Do you think a comforter is necessary? All the sets I find of bedding come with a ton of stuff I don't think we'll use, so now I'm planning on buying separate pieces for everything. As I've been searching, I got to wondering if a comforter is necessary for the crib. Instead I'd like to knit the baby a large crib blanket in the turquoise and green color scheme I've chosen. BTDT mommies, do you think this will work, or do I need a comforter?

No comforter needed...Mine always have laid under the baby anyway. Your plan sounds great!

I used the comforter for a play mat for tummy time because it had different textures and things. DS loved it.

Not necessary at all until baby is old enough to have one. I can't remember when THAT is (darn you preggo brain) - but it's not for awhile. (I want to say not until after 12 months?Anyone?)

We didn't even buy a bedding set for this reason. We purchased a breathable bumper instead (which baby can put his/her face right up against and still be fine), and several changes of organic sheets. And then it was sleepers and sleep sacks all through winter! It's not nearly as pretty as a matching bedding set, but it makes more sense.

Thanks for the input, ladies I think that's what I'll do. I've seen comforters that I like, but since I've already decided to get everything separate, I'd rather make my own blanket. Then it'll look exactly how I want it and it'll be a special addition to the nursery

Actually, and I know a lot of people wont like this, lol, but I would recommend not buying a bedding set at all. You arent supposed to use the bumpers (SIDS risk, decreases air flow in the crib), you cant use the comforter (ours always ended up as a wall hanging), sooo really you end up spending lots of $$$ on a crib sheet and a floor duster. If I had to do over, I would not have spent all that money on a crib bedding set.

That's why I'm not getting a bedding set. I wouldn't even use the comforter or bumpers. And I think a home made blanket would be a lot cuter anyway!

Our comforter always ended up as a wall hanging too. I definitely wouldn't use it until the baby was a year or older.

I dont think I will use it in the crib. I thought to use it as a blanket on the floor for her to lay on, or maybe as a blanket when she gets older.
But since it came with the set I'll find something to do with it. If nothing else it will be a decoration in her room. But I'm betting on the floor blanket is where I'll make use of it.

We never got a bedding set and never will. I'd rather spend $20 on a set of sheets than $100 on something I'll only use half of. The bumpers and comforter are useless.
