As we all know, it is recommended that the only thing in our baby's crib is a tight fitted sheet and our child.
Anything else poses a safety risk.
Why is it then that baby bedding is so darn cute?!
That cushy bumper and fluffy comforter?
You never get to use them!
I bought our bedding on uber clearance during our first pregnancy. Had I realized the only thing in the set I could safely use would be the sheet, I probably would have passed. But, I figured out a way to safely use the bumper.
As a crib skirt!
I had loved the stripes against the polka dots, but knew I couldn't use it as a bumper. Problem solved! I know get to view the two coordinating fabrics without any risk to my little man!
So if you have the adorable crib bumper stashed away somewhere unsure of what to do with it, try it as a skirt!
