We've created a baby bedding guide to help you make your decision.

  • Layer away The best advice is to use lightweight bedding that you can layer, so a mix of sheets, blankets or coverlets, this way you can add or take away to keep your baby at an optimal and comfortable temperature. You can also use how you feel as a guide, if you are cold and need an extra layer, then your baby is likely to be cold too. Duvets, quilts and pillows are not recommended for your baby until he or she is 12 months or older.

    You can avoid interest by paying the cash price in full within the payment free period. We are proud to offer a handpicked selection of nursery furniture for your babies room. Cons You can't use them until your baby is a year old.

    They can be heavy for little legs to kick off and they can also lead to overheating. Once your baby is over a year old, you may wish to use a quilt instead of blankets and sheets. When older giving your baby a quilt may help them get used to it when you eventually move them to a grown up bed, and feel more familiar to them. Making the bed would also be much quicker than with blanket and sheets, fantastic news for time starved mums.

    Remember when putting baby to bed, its important to use the feet to foot position.

    It is important to check on your baby regularly when they are asleep. This feels slightly on the chilly side to most adults, I think, but if wearing the right sleep attire your baby will be just right. There have been a number of cases in the UK and abroad where infants have become entangled in the ties and material, or fallen from pulling themselves up on the bumpers.

    Quilts are wadded products which have a higher tog rating and so are only suitable for use from 12 months onwards due to the risk of overheating, coverlets on the other hand have a lower tog rating and so are suitable for use from birth.

    Our coverlets have a tog rating of 1 tog, where as other manufacturers may have a higher rating, so its always best to check individual items to make sure they are suitable, selected coverlets can include minimum weights for baby if a slightly higher tog.

  • Fitted sheets are very useful, especially as your baby grows and starts to move around. Flat sheets tend to be used in combination with blankets, as top sheets and many styles come with attractive embroidered cuffs, which can also create interesting textures for baby to touch when in bed.

    Blankets are great for layering and cotton cellular blankets are perfect for the cot bed, and natural fibres too.

  • Bumpers are also designed to protect baby when in their cot bed, but make sure to check ties and ensure that the bumper is fitted securely. Once baby starts to pull themselves up or sit up unaided a bumper should be removed. While its good to have a complete spare set of bedding its not essential, just make sure you have at least one extra set of sheets and blankets, having three or four is even better, just in case of very messy nights.

    An alternative to traditional sheets and blankets are sleep suits, essentially they are a sleeping bag for baby and come in 1 tog or 2.
