i took my search, and borderline obsessive personality disorder, over to etsy to sort through all the rubble and find the good baby bedding. and ya-alllllll: i hit the jackpot. this. this is what we needed to get back on track.
this and the box of gourmet chocolate covered pretzels that somehow fell into my grocery cart.
an aside: some folks are selling baby bedding that is dry-clean only. that must only be for the babies that don't spit up and poop. otherwise known as dolls.
i went through 86 pages of this madness for the cause; here are some favorites (links to shops below).
