This is my first baby, am stepmom to 2 girls ages 12 and 13. The girls were 5 and 6 when I entered the scene. My question is... when do I put out the sheets and bedding for the nursery? My family baby shower is this weekend and I know some people will want to come by the house to see our baby girl's room. My concern is that if I put all her bedding in the crib now... by the time she uses it, it will be all dusty and yucky and I'll have to wash again?? We have a bassinet that we are planning to use in our room for the first 4-6 months? But also want to have that feeling that her room is "done"... ADVICE PLEASE =)

All the furniture is set up and baby clothes put away... bedding has been purchased but I'm just so hesitant to put it out... honestly I think part of me feels like it's a jinx to be completely finished.

Something I did with my first baby. I left her room completely empty. On the day of my shower, I asked everyone who attended to put one piece in the room. It was a goo bonding moment for everyone. Served as a nice "ice breaker" too. Plus I got the room all decorated and didn't have to do any of it!. They did ask me where I woud like the crib and everything else. But they put it all together. It was a room put together by the love of all of my friends.

with my oldest i put his stuff in his crib when i was roughly 8 months i believe. with #2 he didnt go into his crib until he was 6months (moved) with number 3 i put his in his bed like the day i was due. if your concerned with it getting dusty you could always lay a blanket over it or something until you use the crib...as for the basssinett thing...a pack n play with one is much better, bigger and lasts longer.

Thanks for the advice =) We did actually buy the pack and play with the close and cozy bassinet for multiple usage. That's a great idea!
