Crib Bedding for Girls
Little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice, but where does it say they have to sleep in a rose wonderland with lace trimmings? (Phew!) Luckily, there are dozens of companies offering your princess a slumber haven worthy of her sweetness.
Serena & Lily: Lola
Her name was Lola, she was a … crib set to drool over. With exotic embellishments in shades of green and pink on a “pear green” background, this design is fun, yet sophisticated.
The set includes the lively Lola bumper, a tailored crib skirt in brushed canvas, and a 300-thread-count cotton sateen fitted sheet in a complementary pattern.
MiGi Girls by Bananafish: Sweet Sunshine
My older daughter’s nursery was a pink paradise. When we found out baby number two was another girl, my husband pleaded, “Please, no more pink!”
This set from style experts Michele Adams and Gia Russo, known as the MiGi Girls®, uses a delightful combination of yellows and grays, with a mixture of textures (suede, corduroy, and embroidered appliqués).
Persnickety: French Farmhouse: Melle
Looking for something completely different, yet still sophisticated? Persnickety’s® French Farmhouse Melle crib set truly embodies the essence of the French countryside. Using soft, neutral colors on a linen blend, the hand=painted design is of a vintage post card, addressed to the new grandparents, announcing Baby’s arrival. If this is just what you’re looking for, order it as early as possible as it’s custom made.
Little House by Annette Tatum: Alphabet
House Inc.’s® Little House line is full of light, airy fabrics and whimsically sweet designs. This alphabet set features a bumper with a charming letter print on the exterior and an interior of cozy pink velour. A striped crib skirt and geometric print fitted sheet complete the set. Designer Annette Tatum aims to design bedding that is both comfortable and stylish, “creating an inviting room that’s inspired, as well as inspiring.”
New Arrivals: Sprout
If you’re a fan of boys’ names for girls, then you might also see the allure of “traditional boy colors” in a girl’s nursery. This unisex design by New Arrivals® is a fantastic example of how a room sans pink can look fabulously feminine. Crisp and clean, this inviting set plays soft shades and patterns of blue and green against a white crib sheet. It’s a fresh, modern look for the little girl who defies stereotypes.
I loved dressing my daughter in colorful Zutano® prints, and was happy to see the line expand to bedding.
The crib set’s bright colors are right at home in the nursery, and the designs are playful and friendly. Both sets (the other set features elephants) have fully reversible bumpers and blankets, so you can change the look of your crib at a moment’s notice.
Skip*Hop: Flower Burst
Skip*Hop® came on the scene in 2003 with their game-changing diaper bags. And for nearly a decade, they have continued to introduce products that are a hit with babies and parents alike. Their “heirloom quality” crib bedding is no exception. This Flower Burst crib set features a cheerful floral design (which is fully embroidered on the included comforter) printed on the bumper, striped sheets, and reversible crib skirt, all in 100-percent cotton sateen.
DwellStudio: Garden Blossom
Like an inviting cup of hot cocoa, DwellStudio’s® Garden Blossom crib set is warm and welcoming. The company calls the print a “vivid, contemporary interpretation of a classic botanical print,” and I call it one of my personal favorites! And it’s not just because it’s oh-so-purdy; all DwellStudio products are formaldehyde-free, have not been treated with any known toxic substances, and use low-impact fiber-reactive, eco-friendly dyes.
BreathableBaby Universal Crib Bumper
Although they look beautiful, many parents are concerned about using a bumper in Baby’s crib.
Enter the BreathableBaby® bumper, made of a mesh-like fabric that is safe for your child to breathe through. And, like other bumpers, it will still prevent arms and legs from getting wedged in between slats.
