Tips for crib bedding

Crib Bedding Keywords: Soft and Washable

Whether you spend a little or a lot on the crib sheets your baby will use, make sure the sheets are very soft. Knit cotton sheets are popular, as are flannel crib sheets and higher thread-count woven cottons. Choose a fabric that will wash easily, and make sure that all of the bedding pieces can be washed in a machine.

Babies make too many messes to deal with hand-washing or spot-treating.

    Crib Bedding Must Be Snug

    Baby cribs and crib mattresses today are made to a standard size, which is set by federal regulations. Most crib bedding is designed to fit the federally allowed variation in crib mattress sizes. You may find that your crib bedding is slightly larger or smaller than your crib mattress, though, so it's a good idea to check that everything is the right size before washing the bedding for baby's arrival.

    For your babys safety, crib bedding must fit the crib mattress snugly. If you want an extra measure of security, look for elastic straps that clip to the crib sheet under the mattress to hold the sheet in place.

      The good fit is one reason why you shouldn't use other non-crib items in place of a crib sheet. Trying to fold a regular sheet around the crib mattress probably wouldn't give a snug, safe fit, for example.

      How Long Will You Use It?

      When you're deciding how much to budget for crib bedding, consider how long you will want to use the same crib sheets or other coordinating pieces. Many toddler beds can use the standard crib-size bedding, so a luxury crib bedding set could be used for many years. Handing crib bedding down to siblings or friends might also warrant spending more on a high-quality bedding set.

      If you'd like to be able to change baby's nursery decor often, or you don't intend to use a toddler bed, inexpensive crib bedding or basic crib separates might be a better choice.

      Choosing inexpensive solid color or printed sheets doesn't have to mean the nursery is visually boring. Add bright touches on the walls with paint or artwork, or select a cool lamp that goes along with your chosen nursery theme instead of relying on the crib bedding to be a focal point.
