When choosing bedding for your child, consider the size of your baby's crib or bassinet, your child's age and your nursery theme. This will also help you pick out nursery decor, such as mobiles, rugs, hampers and wall art.
Most baby bedding is designed to fit a standard-size crib mattress, which is the same size used for toddler beds. However, bassinets, round cribs, Moses baskets and portable cribs will need differently sized sheets and blankets, as well as mattresses.
Crib bedding sets are practical options that often include crib skirts and bumpers. But bumpers can be dangerous for mobile infants, so if you choose to use a bumper for an infant who can move, choose a breathable mesh bumper. Particularly for young babies, prepare for diaper leaks by stocking up on sheets, and consider getting a waterproof pad that you can put over the mattress.
Finally, consider the color scheme and theme that you want for your nursery. Good themes for babies' rooms include characters, animals and places such as the jungle or the sea. For a coordinated look, try to get bedding and decor that complements your nursery furniture.
