Some help please.

Now that we know that Baby Harris is in fact a boy, the next hurdle is figuring out how to do his nursery. It has to be cute, obviously. I've been laboring over finding a suitable bedding set, which has been very, very difficult. Why?

I am anti-airplanes, trains, bugs, farm animals, Disney characters, etc. when it comes to bedding. Unfortunately, 98% of everything I see is immediately eliminated due to my list of "anti"s.
The only animals that I wouldn't hate seeing in Baby Harris's room are elephants or zebras. Not both of them together. Yes, I realize that I am beyond picky.

Here are a few nursery sets that I don't hate. Please let me know what you think. And no, I am not crafty enough to sew the nursery set myself.

This one is from Pottery Barn kids. Note the zebras. Ben says, "Zebras have a weird vibe" but I don't know what he's talking about.

I love this one, but apparently my baby will die of SIDS or someting if I pick this one, or at least that's how I felt after talking to my mom.

Love this, very cute, but pretty pricey.

A little too animal-y for me, but cute. I would only buy the crib skirt, bumper, and possibly mobile. Too many elephants for me!

Anyway, I need some opinions. What do you like/not like?

yea, Im not an animal print mommy either! Thats why polka dots are so great! Love the last one!

I like the elephant one...where did you find it? I'd like to see if they have other cute sets?
Hope you're feeling well. I spoke to your mother-in-law at church on Sunday. She's super excited for your guys! :-) I'm sure you are too. Take care!

I totally agree with the whole no animal bright colors etc. I found that looking at the pottery barn ones gave me the best ideas. My bedding ended up not playing as crucial of a role that I thought it would since I couldn't find any I liked and in my price range. I just got a chocolate brown bumper, found sheets I liked, and my MIL made a quilt. I decorated the rest of my room so it all worked together.

Pretty much, ALL you need is the cute bumper. I love the zebra and elephant personally...very cute.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the zebra. its perfect. ps the second one has cows in it. are you cool with cows too?

Lindsey said...

Yeah the bedding thing is HARD! I was anti all the stuff you listed. I went with a color theme. Brown, blue, and green.

Honestly all you need is a cute bumper and skirt. I use a solid dark brown sheet and found a cute bumper w/ stripes and an argyle design that fit my color scheme.

good luck!

LOVE the SIDS one...but is that an option? I agree with all your dislikes. And I might be able to add a few of my own if I wanted... Let us know what you choose!

No, wait, Chrissi - I found it! Go look at my blog--I think you'll reconsider.
(Who would ever do that to a baby?):)
Let's get together sometime soon--I think a double date would be fun!
