Retaining it’s quality and shape no matter how many times you wash them, bamboo and cotton crib sheets provide that extra level of cloud like softness to help promote comfortable, sound sleep. Additionally, if your baby is already used to being wrapped in our swaddle blankets, the crib sheets offer the same familiar, comforting, and buttery soft feel.
Because crib sheets are made with various fabrics, it’s important to note that not all crib sheets are created equal. It helps to find out just what fabric your crib sheets are made from, and which fabrics promote the best sleep.
Make your baby crib sheet in a beautiful fabric to complete the nursery of your dreams – there are so many prints and patterns to choose from! DIY crib sheets also make a great baby shower gift.
First, make sure to only use elastic that recovers to its original length after stretching. A good elastic length for baby crib sheets can be anywhere from 60” to 70” of 1/4″ wide elastic, but that usually depends on how snug you want the sheet to fit on your mattress and, of course, the elasticity of your elastic.You buy 2 yards and then measure and cut it to 68in. If you buy 68in at the fabric store, they will most likely not make an accurate measurement and you won’t have enough, plus the extra fabric leaves room for if it shrinks when you prewash
if you cut selvages off, you are left with 40″ width with flannel(preshrunk) from JoAnn. I have this dilemma as well. I am considering adding a contrast strip 2-3″ all the way around to get the correct width so that it was purpsefully done that way.
Polyester blends with cotton are also an option. Although not as breathable as 100% cotton fabric, these sheets tend to cost less, are soft and warm, and don’t wrinkle as much – therefore perfect for the cold season, but not great during the summer.
I have an older style cradle that we are using for baby. The mattress size is 17”x34” and 2” deep. If I’m going to make a fitted sheet, would I need to cut my fabric to 19”x36” using 5” squares cut out of the corners? And would 2 yards of fabric be enough to make 2? Help!!
So, how many sets of sheets does a new parent need? The answer is at least two crib sheets. But, to be safe, you should have three to four pieces of crib sheets, so that you can be able to change the bedding whenever needed.
Keep in mind there is no single right answer on how long to cut the elastic. Some elastics stretch more than others, so make sure to adjust your elastic length accordingly.Pin the edges of your cut corners, right sides together. Sew with a 5/8″ seam allowance to create corner seams. Use a backstitch at the beginning and end of each seam. Repeat for all other corners.
Hi Nancy, thank you for the comment, and please don’t worry. Your 42-inch wide fabric will still work fine. The crib sheet may end up a bit snug, but it will fit anyway. The mattress should comply with the size regulations and therefore can not be thicker than 6 inches. Have fun sewing!
Thank you for this great post! I bought Joann’s flannel in the baby aisle which is 42” wide. Do you think it will still be okay after wash/dry or should I add to it?asking to buy 72″ when you only need 68″ sounds wasteful, but if you are using flannel from JoAnn you should anticipate some seriously shrinkage. even so, you won’t get 4″ of shrinkage, so it is a bit wasteful. Joann will cut even to the ink, but many quilt shops won’t. it is smart to allow for shrinkage.
I love flannel sheets, they are so soft and cozy – perfect for keeping the little ones warm on chilly winter nights. And we do have some rough winters here, I can tell you.
Do I need a sheet for my crib?
Why Do I Need A Crib Sheet? Your little bundle of joy will need baby items that are not so little, including a crib. In addition to your baby’s crib, you’ll invest in a mattress, like Newton Baby’s Basic Crib Mattress. And to cover, protect, and preserve your baby’s mattress, you’ll need a crib sheet.
Cotton bed sheets are the most common choice for a baby crib sheet. That’s because cotton is an all-natural breathable fabric, hypoallergenic and durable, which keeps your little one cool during the summer and warm in the winter.I love this fitted crib sheet pattern. It’s so easy to follow this pattern. I’m not an expert sewer except I love to sew. The simplest is the best. Thank you for posting this. Standard size for a crib mattress is 51 5/8 inches long by 27 1/4 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches thick. In addition, the mattress should not be thicker than 6 inches.

DIY crib sheets are so quick and easy to make! Even if you’re a beginner, this fun sewing project is surely not beyond your skills. So, how to make a crib sheet? For instance, how much elastic for a fitted crib sheet? What is the best fabric for crib sheets? How many sets of crib sheets do you need? What is the size of a crib sheet? You’re going to find all the answers in this free sewing tutorial.This is not a comment but a question. Because of the pandemic the world is experiencing at this time I decided to buy fabric online and pick up at the store…Joann’s. What I didn’t may attention to was the with of the fabric. That is a major DUH moment on me. The width is 42 inches. How can I adapt to the 2 inch shortage on the sides? These are sheets I want to make for my son’s lady’s pregnant daughter. I have already been referred to as the great grandma. I don’t know the size of the crib mattress because I don’t think it has been bought yet. Please help regarding the 2 inch difference. Thank you!
For a porta crib sheet…measure the length and width and add 8 inches to each. Then use a 4”x4” square to cut the corners. Then follow the rest of the directions on sewing. Easy peasy! Good luck!
I want to use this method to make removable cushion covers for my camper. Would I just measure width and length and add 8+8 to both measurements for thickness like you did? Thanks.
What fabric should crib sheets be?
Cotton Cotton is a classic crib sheet option. Because cotton is a breathable fiber, 100% cotton sheets are often the standard when it comes to choosing a crib sheet. One of the primary benefits of cotton is that it will help to keep your newborn cool during the Summer and warm in Winter.
Make a small casing for the elastic. Then, fold the edge under 1/2 inch and sew it with a straight stitch. Leave a 1” opening, so you can insert the elastic.
This is a super easy DIY project, perfect for beginners. The funny thing is that the most time-consuming part of this sewing project is feeding the elastic through the casing.
I found an easier way to insert the elastic and it doesn’t take as much time and less frustrating. Take your length of elastic and stitch the ends together making sure your elastic will lay flat. Then after you have pressed your hem up lay the elastic in the crease of the hem (between the two pieces) and stitch making sure you don’t catch the elastic. That way you don’t have to feed the elastic through. Much easier!
Thank you for these instructions! Unfortunately I did not see them before I took apart a crib sheet I had bought to find the pattern and figure out how to make one! This will be much easier next time around.In theory, baby sheets should be changed 1-2 times per week, including the mattress pad. In practice, crib sheets get soiled almost every day, as most babies throw up small amounts of milk from time to time, or after a messy diaper.
A cheat sheet (also cheatsheet) or crib sheet is a concise set of notes used for quick reference. Cheat sheets were historically used by students without an instructor or teacher’s knowledge to cheat on a test or exam. In the context of higher education or vocational training, where rote memorization is not as important, students may be permitted (or even encouraged) to develop and consult their cheat sheets during exams. The act of preparing such reference notes can be an educational exercise in itself, in which case students may be restricted to using only those reference notes they have developed themselves. Some universities publish guidelines for the creation of cheat sheets.In more general usage, a crib sheet is any short (one- or two-page) reference to terms, commands, or symbols where the user is expected to understand the use of such terms but not necessarily to have memorized all of them. Many computer applications, for example, have crib sheets included in their documentation, which list keystrokes or menu commands needed to achieve specific tasks to save the user the effort of digging through an entire manual to find the keystroke needed to, for example, move between two windows. An example of such a crib sheet is one for the GIMP photo editing software.

In addition to your baby’s crib, you’ll invest in a mattress, like Newton Baby’s Basic Crib Mattress. And to cover, protect, and preserve your baby’s mattress, you’ll need a crib sheet.
Because your baby is not yet able to move away if something is pressed against their face, avoid placing any extra fabric in your baby’s crib because it could obstruct their breathing. This includes things like stuffed animals, bumper pads, extra blankets, and pillows.
Newton Baby’s Breathable, Organic Cotton Sheets are soft and safe to use with our mattress. The breathability factor in our sheets allows for superior airflow, which keeps your baby comfortable and promotes better sleep.Newborn babies lie on their backs for the majority of the day unless they’re being held. Their bodies easily get hot while lying in their crib, which causes them to sweat a lot.
As an expectant or new parent, you’re probably wondering, “How many crib sheets do I need?”. While sorting things out as you get ready to welcome a new little one into the world, it’s helpful to have an idea of where to begin.
While it’s impossible to guarantee that these products will never cause an allergic reaction, they are known to minimize reactions. Because your baby will sleep on their crib sheet for several hours each day, it’s important to give them the most hypoallergenic materials possible.
At Newton Baby, we only use hypoallergenic materials in our products. The breathability factor and breathe-thru technology keep humidity and moisture build-up away, eliminating an environment for dust mites to multiply.As a parent, you’ll need to decide how often you want to change and wash your baby’s sheets to make an informed decision about how many crib sheets you’ll need. If an infection or sickness is going around in your home, the germs will settle on your baby’s clothes, toys, and sheets. Sometimes there are even unfortunate sick days that call for a sheet change as often as a diaper change. This is why it’s not only important but necessary to change out your baby’s sheets frequently — possibly daily — during this time. Whether your baby is in a crib or bassinet, they need to sleep on clean sheets to stay healthy.
There are two main categories when it comes to crib mattress size: standard and mini. Which size crib sheets you choose will depend on your little one’s crib. Additionally, we’ve found sweating to be one of the reasons that many babies wake up in the middle of the night. And most crib mattresses and sheets increase sweating rather than decreasing it. Crib sheets are just as important to your baby’s safety as crib mattresses. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of factors to think about when purchasing crib sheets.Newton Baby wants what’s best for you and your little one, which is why we’ve designed our mattresses, mattress pads, and crib sheets to be 100 percent breathable and comfortable.
(Unless you’re using a Newton Baby crib mattress, of course! Our mattresses come with a soft, breathable, washable cover. And unlike other mattresses, ours are made with a Wovenaire Core that’s much more breathable and more comfortable.)
But with Newton Baby’s Crib Sheets, your little one can say goodbye to sweaty backs and hello to longer, more restful sleep! Our breathable crib sheets are ideal for keeping your little one cozy, comfortable, and safe overnight.
To stay on the safe side, take into account the amount of unpredictable messes. Having a few extra sheets on-hand would make dealing with accidents a little easier!
This is where Newton Baby steps in to help you make an informed decision. In this article, we’ll answer the question of how many crib sheets you really need.
Whether you’re using a standard-sized crib mattress or a mini crib mattress, Newton Baby has the crib sheet for you. Our products give your baby safer, healthier, and better sleep!
After taking all of the above information into consideration, it’s time to decide how many crib sheets you really need. You’ll want to evaluate your family’s needs and size to truly answer this question.
The last thing you want is for your baby to get sick, but, unfortunately, it happens. It’s normal for your baby to get sick every now and then while they adjust to the world around them.
If you want to place fresh sheets in your baby’s crib once a week, plan for two or three crib sheets. But if you plan on changing your crib sheets out every day, we recommend having at least five to seven crib sheets.To sum up, the exact number of crib sheets you’ll need for your new little one is a personal choice that depends on your family’s unique situation. We recommend a minimum of two crib sheets and a maximum of seven.
Every Newton Baby crib sheet is just as breathable as our mattresses, providing a safe and gentle sleep experience and superior airflow for newborns and babies of all ages.
Babies tend to move around quite a bit in their cribs. Using a tight-fighting crib sheet leads to less chance of it bunching up and being moved around, which could be dangerous for your baby. Our crib sheets are designed to fit securely over the Newton Baby Basic, Original, and Waterproof Crib Mattresses, but they also fit securely on other mattresses with similar dimensions. In addition, remember to use proper handwashing techniques and keep those who are sick away from your baby to reduce the opportunity for sickness to spread in your home.
Newton Baby not only offers breathable mattresses, but our sheets are also 100 percent breathable. Check out our Breathable, Organic Crib Sheets and give your baby a comfortable night’s sleep! Babies tend to drool, spit-up, sweat, and have diaper leaks in their beds. When this happens, you’ll need an extra crib sheet available for a quick change to keep your baby’s crib clean. The all-around elastic guarantees a safe, snug fit for any crib mattress. Made from organic muslin cotton, our sheets provide a soft and gentle sleep experience for your little one.
The fit of your baby’s crib sheet is an important part of sleep safety. The sheet should fit tightly around the mattress, and the mattress itself should fit tightly inside the crib.

For a crib to suit a farmhouse-style nursery, check out these detailed plans from the budget-minded twosome behind DIYstinctly Made.
You may receive baby comforters and blankets as gifts from friends and relatives, including those they made themselves. It may seem impolite to explain that you won’t be using these items in the crib. Consider using a quilt as a wall hanging or draping a blanket over the crib rail for decoration; remove it when you put your little one down to sleep.Baby bedding used to set the tone for the nursery. But there are other, safer ways for you to celebrate the theme of the nursery without relying on products that may affect your baby’s safety. Consider wall hangings, paint or wallpaper, window treatments, and more (always keeping safety in mind, such as securing the cords on window blinds).While you might be a bit bummed that a crib doesn’t look “complete” without bedding, find comfort in the money you will be saving. You might want to invest that extra cash in high-quality crib sheets—which most certainly will get used heavily with repeated laundering. Additionally, you might be able to sleep more soundly yourself knowing that you are taking appropriate precautions for your infant’s sleep safety.The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), along with organizations including SIDS First Candle Alliance and Health Canada, warns that crib bedding poses a significant danger to babies. Its recommendation: The only thing your baby needs in their crib is an appropriate-sized firm mattress and a well-fitted crib sheet. The mattress should not show an indentation when the baby is lying on it.To prevent this, look for sheets that have elastic the whole way around the sheet, not just at the corners. Sheets made of 100% cotton will hold up the best after repeated washings, though they may be a bit wrinkly when coming out of the dryer. If that bothers you, look for cotton blend sheets that have a higher ratio of cotton.
Crib sheets need to stay on the mattress snugly. Sheets that are are not pre-washed by the manufacturer are likely to shrink. Those that only have sections of elastic rather than elastic encompassing the entire edge of the sheet may also refuse to stay in place.
The safest sleeping environment is a fitted sheet on a firm crib mattress, with no other bedding or soft objects in the crib. Before you buy a chic crib ensemble or put your baby to bed with a homemade quilt, be aware of these safety considerations.Despite the warnings, baby bedding sets that include bumpers and blankets are still available for purchase. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has not banned their sale. In 2019, New York state banned the sale of crib bumper pads.SIDS and other sleep-related infant deaths: Updated 2016 recommendations for a safe infant sleeping environment.

Some of these sheets slip on the mattress like a pillowcase, others have a unique device that attaches the sheet to the mattress.
How often should you wash crib sheets?
twice a week How Often Should You Change Crib Sheets? You should wash crib sheets at least once or twice a week — or whenever one becomes soiled. It’s best to have at least four crib sheets to ensure you always have a sheet ready, particularly in case of an unexpected quick-change.
The AAP cautions against buying products that claim to reduce the risk of SIDS. There are wedges, positioners, and special mattresses that may make these claims, but none have been shown to be effective.Give your crib sheets a test run. Wash them several times according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If after repeated washings you must fight with them to stay on, return them to the store.Do not place crib bumpers, comforters, quilts, blankets, pillows, sleep positioners, stuffed animals or anything else in a crib. These are all linked to an increased risk of death or injury caused by smothering, entrapment, and strangulation.When you visit the site, Dotdash Meredith and its partners may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies.

Use cool water and low heat to help ensure these products’ longevity.For swaddling your baby, stick with a fabric you can easily machine wash at least one to two times per week. Look for a super soft Muslin Swaddle Blanket made with pure cotton that’s designed to be durable enough for frequent washings.
Are crib sheets safe for babies?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), along with organizations including SIDS First Candle Alliance and Health Canada, warns that crib bedding poses a significant danger to babies. Its recommendation: The only thing your baby needs in their crib is an appropriate-sized firm mattress and a well-fitted crib sheet.
If there is an obvious spill, absorb as much moisture as possible first, then wipe up the spill using a damp cloth with a little mild liquid detergent. Follow up with a separate damp cloth and allow the mattress to air dry.
Do crib sheets fit all mattresses?
No, all crib sheets do not fit all cribs. Cribs and crib sheets come in a variety of dimensions. So, be sure the measurements of your sheets match the dimensions of your crib and crib mattress before purchasing them.
Inevitably, your baby’s bedding and bath linens may get stained (it comes with the territory when you have a baby). Do not use bleach, as the chemicals can irritate delicate skin and damage the fabric’s fibers. Instead, soak items in a solution of OxiClean and water for up to six hours, then launder the item using a mild liquid detergent. For more information on the best laundry laundry products for you and your family, read on: Laundry Room Essentials 101: Laundry Accessories You Need for Clean Living. As a general rule, you can wash baby crib sheets using the same method as you would washing your own high-quality bed sheets. (Also see this guide to washing and caring for bedding.)
Keep in mind that you should wash baby crib sheets separately from the rest of your household linens to avoid the transference of germs to your baby’s linens.As an alternative, you can dry clothes in a dryer on a low setting using Wool Dryer Balls to keep bedding and towels feeling soft and fresh. In addition to reducing drying time, Wool Dryer Balls provide a natural alternative to a dryer sheet’s harsh chemicals that coat fibers and reduce the longevity of bath towels and bedding.Before getting into the specifics of any type of bedding, it’s important to note that all baby linens should be laundered using safe, non-toxic products.
The collection of towels and washcloths you’ll find at Parachute are made with long-staple Turkish cotton, including the delicate, lightweight Hooded Baby Towel and Baby Washcloth. They can be washed in cool water using mild, liquid detergent.
When it’s time to dry baby’s bedding, you have a few options. The key thing to remember is that you want the linens to dry completely. Damp fabric offers an environment for mold or bacteria to grow, so ensure your baby’s sheets, towels and blankets are completely dry.Of course you want the best for the baby in your life. All those tiny blankets, sheets, towels and more need to be as soft, cozy and safe as possible every time they touch your baby’s skin.
How often should you change crib sheets?
twice per week It’s most commonly recommended to change your crib sheets at least twice per week, more often if they are soiled or stained. Sheets can get dirty easily and collect bacteria just by contact baby has with other people, spit up, milk or diapers.
Although your crib sheets will protect your baby mattress on a day-to-day basis, it’s important to clean the mattress regularly. A clean baby cot mattress will be germ free and more comfortable.Properly caring for your baby’s bedding is essential for providing your child the optimal conditions for a good night’s sleep. And because your baby’s skin comes into contact with the bedding for long stretches of time in the beginning (the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants should sleep 12 to 16 hours every day), properly sanitizing bedding is important for protecting your little one from unwanted germs.
How to make a custom crib sheet?
Cut your fabric so that you get a piece measuring 68” long x 44” wide. … Cut 8 inch squares out of all four corners. … Pin the edges of your cut corners, right sides together. … Hem the edge of the sheet. … Make a small casing for the elastic. … Cut your elastic 60-70” long and attach safety pins to both ends.
All our bedding is Oeko-Tex certified, surpassing safety and environmental standards, so you can rest easy that this bedding will be safe against your baby’s skin.Tumble dry a Hooded Baby Towel on low or medium heat using wool dryer balls to keep your baby’s towel extra fluffy and comfy (and yes, wool dryer balls really work.) A safe and cozy sleep starts with an investment in high-quality baby bedding and bath linens. The full line of nursery-ready sheets, quilts, and pillows you’ll discover at Parachute are made with the finest fabrics to help ensure your baby gets a good night’s sleep, plus baby bath linens to keep your little bundle cozy and warm after a bath. They’re all made with the finest fabrics to cradle and comfort your little one. By using a mild, unscented liquid soap free of dyes, you’ll avoid irritating baby’s sensitive skin and help protect the delicate fibers of the bedding’s fabric.Line drying is an option, particularly if you have the space and live in an area where the clean air will naturally freshen your baby’s bedding and bath linens. The sunlight can work to naturally disinfect the material.
A Baby Linen Quilt can offer the perfect amount of fluffy comfort for your baby’s tummy time. To clean a quilt, machine wash in cool water using a mild, liquid detergent and tumble dry on low. The Baby Linen Quilt can also be ironed using low heat.
Storing your baby bedding separately from the rest of the household’s bedding will help reduce the chance for germs and bacteria to transfer to your baby’s sheets — this is particularly important during your baby’s first few months.
It’s especially important to wash towels and washcloths after every use during your baby’s first few months, since their immune system hasn’t developed yet. However, your baby will likely not need daily bathing, as the water can dry out their delicate skin.
Help protect your pillow by encasing it in a sham like an adorable Toddler Sun Pillow Cover or Toddler Moon Pillow Cover. Pillow covers made with linen are machine washable in cool water; use low heat to dry. To clean a baby cot mattress, remove the crib sheet. Use a vacuum attachment to remove dust and dead skin from both sides of the mattress. Then wipe the mattress with a damp cloth and allow it to air dry. Baby hooded towels do more than create adorable bathtime moments (although they also do that). Hooded towels help retain warmth post-bath, which is particularly important in the first few months when your baby can’t regulate their temperature yet. (See this article to learn more about why you should use baby hooded towels.)
What is the difference between crib sheet and cot sheet?
A cot sheet is bigger than a baby crib sheet, since this sheet has to fit in a cot bed. A cot sheet is 150×120 cm and is combined with a cot blanket: the sheet goes underneath and the blanket goes on top.
If there’s a spill or leak, clean the mattress immediately to prevent mold or bacteria from growing on or within the mattress. And regardless of any accidents, you should clean your baby’s mattress at least once a week during their first few months when the immune system isn’t developed enough to fight off common germs. The good news is that you don’t have to buy a separate detergent for your baby and the rest of the family if you use a gentle but powerful, non-toxic laundry detergent formulated to be safe and gentle enough for baby’s skin — as well as for anyone else in the house with sensitive skin or allergies. But this concentrated liquid can still get laundry clean and smelling fresh. A Waffle Baby Blanket is the perfect weight for keeping your baby cozy when heading out in the stroller. It can be machine washed in cool water and tumble dried on a low setting. Do not bleach to whiten baby blankets — stick with OxiClean for stains.However, not everyone has the space or optimal environment for line drying. Also, depending on where you live, dust and mold spores in the air can attach themselves to linens that are left outside to dry. If the spores become trapped in the fibers, they can exacerbate issues for those with asthma and allergies.
