Baby Bedding Sets For Your Little Tot


The typical nursery is filled with teddy bears, toys and a whole lot of color. The decorations extend not only from the crib but all around the walls as well as the covers of the bed. Baby bedding sets are also one of the eye catching pieces found in the nursery. You can even design the whole room around the bedding that your baby’s crib or bed is covered with.

Baby bedding sets are one of the most practical things you can get for your baby. It gives him or her comfort when he or she is sleeping in the day or in the night. Plus, it comes as a set so you can cover the bed, the pillows and have a nice comforter to boot for the price of one!

You won’t have a hard time finding its place in the nursery since it comes with all kinds of colors and a whole array of designs to choose from.

The good thing about having a baby bedding set is the fact that you can use this for a long, long time.

Keep in mind when buying a baby bedding set is that you have to look at what materials are used to make the bedding.

If you are going to decide on buying cotton, which is one of the coolest and freshest sheets, you should make sure that they are organically grown cotton. Do not get the ones that might harm your child’s skin since they might get rashes, allergies and even sick.

If you are getting your baby a bedding set, make sure it is something that you will like for a long time. This makes sure that you do not have to spend a whole lot of money on beddings. It is also more practical if you buy by the bulk since you can get special prices when you do. Besides, you will never find yourself not needing a set of bedding for your child. Baby bedding sets are also very good gift ideas whether it’s for a baby shower,  birthday events or christening.

Getting Your Baby’s Personalized Blanket


You are a soon to be mother; aunt or sister and you are pretty excited for the coming new addition to the family tree. Of course there will be celebrations and christenings that can really make you worry about presents.

You don’t want to give just any gift because whatever happens, you want to be unique as possible. Well, why not try to get creative and gift your new baby or new niece a personalized baby blanket!

It is always a good idea to be different when it comes to giving presents. This will ensure that you are going to be remembered and it will make the occasion extra special. Also, you can put a personal stamp on the item and make sure your niece; daughter, son or sibling can have a piece that connects to you.

It’s not that difficult to get creative and original when creating a baby blanket. You don’t’ have to be an expert seamstress or be really good at stitching things. You just need to choose what type of fabric you want the blanket to be. There are different types of course you can choose from. There are cotton types which can be soft and fluffy but hardly as sturdy as the woolen type of cloth. Still, cotton is cheaper and lighter than the other.

Once you select the fabric, you can go to the textile section of your nearest mall and select a cut of cotton that has designs or in plain colors. You can even pick a color that will match the baby’s nursery.

To be even more original, you can buy a selection of dyes and then tie dye the cloth to make an array of wonderful color combinations.

Another great idea that you can do to personalize a blanket is to actually make a quilt. You can choose different kinds of things to stitch on like probably a picture or a great quote.

You can even stitch on different family members to make a collage of the whole family tree so that when the baby grows up, you can have it framed as a good reminder of everyone in the family. You can also put cartoon pictures and famous Disney characters to make it more festive.

Most people when they think “personalized” consider putting the recipient’s name on or letters of the baby’s initials. You can do that and incorporate it into the design. You can even include names of his or her siblings or cousins.

But if you want to stitch in or have the letters stitched in, you can bring it to a dressmaker or buy one of those iron-on clothing sticker to create a name across the blanket.
