How to choose the best crib sheets for your baby

Comfortable crib sheets are important. Uncomfortable crib sheets can be the difference between your baby sleeping through the night and waking up restless.

With so many different types and styles of sheets available it can be a difficult task to find the perfect crib sheet for your baby. Fortunately, I have done the hard work for you. By the time you have finished reading this guide you will be an expert on baby crib sheets.

What are crib sheets

Crib sheets are just like the sheets that you use on your own bed but area much smaller size so as to fit your baby’s mattress

How many sets of crib sheets will I need?

Ideally you will want a minimum of two crib sheets. This way you will always have a spare ready to go if one is in the wash. I personally have three sets on rotation, just in case I cannot wash one before the next diaper leak.
