After finding the perfect mattress for your newborn, you probably invested in a couple of sheets. Little did you know that babies go through crib sheets the way they go through baby wipes—and there's only so much laundry a parent can do. But stocking up on this newborn checklist item doesn't have to be a chore. And adding floral crib sheets is a perfect opportunity to update the decor of your little one's nursery with some color and whimsy.
Bedding for babies and kids often comes in solid pastels or cute animal prints, but we love the idea of floral crib sheets. Whether the print is small and Liberty-inspired or big, bold and tropical, florals—like the botanicals themselves—can breathe new life into your baby's room. And if you're wondering how many crib sheets you need, a bunch. Stock up.
When shopping for crib sheets, you want to look for fabrics that wash well, because they'll be in the washing machine a lot. There are a few options available. Cotton and cotton blends are soft and gentle on baby's skin and can be washed again and again. Cotton muslin is even softer—and only gets softer with use—but can be delicate.
Jersey blends are stretchy and feel like your favorite t-shirt. Often made with polyester, jersey can be durable but the spandex that makes it stretchy can degrade in high heat, so be sure to line dry or keep the dryer at a low temperature. Remember to wash your new flowery sheets before putting them on baby's bed!
These stretchy crib sheets come in packs of two for the same price most brands charge for one sheet, so they're super affordable. Choose from plenty of whimsical prints on these sheet sets, including cute animal motifs and some downright gorgeous flowery looks. The soft pastel hues make for some nifty Easter gifts for kids, too.
This retro floral print features soothing colors perfect for relaxing naps and (hopefully) long nights of sleep. Made of a polyester spandex blend, this jersey fabric is stretchy so the sheet should be easy to put on and take off. It's easy to wash with any of the best laundry detergents for kids and photographs exceptionally well against light backgrounds.
From the makers of your favorite lip balm and baby skincare products come these sweet floral sheets. Made with 100 percent organic cotton, this sheet is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (or GOTS). Plus, the brand carries blankets, PJs and towels in similar prints and color schemes so you can coordinate your baby's accessories.
"I purchased four of these floral crib sheets in different patterns," shares a happy Amazon reviewer. "I love the softness and the warmth it provides during the cold weather. I'm sure they'll work even for the hot summery days. I loved how fitted it goes around the crib. I'll definitely buy more."
Another two-pack crib sheet option, these are the most affordable of the bunch. And if you prefer natural fibers, you're in luck. These are 100% cotton. The floral pattern is fun and kid-friendly and the palette features enough shades of pink that it will likely match any other rosy-hued decor in your nursery.
"Looks exactly like the picture and perfectly fits my daughter's Halo Bassinest," shares one happy customer. "These are soft sheets and seem like great quality. Great value for the price!"
How sweet are these floral crib sheets? The daisy-printed two-pack means that you get two super soft 100% cotton muslin sheets for one low price. Muslin blankets are usually pretty expensive and are often only swaddle-sized. Having your little one sleep on muslin sheets seems like pure baby luxury.
We love how gender-neutral and uplifting this set is. "So soft, the colors a beautiful," writes one five-star reviewer. "They stretch and fit the toddler bed perfectly!"
This tone-on-tone fitted floral crib sheet from Jessica Alba's HonestBaby line is a graphic take on florals. The 100 percent cotton, GOTS-certified sheet not only looks good but it's made from fabric you can feel good about. Even better? You can buy the matching quilt, PJs and onesies.
"These floral sheets have been through the ringer with our infant twins," shares one enthusiastic Amazon reviewer and mom to new twins. "They have held up so well and stay soft and stretchy. Very well made and twin-tested."
