I am in bed with feverish Sophie. She is asleep after a long afternoon of mystery fever and crying a lot, no other clear symptoms she could verbalize. Sickness #475?

Meanwhile, we are working on getting her her own bed, to replace the crib she currently uses for nap and the first part of the night. I'm in the market for a comforter/quilt/duvet cover/ bedding set that is orange, red, brown and/or yellow, or some combination thereof, in a twin. If anyone has brilliant suggestions, do tell. Searching for kid bedding sets is a ridiculous, gendered waste of time mostly, and while I realize there are other approaches, ideas are welcome.

Okay so I had intended to make a post with more actual content, but it turns out typing with my thumb on my phone is kinda hard, so yeah. This is me, posting from a warm, cozy dark room, wishing you all a good sleep. Or, if you are [ profile] gemini7, a good, labor and birth if it's happening tonight!!

Could she still have teeth coming in? Does she have all her molars? I hate mystery fevers. Poor bubs. Hope she is feeling better soon!

How much monies are you looking to spend? Have you looked on Etsy? It will definitely be pricer, but they might have what you are looking for?

She does have all her molars, thus, this whole adventure is still basically a mystery to me. :/

I have looked on Etsy! I found...not a lot, really. I mean, things exist, but none of them are just right or they are way expensive (I am okay with paying a bit more, but can only do so much). I will keep looking, though, Etsy can is evolving. :) Thanks!

I'm sorry Sophie is still feeling sick :( That is the yuck.

As for the bedding, maybe you could do some sort of mixing and matching of some basic prints in different colors.
For example, these dots or stripes
and these stars

This one is kind of cool too. They have it with pink accessories, but I think it would look totally different in a red or yellow room.

This one is brown and orange, and they have the same in lime and brown

Or I really like this owl set! But I would probably just get the duvet cover then pair it with some bright orange sheets or something with stripes

I better stop now or I'll keep looking for hours :) I love pretend decorating rooms. But you are totally right about the gendered bedding. Just from a quick search, most websites I saw had a section for unisex crib bedding, but then toddler and kids bedding is in either boys or girls groups. It's like, it's okay to be gender neutral if you are pregnant and not finding out until the baby is born, but after that baby is born, you better pick either the blue or pink side, quick!

But, like I said, I'd probably go with some sort of mix and match of patterns in primary colors. It would be bright and cheerful, and it would be easy to change out or add to your collection. Like, if you have a red striped comforter, then in a year see some cute sheets with red apples, it would totally go :)

Whoa lady, you are on top of this! :)

I really like the Garnet Hill stuff, and while I am still scouring the internet...they are in the running. Thank you for all the help! I think your suggestion of mix-and-matchable choices is a good one, particularly.

i effing love IKEA, and was there yesterday, so i must recommend them for duvet type needs:

and there were tons of other ones in the store (we were in new haven) as well.

Thanks! Boy, I wish we had an Ikea nearby sometimes. Those are some good prices, too!
