As a new parent, you want to make sure your baby has the best start in life, considering every aspect of their comfort and safety. Even something that can seem as small as their bedding materials can impact their sleep quality and the environment in which they sleep. We're here to tell you why it's so important to choose organic Moses basket bedding sets over regular bedding.
Perhaps it's something that's crossed your mind in the lead-up to your baby's arrival, or maybe you've never considered before that some baby bedding sets for Moses baskets are better for your baby than others.
Well, it's never too late to educate yourself on exactly the reasons why it's so important to choose organic over regular materials, and that's what we're here for! At The Little Green Sheep, we take pride in crafting beautiful organic Moses Basket baby bedding, and there's meaning behind why we do what we do.
If you want to give your newborn the best start in life, then it's incredibly important to choose organic materials for their bedding. Here are all the reasons why.
At the very top of our list is safety. Organic materials are known for being safer for your baby's sleep, with no added chemicals or synthetic materials that might cause any harm to your baby's health. Instead, the materials are all-natural and organic, meaning your baby gets the purest and healthiest sleep environment possible.
The organic cotton and linen we use in all of our Moses basket sheets are grown without pesticides or any other dangerous chemicals, meaning your baby is surrounded by only the most natural materials. This is unlike cheaper bedding sets, which can often be made from polyester and other synthetic materials, which could put your baby's health at risk if made poorly.
Not only that, but organic Moses basket betting is incredibly easy to wash, too, so you can always keep their sleep space free from germs, bacteria and other nasties. Simply pop them into the washing machine, tumble-dry, and hey presto – your bedding set is as good as new (even with that soft feeling you get when they're first out of the packet!)
Sticking with the theme of baby safety, organic bedding is also known for its hypoallergenic properties, so you don't have to be worried about triggering any unknown allergies or sensitivities your baby might have.
Babies can be incredibly sensitive to certain materials, which is why organic bedding is such a great choice. The natural fibres used are smooth and non-irritating, meaning your baby won't be exposed to things like dust mites or other allergens. This can sometimes be a risk with cheaper bedding sets, as these can be made with synthetic materials which offer no hypoallergenic properties.
A Moses basket bedding set with hypoallergenic properties is also much less likely to trap any pollen or other allergens into your baby's sleep space, providing a much healthier overall environment for them.
The benefits don't just stop there! Organic materials are famously gentle on babies' skin, and what better way to make sure your baby has a comfortable sleep than with organic bedding?
Everyone knows babies have delicate skin, so taking measures to make sure they're surrounded by only natural materials is incredibly important. When you're comparing this to regular bedding sets made with synthetic fabrics, it's clear why organic materials are the better choice! You don't get the same softness and gentleness that comes with organic materials; for your baby, this can make all the difference to their overall comfort and sleep quality.
Your baby will be spending an awful lot of their first weeks of life in their Moses basket, so making sure they're surrounded by only the best materials is so important.
And finally, a major reason why parents should be choosing organic Moses basket bedding sets is that they help create an even softer and cosier sleep environment for your baby.
Organic materials are renowned for being extra soft and gentle, as we've already mentioned plenty. But what makes these materials even better for your baby's sleep is that they're also temperature-regulating, meaning your baby is less likely to become too hot or cold in their Moses basket.
This is especially important considering how incredibly vulnerable newborns can be to temperature changes, as they don't have the ability to regulate their body temperature in the same way as adults. Organic bedding will help to keep them feeling snuggly and warm, so there's no need to worry about them becoming too hot or cold while they sleep.
So now that we've convinced you of exactly the reasons why you should choose organic Moses basket bedding sets over regular bedding, let's talk about what you actually need to set up a Moses basket ready for when you bring your baby home.
We've included the very most essential items you need below.
Of course, you'll need to give your baby a soft, firm surface to lay their head. Not only that, but a mattress protector will help to keep your baby's sleep space hygienic and free from germs, as well as protect the mattress from inevitable nighttime accidents.
Again, look for a mattress and protector made from natural materials to guarantee your baby's safety and comfort while they sleep.
Just with any bed – baby or parent – you'll need fitted sheets for the Moses basket. These fit nicely over the top of their mattress and mattress protector to provide a layer of comfort and warmth, as well as a little extra protection against any accidents.
Choose stylish and soft organic sheets for your baby, perfect for keeping them comfortable throughout the night.
A Moses basket liner provides a barrier between your baby and the hard walls of their Moses basket, as well as helps to keep your baby warm when they sleep. You can choose cute patterns, colours and textures to match the fitted sheets, creating a cohesive, cosy environment for your baby.
Whilst you might be tempted to bundle up your baby in a snuggly blanket, we strongly advise against doing this whilst your baby is asleep unattended in their bassinet. Loose blankets and other items can pose a suffocation risk, so instead, opt for a baby sleeping bag specially designed to keep your newborn warm and safe throughout the night.

We always strongly recommend to parents to choose organic baby bedding over regular materials. Organic bedding made with fabrics like cotton and linen is so much better for your baby in terms of their health, their safety, their sleep quality and their comfort.
Whether you're after crib bedding or Moses basket bedding and everything in between, we always advise parents to choose organic bedding whenever possible. Not only is organic bedding softer and gentler on babies' skin, but it's also hypoallergenic and free from any dangerous chemicals or synthetic materials.
When it comes to Moses basket bedding, you'll need the essentials – a mattress and mattress protector, fitted sheets, a Moses basket liner and a baby sleeping bag.
Most definitely! You should be washing your baby's Moses basket bedding once a week at the very least, as this will help to keep your baby's sleep space free from any germs, bacteria and other nasties. Obviously, you'll want to wash them more frequently when necessary, such as after any accidents.
