You’ll lose count how many times you change your baby’s sheets but you don’t have to lose your mind doing it with QuickZip Sheets. These sheets are made up of two parts, the base that the mattress sits in and the flat top sheet that zips on and off. These sheets are not only super safe but you’ll be able to get them off quick for middle of the night sheet changes, no need to wrestle crib slats. One mom even claims it’s so easy she can do it with one hand!
The Catch: If you’re using a standard mattress pad you’ll need to change that too which wouldn’t be easy with these. HINT: use a flat mattress pad instead.
Just as important as the mattress itself is the mattress protector pad. After all you wouldn’t want to ruin the mattress you just bought after just one late night accident because that’ll happen. Naturepedic Mattress Pad Protectors are organic so you won’t have to worry about your little one lying their head on any chemicals. Probably one of the most important parts is that it washes easily, so you won’t be left scratching your head after that first sheet change. Sheet Changing Hack: Buy two and layer your sheets and protectors so you’re not stumbling to do the whole job in the middle of the night, just rip off the first two layers! You can thank us later…
The Catch: A bit pricey for a mattress pad but might be worth it depending on how much you spent on the mattress itself.
If you’re a fan of aden + anais, this is another item to add to your collection. They are just as soft as the swaddle blankets and get softer with each wash. These are nice and thin for the summer and warm for the winter. The breathable material makes the sheet light and airy. Since they’re made from muslin they don’t get cold like regular cotton sheets will. These sheets come in a variety of cute patterns making it easy to change things up in the nursery. Parents love them so much they want them in regular bed sizes too!
The Catch: While we love the soft and thin muslin material it snags easily
