I know there are a couple of Magpies transitioning littles from crib to toddler beds, or preparing nurseries for first, second, and third-borns at the moment. Thought I’d share my favorite baby and toddler bedding finds…

Baby + Toddler Quilts.

LIBERTY LONDON FLORALS

BLOCKPRINTS IN FISH PATTERN (J’ADORE) OR FLORAL

OYSTER PRINT (I HAVE THIS IN CRIB SHEET FOR HILL) OR ALLIGATOR PRINT (AND THEY HAVE A GREAT TODDLER-SIZED PILLOWCASE TO MATCH)

NEVER MET A TOILE I DIDN’T LOVE

PEHR DOES SUCH GREAT PATTERNS — LOVE THIS MAGICAL FOREST AND THIS TINY BUNNY

I BOUGHT THIS QUILT FOR HILL

J’ADORE PEHR — THIS GINGHAM IS AMAZING

Decorative Pillows for Nursery.

HANDSOME LUMBAR WITH PIPING

GORGEOUS PIQUE WITH OVERSIZED MONOGRAM

APPLIQUE LETTERS — SO DREAMY

SWEET EMBROIDERED STYLE

LETTREFINA MAGIC

D. PORTHAULT COEURS (!!!) — LOOK FOR LESS WITH SCHWEITZER LINEN

Baby + Toddler Fitted Sheets.

BISCUIT HAS SUCH GREAT PATTERNS – LOVE THEIR FLORALS IN PARTICULAR

BOWS FROM SCHWEITZER LINEN

HILL HAS THIS TOILE SET — ALSO LOVE THE ONE FROM DE BUCI BABY

LIBERTY LOVE

ADORE ALL OF THE BOLD BUT NOT-TOO-BABY-ISH PRINTS FROM LEWIS, LIKE THIS RADISH PATTERN

SIMPLE AND UNFUSSY STRIPES IN GOOD COLORS

PASTEL BOWS!

WHIMSICAL AQUATIC PATTERN

SWANS (MINI HAS THIS)

I FOUND THE QUALITY OF BURTS BEES CRIB SHEETS INFERIOR TO OTHERS (MINE DISINTEGRATED OVER TIME IN THE WASH) BUT THEY ARE SUPER SOFT AND I LIKE THE PRETTY STRIPES

GREAT GINGHAM — AND ON SALE

THE FLORAL STRIPE IS SO GRANDMILLENNIAL-CHIC

MINI HAS THIS BUNNY PATTERN — TOO SWEET

DARLING PINK TOILE FOR $20 — MINI ALSO HAS THIS

JUST DISCOVERED THIS NAUTICAL SET AND HAVE TO ORDER FOR MICRO IMMEDIATELY

Crib Rail Covers + Crib Skirts.

If you have a beaver for a baby, crib rail covers are a genius way to prevent destruction. Hill chewed his crib so much we actually bought a replacement crib — can you imagine?! I didn’t even know about crib rail covers until ti was too late! Now we keep the rails covered. You live and learn…

THIS ETSY SHOP HAS GREAT CRIB RAIL PRINTS AND STRIPES THAT YOU CAN COORDINATE WITH CRIB SKIRTS

THIS IN THE WHITE IS INEXPENSIVE, UNFUSSY, AND WILL BASICALLY BLEND IN WITH ANY WHITE CRIB

MONOGRAMMED RAIL COVER FIT FOR A PRINCE/PRINCESS

LINEN CRIB SKIRT IN A GREAT BLUE

CLASSIC, CLEAN-LOOKING CRIB SKIRT — WHITE WITH NAVY TRIM (ON SALE)

Swaddles, Sleepsacks, and Miscellaneous Nursery Finds.

+Changing pad covers: this may sound odd, but I tested a few inexpensive changing pad covers to go over our standard-issue Summer Infant changing pad and they were so thin and non-absorbent — I found investing in quilted styles from Crate and Kids (I bought most of ours for both babies from here), Pehr, and Pottery Barn much better. They also just look nicer/plusher/more full when out on the changing table.

+My favorite swaddles were by Pehr and Aden + Anais. With Hill, we switched from traditional swaddles to the Live to Dream zipper swaddles at around two months and I didn’t look back, but having swaddles on hand is always helpful — a little extra layer of warmth in the stroller/carseat, a carseat cover in a pinch, a nursing cover, etc.

+Sleep sacks: I tried a ton but I liked Woolino and Kyte the best (you can buy the latter in an even lighter weight material for summer months, which was appealing for us as Hill’s room is right off the kitchen and can get warm even with AC blasting). I felt both were great quality, a nice weight, and came in attractive colors/prints.

+If you have a window seat or long bench, this Etsy shop makes the most adorable custom cushions for such situations.

+Most gorgeous hand towels for a bathroom off a nursery. Also love these — I used this amazing Etsy shop to buy the towels in Hill’s bathroom.

+I bought a few nursing pillow covers from IvieBaby. The best prints!

+Amazing Roman-style shades in designer fabrics — have always loved this one.

+We had good luck with Crate & Kids for curtains in the past — we bought mini these black-out panels in a gorgeous blush gingham, but how sweet are these with the bow ties at the top?!

+One of my favorite elements of mini’s nursery was this sweet hand-crocheted mobile. Swoon! I could weep! I also love the bunnies

+My favorite cribs: mini had this one, which appears to have been discontinued but you might be able to call to locate one, or get a very similar look for less with this style. Micro has this handsome style, which feels boyish and architectural in all the right ways. I love the classic look of the Jenny Lind, and you can’t beat the price — a great way to save on a central piece of nursery furniture without sacrificing style, and then you can splurge on something else, like wall art or custom curtains! I’ve seen the Lind crib in so many elegantly-appointed nurseries! I think everyone temporarily wanted a lucite crib after seeing this nursery. Swoon! You can now get the look for less with this West Elm style. For a small space and Scandi vibe, I would consider the Stokke mini.

+Pastel finds for little ones here.

+A great gingham shower curtain for little ones for $20. I shared a couple of other great finds for a bathroom centered around this blue color here.

P.S. Big girl room finds and some of my favorite recent home and garden finds here.

P.P.S. S&L is offering one of its 20% promotions — this stepstool and these dip-dyed stool (doubles as a small table / plant stand) are longtime Magpie favorites for nurseries!

P.P.P.S. Writing this brought me back to decorating mini’s nursery in our Chicago home before she was born — and this post. Oh, my heart!

  1. I love the gingham, and the blue Liberty…could be cute mixed?!

    I adore Lewis, and especially that alligator print! Reminds me of the Meri Meri alligator pillow, too cute.

    So, I have a (very) erstwhile blog, and one of my favorite posts I did was an imaginary girl’s nursery, and I looked it up again, inspired by your post… and low and behold, I included that same hand crocheted mobile! Here it is, if you’d like to see…. oh and please excuse the now cliche Sharon Montrose and teepee…it was 2013, ha! But I do still love that Dwell print! XO
