This is a review for the cotton jersey fitted bed sheets by Mothercare that I brought for my son's cot.
DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCT:
These cotton jersey fitted bed sheets are sold in Mothercare and come in a pack of two.The price ranges from £7.99-£13.99 depending on the size you choose as illustrated below,
Moses basket - £7.99
Travel cot - £9.99
Crib - £9.99
The sheets come in a range of 5 colours of,white,cream,lemon,blue and pink.
They are described as being made from 100% cotton and can be washed at 40 degrees and also tumble dried.
I brought these sheets for my youngest son who is now 10 months old just after he grew out of his moses basket.These fitted cot sheets although seemed pricy to me at the time have definately given me their value back in usage.The selling point of these sheets is it's stretchy jersey cotton material which snugly fits around my son's mattress and stays perfectly in place.These sheets are very soft to touch and feel comfortable next to my baby's skin giving him a more relaxing sleeping experience.I particularly like the fact that they are so durable as after so much washing they have still not lost their shape and are still a perfect fit around the mattress.They have also not bobbled over time and neither have I noticed any significant fading in their colour.
I would recommend these sheets as they are durable,practical and easy to maintain and the good overall quality in design justifies the slightly higher price.
About the sheets;
The Mothercare jersery fitted sheets are 100% cotton, washable at 40° and can be tumble dried. They come in packs of 2, and can be bought for moses baskets, cribs, cots or cotbeds. The cost of the sheets is reflected in by the size bought, starting at £7.99 for 2.
I bought the fitted sheets for our daughter's cotbed in a lovely lemon shade. They are wonderfully soft, and fitted the cotbed mattress perfectly - nice and taught around the edges without any fabric being loose, but not stretching it which would have eventually thinned-out the fabric.
They wash well, and are easily tumble dried - each time coming out as soft as when first bought. My daughter was perfectly happy with these on her bed, causing no problems or irritations, sleeping through from 6 weeks old, which I do believe was benefited from good bedding!
Even now, three years on from first bought, the fitted sheets are in good quality, with no loose threadings or worn patches - I would recommend them to anyone who asked!
Whilst you may pay a little bit more at Mothercare than at some other retailers, in this case I do believe the price reflects on the quality of the product, and it is worth paying the extra.
I purchased Mothercare Jersey Cot Bed Sheets when I was pregnant with my son and had decided that I would be using a cot bed with him. At £13.99 for a pack of two, these were quite pricey but i didn't want to scrimp on things for my baby, especially things that I intended to be using for some time. The idea of a cot bed is that it is used as a cot and then the sides can be removed to make a bed. Therefore, I knew my baby would be using this for quite a while and I wanted sheets that would last well and stand the test of time. At the time, I didn't know if I was having a boy or girl so all the bedding was neutral and I bought two packs - one in white and one in cream.
The sheets come in a clear plastic envelope with a cardboard backing. They feel soft to the touch and quite thick and very good quality. They are 100% cotton which is ideal for a baby's delicate skin. The sheets stretch nicely over the mattress and are elasticated and fitted so very easy to remove and replace - a great time saver for bed changes.
The sheets can be washed at 40 degrees and can also be tumble dried. I have now washed these numerous times and they have washed up really well. I also occasionally tumble dry them and, again, they still look great after this. My son is now two and in a junior bed and we still use these sheets - so they have definitely lasted us well and been very good value for money. There has been a little bit of bobbling over time but this is very minimal and not too noticeable.
Overall, these are very good quality and I am glad that I opted for these rather than cheaper varieties. I would definitely recommend these.
Bedding is very important when you have a baby or toddler as you want to make sure you do everything in your power to make sure they and in turn you get a good night's sleep. I have a mattress for my son from John Lewis and find these sheets fit well with it. They are not too small and fit nice and snug to the mattress. This is a good thing as my soon is a real little wriggler at night so these have had a good strong testing by him and have managed to stay on all night.
Despite the number of washings they have had there has been no shrinkage and they still feel soft. They also don't feel as cold as they are made from a soft jersey fabric. I think this helps not to wake my son up when he has fallen asleep on me and I am trying to conduct the tricky task of moving him to his bed without waking him up. Rule No 1 Don't Wake A Sleeping Baby! So far so good but how have they managed to cope with my son's illnesses? Well they have stood up well to being treated as a tissue at night when he had a bad cold. They also did well in the tougher test of the night-time vomiting. They managed to soak up the mess well so the mattress was relatively unaffected.
The sheets are frequently washed in my washing machine's fast cycle but when there are tougher stains I put them in a hotter wash and there has been no shrinkage. Being fitted means they are very quick and easy to put back on the mattress.
The sheets come in a pack of two which is very useful and also in different colours although I only use the white sheets so this review is based on them. I would recommend them to parents or to anyone looking to buy a practical and very useful gift to parents of babies or infants. The sheets do come in different sizes so you can also use them in a moses basket. The cot size currently costs £11.99 which is reasonable in my opinion.
After buying the basic cotton sheets for the moses basket I wanted something a little nicer for our boys cotbed and opted for the Cotton Jersey Fitted sheets. These are fab and I was so happy with them price and quality wise.
The Mothercare Cotton Jersey Fitted Sheets come in a variety of sizes to suit all your nursery needs and are priced as follows for a pack of 2;-
Moses Basket £13.99
Cot Bed £7.99
We purchased the Cotbed size in cream and white but you can also get them in Lemon, Blue and Pink so these will go with any nursery design. They are a supersoft stretchy sheet that Mothercare describe as a cosy t-shirt material.They are designed to be easy care, are 100% cotton and can be washed at 40'C and tumbled dried.
The jersey sheets are very soft to the touch and make the cotbed instantly feel warm and cosy unlike a normal cotton sheet. They feel snug and touchable. As they are a cotton jersey material they also have a degree of stretch in them making them hold around the mattress well and are very easy to fit. By stretching so well there is no baggy fabric for baby to tangle themselves in.
The variety of colours and sizes is also great meaning you can coordinate these with your nursery and get plenty of use out of them. For the reasonable prices for the packs of 2 they are also wonderful quality and wash really well. They do not need ironing, dry quickly and the colours stay strong. We purchased them in cotbed size in cream and later in blue and they still look as good as new and have stayed just as stretchy and soft. I cannot honestly find any downsides to them as they are so good they make me want to get in the cot!
Well worth the money, well done Mothercare!
When my little girl was a baby we had her in a cot bed, which meant that I knew that whatever bedding I bought her would need to last when we took the sides off and it became her junior bed.
So rather than skimping on cheaper bedding, which is a false economy, I bought a pack of Mothercare Jersey Cot Bed Sheets to try out before buying any more packs. I paid £13.99 for a pack of two white coloured Jersey Cot Bed Sheets which are 100% cotton and therefore hopefully would be easy to wash and dry and be suitable for any sensitivities my baby daughter may have. I went for white, incidentally, as I bought the first pack when I was pregnant and I didn't know what I was having, so I kept it neutral.
So, the Mothercare Jersey Cot Bed Sheets come in a thick plastic envelope with a card insert and backing, and I always wash them before use, so I can guarantee her skin won't react, and because I don't like using bedding straight out the pack because it is always very creased from the folds in the packaging.
I can confirm they wash and dry very well, and when we were ready to put them on the bed they fitted her Mamas and Papas cot bed mattress very well, just taught enough, no creases of extra material, no being just that bit too short. Overall I was very happy with the fit.
My daughter slept all night on the sheets, no skin irritation, no pulling the sheets out or anything like that, and after a month of rotating the two and being satisfied they were good sheets and worth the money I bought another set (this time in pink and pale pink). When it comes to it I don't think you need to have tons of cot bed sheets, I change hers once a week and throw the sheet into the next pale wash and they'll be dry for next time. So, all in, with extras for emergency changes and so on, four is quite enough for us.
I can highly recommend the Mothercare Jersey Cot Bed Sheets, as they've been in constant use for 2 years now and are still in top condition, no bobbling, no missing or loose threads, still lovely and soft (I wash at 30 degrees with non bio and use sensitive laundry conditioner) and I will likely save them for the next addition to the family. So brilliant value for money.
A big five stars out of five from me for Mothercare Jersey Cot Bed Sheets, they are worth every penny.
As a mother of three young children, I have grown to trust Mothercare products and have found their range of baby bedding to be excellent quality, hardwearing and practical for everyday use. I use both their jersey cotton fitted sheets and their terry cotton sheets which are available in a range of sizes to suit everything from moses baskets to large cot beds, with prices varying accordingly.
As a seasoned parent, I would always recommend fitted sheets over flat sheets as they are so much quicker and easier to remove and attach securely, which is particularly important during those middle of the night emergency changes - thanks to a sickly baby or a leaky nappy! The elasticated sides on these sheets are generously proportioned and are easy to fit into place, allowing for the sheets to remain in place however active a little one might be during the night. Reassuringly, the elastic has not appeared to stretch or shrink despite considerable usage.
Both jersey and terry cotton are soft and natural fabrics but I find that the jersey cotton sheets wear very well and are less prone to bobbling or signs of aging, whereas terry cotton can look quite straggly after repeated usage. The one disadvantage of these jersey sheets is that the fabric can be quite cool to the touch initially. I learnt from experience that trying to place a warm sleeping baby straight on to the cold bedding could often disturb them from slumber! Fortunately, as soon as babies have developed the skills of self-settling this becomes less of an issue and, now that my youngest son is two years old, I tend to rely on the jersey sheets as I think they feel softer and look nicer than the cheaper terry sheets and have never caused any irritation on any of my children's delicate and sensitive skin.
I can certainly vouch for the hard wearing nature of these particular sheets as I still own a set of bedding that was originally used by my oldest son who is now ten years old. I have replaced some of the sheets over time and can't see any difference in the quality between the older and newer sheets with no visible signs of aging or deterioration. I tend to wash these on a standard 40 degree machine wash but have also used a higher 60 degree wash, if the bedding has been soiled in any way, to no ill effect. The only reason for replacing any of the bedding is thanks to my habit of mixing coloured and white fabrics and an unfortunate colour run episode!
The cost of the sheets varies according to the size of the mattress used but a pack of two plain fitted cot bed sheets currently costs £13.99. This might sound quite expensive for what is quite basic bedding but I personally think it is worthwhile paying slightly more for good quality bedding that will last and last, particularly if you are planning to use this with any subsequent children. The sheets can be purchased in store and online in various shades and designs although I would also advise purchasing neutral bedding for the same reason, with my sheets being practical shades of white and a very pale lemon shade although I do also have some in blue, having had a family of boys!
WHAT ARE THEY?
Jersey sheets from Mothercare. All of their jersey sheets are available to fit a crib, a cot and a cot bed and I have all of the different sizes but am talking about specific the ones that I use on my 9 month old daughters cot bed.
These sheets can be bought in all different colours and you can buy them with fitted corners and as flat sheets also. The ones I have got now are lemon and I bought the fitted ones because they are a lot easier. I have got some pink ones also and they are flat sheets but they are 7 years old so I do not know if you can still buy these exact ones. They are very soft even after they have been washed a lot, they are not fluffy like you would think with them being called jersey sheets but they have got the same soft feel as high quality cotton sheets.
WHAT I THINK
I like these cot bed sheets and I have bought them for all 3 of my children because they are very good and I trust Mothercare to be good for my children. The lemon colour is very attractive and this colour would be ok for boys or girls if you do not know what you are having, there is white as well if you do not want to buy blue or pink sheets for your baby.
The elastic on the corners is strong and that keeps the sheet in the correct place even if your baby moves a lot in their sleep. The elastic makes changing the sheet very easy also because they just snap into place and it does not take very much time. I like how soft and warm the sheets feel even if the room is a little bit cold and my daughter always sleeps very well so I think she must think they are comfortable.
I change my daughters sheet every 2 days so they have been washed a lot but the colour has not faded and the material has not gone thin. I think that is very good because I have got some other jersey sheets that cost more money but they have gone thread bared at the corners now even though they feel like they are made from the same material.
These sheets come in a packet of 2 and cost about £15. That is very good value I think because of how long they last and how comfortable they are for my baby daughter, the ones I bought 7 years ago for my other daughter are still in very good condition and I still use them regular so they were a very good buy and I hope my lemon ones last for that long.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Mothercare jersey baby bed sheets
In our house the smallest person has by far the most amount of beds, in anticipation of my baby's arrival and what she might need we ended up purchasing a cot for downstairs for through the daytime, a cot bed for upstairs for when she makes that move into her own room and a gliding crib for next to our bed until she's that bit older. What I didn't quite think through was that getting three different sizes of beds meant that I then also had to buy three different sets of bedding as the sizes are all different. When shopping for sheets I just wanted something that was soft to the touch and fitted, because fitted sheets are just by far the easier and less time consuming option.
I always end up changing my baby's bedding far more than I do my own, but then I'm not nearly as messy and she can on occasion dirty her sheets as fast as I can change them. And so far despite being washed and worn for a few months the Mothercare jersey sheets have still retained their shape and colour and have not shown all that much sign of bobbling. Overall, I would have to say that I have been really pleased with Mothercare's jersey bed sheets.
If I am honest, the colour selection of the sheets available from Mothercare is a little disappointing. I own the sheets in the pink and cream shades and with each packet you get two sheets in slightly different tones of the core colour and you can't mix and match. The pink sheets are a nice baby pink colour with one being slightly lighter than the other but the cream sheets have one nice cream colour and a second that looks ever so slightly browny - it's not my favourite but it is a nice neutral colour if you are fed up of lemon if you are avoiding buying anything pink or blue.
The Mothercare jersey cotton fitted sheets can be purchased from most of their stores and from their online website.
If you are interested in the fitted jersey sheets you can pick from a colour selection of: white, lemon, cream, blue or pink.
And sizes for a: cot, crib, cot bed and Moses basket
The prices of the sheets range from £13.99 to £7.99 depending upon the size of sheet you require. In my opinion for the size of the actual sheets I do think that they are a little over priced, especially considering I could easily buy a king sized sheet for the same price if not cheaper. However, they are a good quality and they are lovely and soft and exactly what you would expect from sheets that are 100% cotton.
Just as a little side note, on the sheet the information tag does tell you the sheet size, which means that I don't have to try a trial and error approach about figuring out what size sheet goes on what bed. Which, comes in especially handy if like me you have multiple sheets all in the same colour but just in different sizes that isn't always immediately noticeable on sight.
Personally, I like these sheets and I would recommend them. Even despite not shopping around before I purchased the jersey fitted cotton sheets I have been more than happy with mine, even despite longing for a brighter selection of colours. I will most likely be buying more of these in the future, especially if they are on special promotion.
Therefore, from me the Mothercare jersey baby bed sheets get a four out of five stars rating.
My experience on these Mothercare Jersey Cotton cot bed sheets has been a good one.
I bought these for my grandson who lived with us at the time, and bought them for a cotbed. There are 2 sheets in each pack and come in various sizes,they are soft and stretchy, with a nice feeling to them and gentle enough for baby's skin and they can be bought for cot, crib, moses basket and cotbed. They cost was £13.99 in Mothercare. For the other sizes £11.99 (cot) £9.99 (crib) £7.99 (moses basket). The colours they do them in are white, cream, pink, blue and lemon.
They are made of 100% cotton fabric and are machine washable at 40degrees and may be tumble dried and easy to iron. Which I dont think you need to do if tumble drying.
As our baby suffers with eczema, these sheets need washing constantly and withstand some serious washes, which is a good thing as they wear well.
I also found that the sheets also fitted a travel cot nicely too, which comes in very handy.
We liked the plain sheets ourselves, but there are also another pattern, called "Little Circus" that Mothercare also sell,which is a bit colourful for cot and cotbed.
Excellent buy and happy grandson.
We purchased these sheets in neutral cream when we were expecting our son. We had decorated the room in creams and browns since we had not found out his sex and these fitted in perfectly with this scheme.
These sheets come in a pack of two and are fitted sheets (they have a rim of elastic running round the outside to perfectly fit to the mattress and not move) They come in a range of colours (Cream, white, Yellow, Blue and Pink) and are available in several size from crib sized to cot bed. The set comes in two different shades, a lighter sheet and a slightly darker colour (as far as I can tell, at least the cream and the blue set I bought for the crib do) They are made of soft cotton jersey fabric and according to the mothercare website are made of "easy care material making them stress- free to wash and iron" This size (the cotbed) retail at £13.99 but the smaller sizes are obviously cheaper. We purchased these in a buy one get one free deal and used the voucher in the mothercare baby and me pack (worth signing up to if buying this type of thing)
These sheets are lovely and soft to the touch. They are perfect for a babies soft skin and there are no complaints from my son! They fit perfectly on the cotbed and give a really tight fit which means my son can toss and turn all night and they stay put.
They wash really well and retain their colour brilliantly, they are still as good as when I bought them even though I have washed them pretty constantly since I got them around 3 months ago. They are quite stain resistant, there is always a bit of sick (or worse) on them in the morning and a quick wash even at 40 degress and the stains have gone. The claims that they are easy iron are also true, they iron really quickly and easily but I have found if you hang them well while drying they don't even need ironing.
I love the fact they come in two shades as it means I can make a subtle change up in the colour scheme but still stay matching. The two pack also means I can have one on the cotbed while the other is being washed which is a godsend with a refluxy baby!
I would have loved a greater range of shades and maybe some brighter colours but I suppose the same can be said of most baby bedding ranges and the choice of colours is typical of most manufacturers.
I would say these sheets are quite expensive at full price but they do last well. If you are getting a deal as well, they are definitely worth it and you do get your moneys worth. I would definitely recommend these sheets to anyone.
When we had our first daugher we bought a bedding bale from Mothercare, in it we got a fleece a blanket and a couple of flat sheets however i really prefer fitted sheets and so decided to buy a couple of fitted sheets as well besides anything else i wanted the flat sheets for layering over our baby so I could happily add or remove layers without disturbing her.
Since we had bought the bedding bale from Mothercare I decided to get the fitted sheets from there too so that all the bedding would match, it is now 5 years since we bought the sheets so I am not sure how much they cost at the time however the prices now range from £7.99 to £13.99 which is for a pack of two fitted sheets. The sheets are available in cream, lemon, pink, blue and white and you can get them in 3 different sizes, moses basket, cot or cotbed. Our sheets are for a cot bed and so they fitted mattresses 140 x 70cms.
The sheets were in a plastic pack which was sealed at the end but was also resealable so you were able to sneakily open and have a feel of them before purchase of course I know you shouldn't but I wanted to see how soft they were and so I did. The sheets arte lovely and soft and I was and still am confident they are comfortable for my children, the sheets are jersey material so they feel like a legging type material.
The sheets are fitted so they of course have elastic running through them so that they will stay put on the mattress, they are harder to fitt without one corner popping off when you first get them but now five years later using them for my second daughter the sheets go on the mattress easily but they still have enough life in the elastic that they stay in place once they are on. The sheets wash really well and haven't bobbled which I think for the amount we have used them is really brillaint, my eldest was in the cotbed until she was 2 1/2 and my second daughter has been in it for 18 months so these sheets are certainly durable.
I would recommend the whole of the Mothercare bedding range as I can't fault it, the sheets are soft and my daughters have always slept well so they must be comfortable, the sheets have not stained at all even when using the likes of Olbas oil and when covered in sick or snot. These sheets would probably even do for a third child not that I am planning one, highly recommended.
After months of trawling the shops looking for cot bed sheets I had no luck. So had to resort to mothercare as this was the only place I could find any. I was looking for some bright colourful sheets with a design or even a bit of pattern. But ended up having to buy plain pastel colour ones.(They come in yellow, pink, blue,cream and brown).
They where on 2 for 1 offer which is a bonus but there are two in each pack which is more than I needed, but I wanted two colours to swap and change. So I bought Yellow and Pink 2 packs for £17.99. I still have two unused sheets sitting in the cupboard.
I got home and got the cot bed ready for the arrival of my Tiny :)
The sheets did not fit my cot that I assume is of average size. The sheets were to wide and not long enough.
So there is always a small gap at the top with the matteress showing. At first I was worried that my baby would somehow get the sheet over her head but luckily she never has.
Then it came to the first wash. I put them in the machine with Fairy non-bio Gel, air dried them and ironed them with love.
I put the pink one back on the bed and thought it looked different. So I compared it to the one never washed and it had faded to an even paler shade of pastel pink :(
I have to say that everytime it has washed again it has'nt faded anymore and the yellow has never faded at all, but I would have expected more from the Mothercare brand.
Overall apart from the colour fading they have been used for a year and a half and caused me no more problems. They have not worn out or stained and still feel as soft and cosy as the day they were opened.
It's easy to become overwelmed by the range of items on the market for babies so willpower of steal is needed to avoid over spending.
We purchased a cot bed and crib and decided to go for a unisex theme so went for a jungle theme with sheets in pale yellow (or cream as others would put it).
What can we say-the sizing is perfect, the colour hasn't faded even with the repeated washing and I rarely iron the sheets. After they come out of the machine (I use quick wash option) I give them a 'shake' to get some of the creases out and try and hang them on the line to dry. I can see why some would prefer to iron them though. Another way to save ironing time is to iron your top sheets on top of these jersey sheets-it usually gets 60% of the creases out. We use a non-biological powder and fabric conditioner to look after babies bedding.
These sheets in my opinion are great quality, they still look new after 5 months of wear and tear (my little one has reflux so sickness is a daily occurance).
We got these on a buy one set and get another half price deal which was great.
If you join the Mothercare Mother and Baby club you get money off vouchers which sometimes contain money off bedding so if you plan to shop at Mothercare sign up.
Easy to look after, reasonably priced too and great fit.
Only con is the limited range of colours but that is the case in most stores selling baby bedding.
Now even though my daughter is only in her moses basket I have already purchased her cotbed sheets as well as her moses basket sheets. I wanted sheets which were well made and would wash well as no doubt they would be going into the washing machine several times a week! Like so many baby products every baby company does their own baby sheet at varying prices. Even though my moses basket came with two sheets I wanted to get some spares. After looking around as places such as Babies R Us and Kiddicare I ended up purchasing both cotbed and moses basket sheets as they were recommended to me by a friend.
Again like most places Mothercare had a few different types of sheet but I opted for the jersey sheets as they are made out of cotton and are incredibly soft and stretchy which is what is needed in a cot or basket. I ended up purchasing white moses basket sheets and pink and white cotbed sheets as they have a buy one get one half price offer which helps save the pennies!
As soon as I got my sheets out of their packaging I found how soft they were and there is a good amount of elastic around the sheets and especially for the moses basket the sheet fits skin tight over the little foam type mattress which is nice as the jersey fabric even though incredibly soft it doesn't bunch up underneath my daughter which although won't cause any discomfort to her I just like my sheets to fit snug and tight.
Washing the jersey sheets is very simple! Mine go on a 30 degree wash and come out lovely and soft. I haven't seen any shrinkage which I sometimes find when I was new bed linen but these seem to stay the same size. What I have noticed is that because I tumble dry all of my daughters clothes and sheets that these never need any ironing (for those that iron sheets) and come out wrinkle free. Even though Mothercare advise that these are iron free you never know whether they are quite telling the truth but these sheets certainly don't need ironing unless of course you line dry. The fabric doesn't get bobbly bits either which is nice. Another thing is that the pink sheets stay just as pink as when I first bought them.
The only downside to these sheets is for my cotbed. Even though I have a standard size cotbed I find that the Mothercare Jersey Cotbed sheets just about fit my mattress and only just! They are definitely a very snug fit and very tight and hardly reach under the mattress when tucking it all in. Not so much of an issue now but when my daughter finally goes into her cotbed and the sheets are washed even more I do wonder whether they will gradually get smaller!
Mothercare do the jersey sheets in blue, cream, white, pink and lemon. The blue, pink and yellow shades come in packs of two different shades of the same colour. E.g. the pink has one darker pink (rose colour) and a lighter pale pink. The sheets come in the following sizes:-
* Moses basket: 28 x 73cm
* Crib: 38 x 89cm
* Cot: 56 x 118cm
* Cot bed: 70 x 140cm
The sheets cost from £9.99 to £16.99 depending on what size you buy. For me these sheets are good value for money especially for the moses basket sheets as they fit the little mattress really well. However, for the cotbed they are just too tight and a little small for my liking and therefore I don't think I would purchase them again. But as for the sheets for my moses basket they wash well, don't lose their shape or shrink and fit just right so I can't complain. I would certainly recommend them but I would advise you double check the size of your cotbed mattress should you want to buy sheets for your cotbed as the sheets seem to come up a tad small.
