Are these Crib Sheets or Toddler Bed Sheets?
Toddler Bed Sheets for Boys & Girls
When I first started selling ZipSheets, I was concerned parents would think our zipper crib sheets were to be used by babies and infants which isn’t true. To me, the words “crib sheet” can be a little misleading. Our crib sheets should really be referred to as toddler bed sheets. They are intended to be used by toddlers and young children ages 1-5. They are not to be used by infants and babies under the age of 1 year. Your child must be strong enough to lift their head and roll easily before you should ever consider these zip sheets.
Crib Safety Recommendations
For safety reasons, it is not recommended to have any bumpers, top sheet, pillow, blanket, or stuffed animal in bed with an infant or baby under 12 months of age. These could pose a risk of smothering, strangulation or entrapment and even death. It is best to use a snug fitted sheet only on a firm mattress which shows no indentation when the infant is lying on it and no other soft objects in the crib. Additional warmth can be provided in sleep clothing or sleep sacks.
ZipSheets named for the mattress size, not the intended use
So the size of the sheet is named for the size mattress it fits – in this case a crib size mattress or a toddler bed mattress. Children often remain in a crib beyond 1 year and that same mattress may be converted to a toddler bed and used for up to 5 years. So, when your child is in the age range of 1-5, they may still be using the crib size mattress but they are finally ready for that top sheet, a blanket, and a pillow. At that point, our Crib Size Kids ZipSheets make the perfect toddler bedding.
What comes with crib size toddler bed ZipSheets?
All standard crib size Kids ZipSheets come with a fitted sheet, an attached custom made flat sheet, and one junior pillow case. The top sheet has 3 different length settings and can be adjusted using the snap fasteners which are firmly attached to the sheets. Your child will stay tucked in, stay in bed, and feel secure for that transition from the crib to a toddler bed. These are all very important considerations when looking for toddler bedding.
So, it’s up to you
We can’t stress enough the importance of using this product responsibly. It can pose a suffocation hazard if not used for the appropriate age child. It is NOT intended for use with children under the age of 1 and the responsibility for ensuring proper use once it’s purchased falls solely on the parent or guardian. It is an amazing product and perfect for your 1-5 year old children. After that, our regular line of ZipSheets can be used by folks from ages 5-100. Please use this product as intended and we know you will love Kids ZipSheets!
