Baby Cot Bedding Sets: Pros and Cons of Getting Them for Your Baby
To create the most comfortable and safe bed for your baby, it’s important to take extra care when choosing bedding.
There are several differences between the ideal bedding for a baby and bedding for an older child or adult. For example, for a baby, a fitted sheet is a must, but a top sheet is not.
There are many pros to buying a baby cot bedding set. Sets take some of the guesswork out of creating the best bed for your child, and the bedding pieces will automatically be coordinated for an aesthetically pleasing look.
The main con with baby cot bedding sets is that usually they don’t include everything that you need for your baby’s cot. For example, you’ll might have to buy items like mattress pads separately.
How Many Cot Bedding Sets Do I Need?
Buy at least 2 sets. While one set is being washed, the second set can be put on the cot.

What is Included in Cot Bedding Sets?
Cot bedding sets vary, but it’s common for them to at least include a top cover (duvet or quilt) and a decorative pillow. Some sets also include bumpers.
Why are Cot Bedding Sets So Expensive?
Often there is more emphasis placed on quality and safety with bedding made for babies than for older children and adults, which adds to manufacturing costs. For example, cot bedding is more likely to be chemical-free and anti-allergen.
Is a Cheap Bedding Set Good for Your Baby?
Cheap bedding sets may be tempting to buy to save money, but they are rarely made of high quality materials that breathe like 100% cotton. They also might not be anti-allergen.
Healthy bedding is important for people of all ages, but babies in particular have vulnerable immune systems so it’s best to make safety one of the top priorities when choosing bedding for your infant.
