Beautiful Bedding with or without the Bumper

In our industry, things change constantly. Colors and patterns that were on trend this season may be very hard to find next season, our artisans are always coming up with gorgeous new pieces, and child safety standards are ever evolving. Over the past few years, baby bedding with bumpers has been a big topic of debate.

The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) filed a petition requesting that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) establish a performance standard for crib bumpers to distinguish between “hazardous pillow-like” and “non-hazardous traditional” styles.  JPMA’s current stance is that “traditional crib bumpers, when used properly, can prevent limb entrapment and head injuries.”

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), there is no evidence that crib bumpers protect against injury, but they do carry a potential risk of suffocation, strangulation, or entrapment because infants lack the motor skills or strength to turn their heads should they roll into something that obstructs their breathing.

We at Posh are supporters of parents. We believe that you will make the right decision for your baby. To help support this important decision, we have recently added many new bedding sets available with our without bumpers. Below are a few new beauties with designs that don’t dull without the bumper!

The trick? If you’re on the fence about using a bumper (or definitely don’t want to), find a bedding set with most of the pizzazz in the crib skirt. This way, you won’t feel like you are being cheated out of the look you want when the bumper is taken away.

Many parents purchase bumpers, but only use them when their baby is around 6-12 months (give or take). Babies around this range have the ability to move away from the bumpers if needed, will be protected from getting their little legs and arms caught, but aren’t quite big enough to climb up on the bumper. You know your baby best and will be able to determine what is right for their stage of mobility.

We, and our talented designers and artisans, make every attempt to progress with the industry. Our promise to you, our PoshParents, is to strive to find new products to fulfill your style cravings and safety concerns. So will it be a two or three piece set for your baby?

Picking your perfect Petunia print can be quite the challenge. With all the different materials, patterns, and color schemes, it may be hard to narrow it down to your number one choice. One thing to decide is whether you want a trendy bright print to stand out perfectly during Spring and Summer or if a classy neutral print is best to pair with every outfit and stand the test of time. You really can’t go wrong with any style of Petunia prints.

Making His Nursery Masculine

We can all agree that babies are cute as can be, but does that automatically mean a nursery must be cutesy and playful as well? When designing a nursery for a baby boy, many parents struggle between going all out cute or making it masculine.

The cute stuff is easy to find, but getting the perfect masculine look isn’t always as easy. Here are a few tips to help you pick out manly pieces for Mr. Baby-on-the-way:

Choose your wood wisely

If you want to go sleek and sophisticated with your masculine design, darker wood finishes are the way to go. Mahogany, espresso, and even black furniture pieces are the equivalent to a man’s classic suit.

Picturing your little man as more of a rugged outdoorsy type? Rustic unfinished woods and natural, glossless pieces will bring the feel of nature into your nursery. Try this incredible DIY to create the paneled accent wall pictured above!

Get rich with color, but play down the patterns

poshtots rugs

Fill your nursery with a sense of strength and power by incorporating deep, richer colors such as brick red, royal blue, emerald green, burgundy, navy blue, forest green, or charcoal gray. Lighter and brighter hues tend to give a cutesy vibe and can often appear feminine.

While fun prints enhance the design of children’s spaces, try to stick with simple patterns. Busy designs can be overpowering in a masculine design. Think of using different patterns the way a shirt and tie go together. Two strong colors and simple patterns can make for interesting design, but too much pattern can clash. Stripes, polka dots, and geometric patterns are easiest and often the best choice. Beware of prints that mix patterns, colors, and throw in random animals/symbols.

Create a strong sense of identity

So much thought goes into creating the name your son will embrace for the rest of his life. Celebrate his moniker to give him a strong identity from the very start. Whether you paint his name on the wall, hang wooden letters, or personalize his gear, the display will give a sense of strength and character. Avoid script fonts to maintain the masculine vibe.

We hope these little tips help you create the masculine nursery you have always dreamt of for your little man! Need some more tips or design help? Give our design consultants a call 1-866-767-4868
