One of my favorite things is Clara’s bedroom. I love that it feels pretty. (right now, however, it’s filled with huge containers of clothes that she’ll need to wear soon and clothes that she fit in three days ago that no longer fit, but really, I’m serious, it’s usually pretty.)
But my favorite thing about Clara’s room? Her crib bumpers. I fell in love with the fabric one day and knew I had to incorporate it into her room. Erin’s Mom made the bumpers for me. I’m amazed every time I see them.
I know there will be safety concerns about the use of bumper pads during Clara’s first year and the use of them, in general. We actually never use them during the first year but they were so pretty that I put them in the crib. Then when we put Clara in the crib at four months, she never moved. And still, when she sleeps , she’s flat on her back, her arms to the side, she never moves, not a single inch. (also: video monitor) So, until she starts moving, I’ll keep them there. And put them back after she turns one.
Through the month of June I’m going to be sharing my favorite things. See the complete list here.
