4 tips for choosing the perfect nursery bedding

Choosing the perfect nursery bedding is an important, but fun task for any parent-to-be. Finding the perfect nursery bedding not only adds the finishing touches to your baby's nursery, but it also plays an essential role in creating a comfortable and safe sleep environment for your little one. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to narrow down your choices. To help you make the best decision, here are 4 tips for choosing the perfect nursery bedding: 

Consider the material and fabric 

When it comes to nursery bedding, the material and fabric are necessary factors to consider. Look for bedding made from high-quality, breathable materials like cotton or linen. These materials are soft, comfortable, and allow for proper air circulation, helping to prevent overheating. Avoid synthetic materials like polyester or nylon, as they can trap heat and moisture, leading to discomfort for your baby. Olli+Lime fabrics are 100% cotton percale and twill, printed with water-based inks and free from toxic substances.

Pay attention to the care instructions

Between diaper leaks, spit-ups, and general wear and tear, your nursery bedding is going to get dirty. That's why it's important to choose bedding that is easy to care for. Look for items that are machine washable and dryer friendly, as this will make it easier to keep your bedding clean and fresh. Avoid dry-clean only items, as they can be costly and inconvenient to care for. For Olli+Lime products, machine wash cold, do not use bleach or detergents containing bleach, tumble dry low. Warm iron.

Choose the right size

When it comes to nursery bedding, size matters. Make sure to check or measure your baby's crib or bassinet before purchasing bedding to ensure that you get the right fit. Too small and the bedding may not cover the entire mattress, leading to gaps that can pose a safety hazard for your little one. Too large and the bedding may bunch up, creating a potential suffocation hazard.
