    What are you going for?

    I just realised it might be easier (and cheaper) to get flat sheets - the only reason I don't like them is they come off whilst I'm sleeping, but baby won't be wriggling anywhere near as much as I do in the first few months, so makes no difference?!

    i'd still say fitted - just to make it easier/quicker when changing bedding....which I used to have to do all through the night with my dd as she had reflux! I had flat sheets in the cupboard but have never used them and she's 3 now :)

    Oh I did read a good tip last time...use pillow cases for Moses basket. I did this when I ran out of fitted sheets on those particularly bad puking days. It worked really well.

    I'd happily pay an extra few quid for the convenience of fitted.

    Also you'll be surprised how much they do wriggle about, even when teeny

    Im not overly bothered and the mattress is nice and snug in the crib so ill just double up the sheet and tuck it in.

    Not sure how long hell be in crib for. Might be in his cotbed within a few months and then ill go with fitted x

    Okie doke, fitted it is then!! My mum mentioned the pillow case trick, said if its a particularly rough night you could even just flip the mattress then without changing it!!

    I say fitted. With my first, I put one on the top and bottom on the mattress. If she woke up wet, I pulled sheet off the top side, flipped the mattress, and the new sheet was there, ready to go!

    Fitted :) Though I have one or two flat sheets for those warm nights when baby doesnt need a blanket or sleeping bag (AJ also loves being snuggled in a sheet when he's poorly) x
