Your baby will spend a great deal of time in her nursery during the first few years, so choose a baby crib or toddler bed carefully. Youll find cribs in different styles, made from a variety of materials, and offered in a huge selection of colors and finishes.
Consider the following options to determine which crib, or combination of infant crib bedding, will best meet your familys needs over time.
1)Baby bassinets: Enjoy the convenience of a bassinet (or Moses basket), which youll move from place to place for the first three or four months of your babys life. Most bassinets feature a hood and an oval sleep area.
2)Baby cradles: Rock your baby to sleep by placing a cradle (a small bed) near your bed for the first few months.
3)Canopy cribs: Make a fashion statement in your nursery with a canopy crib equipped with posts and a frame for securing a fabric canopy.
4)Co-sleeper cribs: Co-sleepers function as an extension to a traditional bed, giving the baby his own safe space while enabling parents to easily comfort or feed baby during the night.
5)Convertible cribs: Save some money in the long run by getting a convertible crib, which will convert to a toddler bed, and possibly also into a twin bed later, for use throughout childhood.
6)Portable cribs: Add a fordable portable crib (or porta crib) to your nursery list to make traveling with your baby easier.
7)Standard Cribs: Standard cribs may have one or two drop sides for placing baby inside. Get double drop sides for more versatility. The release mechanism for the drop sides may be metal rods, trigger releases, or knee releases.
Whether you get a standard or convertible crib for your nursery, youll also need to equip the crib with a standard 52 x 27-inch mattress. Many options are available, including both foam mattress and innerspring mattress. For maximum safety, however, be sure to select a firm mattress.
Toddler beds and Infant Crib Bedding:
Transition your child from the crib to a bed with a toddler bed. Toddler beds are set lower to the ground, use a standard size crib mattress, and can be found in fun styles including princess beds, fire truck beds, and the ever popular race car bed.
Essential Twin Baby Bedding and Furniture:
Our large selection of nursery furniture includes all of the most popular brands, including Carters, South Shore, Corsican, Dutalier, Kolcraft, and Storkraft.
1)Baby changing tables: Create a safe diapering and changing area in your nursery with a changing table and changing table pad. A well-designed changing table holds the supplies you need to care for the baby at diaper-changing time. Get a changing table with dresser drawers if you like the idea of using it when your baby no longer needs diapers.
2)Dressers: Choose a dresser that meets your needs for storing and organizing clothing, diapers, and baby supplies, or maybe even toys and books.
3)Baby furniture sets: Achieve the look of a coordinated nursery with a furniture set (often listed as combos or combinations), which offer similarly designed changing tables, dressers, and other pieces.
4)Rockers, gliders: Get a cozy glider rocker with an ottoman and cushioned armrests to lull your baby to sleep. Gliders come in a wide variety of finishes and upholstery styles to meet your decorative toddler bed bedding needs (including frog baby bedding) .
