Fitted sheets

Security blanket

While toys in the crib aren’t recommended for infants, once your baby is old enough for a “lovey” or a security blanket, this is a great option. At only $4, you can stockpile a few so you have a backup one for the car, stroller, grandparents’ house or an extra one if yours gets dirty. LEKA snuggle blanket with soft toy, $4, ikea.com
