The Importance of Choosing Good Quality Baby Sheets

Adults are conscious of what type of sheets they use for their beds. Some enjoy simple bedding as long as they’re comfortable, others like to sleep in style with luxury sheets, and some have to sleep on hypoallergenic sheets due to sensitive skin. No matter what category you are in, have you thought about your baby’s quality of sleep?

Good quality bed sheets can bring out the best in your baby’s quality of sleep, especially if they have a problem sleeping through the night or have sensitive skin that keeps them up constantly. Parents to toddlers should know just how important sleep quality is. Toddlers generally sleep through the whole night with the exception of one nap a day, if any. Newborns get their rest throughout the day and periodically throughout the night. In fact, they get the most sleep, averaging from about 10 and a half to 18 hours a day.

In order to make sure your little one is getting the right amount of sleep, you need to make sure they have the right bedding. When it comes to newborn bedding, the bare minimum is a crib fitted sheet and a blanket. With a toddler, you need the same bedding that an adult usually has. There are various reasons as to why your toddler may have a hard time sleeping including sensitive skin, itchy sheets, excessive sweating, allergies, etc. If your young one suffers from any of these symptoms, it may be time to rethink your original choice of bed sheets and think about sheets for sensitive skin or hypoallergenic sheets. 

One thing to look for in good quality baby sheets is a hypoallergenic label. In today’s market, if a product is deemed as hypoallergenic it will mention it on the label. It is one of the many qualities that consumers enjoy. Hypoallergenic means that the material that is used in the product is made up of material that will not cause your allergies to act up. These are sheets for sensitive skin and will not cause skin allergies to start or flare up. Hypoallergenic sheets are sheets for sensitive and itchy skin. You should likely buy hypoallergenic baby sheets if you notice your child has developed allergies. Symptoms in newborns and toddlers include excessive eye rubbing, development of dark circles under the eyes, rashes, coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and irritability. When you purchase hypoallergenic sheets, these symptoms will lessen during bedtime or nap time, leading to increased comfort for your child.

Along with sheets for sensitive skin, baby waterproof sheets are also helpful when thinking about upgrading your child’s bedding. Depending on your child’s age, it may not be a big thing to include on your list of things that matter most when purchasing children’s bedding but it sure is an added bonus. If you have a young child who just so happens to be in the potty training stage, waterproof sheets may be what you can use as potty training sheets.

The last things to look for when choosing good quality baby sheets are comfort and durability. If it feels comfortable to you, then it is very likely that it will be very comfortable to your child whether the fabric feels plush, soft, firm, or a mixture of textures. When you purchase sheets, you can usually take it out of the packaging and feel it for yourself. Durable sheets are the main reason why consumers buy bedding. Who wants to buy sheets that don’t last very long.  A good set of bed sheets should last about 8 years so choose comfortable sheets while you are searching for quality. 

Happy choosing!
