Trend Alert: Bumperless Crib Sets by Caden Lane

The much loved children’s and nursery bedding line Caden Lane has just announced that they will now be offering stylish bold two-piece crib sets (sans bumper).  The decided to launch theses new sets to appeal to parents who do not want bumpers for the children’s cribs yet don’t want to sacrifice pattern and style.  The two piece sets come with a bold sheet and skirt combo and coordinating blankets & extra sheets are also available.  The set will retail for $192 and will be available this summer in July but you can pre-order now.  As an added bonus, now through the end of April Project Nursery readers can use the code PN15 to receive 15% off their entire purchase. Plus, with any order over $100 you get free shipping so there’s no reason not to shop!

My favorite for girl sets are Pink Paradise & Purple Peacock

For boys SandboxRetro Boy

The fabrics used in the sets will also be available by the yard in August so if you love the sets and still want to have a bumper made you can.  Caden Lane has also introduced new prints in their hooded towel, pacifier clip, burp cloth and bib accessories – all perfect shower or new baby gifts.

So what do you think?  Are you already on or will you hop on over to the bumper-less bandwagon?  We recently polled readers about the great bumper debate here which induced quite the list of comments.  I personally let my clients make their own decision and enjoyed a bumper in my own son’s bed until he was 18 months old.  However, I do believe that this is a wonderful alternative and a soon to be trend started by our friends at Caden Lane!

The prints are eclectic and I am sure with bedding like these, your room will never be boring!

Such funky and exciting prints! I am literally drooling at Purple Peacock. I want those! But I am pretty sure DH would never allow it in his soon-to-be-born son's nursery. Sigh. This is one of those times I really wish I'm having a girl instead.

I'm a huge fan of Caden Lane's products! Love all of these patterns and can't wait to recommend them to my clients!

This is a good idea! I haven't quite understood why bumpers are still so popular in America, as here in Australia the Sudden Infant Death (SIDS) experts all advise against them.Are they not linked to SIDS in the U.S?

I had a crib set custom made minus bumpers. Those ones look brilliant!

Berna, what a great idea! I ended up not using the bumpers for our triplets and feel like I wasted so much money. I love the poppy colors too.
