Which Type of Crib Sheet Is Best For Your Newborn?
Throughout their early development, it’s important to ensure your baby is getting a good night’s sleep in order to promote growth in both the brain and body.
But because your arms and chest aren’t always available to be your baby’s bed, one of the biggest questions is which kind of baby crib sheet is best for your newborn? There are a number of options to choose from, so we've outlined some of the best materials for baby crib sheets below.
Classic, 100% cotton bed sheets are often the standard when it comes to choosing a baby crib sheet. This is often because cotton is a breathable fiber, therefore it keeps your newborn cool during the summer and warm during the winter. While it can be rough and scratchy at first, cotton sheets eventually soften while remaining surprisingly durable.
Regardless of which materials you choose for your baby’s crib sheets, be sure they are fitted to the crib’s mattress and do not exhibit any strings -- these may be a choking hazard to your newborn. Furthermore, be careful of fibers which may cause bunching and may loosen around your baby, creating an additional danger. Your newborn baby shouldn't just be comfortable in their crib, they should be safe and secure, too.
