A baby's sleep is affected by the way he feels when he sleeps. He must be comfortable and must be able to roll around in his sleep without any problem. Babies are so fragile and sensitive that choosing the perfect bed and bedding will take some time.
This article will be able to help you choose the best nursery bedding for your child. First off, choosing the right material for the nursery bedding is the key factor for the perfect bedding. It has to be soft, light, and can keep a baby warm during the night. The baby is placed in the crib for almost 60% of the day where he plays, sleeps and do baby things there. It should be comfortable enough to play around and sleep anytime. The sheets over the mattress should not be easily removed as to let the baby roll around and play without him being tangled around the sheets. Choose a mattress with a higher density than the normal mattress and make sure it is double-sided. These double-sided mattresses last longer than the normal mattresses. Lastly, choose those mattresses that are labeled antibacterial, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic to lessen the risk of skin irritation while the baby roams around its bedding.

You should also consider not placing stuffed toys or pillows inside the crib. Comforters, stuffed animals should be avoided even though it would look perfect with the bedding design. These things increase the risk of injuries and death of the infant due to accidental suffocation. Plus, you can save more money for other things like milk and diapers instead of buying these things that might just end up harming your baby, right?
Lastly, you should be able to choose the perfect, most comfortable sheets for your baby bedding. The sheets should fit snugly on the mattress and has a tight grip so that it will securely be in place even after a lot of movements are made by the baby. Sheets should also be pre-washed by the manufacturer. If they are not pre-washed, they tend to shrink and lose their shape after washing. Look for sheets that are 100% cotton-made. These kinds of sheets are able to hold its shape even after repeated washings.
