Baby bedding - size and quality matter
Almost a third of his life a little child spends in a dream. Yes, and older children are very important to get enough sleep and have a good rest - on this depends their activity, efficiency and mood for the next day. Yes, and go to bed the guys more like a soft, comfortable bed, and not in bed, where the "hard sheet" and "biting blanket." And the guarantee of a cozy and quiet sleep, of course, is the competently chosen bed linen.
Baby bedding: size, pattern, quality
You can talk a lot about what should be the ideal baby clothes. Which set to choose: colorful with bright and large drawings or simple with a little abstraction? And, maybe, completely monophonic? From calico or calico? However, one fact remains unchallenged - it is necessary that the sleeping accessories are of high quality, and sleeping on them should be comfortable.
Today, there are a variety of options for bed linens for children - with pictures of favorite characters from fairy tales and cartoons, sleepy cubs and affectionately smiling stars. For each age, you can choose the appropriate pattern and color. The main thing is not to make a mistake with the choice of the manufacturer. How often, buying cheap goods of foreign origin, immediately after getting to know the washing machine, we are horrified to see that the laundry has faded, the picture has turned into a fuzzy blotch spot, and the dimensions of the bed-steel are several times smaller.
How to determine the size?
The usual set, whether it is adult or child's, consists of a sheet, a pair of pillowcases and a duvet cover. However, the size paper for each is different. For example, the dimensions of children's bed linen in a newborn's crib will look like this: a pillowcase - 40x60, a quilt cover - 112x146, a sheet - 127x146 centimeters.
When choosing a bed for a child, it is important to remember that the children's skin reacts easily to any dye added to the coloring of the laundry. Therefore, it is not worth chasing such fashionable drawings of princesses and machines, ponies and cartoon characters. For crumbs, a monophonic set with a small, discreet pattern is best for you. A set of newborns is supplemented with a protective edge, canopy, pillow, mattress pad and side pockets, which also should be selected in one color scheme.
For older children
The sizes of children's bed-clothes in a crib are slightly smaller, than standard for the grown up kid. For a child of a kindergarten age it is better to purchase a kit with the following dimensions: sheet - 100x145, pillowcase - 40x60, quilt cover - 110x145 centimeters. Immediately it should be said that there are also euro-sizes, which are much larger than domestic ones. Therefore, before buying it is necessary to look not only at the coloring, but also on the sizes of children's bed linen. The table is usually drawn on the label of the kit.
You also need to carefully study the composition. The material (calico, calico, linen, satin, cotton) should not contain toxic compounds, and also smell strongly - this directly shows that the paint contains unsafe dyes. Buying a children's bed linen, the dimensions should be taken into account. In this case, it is worth noting accessories with seams. They will give the child a constant discomfort.
Bedding for teens
The sizes of children's bed-clothes, certainly, differ from the versions sewed for teenagers. For children of this age there is a standard size table. For example, a pillow case should be at a level of 50x70 cm, a sheet - 150x220, and the size of a duvet cover will increase - 145х215 centimeters. The only thing that remains unchanged is the choice of quality when buying. Looking at the color options, you can safely put into play fantasy. For teenagers the brightest and bold decisions will approach: beginning from avant-garde and finishing with newfangled heroes of fairy tales, animated series, films.
Again, it is worth paying attention to the woven composition. Better to abandon the kit, the synthetic content of which will exceed the natural basis. Despite the fact that the skin of older children is not as receptive as that of babies, it's still not worth risking your health. So, what should we know first of all, selecting baby bedding? We are obliged to study the size and composition of the material.
What else do you need to know?
What can happen if you incorrectly pick up baby bedding? The size of the selected kit should match the dimensions of the bed. Usually standard values are given, but in fact today many bedrooms are made on an individual order, and, hence, the data may simply not coincide. Going for the laundry, it is worth to measure the length and width of the bed in advance, so that later it does not turn out that bedding is simply not enough.
How can I know the size of the baby bedding? The table is usually located on the label of the kit - in any case, from domestic manufacturers. Questions can arise with Chinese bed linens, the composition and size of which are usually indicated in their own language. It is best to immediately abandon such acquisitions, however profitable and inexpensive they may seem.
Why is it important to choose a bed by age?
In fact, it is really important when you buy baby bedding. The size, seemingly having a slight difference, can not greatly affect the child's sleep. In fact, it can. From this directly depends on how comfortable the baby will feel in a dream.
For example, baby bedding. The sizes are given for three age groups, with calculation of mobility of the child, its body weight, and also pastime on a bed. After all, if the babe sleeps most of the day, then the teen spends only the night hours on the bed.
To the newborn is not confused in a dream in the sheet, it is made slightly more than the one that comes in the standard kit. The size of the child's bed linen in the crib will be different from sleeping accessories for teenagers - it's even funny to imagine an adult youth sleeping under a blanket covering only half of it. Quality, composition and size are the main factors that determine how comfortable the baby will be during sleep.
