Better Fibres For Your Baby

There’s an abundance of choices when it comes to baby bedding, clothes and towels. It can be hard to know what to choose — which is why we’ve explored what elements need to be considered. Here at Sheridan, we want to help you help keep your baby safe and comfortable.







Whether swaddling your baby in a wrap, or dressing their cot, choose lightweight, breathable materials like cotton, muslin, linen and TENCEL™ Lyocell fibres. They’re also gentle against their skin.





Help keep your baby comfortable, regardless of season with our wide range of baby and nursery bedding. In warmer months, we suggest breathable sheets and wraps crafted from lightweight fibres like cotton muslin and linen. In cooler months, you can add a blanket for extra warmth – look for woven cotton blankets.






We only want the best for our little ones — that includes their comfort. Combining knowledge with quality materials, look for fabrics like organic cotton (GOTS certified) and Belgian flax linen, both known for their softness.





Babies aren’t exactly known for their tidy ways. When selecting baby bedding and clothing, it’s best to look for materials that are durable and easy to care for — things that can be quickly thrown in the washing machine after a spill or accident, like cotton. There’s comfort that knowing that your little one’s bedding and towels will maintain their softness and quality after every wash.




A safe cot is the best place for your baby to sleep. Red Nose Chief Midwife, Jane Wiggill, provides her advice for making up a safe and comfortable cot.

"The most important thing to remember when selecting fabric types for bedding, is that you choose blankets and sheets that are breathable. The bed linen needs to be able to be tucked in firmly without raising the base of the mattress due to the bulk of the bedding underneath."



  • Ensure your cot or portable cot meets Australian safety standard AS/NZS 2172:2003 or AS/NZS 2195:1999, respectively
  • The mattress must be firm, flat and well fitted without the addition of extra padding, loose bedding, pillows, bumpers or soft toys.
  • Always place your baby on their back with their feet to the foot of the cot.
  • Bring the bed linen to the level of their chest, tucking firmly underneath to ensure they remain safe and with their head and face uncovered at all times.
