Good Questions: Bedding for Co-sleeper?

Ann has a question for all of you who have used the Arm's Reach Co-sleeper.

Hi, I'm planning on using a co-sleeper for the first 6 months- probably the mini co-sleeper from Arm's Reach. Even though the baby will be sharing our room, I really want to decorate the space a little bit. I really wanted a special sheet for the co-sleeper- something pretty.

It seems like Arm's Reach only makes solid sheets. I really want to find something a little bit more colorful with a pattern. Do any of the crib bedding designers make their bedding to fit the co-sleeper?

Well, we did quite a bit of research and it doesn't seem like any bedding companies make sheets for the Arm's Reach other than Arm's Reach themselves. We can't speak from experience, but it seems many reviewers recommend using standard pack and play sheets. There's a large selection of those here . But remember that the sheet must fit snugly to be safe.

Maybe the best thing to do is use the sheet that comes with the co-sleeper as a pattern and make your own with whatever fabric you like. If you're not up for the task, you may want to search under crib sheets on Etsy and find someone who does custom sheets.

Or- you could always go with white and use color in the rest of the room- on the wall or changing table?

Anyone have experience with the co-sleeper sheets?
