If you didn't put baby's name above crib.... — The Bump

If you didn't put baby's name above crib....

what did you do?  I ordered this really cute painting  that has the alphabet on it and in the middle is painted "my name is Giulia", I also have a picture we took of a street sign in Rome, the street is Via Giulia and I was going to put up that pic in her room somewhere, it will be small.  

 I don't want her name all over the room.  The crib is on the longest wall and I was wondering what I could put above the crib, any ideas?

  • I'm putting wall decals on the crib wall.  IMO, hanging things over the crib is asking for it to fall into the crib.  Now, I don't think I have ever had a picture just fall off the wall before but when it comes to my LO, I'm taking no risks.

  • I am also doing a wall decal of a tree and the leaves will float over her bed (if it is a her). If it is a boy, I will do some other type of decal but I haven't set a theme for a boys room yet.

    we put a vinyl wall decal -- i'm a crazy mother already and didn't want anything that could fall off the wall above the crib. plus the decal is cute.
  • i used to have a quilt hanging behind the crib...i just took it down and am debating what i do next.  I love this idea and am thinking about making something similar:

    I've attached ivory grosgrain ribbon to each one to hang them with and they will be hung just like that, side by side.  They're fairly large (12x14 or something) and underneath them we are going to put a quote decal that reads "... I pray the Lord my soul to keep..."

    I can't wait.  I think it's going to look really cute.

  • I'm not big on the name/names everywhere either & I was planning to hang framed things too until ppl started talking about them falling off the wall (which I really don't think is much of a risk if you don't live in an earthquake prone area, but whatever). I'm still up in the air, I would like to put some artwork or something colorful for the babies to be able to look at but not sure exactly what & how to frame/mount for it to be 'safe'. I know they make some sort of pillow/quilty like things you can hang but that doesnt really fit my style, nor does the hanging quilt.?

    I got a set of alphabet wall cards & was going to find a way to hang 6 or 8 of them on the wall but then changed my mind & decided to display the whole alphabet on a shelf we have that goes around 2 of the walls up high near the ceiling. ?

    GL!

    These were in my nursery - more years ago than I care to admit!!  Very vintage.

    That is the cutest idea!  I also love this book...I might have to steal this one. Embarrassed

  • We have a wall decal of a rocket flying over his crib. It's very cute!
  • I put a huge tree decal behind the crib...I felt odd about hanging something over the crib.
