And don’t forget the Toddler-Friendly Bedding…

Now you’ve bagged a cheerful toddler bed, don’t forget to give everything your little one needs to enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.

First, get some fitted cotton sheets to add on top of the mattress. Fitted blankets mean your toddler won’t be able to easily kick off their sheets in the night or get caught up in tangled bedding. And that means you won’t need to continuously re-make their sheets each morning!

The fitted sheets by Panda London (bottom left) are absorbent – as they sap up moisture, they’re ideal for helping kids enjoy a dry and comfortable night’s sleep.

Then, pick a pillow that offers your toddler both comfort and support. The kids’ memory foam pillow by Panda London (below right) provides the ideal amount of support for their neck and shoulders, so they stay comfy all night long.

And last but not least, don’t forget the mattress protector. Not only will this protect the mattress from any accidents during the potty training phase, but it will protect your little one from pesky dust mites and bacteria.
