Let me start out by saying that having a baby boy is going to be a whole new experience for me. I had a sister, but never had a brother. Plus, I wasn't around little boys much as a child, except for my cousins and I was too young to remember them as babies. So, I am going to be leaning on my husband a lot for guidance on this one.
A little funny for everyone... Someone told me to invest in some peepee teepees and I literally had no idea what they were talking about. So, I had to Google it. And, I was amazed! I never knew they sold that sort of thing, but I am sure they will be lifesavers for me.
Even though the peepee teepees are something that seem really useful, they weren't going to be my first major decison maker. In the whole grand scheme of things, the baby's bedding ranked top on my list. What type of baby bedding should we purchase for a boy? There are SO MANY options for little girls: flowers, butterflies, polka dots, animals, and anything with pink or purple. But, the boy's selection was rather slim anywhere we looked. We didn't want to do the whole sports theme because he will have plenty of time for all that once he gets older. So, should we use trucks, trains, airplanes, jungle animals, dogs, or try to find another cute theme?
I knew I wanted to purchase the baby's bedding from Pottery Barn Kids because their bedding is good quality and it washes very well. My daughter has their Hayley bedding in her room and we love it. So, deciding on the brand that we wanted to purchase really narrowed down our options, but we found one that we really really liked...
The Animal Alphabet Crib Bedding
This time around, we decided against purchasing the whole bedding set. My daughter never used the comforter that we purchased for her nursery and it ended up getting in the way most of the time. So, we decided to purchase the bumper pad, crib skirt, and 2 sets of crib sheets. For his blanket, he will use a light blue minky dot blanket with his initials embroidered on it.
We also purchased this navy blue valance for his window...
Up next, I will show everyone stage 1 of our playroom to nursery transformation.
