      EASY TO MAINTAIN AND DURABLE

      I purchased these flannelette flat cot sheets after buying the fitted jersey cot sheets and being very satisfied with them also.

      These sheets are available from Mothercare and they come in a pack of two.You can buy them in a choice of two sizes;
      cot/cot bed for £11.99
      moses basket/crib/pram for £7.99
      The sheets are available in the following colours;
      white,cream,lemon,pink and blue.

      I brought a pair of blue sheets for my son's cot at £12.These sheets are made from a brushed cotton material making them very soft to touch and therfore very comfortable for your child.I personally preferred to use the fitted sheets underneath my son as they covered the mattress perfectly and I used these flat sheets on top to cover him and provide extra layering under his blankets depending on the amount of warmth my son required.The fact that they are made of 100% cotton means that they are breatheable and therefore more appropriate for mothers who worry about their child getting too warm.

      I found that these sheets when washed at 40 degrees as recommended by Mothercare were very easy to maintain as they did not fade in colour and nor did they bobble despite heavy usage.The only downside I found was that they were slightly highly priced otherwise I would have given these sheets a full 5 stars.

      I bought these cot bed sheets for my grandchildren for in our house when they come to stay. They are a standard cot bed size so should fit all cot bed mattresses. I thought they were really good at first but they don't actually withstand a lot of use.

      We bought them in a pack of two in an off white colour, kind of like putty. They were also available in other colours, mainly pastels so there is a variety depending upon your colour schemes of the bedroom. We chose putty as we thought it would be neutral enough to suit all of the grandchildren.

      We got two packs; flat sheets and fitted sheets. I find the fitted sheets were faster to put on the mattress but that the flat ones looked more comfortable as though they lay properly whereas the fitted ones looked as though they were a bit too stretched and almost made the mattress bend.

      They were quite soft to touch so nice to lie on for a baby.

      After a few washes we were still pleased with them. They didn't bobble up and they remained in good quality so we were pleased.

      Now, however, we have noticed lots of little holes appearing in the sheets. We have had them a year but don't use them regularly and they are not washed constantly due to my grandchildren not using them all that often so for holes to have appeared is disappointing. You wouldn't expect this from a well known brand like Mothercare. We are now going to buy some new ones to replace these and we will be buying them from somewhere else.

        Disadvantages

        Recommended.

        I generally bought most of my sons bedding from Mothercare, simply because I think the products are really good quality and are also good value. The Mothercare Flannelette cot-bed sheets games came in packs of two, and although I cannot remember exactly what I paid for them, they are currently being sold at Mothercare for £11.99 - which equates to about £6.00 per sheet. I think this is a fairly good price, and although there are cheaper cot sheets on the market, I think these are about the best quality for that price bracket.

        There are a variety of colours to pick from - and the colours are all quite standard colours. There are white, greeny-blue, blue, pink, lemon and cream sheets available, and I opted for the lemon and blue, simply because I thought these were the nicest shades. There are two different sizes of sheets to choose from also, one that will fit a moses basket and one that will fit a cot mattress. I was only interested in the sheets that fitted the cot mattress which I think would fit most cot mattresses because it is a good size. The sheet measures 120 cm x 155 cm which, as I said, is a really good size and fitted over his mattress easily. It is not the style of sheet that fits over the mattress, but the type of sheet that folds underneath and so it's not necessary to get an exact size. The sheets are made of flannelette cotton which is wonderfully soft and snuggly and I even remember from my own childhood how much I loved flannelette sheets! They are not only comfortable, but they also wear well.

        These sheets can be machine washed and tumble dried and they always come out good as new. Infact, with washing, I think they come out even smoother and softer and so these lasted for the duration of the time my son was in a cot.

        Overall, I think these are good quality sheets for a cot mattress and I can definitely recommend them.

        Soft sheets at a good price

        Our youngest granddaughter was born a few months ago so I was often invited to go and look around the baby shops. It is unbelievable how times have changed, years ago cot sheets were often home-made efforts that started life as a sheet for a double bed. Mothercare is a fabulous shop and I have to admit that I am smitten with Mamas and Papas.

        Naturally as grandparents we wanted to buy a small gift for the new baby. After making enquiries my daughter said that a couple of sleepsuits would be much appreciated and she really needed some cot bed sheets. Cot beds sheets may not be a terribly exciting present but they are a very useful one.

        Mothercare stock cotton sheets, jersey sheets and flannelette sheets. Some are fitted bed sheets and some are flat. After looking at all of the options we decided that flat cotbed sheets were the best choice and soft flannelette sheets would be so cosy for the new baby to sleep in.

        I was particularly pleased with the price of a pair of cotbed sheets. They worked out at just under £10 a pair. Mothercare have the sheets in a good range of colours that should satisfy everyone. The colour range includes pink, white, lemon, aqua, blue and cream. All of the colours are soft shades that are suitable for tiny babies.

        For the last baby my daughter bought some fitted sheets and she found to her cost that the elastic edging wouldn't stay in place. The fitted sheets kept popping off of the corners of the cotbed mattress. The flat sheets measure 120 by 155 cm and that allows enough spare to tuck right under the cotbed mattress. The nursery is pink and the sheets were bought to match.

        The Mothercare flat sheets are 100 percent cotton. The surface of the cotton fabric is brushed and that makes the sheets feel lovely and soft. The sheets are machine washable and they would need to be because they are now in and out of the washing machine like a yo-yo. When you unpack the sheets they feel super soft but new bedding has to be washed before it is used. The cotbed sheets were washed for the first time and they felt good.

        The cotton fabric that the sheets are made from is reasonably thick so the sheets should be fairly hard wearing. Even the tiniest of babies can stain bed sheets and the cotton sheets have now been treated to a few good hot washes and have come out well. It may be labour intensive but my daughter often runs the iron over the sheets if they have been dried on the washing line. Quite rightly she says that the warm iron makes the brushed cotton sheets feel softer.

        The pink sheets are still pink, they have not faded in the hot wash. The surface of the brushed cotton still feels rich and soft and the edging seams are well sewn down. In the warmer weather a brushed cotton sheet could act as a thin blanket for nap time, I am sure it would be warm and comfy.

        So far, so good. The brushed cotton cotbed sheets have washed well and they are wearing well. The sheets were on sale at a good affordable price and they came from a well respected baby store.

          See review

          I am a huge fan of flannelette sheets and always have them on my bed so when I was pregnant I knew that I would be having the same type of sheets for the cot, my one problem being that I wasn't too sure where I would get a cot size sheet from as where I got them from only made them from single size upwards.

          When visiting Mothercare I noticed they sold them there so I was well chuffed and decided to pick up a couple - even better when I saw they were on buy one get one half price! Even though I was convinced I was having a girl I had decided to just buy white sheets initially but after seeing the lemon colour I quickly changed my mind.

          The sheets are available in the following colours:

          White
          Lemon
          Cream ( Two shades )
          Pink ( Two shades )
          Blue ( Two shades )
          Aqua ( Two shades )

          I think the colour range is quite good they will co-ordinate with most baby bedding. I think the only other colour I would have liked to have seen there was mint but thats just because I have a friend who had chosen a mint themed nursery.

          Flannelette is a 100% cotton, soft brushed fabric that makes it feel extra soft against your baby's precious skin and also makes it extra warm. It is said that flannelette makes it warm in winter but cool in summer - I am not sure how this works but I have found that it really does!!

          The sheets come in two sizes - moses basket 70cm x 90cm and cotbed 120cm x 155cm. They are a flat sheet rather than fitted which makes it easier to tuck the sheet under the mattress however I have found that there isn't enough sheet left to tuck in after covering the mattress - this is the one bad thing I have found with these sheets as it is important to have plenty of tuck in which makes sure the sheet stays in place.

          These sheets wash extremely well, and after plenty of use the sheets were still in good condition with no bobbling that can happen with some sheets. The cost of these sheets are £11.99 for two sheets which is a reasonable price. I now buy single sized sheets for my daughters cotbed as they fit much better than these cotbed sheets!

          My daughter seems to enjoy sleeping on these sheets, on one occasion I had to use a polycotton sheet for her to sleep on and she really didn't have a good sleep - is that coincidence? They are so cosy to sleep on and the bed never feels cold to get into with one of them on!

          As much as I love flannelette bedding, I am not sure whether I would recommend these sheets as they aren't a great size for a cotbed, and with them being cotton there is always a risk of 10% shrinkage after the first wash so it could be an even tighter fit. They are lovely quality and that can't be faulted so just double check your sizes before buying and if they will fit then I would say go for it as they are lovely.

          I would normally give flannelette sheets a top score of five out of five stars but as these don't seem to fit some beds I can only give them three stars!

          Thank you for reading my review :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Wonderfully soft sheets - if only adult bedding were as good!

          When we started looking for bedding for the cotbed we purchased, we didn't realise what a mine-field it would be. There was so much choice, what would we buy?

          In the end, we went to Mothercare for our bedding, and we purchased some of the flannelette cotbed sheets, in a lovely lemon colour (because at that point, we were unaware of baby's gender!).

          Now, before we got them, we read some reviews on the Mothercare website - these were quite variable, and some customers said that sometimes they didn't always fit the cotbed mattress properly. So we decided to get one pack (which contained 2 sheets) to try, and found that we had no problem with this. They were perfect!

          They are soft, easy to wash and wonderful against your skin - I only wish our own sheets were so lovely! We also purchased the fitted sheets for the cotbed too, as we liked them so much!

          Unfortunately though, baby doesn't like to be constricted by sheets and we've had to resort to a dreampod for her, but we still use the fitted sheets.

          Mothercare are top of the league in my opinion for bedding, and they often have special deals on - we got our bedding for buy one get one half price, which was a bargain! They have a whole range of colours so whatever your nursery colour scheme, you will find a set of bedding to suit!

          THE ULTIMATE IN COMFORT FOR BABY.

          When I had my babies, I chose to have flannelette material sheets. I wasn't particularly sure which type of sheet to choose initially. However when visiting Mothercare, I was really very impressed with the quality and feel of the flannelette sheets. They came in a variety of pretty pastel colours. Which offered suitability to both boy and girl needs.

          The feeling of these flannelette sheets when fitted onto the cotbed, can not really be put into words. It gives such a warm and soothing atmosphere. The flannelette is so soft and comforting. It offers a much more luxurious and caring sheet than one from cotton.

          I also found that they wash to a very high standard. I was amazed how well they kept their shape, quality of material and colour. Although I did notice when I had my son that the blue cotbed sheet did lose it's colour slightly after a few washes and became quite faded. Which made me feel quite disappointed.

          I have to admit, I have never experienced any problems with these flannelette cotbed sheets. I was really pleased with the size of these sheets as they fitted my cotbed exceptionally well. I did find that some sheets of other branding were too small to fit on the cotbed. However these had lots of room and fitted superbly.

          I am also impressed with the strength of the material. Despite being used a lot of the time, their was not signs of wear. No thinning of the material or fraying of the edges. I was quite impressed with the neat and sturdy stiching on the sheet, which remained in tact despite constant use.

          I think these flannelette cot bed sheets are of an excellent standard. I think they offer a more caring and luxurious bed for baby. I always felt that when my babies were sleeping on Flannelette sheets, not only did baby seem to appear more comforted I also had a better peace of mind. This is because I knew they offered warmth and protection and also fitted well so there was no creases in the material underneath baby.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Wash well and remain nice and soft

          Mothercare have a good variety of products to suit many of your babys bedding needs. There range of Flannelette Cotbed Sheets is very nice and offers a good variety of pastel shades to suit boys and girls. The sheets are nice and soft to the touch, which means they are snuggly enough for even a very young baby.

          If I compare them to the Mothercare Terry Sheets we have also bought before, these Mothercare Flannelette Cotbed Sheets are a much better buy. Of course being a flat as opposed to a fitted sheet they will need to be tucked in, but I think this is a a good option for a set of cot sheets, although fitted bottom sheets are also nice.

          **********************************************************
          Price wise Mothercare Flannelette Cotbed Sheets are £11.99 in the larger cot bed size. The dimensions for this size are 120cmx wide x 155cms long, which should give just enough material to tuck the sheets in nicely over your cot mattress. Although these are also recommended for the small cot beds you can buy, they don't fit every cot bed and we found them a little bit of a tight fit towards the top and bottom of the bed and so they could have been just a little longer perhaps.

          The smaller sized sheets fit small moses baskets and cribs and can even be used to line a pram. They cost £6.99 for a pack of 2 and are 70cms wide x 90cms long. We used these over a small slim crib mattress which we bought to use in the pram, as we felt it gave a nice soft and even surface for a new born baby. Obviously an older child will be sitting up more and will not need a similar surface, so the sheets won't be needed for this type of use.

          **********************************************************
          You can buy your Mothercare Flannelette Cotbed Sheets in the following colours, a nice crisp white - that washes well and cane be kept fairly bright and white if washed correctly. A pale delicate lemon - that is lovely and fresh looking and will suit a variety of nursery themes. There are 2 options for the pink tones and you get one of each - a sweet little pale pink colour, plus a slightly deeper pink, great for little girls.

          There is also a soft cream shade and a slightly darker cream - which sometimes is very hard to find in baby bedding, these both match well if you are having a teddy bear or similar theme to your nursery and tie in nicely with the light beige and soft browns to make a very relaxing babys first bedroom.

          Finally there is also a pale blue and a slightly deeper but still soft blue - for little boys and a soft pale Aqua shade which is complimented by a slightly deeper Aqua, both of which are suitable for boys or girls and are perfect for under the sea type nursey themes, with all the little sea creatures and soft toy accessories to set it off a treat.

          **********************************************************
          Mothercare Flannelette Cotbed Sheets are nice and soft as they are made out of a soft brushed fabric. This is really good for taking the chill off of bedding during cold snaps and a means you aren't placing your baby or toddler on to a chilly feeling surface. I wouldn't want to use the sheets in summer as you want the opposite effect then and need to aim for sheets with a cool crisp effect.

          Whilst the sheets are nice and soft and also wash well, they are a little short in length for some beds and mattresses, so you will need to have a quick measure up before purchasing. These sheets are perfect as a top sheet and can be used as a bottom sheet tucked under the mattress of some cots and cribs etc.

          Rating wise I fell these deserve 4 stars, as they remain soft and fluffy when washed and do fit most cot sizes. They won't fit larger cot beds, as bottom sheets, so I feel the labels are a bit mis -leading when they are marked up as a product that will do that job. Other than that they are a nice little product that come in some very pretty colours.

            nice item

            Today I've been shopping again in Mothercare for my daughters new baby which is due in November, I bought Mothercare Flannelette Cotbed Sheet as they a we are beginning to get things ready for the nursery. she has had her scan and everything is ok and we found out that the baby is a boy, so I bought light blue, lemon, cream and aqua and they cost me £12.99 for one pack of two sheets. the crib sheets are cheaper at £6.99

            They are flannelette which is a soft warm and comfortable material, we figured as the baby is due ion winter we should buy things that will keep him warm.
            Flannelette has been around for years and it is a soft spun yarn It is commonly used to make clothing, bed sheets, and sleepwear, it is often made from either wool and cotton, or wool and synthetic fibre.
            Fabric similar to flannel can be traced back to Wales, where it was well known as early as the 16th century. So it is probably Welsh in origin.

            The cot sheets are machine washable which makes them easy to manage and these are 100% cotton which is good for babies skin. They are available in white, lemon, 2 cream tones, 2 pink tones, 2 blue tones and 2 aqua tones. this is a good choice of bedding to suit both girls and boys as well as kepping them warm and snugly.

            The sizes available are Moses/Crib: 70 x 90cm, Cot/Cot bed: 120 x 155cm this is good for both crib and cot as my daughter is getting both crib for her bedroom and cot for the babies nursery, so she can feed int he middle of the night and put the baby in the crib, so we will have to buy extra sheets.

            I'm happy with the price i paid as you get two sheets in each packet which is good value for your money as well as getting a good quality brand item. I like to buy Mothercare products as they are always in stock and the returns guarantee is good either money back or replacement item but you have to keep your reciept to get a refund.

            When your washing 100% cotton items you have to be careful not to put them on a hot wash or they will shrink, but i have bought it before so know how to care for it.
            I am very happy with my purchase and the quality of the cot sheets, they are nice colours and are soft and cuddly. If your looking for a good cot sheet them Mothercare is a good place to look. I will be going back for some more in due course.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Mothercare do a lovely range of cots for babies, and to go in them, they also offer a range of bedding. It does help having a cot and bedding of comparable sizes. The flannelette is not fitted, so you can use it as an under sheet if you want - it is big enough, or as an over sheet. You shouldn't put babies under duvet like coverings as they can get to hot, but blankets tend to wander if you have a baby who wriggles a lot. If you fold the top of the sheet over the blankets you can use it to make them a little bit more secure. Most sheets are cotton these days, which washes well at high temperatures and has a smooth feel to it. The flanelette sheet is a bit different (and I was amazed you can still get them, its rather an old fashioned fabric type.)The fabric is a little thicker than cotton, and has a much softer and more snuggly feel to it. As far as I can gather, babies like snuggly things, like to be able to hold something soft and put it against their face. The sheets wash easily enough and dry only fractionally slower than cotton. They don't crease up as much, so unless you are fanatcial about that sort of thing, don't bother ironing them. They wear well, being that bit thicker. I think they are also a little more absorbant than cotton, which can help to take the inevitable leaks away from baby's skin. Mothercare do three sizes of sheet - pram/crib sized (£5.99), cot sized (£8.99) and cot bed sized (12.99) The prices are much the same as other types of sheet (They also offer Flat cotton, cotton jersey, and terry)Obviously, these sizes match Mothercare beds and cots, so it makes sense to get all of your bedding from the same place as you've got your bed, if you can. Otherwise, there are measurements online and in the catalogue to help you work out what you need. Given how big these sheets are, it is all very expensive - sheets for double beds can cost as little as 15 pounds a piece and there isn't much f
              abric in a cot bed. However, your only options are to buy these (or something of a comparable price frm another baby specialist) or to make them yourself, which is a lot of effort. I think these are really nice sheets, and my little one would appear to agree as he really loves pulling his up against his cheek so he can enjoy how snuggly and soft it feels. I would recomend them, especially for the winter. You will need at least four sheets - two on, two in the wash, but six is safer unless you have a tumble drier and can get things dry very rapidly if required.

                What an absolute waste of money these are. At £17.99 for a pair they're not what I'd call cheap either. Although cheap and nasty is what they appear to be. Last month we moved our two year old into a bed. His dad made him the bed frame and we went to Mothercare to buy a cotbed mattress. Whilst we were there we looked at the sheets and decided to buy a pack. The sheets stated on the pack that they were the correct size for the mattress we bought. However, on trying them on the mattress they barely fitted, leaving a small amount of mattress at the sides on show. They are also very thin as the pattern of the mattress shows through. After washing they seem to be even smaller (if that's possible) so I guess they have shrunk slightly - and yes I did follow the washing instructions to the letter. I'm so dissatisfied that I'm going to go into Mothercare and complain. Can anyone suggest to me where I can buy some good quality cotbed sheets?

                  I use a mothercare sheet over my son tucked in around him. He used too push his quilts off, so i compromised and put a thin cover over him, which is tucked in around him. He now sleeps soundly and no waking up cold, as it is tucked in tight enough for him to breathe easily, he cannot kick it off now. So it means a good night sleep for the both of us. At the moment that is perfect as it is hot, but i thought it would be cold in Winter, so means a blanket tucked in though, a mothercare blanket.
