I’m afraid Laurel has been ready to transition out of the crib for some time now, and we’ve totally been dragging our heels about it due to inconvenience. We don’t use gates in our house, which isn’t a problem during the day, but seems disastrous for night. (Although I know a family who, rather hilariously, has dealt with this issue by teaching their daughter to knock from inside her bedroom door when she wants to come out.) Plus, the freedom of a big bed seems likely to fuel Laurel’s periodic midday nap resistance.
But the cool bedding collection available at Mason & Matisse might just inspire change. This boutique features modern furnishings, clothing, gear, and toys; we especially love the Deep Sea bedding, whose fun underwater graphics are represented in a gender neutral, refreshing color palette (shown; $119 for duvet and pillow sham set; $58 for coordinating fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillow case set).
