Bumps to Babies: SwaddleDesigns Organic Fitted Crib Sheet Review & Giveaway

Babies spend quite a bit of their time sleeping (or is it just napping?) and it is so important that their sleeping environment be free from chemicals. One easy place that you can eliminate extra toxins from is their bedding, which comes in direct contact with their skin. It is really important to me that things like mattresses and bedding be organic. It helps put my mind at ease knowing that the cotton that makes up our little ones bedding wasn't sprayed with chemicals before being made into sheets!

I have really been looking forward to is getting our new little ones nursery ready! A nursery just wouldn't be the same without a crib and of course a crib mattress and crib sheets! Now, we already have an organic mattress and next on my list was to find some organic fitted crib sheets. I discovered SwaddleDesigns and their wonderful Organic Fitted Crib Sheets!


SwaddleDesigns is actually best known for their Ultimate Receiving Blanket. This popular blanket is quite a bit larger than the typical receiving blanket and being square in shape, it is perfect for swaddling! SwaddleDesigns has thought of everything and this is actually the only blanket with swaddling instructions sewn to its edge (patent pending). This would have been so helpful to have had with our first son! We were always forgetting how to swaddle him! 

SwaddleDesigns offer two types of fabric for swaddling: Flannel and Marquisette.
  • Flannel is the #1 Choice in US hospitals for swaddling babies, because it is thin, lightweight, breathable, but not too thick. Cotton flannel is appropriate for cooler to moderate weather.
  • They also offer a very lightweight open weave cotton Marquisette Swaddling Blanket which is appropriate for warmer climates.

The Organic Fitted Crib Sheets are made from the same buttery soft, lightweight and breathable cotton flannel as the Ultimate Receiving Blankets, and they are made right here in the USA, in Seattle,WA! I received the Organic Fitted Crib Sheet in the Pastel Blue Mod Circles on Ivory print. 

I absolutely love how cozy and soft the fitted crib sheet is! It is the perfect material for a little baby to snuggle up against! The cotton flannel is nice for the cooler fall and winter weather that we will be having, yet the material seems breathable enough for warmer spring and summer days. SwaddleDesigns also used elastic around entire bottom edge, which gives the fitted sheet a nice secure and safe fit around our crib mattress.
