘themed’ rooms.

@ItWasntMe: I agree. That’s what I say when someone has a problem with us being Team Green-we’ll use it again and it’s not irritating.LOL

I actually made a bunch of crib sheets because I couldn’t find anything that I liked that matched our color scheme. If you can sew, crib sheets are actually super easy to make and you can make them in any color or pattern you like (and it’s WAY cheaper to buy a yard of fabric than a store-bought sheet).
