How To Choose The Right Crib Bedding Sets?

Every home with a kid will require kids bedding sets. There are different types of bedding and choosing the right one is important. You have to consider the mattress, comfort, space and safety. This guide provides you some valuable tips on how to make the right choice.


Safety is the first and most important factor. Make sure the crib bedding sets meet the latest crib safety standards. It is recommended not to borrow or buy used sets. The mattress should be firm and fit tightly within the crib. There should be no space between the mattress and the crib’s side. Soft mattresses feel comfortable but they can increase the risk of suffocation.

The following points can help address your safety concerns:

  • Flannel-backed mattress pads are safer.
  • The pad should be covered with a fit cotton sheet.
  • The sheet should fit snugly over the mattress so that it doesn’t come loose.
  • Avoid puffy bumper pads because they can be unsafe.

Types of Cheap Baby Bedding

There are different types of crib bedding sets. The most commonly used ones are as following:

1. Mattress Pad Covers

Mattress pad covers are similar in size to fitted crib sheets. The elastic along the edges help them fit snugly over the mattress. Look for a cotton cover that has thin waterproof layer. Some types of mattress pads will cover only the top. A crib sheet will have to be fit over it. The pads are available in different sizes. It is recommended to choose thin pads, even if they are quilted ones.

Keep these additional points in mind when choosing the kids bedding sets:

  • Quilted pads are mostly made of synthetic materials or cotton. Make sure the mattress is covered securely with these pads.
  • Plastic bags should never be used because they can cause suffocation.

2. Fitted Sheets

Usually most sheets for crib bedding sets feature fitted corners for keeping them secure. These sheets usually have the following different fabrics:

  • Woven cottons
  • Lightweight flannel
  • Cotton blends

Avoid using bunched or loose fitted sheets.

3. Swaddle Wrap

A swaddle wrap can be used in place of a blanked. These are also available as readymade kids bedding sets and can be stretched over the regular sleeper and provide space for the kid’s legs to be stretched.

There are even more types of cheap baby bedding that can provide comfort, room and safety for your baby.
