Sheets, sheets & more sheets...

I'm posting in the hope that someone can help me make sense of the seemingly millions of varieties of sheets I may need for when my baby makes an appearance...

I have:

Chicco next to me
Mamas & papas Cotbed
Stokke carrycot

I'm loathe to buy the "proper" sheets for the branded items as they retail for approx £40 a go...can I use flat sheets safely?
Also M&P mattresses are a slightly different size to standard ones aren't they?

I'm not sure of the dimensions for yours but Ikea make 60x120 sheets and are very reasonable?

For the sleepyhead and carrycot I never used a sheet, just put a fresh muslin down under him each time (but did have a waterproof mattress protector on). If you're using the sleepyhead in the Chicco then you don't need a sheet on that. Ikea do cheap cot bed sheets.

Use muslins and pillow cases for the first while, at least. Definitely don't buy specific sheets as you baby night not even settle in them.

Thanks! I was getting a bit dizzy at the cost of extra sheets..! So next q, best place for large muslin squares?

I agree with others waterproof cover and large Muslins! The best large Muslins I got were Aden and Anais, my son is 3 and I still keep one now, can't bear to get rid it's so lovely. You can also buy them from Amazon.

Pillowcases are perfect for the carrycot. I got fitted cotbed sheets from asda

Tk maxx is great for muslins. I didn't like them for my sicky baby and preferred burp clothes but I seem to be on my own in that. Just try not to over buy

Pillowcases - can you still buy standard pram sheets from mother are and JL?

Aldi do huge muslins during their baby and toddler event. The ones I have were a metre square

Some good fitted cotton sheets for the chicco next2me crib on amazon for around £6.50 ish, I've bought two and washed and tried them ahead of baby's arrival. I'm rather pleased with them and glad I haven't spent money on the branded ones!
