    Just bought a moses basket and surprised that the mattress is covered in a plasticy waterproof material. Is this standard? Does this not increase risk of suffocation?

    Also is is best to use terry towling or jersey fitted sheets?

    And as for cellular blankets - I'm guessing cotton is much better than any kind of acrylic ones?

    Any advice welcomed as only just starting to look into bedding! Thank you!

    Ive folded a flat cot sheet in half and used that for my moses basket! Couldnt really justify buying the small sheets as they wouldnt be used for long.

    brilliant idea! thank you :) We've got a set of fitted sheets for the plastic 'mattress' and will be using a 2.5 tog Gro bag for our LO

    Now the pillowcases have been mentioned we'll use those as spares whilst others are being washed.

    Pillowcase is a brilliant idea! Thanks. I have been wondering what to use and was a little stumped. I've been given blankets and sleeping bags so will just see what works when LO appears.
