Bassinets are the cocoons that envelop the baby in its initial time in the world. Bassinet covers, needless to say should be baby-friendly and pleasant to look at too. Let’s see some ideas for the same, in this article.
Remember your first day of school? How scared you were and how all you wanted to do was run back home, where you felt safe and protected? Well, now imagine yourself as a newborn baby. Compare the size and years and think how afraid you must have felt when you were brought into the world, removed from the safe haven that was your mother’s womb. Well, you may not actually remember the feeling, but you get the point, right?
The need to feel secure and in an environment that ensures nothing harmful will ever come your way is basic human nature. And when a baby is introduced to the world, it needs to be kept, at least for a while, in an environment very similar to its mother’s womb, so that it can take its time to adjust and adapt to its new surroundings. Bassinets are what provide this warm and comfortable environment to the baby. In this article, we’ll give you some ideas for bassinet covers, that will keep your baby cozy and at the same time look great!
Ideas for Bassinet Covers
The baby nursery is the room that will play home to your bundle of joy in his or her initial years. So, you do everything to make sure that everything within the room is absolutely perfect for the baby. You choose a theme, you choose the colors and you design the room according to it. One piece of baby furniture that will play a major role in the early months of the baby’s life is the bassinet. Yes, the baby crib can be used only after about a year or so, when your baby will be able to at least sit. So, for now, it’s the bassinet covers that require your attention.
Ideas for Boys
When it comes to choosing a cover pattern for a baby boy, you can go with a simple and sleek look. Though the baby won’t really understand a thing about it, you would definitely want the cover to look good for your own satisfaction. So, first step, pick a theme for the boy’s room. Any light pastel shades can be used. You’ll have to pick a matching color for the bassinet as well. Go in for tones of cream, beige, olive green, etc.
You can either have a single color cover or you can come up with a color combination that will work for you. Black and white, olive and beige, orange and white, sky blue and white, etc., are some combinations you can try. As far as design is concerned, plain, simple, no frills, and no bows. Just a comfortable bedding to make your little one sleep in peace.
Ideas for Girls
As with the baby boy’s bassinet, you need to co-ordinate the baby girl’s bassinet cover with the baby room colors. Since it’s a girl’s room, you can go in for more floral shades like pink, mild tones of red, peach, mint green, white, etc. The bassinet cover must match the color and the theme of the room. If the walls have designs on them, you can have beautiful designs of butterflies, dragonflies, stars, flowers, balloons, etc., sewn or printed on the bassinet cover as well.
If you’re thinking overly girly, then you can go for the whole frills and bows deal. Have ribbons all around the base and punctuate them with bows at regular intervals. Just ensure that the tassels, fringes, etc., are limited to the bottom portion of the bassinet. The cover over the head should be free from any embellishments. Else, there are chances of the ‘decorations’ falling off the cover and into the bassinet.
Bassinet covers can be plain or fancy. The important point to be taken into consideration is that the baby inside the bassinet is not encumbered by any part of the bassinet or its cover. So, pick out the right bassinet, with the right cover.
