Excited about introducing your son to your favorite athletes? Choosing boy baby bedding based on your team spirit can be a fun way to decorate your nursery.

And whether you choose a subtle approach or are hoping for a decorating homerun, there are a variety of options available to show your love for your team. Online retailers specializing in children's college sports gear carry items for the nursery, as well as other necessities such as clothes, baby bags and strollers.

College Buddies USA represents a wide variety of teams, so you're likely to find your favorite. Choose between five-piece boy baby bedding sets, mobiles and blankets that allow you to customize your nursery as much as you like.

If you prefer professional baseball, basketball, hockey, football or NASCAR, check out Sports Kids, an online retailer specializing in baby items featuring different sports leagues. If you're a college fan, you'll also find NCAA bedding sets, accessories and general sports items on the site.

Baby Fans and Brand New Dad are other good resources, where you'll find lots of great accessories from pacifiers to baby blankets to mobiles – all team branded. If you can't find the set you're after, consider visiting Kustom Kids Bedding, which creates custom baby bedding. Are you a Lakers fan, while your spouse roots for the Celtics? The company lets you combine sports teams to make sure everyone is represented.

Other great resources for team baby bedding are stores geared toward a particular team. For example, Johnny T-Shirt has everything a North Carolina Tar Heel fan could need, including a complete nursery set. Also, check online sports league stores (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR) to see what items are available for your little boy's baby bedding. Though few carry complete bedding sets, you can find lots of accessories to represent your team. Don't forget to check traditional retailers for team baby items. Babies "R" Us and Target both carry team branded items, though most of the complete bedding sports sets are very generic.

Adding team-specific accents to your nursery may alleviate the need to have team-branded crib bedding. Consider solid color crib bedding and then accent the room with items such as sports-themed jerseys, clocks, throws and a mobile.

For example, if you're a Florida Gators fan, begin with a solid orange or white bedding set (change up the look by swapping in blue, white or orange crib sheets). Next, look for a school jersey -- personalizing it with your last name is a nice touch. Complete the look with a Gator mobile, blanket or throw, and other accessories such as a light switch plate, growth chart and wall hanging. You can easily find most of these items branded with your favorite team's logos. By choosing to accessorize, you can spend as much or as little as you like.

Creating a sports-themed nursery will teach your little one to learn to love your team as much as you do. We'll cheer to that.
