Safe Bedding Practices for Babies

For babies under 12 months, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Nation Institute of Child Health and Human Development recommend the following to help reduce the risk of SIDS:

    1. Place baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib that meets current safety standards.

    2. Remove pillows, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, pillow-like stuffed toys and other pillow-like soft products from the crib.

    3. Consider using a sleeper as an alternative to blankets with no other covering.

    4. If using a blanket, put baby with his or her feet at the foot of the crib. Tuck a thin blanket around the crib mattress, only as far as the baby's chest.

    5. Make sure your baby's head remains uncovered during sleep.

    6. Do not place baby on a waterbed, sofa, soft mattress, pillow or other soft surface to sleep.

What are we doing at Sweet Dreams My Child to look out for the safety of your baby? All of the crib bedding and baby products that we carry is from manufactures who are in compliance with all current safety standards of the JPMA.

More Ideas for Decorating in an Owl Theme

Owl themed rooms are fun and whimsical. Do a little shopping at your local thrift or craft store for some fun owl accessories. Try to bring in some accessories that are unique to add to the whimsical look and feel.

Add a tree to your room. Owl bedding is perfect for a nature themed room and what do we love from nature more than trees? You can try your own had and paint a tree on your wall or hire someone to paint a tree. There are also many large tree decals that you can peel and stick to your walls. Try Styleywalls on Etsy for some adorable large tree wall decals.

Add other natural elements such as a large vase with twigs for a kids bedroom. Or make some leaf rubbings with your child in turquoise and lime, frame them and hang them on the wall.

We hope these ideas will help get you started on your owl themed nursery or bedroom!

Zebra Baby Bedding

So you are expecting a baby! It's time to start thinking about a nursery to bring your little bundle of joy home to. What are the latest trends for that special room in your home? One of our customer favorites is zebra.

Fun, funky and a little bit wild, Zebra crib bedding is one of the hottest trends in nursery decor. The contrasting colors and bold patterns make zebra print a fabulous choice for your baby's nursery. Your baby will love the high contrast of black against white and you will love the fun style that this animal print will bring to your home. Sweet Dreams My Child offers several choices to help you decorate in zebra style.

Zebra Baby Bedding

This adorable Pink Zebra Baby Bedding Set by Sweet JoJo Designs is one of our customer's favorite choices. The high contrast black and white print is combined with a soft pink and a hot pink for a look that is perfect for a baby girl. This same set is also available in turquoise, purple and lime green.

Lime Green Zebra Baby Bedding

Purple Zebra Baby Bedding

Tips for decorating your nursery in Zebra:

1. Don't be afraid to go for it! Zebra print is a bold choice. You can use a little or go all out. Don't be afraid to have fun with this bold look!
2. Choose an accent color. Black and white is great, but combining your zebra print with one or two accent colors will pull your look together.
3. Keep other prints to a minimum. Let your zebra print be the focal point of the room. Instead use other textures to add interest and depth to your style!
4. Have fun! Your sweet baby will only be in a crib for a short time. Make the most of it. We love these looks from Sweet Jojo Designs because they also come in toddler, twin and full/queen sizes, so you can carry on the theme into childhood!
