8 Best Nursery and Baby Bedding Picks

The best baby cribs, bassinets, bedding and more for your little one’s nursery. Sweet dreams!

Easy changes

She’ll spit up, the diaper will leak, and don’t forget all that drool… Changing the bed is breeze with this super fast crib sheet system. All you have to do is plop the mattress in its zipper base and then zip the top layer on and off. ($36.99,

Triple duty

Why buy a sheet, waterproof pad and mattress pad when you can get all three (and save on laundry!) in the Ultimate Crib Sheet? Just snap it in place at each corner of the crib and you’re good to go. ($26.99,

Rock-a-bye baby

The gentle vibrating feature in this mattress turns off after 15 minutes—just enough time to jiggle your darling to dreamland. It’s also made with non-allergenic and stain-resistant materials and will fit a toddler frame when he’s ready to move to a big-boy bed. ($159.99,

Princess bed

Your sweet pea will easily drift off to sleep in this adorable classic. It’s fully loaded with a detachable mobile, classical tunes, soothing vibrations, wheels with locks and a large storage basket underneath. ($109.99,

Travel deal

It’s a bassinet, co-sleeper and playard—all in one. The Arm’s Reach Original is easy to fold up, has it’s own carrying case with strap, and fits in the overhead luggage compartment on most planes. ($209,

A worthy splurge

The beautiful curvy look of the Stokke Sleepi is sure to please the most design-conscious moms. Add in the wheels (for moving room to room), the ability to go from bassinet to a larger crib, and the fab oval shape (baby can’t get ‘stuck in a corner’) and you’ve got yourself a winner. ($799,

Timeless style

The Serenity crib, modeled after a 19th French sleigh bed, gives you years of use as it converts to both a toddler and full-size bed. It’s made of durable, solid wood (not particle board) and comes in seven different stains. ($369,

Swedish delight

Well-priced and made of solid beech and spruce, this IKEA crib can be adjusted to two levels and also converts to a toddler bed. Its classic design and dark-brown color works for either a boy or a girl. ($159,
