I only spent about $20 bucks, and I only bought 3 crib sheets instead of a whole set.  I think it depends on what you’ll be using the bedding set for (some people use the quilt and bumper for wall hanging or decorations, for example), but in my experience, the crib bedding is pretty much worn out after the first year or two, anyway.  Our daughter is 1.5, and it’s a good thing we’re moving her to a toddler bed and had to buy her new bedding, anyway, because her crib sheets really need to be replaced!

I bought a couple of super cute sheets from PotteryBarn (using points from a cc) I think I spent $45 there.  Bought 2 inexpensive sheets from Tar-jey ($20)  Gifted a breathable bumper and thats it.  Bed sets are super expensive ( I thought) just no worth it to me. I spent that money on other decorative items around the nursery to jazz things up.  🙂

Our set was $190 in the store, but only $130 on Amazon!!! 

ETA: I should add that we are getting additional pieces (extra valences, etc.) and additional crib sheets.  I guess the “real” total will be more like $230.

I am having custom bedding made on Etsy, it will be 2 crib sheets, a crib skirt, 2 change pad covers, 1 throw pillow (for the rocker) a boppy cover, a quilt and curtains. It will be about $380 dollars for everything including shipping (which I think isn’t too bad for everything).

I’m not doing sets. I’m not really a matchy matchy kinda person.

So just a couple individual sheets, waterproof mattress covers, ultimate crib sheets, mesh bumper, etc.

Sheets are ranging in the $10-$15 range, sateen, cotton, flannel etc.

We’re only doing sheets, so our bedding cost is pretty cheap.

I’m thinking of spending the money (like up to $100) for a custom crib skirt from Etsy, since I think that is the piece that will have the greatest visual appeal.  Then I’ll just get cheap single-colored crib sheets that match (or contrast) with the skirt.  We’re not going to have bumpers, pillows, or quilts b/c of the suffocation hazard, although I’ll probably get a simple white or off-white breathable bumper to put on the crib once baby starts rolling around at night.

I bought a queen sized bedding set that I liked for $39 (Black Friday sale) and will make 2 fitted sheets, crib skirt, window valances and a throw quilt (for the floor for tummy time) out of it.  These days you are only supposed to use the sheets and skirt anyway that the sets seem to be a HUGE waste of money.

We paid between 350-400 for our 4 piece crib set (sheet, bumper, skirt, blanket). My little guy is a year and a half now, so I can’t remember the exact price.

This is the set: http://www.livingincomfort.com/images/medium/bk28066-pic.jpg

I also have a 9 year old son…no idea what I paid for his set back in ’02 lol.
