imn_angel25:Yep. One of my friends is making me matching curtains and a bedskirt. I am super excited and love how it looks. I used one on my DS's crib as well. I personally think it makes the crib look more put together.
ya i like the look of bed skirts too

chelseymiller10:Hi, I also don't know but i think it's cute and attractive to have a bed skirt. I am planning to buy all those things that can help my baby feel good specially if it is a girl because I really love babies. You can buy a crib with a ready made bed skirt on it. It'll be less expensive.
You're quite right about this. My mother never had a bed skirt on my crib and I felt horrible about myself all these years. It all makes so much sense ....
To me, bedskirts on cribs are in the same category as bumper pads (16+ years ago) -- a nuisance to deal with when making the bed. So, no, I'm not putting a bedskirt on ds2's crib. (and no, I'm not putting bumper pads/mesh thingys in there either)
Then again, I've never been one to be concerned with having a cute, put-together nursery. I did try it when ds1 was born, but it just didn't make his nursery feel any better/worse than having the ecletic nursery that dd had (and that ds2 will have.)
A bed skirt came with the crib set we got at our shower. I put it on since I didn't want to store it or waste it by throwing it away. You can barely see it with the way our crib is built, but it does add a little extra to it since we are also not using bumpers.
We didn't have one in DD's first bedroom.
When we moved here and redesigned her nursery I did buy one... total PITA. Once you start lowering the mattress (so... 4 months?) it doesn't fit right anymore and you have to keep jacking it up every time you change the bedding. Not worth it.
mrsjjohnson2010:Yes I plan on using one!nbsp; I like the way it looks plus I may hide a few thing under the crib lol
