Baby Bedding: A Buyer's Guide

Your baby spends the major part of the day in bed, sleeping. Therefore, it is important that the baby bedding you provide your child is comfortable, as well as easy to maintain. These are some commonly available options of baby bedding:

Cotton Sheets

Cotton sheets and blankets form a basic requirement for your baby's bedding. They can be indispensable in helping you maintain a comfortable temperature for your baby. This is because they can be used in layers, allowing you to add or remove them from your baby's bedding according to your needs. While you can easily buy cotton sheets in sizes that are appropriate for use as baby bedding, in a pinch, you can also cut them out from normal bed sheets meant for adults.

Pillows and Cushions

While an assortment of cushions surrounding your child may look adorable, resist the temptation to use them as baby bedding. Cushions and pillows are known to increase the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Besides, too many cushions in your baby's bedding may also make it too hot. If you must include a pillow as part of your baby's bedding, remember, a firm one is preferable to a soft one.

Baby Sleeping Bags

Sleeping bags are another option for your baby's bedding. An advantage with using them is that your baby will not be able to throw it off as with a simple cover or quilt. But we’re not talking about camping sleeping bags. If you decide to use a sleeping bag, remember to buy one that is the right size, to prevent your baby from sliding completely inside. If you are using a sleeping bag for your baby's bedding, keep the temperature of the room in mind—a sleeping bag can become quite hot.
