Jill McDonald Baby Brand



Hooray! It feels like Christmas has arrived early for me. My new brand Jill McDonald Baby is now in Babies-R- Us. After having my son over three years ago I became passionate about sharing my artistic vision with other families. My goal is to make really great, affordable products that kids & parents will remember fondly. I'm really proud of what we've come up with. You'll find lamps, musical mobiles, wall art & much more. From the packaging to the final product assortment it's been an exciting journey. I've developed themes for each collection with a bit of story around each idea. Lullaby Breeze is my girls crib collection and Adorable Dino for boys. Stay tuned we're hoping to add more crib bedding, baby & toddler clothing, bath products & juvenile bedding in the near future. If you know any expecting mom's or dad's spread the word!

I saw your Lullaby Breeze bedding at Babies R Us last weekend and fell in love! I'm 13 weeks pregnant, and if I find out I'm having a girl I will definitely buy this! I love it! :o)

I just purchased your Adorable Dino collection for my 2 month old son. It is exactly what my husband and I were looking for. My husband loved dinosaurs as child and your collection just brought back so many wonderful memories that he would like to past down to his son. Thank you for making such an adorable design. We love it!

Hi,
I just found out I'm having a girl and I love the Lullaby Breeze set! I was just wondering if the blue in it is more of a baby blue or an aqua/turquoise blue?

Hi Allison- congrats on your news that it's a girl! the blue in Lullaby Breeze is a really pretty aqua color. Hope you end up with some JM crib bedding.
Happy Shopping!

Jill-
Thank you so much! I have been looking for MONTHS for girls bedding and have found none that I like. Saturday, I ran across this bedding at Babies R Us and fell in love. So here's my new dilemma...now I want that cute crib that the bedding is on in the above picture. Do you know what it's called or where it's from? I need it!

Also, I'd love to get some more of these fabrics you used for this design to make a tablecloth for a round side table and a pillow for my rocking chair. Do you know where they can be purchased?

Jill said...

Hi Jennifer, So happy to hear the Lullaby Breeze is the girls bedding you've been looking for! The white crib in the packaging photo is from The Land of Nod. "Time to turn in crib" $599. Regarding getting some additional fabric to make a tablecloth, pillow so on. Hmmm...-That's a bit more difficult. If you really want the exact patterns in the Lullaby Breeze set I would suggest buying an extra crib sheet, 4pk of receiving blankets or valance. If you need larger amounts perhaps you could mix in solids of pink, green or aqua. I woud LOVE to see what you come up with! Hope this helps.

Jill said...

Thanks to all for the wonderful feedback! If you purchase JM crib bedding please send me a photo. It's always really exciting for me to see how you personal your nursery.

Tuesday I found out my baby is going to be a girl so I went to Babies R Us to get ideas for her nursery. I absolutely loved your comforter set. Do you sell it separate from the crib bumper and other items?

Jill said...

Hi Lisa, Congrats... It's a girl! I'm glad you love my girls Lullaby Breeze crib set. Right now I do not sell the comforter separately. Hope you get just what you're looking for!

I did not get paint swatches with my bedding. What colour blue paint should I get?

Hi Andrea, Sorry to hear you did not receive the paint swatches with you bedding. We've matched the recommended colors included with the bedding to Olympic brand paints available at Lowes that have a zero VOC formula. The blue that we recommend for Adorable Dinos Boy Bedding is Stratosphere C51-1. The aqua that we recommend for Lullaby Breeze Girl Bedding is Crashing Waves B56-2. Hope this helps and happy painting!

Gina said...

Hi there, love the lullaby breeze collection! We are making this our nursery theme for our first baby girl. I also really like the crib pictured with the bedding set. What brand/style crib is this? Thanks!

Jill said...

Hi Gina, Congrats on being a new Mommy!
The crib in the Lullaby Breeze photo is from The Land of Nod "Time to Turn in Crib" price $599. I am so pleased to hear you'll be using my crib bedding. Wishing you & you family many wonderful memories to come!

Jill Martin said...

Hi!! I am due in May and just purchased your Lullaby Breeze bedding. We are working on paint colors and I noticed where you told someone about the Crashing Waves B56-2 color. Do you have any other colors that you have matched up?

Thanks -
Jill Martin

Gina said...

Thanks Jill! We really love all of your designs :-) We will be recommending your products to all of our expecting friends. Keep up the beautiful work.

Hello! I LOVE this set! Do you think you'll design more sets in the future, possibly without bumpers? Honestly, the bumpers are the only item preventing me from purchasing this set. I've looked for the quilt, but it seems it only comes as a set. :( I hope you will consider the possibility of selling some items outside of a set in the future.

Jill said...

I will have 2 NEW crib bedding collections out this summer. I think that the bumper will be sold separately. (we are still hashing this out) I understand it's frustrating to purchase a set if you don't plan on using all the pieces. Maybe I'll post an idea of how to convert the bumper into a throw pillow or something fun for the nursery. Thanks for being a fan!
Wishing you & your little one the best!

Was hoping I would have another girl so I could use your lullabye bedding! And low and behold..its another girl! Husband argued and told me I had to re-use my oldest daughters bedding....but I always get my way! ;) can't wait to get the room painted (we are going to do a soft yellow) and have everything up! Just a heads up..toysrus in canada only carries the bedding set, mobile and lamp..I had to get my snowbird parents to pick me up the rest like the vallance, wall hangings, etc. from down south! Kind of dissapointing, but on the upside its cheaper down there!..Gorgeous bedding set and very soothing colors..can't wait! thanks for the amazing design! No more cheesy monkeys, lambs, elephants, pink and brown polka dots etc..no offence to anyone, not my taste! :)

I just posted the last comment but realized you were suggesting paint colors..do you have a yellow in mind that would work good? I dont want to go as bright as whats in the bedding I was hoping a little softer, as my daughters room is already blue and I dont think I'd like pink or green :)
