First, let me be clear: I understand that crib comforters are made expressly for killing babies. I understand that they along with all other blankets. soft toys, or anything else similar do not belong in a crib. It should be a barren hellscape and baby should possibly be allowed a light sleep sack-type garment to ward off a possible chill, but avoidatallcosts overheating. Okay? I get it. (Yes, there's a story and I will share it later)
So... I fell in love with this bedding from Target: DwellStudio Space. It's really squirrelly in terms of them being out of it/discontinuing it. At first I fell in love and then they said it was discontinued, then it wasn't, then today I saw it on clearance and bought everything I could find. I love it, love it, love it. Ryan does too and since he cares about such things, if we both love something and it's on clearance--don't wait around.
Here's the deal: I was able to buy the individual components of the set (bumper, comforter, crib sheet) separately and I am wondering if I really need the comforter (I KNOW IT IS DANGEROUS TO HAVE IN THE CRIB WITH A NEWBORN)--would we use it once Jr. is in the converted toddler bed (if he doesn't have baby sister who is using his old crib), would it be good for tummy time, etc. on the floor and NOTINTHECRIB? Note: this thing is paralysis-inducing cute, otherwise my cheapo nature would take over and take it right back and buy more crib sheets (which I plan to buy x300).
And let's not even start on the bumper. Oh my stars, it makes people foam at the mouth. I don't even know why they sell such things if they're clearly So Dangerous!
So, here they are:
DANGEROUS Reversible bumper (stripes on one side, rockets on the other):
HYPER-DANGEROUS comforter (also could be used on glider):
Boppy covers:Set plus crib skirt:Flannel receiving blankets:
So, like I said, I'll vent about people's comments/attitudes re: safety later. But seriously, isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen? Finding gender neutral/boy bedding that isn't all sports is really hard and this is DARLING!
