    hello,

    i'm VERY confused about toddler beds.

    we have been offered a toddler bed (i think a john lewis one) from a friend.

    originally i had considered going straight for a single bed but as we're being offered one then i'm considering a toddler bed as it'll allow my LO more space in her room for a few years. :thumbup:

    the issue I have is that i'm not sure what duvet covers fit a toddler bed as i've been having alook and most covers are either cot, cot bed or single bed.

    Where did those with toddler beds get sheets and duvet covers from?

    also, what tog duvets have you got? :shrug:

    Cot bed. Junior bed.

    Will both fit and are the same size. Personally I got a duvet in Asda baby event and her covers from Next to match her new room. However Ive seen them in marks and spencer, mammas and pappas and mothercare

    Hope that helps :flower:

    I bought a set from kiddicare (got the bed, mattress, duvet, pillow and a set of covers in a set for £100! :thumbup:) and I was looking on ebay, mothercare, babies r us, and asda to get a spare set and fitted sheets. I just looked for junior/toddler bed or cotbed.

    You could have visited the site of your prospected toddler bed. I am sure they have the details and specifications about it online.

    Our toddler bed uses the cot bed sheets. I also decided to buy a normal single duvet (4.5 tog) so when she moves into a big bed we can use the same duvet and you can also buy single duvet covers and pillow sets from anywhere really. I just tuck some of the duvet underneath the mattress at the bottom to stop her pulling it up over her head. xx

    oh thanks! I wondered if i could use a single duvet and cover as that'll be alot easier to find but was a little worried about the safety aspect.

    i guess, as you say, it'll be fine as long as you tuck it under.

    i think the toddler bed is from john lewis but they dont seem to have toddler duvets and sheeting which is what made me confused. also, unless you get sale items, thier duvet covers for LO's are V expensive in my opinion
