If you have little ones, you can truly appreciate the importance of a good night’s sleep. So as the sun slips away and the cool weather creeps on in, you’ll want to make sure you have all the kids’ winter bedding essentials on hand. Because the last thing we want is to disrupt their sleep! To make it a little easier, this guide will help you determine the products you need to make their bed a warm and snuggly space, whether it’s with kids' flannelette sheets or a new winter quilt.

Step 1: Start with base layers 

Winter bedding is all about the layers. The more the better! After the mattress protector comes a soft mattress topper. We love Australian wool as the fleecy pile provides cushioned support, extra warmth and helps regulate body temperature for a sound sleep.

Step 2: Kids’ flannelette sheets

Our kids’ cotton flannelette sheets are soft, cosy and breathable – and will ensure your little one is warm all night. They’re sure to love the feel but they’ll be most excited about the fun prints. Choose from dinosaurs, pretty flowers and go-to plains in a rainbow of colours.

Step 3: Opt for a warm wool quilt

You change your bedding when the cooler months approach, so naturally you should change theirs too. Our Minijumbuk and Downtime Wool Rich Quilts have been designed specifically for little ones, providing plenty of warmth in the cooler months while regulating the body’s temperature. They’re also easy to keep clean ─ just pop them in the washing machine on a wool/delicate cycle.

Step 4: Add bedlinen they’ll love

Next, opt for warmer fabrics like velvet, flannelette or corduroy. These materials will help hold in the heat plus the texture adds warmth visually. From dinosaurs to bunnies and sweet cherries, choose a design they’ll love to make bedtime exciting.

Step 5: Layer up! Add a throw for extra warmth

Kids’ throws and blankets are perfect as an extra layer on their bed. From knitted styles to plush faux fur, they’re also great for keeping cosy on family movie nights or in the pram for crisp morning walks. For the best and cosiest seat in the house, try our faux fur floor cushions.

Step 6: The finishing touches

Last, but definitely not least, don’t forget the finishing touches to make their space somewhere they really love. It might be a matching cushion, a calming night light, an ultra-soft bath robe or a cosy floor rug. Sweet dreams!
