Baby Crib Bedding As A Hand-Me-Down
In these challenging financial times there are a lot of parents who are strapped for cash and who are worried about the prices of baby crib bedding. It is definitely true that children often rapidly outgrow baby crib bedding, but is it actually safe to give as a hand-me-down? If you are a parent experiencing financial difficulties or simply being frugal, there is some good news and some bad news.
The bad news is that many cheap baby crib bedding sets aren't made to last and therefore really can't be used as donated goods for the new baby. Poorly crafted baby crib bedding sets are made out of easily stained material that often rips or tears after a couple of months of use. This happens with bad quality bedding sets, even if they are well-maintained. If you bought cheap, carelessly made baby crib bedding for your last child, the chances are pretty high that you won't be able to use that bedding for your new bundle of joy. Sadly enough, chances are even higher that you need to replace your baby bedding sets if your first child is still using his crib.
The good news is that some baby crib bedding sets can be used even if they are hand-me-downs, and that is because high quality baby crib bedding sets are made of material that is easy to sanitize. Quality crib bedding will not stain, nor will it look shabby after a couple of months of use. Wise mothers who knew that they would be having a 2nd or a 3rd child often invest extra cash in a high quality neutral baby bedding because it will last for years and years and because of its universal use. In fact, it's not unheard of for very high quality baby crib bedding or baby quilts to be considered heirloom pieces because of how well-made they are.
Lastly, it's also important to take into account how well-maintained the baby crib bedding sets were before you decided to see if it's possible to reuse them. Parents who want to make sure that their child is safe and comfortable in their cribs should never use threadbare baby quilts. They also should try to see if the baby crib bedding that they are considering using is sanitary. Depending on how the bedding was made, it can be very hard to clean. The best hand-me-downs are baby crib bedding sets that are made with quality materials, were maintained well, and are also easy to clean.
