Crib Linens For Same-Sex Children

Did You Buy New Crib Linens?

Were your baby sheets thrown out with the bathwater? New moms invest a lot in their first babies. From cribs and swings to strollers and bouncy seats, the price tag for newborn essentials can seem ridiculous. When baby number two (or three) is on the way, many parents look forward to getting a second use out of the equipment.

But what to do with the wee one's bedding? Once the firstborn moves from the crib to a bed, there's a chance the linens can be used again. For some mamas adding a baby of the same sex to the family, there is the temptation to give the new baby a nursery of his own, while others act more practical and reuse the crib bedding for a second time.

We registered for gender-neutral bedding just so we are able to re-use it when we have #2. The nursery lamp & valances coordinate w/ the crib skirt, diaper stacker, etc. Our daughter is in a toddler bed now and as part of her "gift" of the toddler bed she got a quilt, a pillow and 2 new sheets, so that way she doesn't feel like the new baby is taking her stuff.

My daughter is still in her crib, and will be for a while until she moves to a toddler bed so those will go with her. We are our next a new set, but just becuase I like having at least one full new set. If she wasn't using hers still, i would definitely be reusing them. Everything that can be reused is being reused.
