What items come with the bedding?

Usually, you will find a frilly little pillow in the infant bedding. It does not normally have to be big or very soft and fluffy. At the time which your baby may start using the pillow, you might have to consider the kind of support to the head and the neck that the pillow provides. It should not be too soft or too hard for comfort. Safety and the ergonomic design of the pillow are always a first to consider. Pillows also should be non-allergenic. Babies have very sensitive skin and as such, may need to have the extra care and consideration. Choose pillows which have 100% cotton composition and which are organic.

Pillows also come with pillow covers. These pillow covers may have designs and prints on them which you can choose according to your preference. Note that the pillow covers should also have the same composition as the pillows.

Bedding also consists of a bedding mattress sheet which comes in a wide variety of choices in prints, style and design. Some designs are even gender-specific and have themes which may complement the colors and the look of the nursery room. The mattress sheet should have the right measurement to that of the mattress to allow for a perfect fit and to discourage any slips for when your baby is moving around in his crib. Select only the 100% cotton fabric and which can be washed and will sustain after several wash cycles. Use mild detergent washing powder for washing as opposed to the stronger ones as this may produce rash when in contact with the skin of your baby.
