Sizes of sets of baby bedding by age of the child

The task of parents is to create the conditions for a comfortable baby sleep in the bedroom. During sleep, children restore energy spent per day, grow, gain strength for a new day. An important choice is not only pajamas, a plaid, blankets, bedspreads, but also the bedding set itself. The sizes of bed sets for children are chosen according to the age of the child and the dimensions of the bed.

Standard sizes for baby bedding sets

There is a difference between sets for children, newborns, adolescents. When choosing the size of a set of baby bedding, measure the dimensions of the bed (length, width, height), blankets and pillows.

In most cases, the child sleeps in a single bed. The standard sizes for single bedding are:

  • Duvet cover - width 115 cm, length 147 cm;
  • Sheet - 120 cm in width and 150 cm in length;
  • Pillowcase - 40 cm wide, 60 cm long.

When buying children's sleeping sets, it is important to pay attention to the type of fabric, its naturalness and the quality of the dyes. For baby bedding, manufacturers use:

  • Cotton (soft and environmentally friendly);
  • Satin (dense silk fabric with a smooth and shiny face);
  • Chintz (lightweight cotton material);
  • Flax (smooth surface, matte gloss);
  • Satin Suite (strong, shiny);
  • Poplin (cotton, silk);
  • Polyester (synthetic, soft material).

Ranfors and supercotton are also used for sewing a crib; occasionally, nylon and silk. Cotton fabrics - calico and satin - are durable and have a tight binding, so the price of sets of them is slightly higher than the rest.

Pay attention to the inscription on the label: at what temperatures (revolutions) do you need to dry and wash your chosen linen. The set will serve you longer, will not shed, deform. And as a result of use, the bed will not become, for example, less than the length of the bed .-
