    I have had about 3 different types of fitted cotbed sheets and none of them fit properly. LO cotbed is next to our bed but that doesn't leave a lot of space left so it's a struggle to change his bed without taking the mattress out, which is why I prefer fitted to flat, but these sheets only just cover the top of the mattress and don't even come halfway down the sides nevermind all the way around like I thought they were meant to.

    Does anyone else have this problem? What sheets did you find best for you?

    It might depend on where you got the cotbed from. Ours is from Mamas and Papas and the sizes are very slightly different from standard sizes so we need to buy the bedding from there. Cheeky hey?

    We have a Mamas and Papas cotbed, we bought some cot bed sheets from Dunelm Mill which are slightly too small, but the ones from Mothercare fit fine.

    yeah we have had this problem too. but the annoying thing is, i bought a set from asda that fit fine then i bought another set from asda and they didnt fit :wacko: but they wouldnt take them back (even tho i had some previously that fit?) i have some from matalan now that fit fine.

    if you can find out where the cotbed is from best bet is to buy sheets from the same shop.
