Sizes of baby bedding in the crib

Quiet baby sleep - the key to a healthy and joyful child. To create all the conditions for a healthy sleep is one of the tasks of parents. Choosing the right cot is just the tip of the iceberg. You need to wisely pick and nightwear, and bedding.

A variety of children's bed linen is not only in the choice of colorings and motifs of the picture. The seller will immediately offer you options of different sizes. To buy bed linen later did not turn into a problem, you need to know exactly what you need.

How to choose

The choice of bedding depends on the age and sex of the child, as well as the size of the bed. The bed set for the crib will be the smallest size, the colors for the girl and the boy will be different, teenagers will most likely prefer to choose the bed linen themselves.

Before going to the store, measure the blanket, pad and mattress.For the size of the bed 120x60 and 1,5-bed need different in size sets.

We must be interested not only in the size of the linen, but also in its quality. In a dream, the tender baby skin will come in contact with these things; the child will inhale their scent. If the manufacturer has faked and used poor-quality fabric and paint, then the child’s health problems are ensured.

Poor quality bedding material will subsequently entail more waste than buying a quality set. Bad fabric wears out quickly, deforms, loses color and appearance.

Painted poor-quality paint bed set can leave marks on the body of the child, cause allergies, itching, irritation and rashes.

To make linen for a bed can from natural and synthetic fabrics:

  • cotton (natural fiber),
  • satin (dense silky fiber, one side of which is smooth),
  • polyester (synthetic, soft fiber),
  • flax (natural smooth fiber),
  • calico (cotton, weightless fiber),
  • sateen-lux (the dense fiber, cast by gloss),
  • poplin (cotton, silky fiber).

Less often for the manufacture of a bed for children choose silk and nylon, ranfors and superkotton.

All canvases of natural origin are good for kids. Cotton canvas (coarse calico, satin) stands out among other special density of the flight of fibers. Such kits are more expensive, but they are durable, made from natural raw materials. The kit does not lose sight after a lot of washes, and it can serve as years.

Always pay attention to the label attached to the set of linen. It must contain information about the material of manufacture, method of painting, mode of washing and drying. This information should be considered when washing the bed set. Improper care of things can lead to their deformation and rapid deterioration.

Be sure to pay attention to the quality of sewing kit. You should be alerted by non-observance of simple rules:

  • The coloring of the children's bed should not be bright or dark tones. For pastel and light drawings use less harmful paint.
  • The seams of the product must be of high quality. All corners, cuts are processed properly. There should be no excess, sticking or hanging threads.
  • The threads themselves should be lighter or darker in tone than the main fabric.
  • Pay attention to the smell. An unpleasant or chemical smell does not bode well. This means that when dyeing the fabric used low-quality dye. For a child, such underwear is definitely not suitable.

You can buy bedding products without looking, but already at the first fitting you will encounter a mass of inconveniences. The blanket is constantly lost in the big duvet cover, the pillow sinks in a pillowcase, and the sheet continually crumples or slides off the mattress.

Double set for children. Double beds for children are found not too often as one and a half. In the market it is quite difficult to find a double set for children. The low demand for such kits causes their shortage in the market.

The children's double set is produced with the following sizes:

The combined set. The situation when the child sleeps in the big bed is familiar to all. It is still difficult for him to shelter with a big blanket, so he uses a small one. The same remains the pad.

One of them includes one duvet cover, one pillowcase and one bed sheet, the others - one duvet cover and one pillowcase. You can buy a large one-and-a-half sheets and a children's pillowcase, and a duvet cover. When the child grows up, it will be possible to buy a standard set of linen.
