Flannel and Organic Cotton Fitted Baby Crib Sheets Sets
Besides cloth diapers, fitted baby crib sheets are perhaps the most washed item in your baby's room yet many new mothers don't see the importance of loading up on crib sheet sets. When decorating nurseries, I'm often amazed that no extra crib sheets were purchased along with the baby bedding.
It's always a good idea to buy as many sets of matching sheets as you can afford especially if the fabric has a distinctive pattern that adds a lot to the look of the bedding. Even if the fabric and the elastic in the corners of the fitted crib sheets wear like iron, there will be special occasions when friends and family are expected that faded cotton sheets just won't look nice enough.
Keeping ALL of your crib bedding clean is essential but chances are that the crib quilt, comforter or bumper won't be washed nearly as often as your baby's sheets. In fact, you should probably expect to wash the crib sheets once a day and I hate to be the one to tell you, but there will be days when you change them more than once. Babies spit up, even the most fitted diapers leak; it's just a fact of life. And no matter how carefully you wash your baby crib sheets using the most gentle laundry detergent the colors are bound to fade.
The bottom line is that like diapers, you just can't have too many baby crib sheets.
