    You shouldnt use a quilt until they are 1 as it can cause them to overheat, just use cellular blankets (which you can get in moses basket size) and of course a sheet for them to lie on xx

    As said above, no quilt. Cellular blankets. You can get fitted sheets. They're so easy to change, especially in comparison to our double/queen/king size beds :haha:

    Edit - amount of blankets will depend on room temperature and what baby is wearing but I found one enough (summer baby).

    Cellular blanket (first link I saw, you can shop around)

    thanks for the replies everyone :)
    one more question - are the sheets likely to need to be changed in the night (from accidents etc), if so, how many sheets should I get? xx

    pram sized sheets, get at least 4, you'll be doing laundry ofter anyway, but they are quiet mucusy in the early days and spit up often, also just wanted to add that when you fold over a larger blanket it counts as 2 or even 4 layers, so be careful, i'd my lo wrapped in a beautiful blanket, that was folded twice to fit in the moses basket, on a june evening, and mw went a bit mad, saying it was four layer and too much, get the right size for the moses basket and check baby ofter for signs of over heating, back of neck is best, not hands. i'll never make the same mistake again, although nervous that this baby will be in a different season....the rule change all the time!

    the one ive ordered didn't say if it came with sheets or anything so will have to wait for it to be delivered but even so, I'm sure I'd need more than just the one it came with? :shrug:

    no ive never seen ones that come with sheets as you always have to get a matress and then sheets for it:flower:

    Just had a look at the cheapest John Lewis one says coverlet and mattress included so I presume for that one for example you just need to buy sheets for the mattress as the coverlet is like a quilt so you don't need anything on top?!?! Thought I'd got this all sussed but maybe not now :(

    I just looked on the site at the one I ordered and it says mattress is included but doesn't say anything about the cover or sheets, I'm guessing I'll have to buy these separately. x

    yeh i think some come with matresses i got one with the one i got but no sheets! you would only need 4 at the most think about all the washing you will be doing they go through so many vests etc so you will always have one clean anyway :)
