March Madness Baby Name Bracketology

The “Madness” has begun. You’re counting down the days until your baby is born and still haven’t picked that slam dunk of a name. Have no fear, March Madness Bracketology is here!

Believe it or not, brackets are useful for things other than sports and Daddy is sure to love the idea. We’ll show you how to pick the champion name for your baby no matter the decision-making dilemma.

boy vs girl bracket

Keeping your baby’s gender a big surprise? Make half of the bracket with girl names and the other half with boy names. The championship will literally come down to the final buzzer when your bundle of joy arrives!

meaning vs love

Can’t decide whether to use a name with family meaning or an original that you love? Play them against each other until the championship comes down to one of each. You may just find that they go nicely together and create a winning first and middle name combination!

mom vs dad

Has a battle begun between the parents’ name picks? Just because you can’t agree doesn’t mean you can’t combine. Each parent should complete half of the bracket until your final picks are in the championship match up. You may find that you actually agree on a name or that both names combine nicely to make the first and middle names.

Get your family and friends involved in the fun – have them all fill out Baby Name Brackets from your original choices and see who can guess which name was picked. You could even throw a small name reveal party or wait until the baby is born to keep the suspense!

We scored when we found this b-ball artwork complete with name personalization!

The wrap can be worn to any occasion and is still soft and comfortable, unlike other dressier clothes that are made with taffeta and other fabrics. Your baby will even want to sleep in this set! This pale pink can easily be paired with a pop of color such as a blue that really complements reds and pinks.

Parents Love Convertibles (and so do their babies)

Bratt Décor’s beautifully inventive convertible creation, J’adore, starts life as a cradle to safely cuddle your baby from newborn to 3-6 months (depending on the size and activity level of your child).

It converts to a gorgeous oval crib, wonderful in any nursery; especially well-suited to smaller spaces. Later, the daybed kit makes it a toddler daybed.

One piece of furniture fits your child’s needs until the age of four. Smart and lovely!

Available online exclusively at PoshTots, in finishes:

More on convertible cribs from our friends at About.com:

No doubt, you’ll likely run into the convertible crib more than any other style. The option has a lot of appeal to parents who are looking for furniture that will last, not just for the baby and toddler years, but beyond.

What Do Convertible Cribs “Convert” Into?

Depending on the model, convertible cribs can transform into many other pieces of furniture. Combinations can include any of the following:

  • A crib
  • A toddler bed
  • A daybed: essentially the toddler bed without the toddler rail
  • A bench
  • A single bed
  • A double bed

If you see the distinction 2-in-1, it means that the convertible bed has 2 purposes (generally a crib/toddler bed). Likewise 3-in-1 will offer 3 purposes, and so on. This re-purposing of the crib can be a very economical purchase and save you the hassle of upgrading to toddler beds and full-size beds later on down the road.

AFK Inspired Design

Anxious to take advantage of our awesome, ground-breaking, savings offer on the Art For Kids Collection (details at bottom) , but don’t know where to start? Let our Lead Designer, Patty Grogan, lend a hand! Her daring designs and helpful hints are sure to give you inspiration for any room.

Gender Neutral Nurseries: Pale pinks, blues, and greens are popular choices when it comes to color selections, but you can easily get locked into boy/girl specific colors. With so many great choices of fabric, wall coverings and paint, colors can take a room to the next level. Like pink? Make it coral with a pop of teal blue. Want a blue hue? Goodbye baby blue, hello navy. Add brighter greens and a pop of orange. Mix in patterns by trying a fun patterned wall covering on one wall and paint the other walls a complementary solid.

Going Beyond Pink and Lavender: Your little girl has grown out of the pink, cutesy animal character print on her bed and now it’s time for an update. Start with a sophisticated, yet sweet, French-style bed in cream or white.  When selecting colors for her room, try using a fresh, feminine color palette in soothing teal blues and pale yellow. Select a geometric contemporary wall covering as a focal point for one wall adding interest and complementing, not overwhelming, the overall feel of the room.

For furniture, bedding and decor continue with cream/white, pale teal, soft yellow and add an unexpected pop of black – she’ll love it!

Daybed Design:

Daybeds can be a great alternative to a standard bed in a boy’s bedroom or girl’s bedroom. This bed style is also great in nurseries as a place for parents to rest and in playrooms for sleepovers, especially when the daybed as a trundle.

Daybeds can float in the room as a centerpiece and make a style statement or can be placed in front of a wall, which gives a casual living room feel and takes up less space in a room. Color flexibility is a great attribute of daybeds as well – there are many wood and metal finish options as well as fabric options for upholstered daybeds – which are so very popular now.

Try a contemporary style daybed, select a neutral base color and add lots of bright or patterned pillows to spice it up. You can change your style anytime by just replacing the bedding, pillows and other accessories.

What’s Your Crib Style?

What’s your crib style? When it comes to designing your nursery there are several choices, so be selective.

For a truly unique design, consider the round crib. If your space allows it can be a great focal point for the room. Place the crib in the center of the room for a show-stopping look. Round cribs can be dressed up or down depending on your taste and how elaborate you’d like your nursery.  For great drama, consider a round crib with a canopy that allows you to add long, flowing draperies around the crib. If simplicity is more your style, consider a basic, but sleek crib or one that is beautifully ornamented with understated carvings that speak for themselves.

OB-NURSERY GIRL2

(this traditional girl’s nursery with wonderful additions of whimsy was designed by our Lead Designer, Patty Grogan, [email protected])

Perhaps you are looking for a posh, yet practical crib style for your nursery that will allow for easy transition from infant to toddler. With the purchase of conversion kits, this style allows you to convert your crib to a toddler bed and in some cases a daybed and full bed. The AFK Heirloom Crib (pictured below) can be converted from a crib to a toddler bed, day bed, and full size bed as needed.
