First time parents.. This one is for you. There are many factors to consider when it comes to designing a nursery and picking out crib bedding. Safety, price, style, and bedding essentials are at the top of the list. The process can be overwhelming given that there are multitudes of baby bedding sets and nursery decorations. If you don't already know the color palette you want for your baby's room then start by browsing the web for nursery inspiration. Pinterest is a good place to get a well-rounded idea of the various types of design styles out there. Once you have decided upon a color(s) then you can begin searching for crib bedding. So what should you keep in mind while on the hunt for the perfect baby bedding? Most retailers offer 3 piece bedding sets, which means a bumper, crib sheet, and crib skirt are included. If you prefer a crib rail cover over bumpers that is an option too. But it doesn't stop there, to complete a nursery a few more things are needed: a blanket, a changing pad cover, an accent pillow, curtain panels, shelves, rug, storage, lamps, wall art, decor, a mobile, the list goes on and on. Don't panic yet though, all of those things can come later. Now that you have scrolled through Pinterest, I'm sure you discovered the endless design possibilities. Let's say you have narrowed it down to your top 3 and now you are ready to do some serious shopping. Price is the next area of concern. Don't go for the cheapest crib bedding you can find, many times cheap bedding equals bad quality. You want to find a happy medium between quality and price. At Caden Lane, we offer designer baby bedding made from 100% cotton and quality is guaranteed. You don't want a crib sheet that looses it's color with one wash and you don't want a fabric that pills or falls apart over the course of a few months. You want something long lasting and durable. Once you have found the perfect crib bedding you want to double check for a few things. This is where safety comes in. This is the most important guideline to follow. You want to make sure the crib sheet is tight and fitted. If you are using bumpers make sure there are ties on top and bottom to securely fasten it to the crib. Never leave anything in the crib that can potentially harm the baby while he/she is sleeping, this includes a blanket, pillow, loose sheet, etc. After you have gone through all these steps, you can now begin coordinating decor, furniture and other nursery accessories. The plus to purchasing baby bedding from Caden Lane is that we have accessories to match every set. From blanket, curtain panels, changing pad cover, and square pillow you can effortlessly carry the theme throughout the room.
