  • Pick something up at a thrift shop and put the $200 in your baby's college fund

  • Thrift shop. Sometimes you get real lucky and find what youre looking for, for my DD i foudn a brand new never being opened Eddie Bauer Crib set, It was cute..

  • If I had to do it again I would just buy cheap fitted sheets from walmart or target or something. You are constantly washing them so why spend a lot. Also the comforters look great, but you rarely use them and the bumper is a great concept, but with my son I only used them for a very short time. He started scooting at a young age and would burro his head in it..too scary.

  • yeah that's ridiculous! lol. you could probably find something much cheaper in a market place on CM. or on ebay. we just used 2nd hand fitted sheets. no bumpers or quilts because many "experts" say it's safer without those things anyway. gl!

  • You won't need the comforter and bumpers are a pain and not needed. Just find a cute fitted sheet at Babies R Us or something.
    Someone gave me a cheap set and the only thing I ever used out of it was the sheet. The comforter just got packed in the closet since you don't use fluffy stuff with babies and once the baby is moving you don't want a bumper in that they could press their noses against or climb on.

  • All you need are crib sheets and PJs appropriate with your climate. We used those blanket sleepers until he started crawling (he would get frustrated in them after that). Save the money, and reduce the SIDS risk. Now that our son is older, we use one of the 425 blankets we have to cover him up. That's it. We put the decorating money into wall stuff.
