I think it is quite beautiful and sweet...for boy or girl. I have to agree...Baby Eli wont know what he wants his room to be like till he is a toddler. I know when I did my nursery my daughter, it was all girly and what not, but as soon as she became a toddler and her true personality shined...it was "Bob the builder" stuff all the way.

I think it is boy but some of the patterns are kind of feminine

I like it. But I am about to redecorate my son's room since he has outgrown his "baby" decor. I'm also not a fan of super masculine baby rooms for boys. They have their whole lives to be "manly boys".

I think it's gorgeous! It could work for both but I definitely think it looks more like a boy nursery

Thanks y'all.

I think he's decided against the bedding after reading your comments... haha.

For those who asked, this bedding is from Baby Bedding | Crib Bedding Sets | Custom Baby Bedding

I actually agree with SunnyDaze....the paisley and bows make it kinda too girly for me. I am not a fan of gender neutral either.

Im not sure...I had them with DD. Im guessing on babys that cant roll over its a smothering risk. But I had my DD sleep with me or next to me til she was rolling over with ease on her own....technically my DD rolled all the way over by two weeks but she didnt become a master roller until she was a few months old.

I'd totally use something like that for a boy. Heck I'm seriously considering something floral (more modern with primary colors) if I have a boy just because I love it and I'm too picky. I hate traditional "boy" things like sports, trucks, etc.

Me too!! Ugh it's so frustrating! Which is why we chose to have bedding made because I hated everything.

Safe sleep guidelines recommend no bumpers and no blankets. It should be just the baby, mattress, and sheet.

Here's a photo: Safe to Sleep Public Education Campaign


Another note- love your nursery! It says boy to me.

There are a lot of new safe sleep guidelines. The "back to sleep" (no tummy sleeping) campaign has cut the SIDS rate in HALF, which is amazing. So they are doubling down with other things that have been associated with suffocations or just impede airflow around a baby and contribute to SIDS risk. Bumpers, quilts, any stuffed animals or pillows or other soft items should not be in the crib. The wearable blankets are very popular now. And they recommend keeping the room cool and a fan on, pacifier use is also a factor that decreases SIDS risk.

AFM, we cosleep (some bedsharing and some use of the Arm's Reach cosleeper) and love it Fabulous for the lazy breastfeeding mom! M wore wearable blankets and/or sleepers and I kept my bedding away from her and used a receiving blanket on my cold shoulder, if we were bedsharing. And put her in the cosleeper if I was not feeling alert enough. I never got a crib for M, she sleeps on a mattress on the floor now, with one of us next to her when she needs the closeness.

ok thanks for the info. I realized no bumpers and stuffed animals and such but i didn't realize no blankets, seems like the baby would be chilly. I guess I'll be looking into those wearable blankets
