Because of Chicago’s recent safety-related ban, crib bumpers are getting left out in the cold.
But things still look sunny in the nursery, thanks to Skip Hop’s new Complete Sheet. The all-cotton bedding has a bold design around the sides and a coordinating pattern on top, giving the appearance of a bumper, only there’s no pesky padding. Linen piping on the border pulls together the graphic pop.
Eight styles include pretty pennants, pink lattice, and moving gears. Our favorite is a unisex pattern of alphabet letters mingling with zoo creatures.
While you’re at it, check out the other gift-worthy parts of the collection: a nursery blanket, airflow wearable blanket, and linen crib skirt.
We’re sure you’ll warm up to all of it.
Available for preorder at Galt Baby, 1915 North Clybourn Avenue, at Kenmore Avenue (773-327-9980 or galtbaby.com), $120 for the four-piece set; $24-$30 for separates. To see styles, go to skiphop.com.
