A safe sleep environment can feel like a bare sleep environment. Bumpers, blankets, pillows and quilts are off-limits in baby’s crib. That leaves just the crib sheet, which should be tightly fitted to avoid loose fabric. And with only one safe decor element to work with, it’s no wonder parents and parents-to-be make a point of finding the cutest sheets around. If you’re torn between making a design statement and making sure baby is comfortable, we have you covered. These are the best crib sheets when it comes to style, softness and baby-friendly materials.

Burt's Bees Baby Organic Cotton Fitted Crib Sheet

The thick, soft cotton won’t lose quality or feel no matter how many times you wash it (which will probably be a lot). And the hypoallergenic, organic cotton promises not to irritate even the most sensitive baby skin. For those reasons, it won The Bump Best of Baby award in 2018, recognizing them as the best crib sheets of the year.
