    Default Baby Cot Bedding

    Hi All!
    Am stressing about what I need to put in the cot and what baby will sleep in. Can anyone help? Useless first time mum here!

    The baby will going straight into the cot.

    We have 3 fitted sheet sets - is this enough?
    2 mattress protectors.
    We got HEAPS of blankets for our baby shower.
    I also got heaps of Wraps & a zip up swaddle.

    Am a bit confused about what to have them wrapped in for bed! Blanket over the swaddle or wrap?

    Sorry if this a silly and obvious post but I seriously have no idea!

    Thanks!

    My plan is to use the sleeping bags. I just got a bunch of them on sale from bambini pronto online. I was planning on baby in sleeping bag on top of fitted sheet (and mattress protector) but no other blankets or sheets.
    Though we might use a swaddle or wrap when in the bassinet at first.

    We swaddled the boys on top of fitted sheets then added blankets on top of swaddles when it got cooler. Now we are in bags with blanket on top

    Thanks Ladies.
    I guess we'll work out what works best & then go from there!
    Can always buy more stuff once the baby is here!

    We're having a winter bub and my plan was to just wrap/swaddle in a light blanket, then tuck him under a sheet and if its still too cold, another light blanket on top. I figure its better for him to get cold and wake up than to overheat.

    3 sets of sheets is generally enough cos you can have one on, one in the wash and one as a back up. Of course you can always get more for those nights where they have poo or vomit explosions, but 3 is the ideal 'starting' number really.
