A cradle or bassinet for your baby is never a bad idea for the first few months of your baby’s life. Those times can go by quick, so don’t forget to enjoy them! A bassinet is often where your baby will sleep the first night they are home from the hospital. For those first few months, it is also convenient to have different places where your baby can sleep or nap throughout the house. Also, you can move a bassinet from room to room since they are much smaller than cribs. You can move your bassinet to the in-home office in order to get work done or keep it by your bed side for late night feedings. If you decided to purchase a bassinet, you’re probably on the hunt for bedding as well. We’ve got good news for you, bassinet bedding is a bit easier to purchase than crib bedding. Since it is more mobile, you don’t need to worry about matching it to a theme. You may need to match the shape of your bassinet by choosing from round, oval, or standard bedding for your bassinet but that is about as hard as it gets.
Below are different types of bassinet bedding you can choose from:
Cradle Bedding Sets: These tend to be a bit more expensive since you are getting more within a set. Typically, cradle bedding sets come with additional items that aren’t necessarily needed but very nice to have. For example, you might get cradle bumpers, comforters, or quilts in addition to the much needed fitted sheet. The fitted cradle bedding sheet is the most essential item for your baby to comfortable sleep. The additional quilt can be a nice touch for when you need to change your baby on the floor it can act as a changing mat.
Cradle & Bassinet Sheets: Fitted basinet sheets are a must buy if you decided to purchase a cradle or bassinet. They allow your baby to sleep happily on a soft surface. You will want to find one that is soft to the touch and strong in quality. Usually, bassinet sheets are made of 100% cotton and machine washable but it is worth viewing those details to make sure you know what you are buying. Also, be sure to check the thread count of your sheets as 200 or more is ideal.
Bassinet Padded Sheets: Similar to a fitted sheet, a pad sheet provides the exact same in addition to an extra layer of padding for your baby. These are also washable and come in a variety of colors to fit either your baby boy or girl.
