Baby bedding - size and quality matter
Almost a third of his life a small child spends in a dream. Yes, and it is very important for older children to get enough sleep and rest well - their activity, performance and mood for the whole next day depend on it. Yes, and the guys go to bed more like a soft, comfortable bed, and not in the bed, where the "hard sheet" and "biting blanket." And the key to a comfortable and restful sleep, of course, is well-chosen bed linen.
Baby bedding: size, pattern, quality
You can talk a lot about what should be the perfect baby clothes. What set to choose: colorful with bright and large drawings or simple with a small abstraction? And, maybe, absolutely monophonic? Of calico or calico? However, one fact remains indisputable - it is necessary that the bedding should be of high quality, and it should be comfortable to sleep on them.
Nowadays, there are a variety of options for bedding for children - with the image of your favorite characters from fairy tales and cartoons, sleepy teddy bears and affectionately smiling stars. For each age you can choose the appropriate pattern and color. The main thing is not to be mistaken with the choice of the manufacturer. As often when buying a cheap product of foreign origin, immediately after exploring the washing machine, we are horrified to see that the laundry faded, the pattern turned into a blurred faded spot, and the size of the bed became several times smaller.
How to determine the size?
An ordinary set, whether it is an adult or child, consists of a bed sheet, a pair of pillowcases and a duvet cover. However, the size of the article for each different. For example, the dimensions of baby bedding in a newborn's bed will look like this: a pillowcase - 40x60, a duvet cover - 112x146, a sheet - 127x146 centimeters.
When choosing a bed for a child, it is important to remember that children's skin responds easily to any dye added when coloring clothes. Therefore, you should not chase after such fashionable drawings of princesses and typewriters, ponies and cartoon characters. For the crumbs, a monochromatic set with a small, unobtrusive pattern is best suited. A set of newborns is supplemented with a protective side, canopy, pillow, mattress pad and side pockets, which also should be chosen in the same color scheme.
For older children
The size of baby bedding in the crib is slightly smaller than the standard for an older baby. For a child of kindergarten age, it is better to purchase a set with the following dimensions: sheets - 100x145, pillowcase - 40x60, duvet cover - 110x145 centimeters. At once it should be said that there are also Euro-sizes, which are much larger than domestic ones. Therefore, before buying, you should definitely look not only at the colors, but also at the size of children's bed linen. The table is usually drawn on the kit label.
You also need to carefully examine the composition. The material (chintz, calico, flax, satin, cotton) should not contain toxic compounds, and also smell strong - this will directly show that the paint contains unsafe dyes. When buying a baby bedding set, dimensions need to be considered. At the same time it is necessary to refuse accessories with seams. They will give the child constant discomfort.
Bed for teens
The sizes of children's bed linen, of course, differ from the options made for teens. For children of this age has its own standard size table. For example, a pillowcase should be at the level of 50x70 cm, a sheet - 150x220, the size of the duvet cover - 145x215 centimeters will increase. One thing remains unchanged - the choice of quality upon purchase. Looking at the color options, you can safely use fantasy. The brightest and bold decisions will be suitable for teenagers: from avant-gardism to the newfangled heroes of fairy tales, animated series, films.
Again, it is worth paying attention to the woven composition. It is better to abandon the kit, the synthetic content of which will exceed the natural bases. Despite the fact that the skin of older children is not as susceptible as in babies, it’s still not worth risking health. So, what should we know first of all, picking up baby bedding? We are obliged to study the size and composition of the material.
What you need to know more?
What can happen if you choose the wrong baby bedding? The size of the selected set must match the size of the bed. Standard values are usually given, but today many bedrooms are made on an individual order, and, therefore, the data may simply not be the same. When going for the laundry, you should measure the length and width of the bed in advance, so that later it would not turn out that the bedding is just a little.
How can I find the size of baby bedding? The table is usually located on the kit label - at least with domestic manufacturers. Questions may arise with Chinese bedding, the composition and magnitude of which is usually indicated in their own language. It is best to immediately abandon such acquisitions, no matter how profitable and inexpensive they may seem.
Why is it important to choose a bed by age?
In fact, this is really important when you buy baby bedding. The size, it would seem, having a slight difference, can not greatly affect the sleep of the child. In fact, it can. It 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 the calculation of the mobility of the child, his body weight, and also spending time on the bed. After all, if a baby sleeps most of the day, the teenager spends only night hours on the bed.
So that the newborn does not get entangled in a dream in a sheet, it is made a little more than the one that is included in the standard kit. The size of the children's bed linen in the crib will differ from the bedding for teenagers - it is even ridiculous to imagine an adult young man sleeping under a duvet cover that covers him only by half. Quality, composition and size are the main factors that determine how comfortable a child will be during sleep.
