As I have mentioned before, I am amazed by all of the new baby products that continue to be introduced to make mom’s life easier. When I was pregnant with Annie last year, a friend of mine gave me the Ultimate Crib Sheet. She told me that I couldn’t live without it. And she was right. I had never heard of it before and forgot what a pain it truly is to change crib sheets. (See photos – the first one is a closeup of snaps on Ultimate Crib Sheet. The second one is of Annie’s Crib featuring the Ultimate Crib Sheet)
The Ultimate Crib Sheet is designed so that you don’t have to remove the bumper pad or mattress every time you need to wash your crib sheet. It fits a standard crib mattress by lying on top of your fitted sheet and snapping to the rails of your crib. It allows your decorative sheet to show on the sides of your crib, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for function. The Ultimate Crib Sheet is a sheet on top, padding in the middle and vinyl next to the mattress. It is comfortable and absorbent, and it can handle four cups of liquid. And best of all, you rarely, if ever, have to take your regular crib sheet off. I recommend getting two so when it comes time to wash, you can quickly unsnap and snap another one on. This product lists for $18.00, but unfortunately only comes in white.
I looked into two other options, but I don’t have any personal experience with the Sheet Saver or Clouds and Stars sheets.
The Sheet Saver costs a lot less, two for $13.99. This sheet does not have all of the features of the Ultimate Crib Sheet. It is a quilted cover that ties to crib rails. It does not have the finish of a sheet on top and is not waterproof which was the biggest complaint that I found when researching. But it can function as a quick changing pad and comes in various colors to match your current bedding.
Clouds and Stars offers Quick Zip sheets that snuggly fit your mattress, but allows you to unzip just the top panel of the sheet for washing. This product is intended to replace a crib sheet, not work with it like the Ultimate Crib Sheet and Sheet Saver. These sheets are easy to use, pretty, and the only option that is truly decorative. A Starter Set sells for $32.99 – 35.99 which includes the zipper base and zipper top. You can buy an extra zipper top, which is highly recommended for $17.50. From a look standpoint, Clouds and Stars sheets are the best of the three because you are not covering the top of your decorative sheet, and it comes in solid and gingham colors to match any décor. Clouds and Stars also offers Quick Zip Play Sheets, Twins Sheets and Mattress Pads in several sizes.
If you have any experience with any of these crib sheet options, please let us know.
I have used the ultimate crib sheet with all four of my kids. I read about them in the Baby Bargains Book 7 years ago and I have loved them ever since!! I have not used the other ones, but I don’t think you can go wrong witht the Ultimate crib sheet. Jennifer Hoyle
I used the ulimate crib sheet with my 2 boys – I loved it!
the UCS doesn’t fit all cribs.
I Loved the ultimate crib sheet until at recently at 8 months old my son learned to unsnap it and play with the sheet! Now I don’t know what to do!
The Cloud and Star sheets are terrific! I highly recommend them!!!
The Clouds and Stars sheets are absolutely terrific!! They are sooo easy to use and well worth the price. I’ve used the Ultimate Crib Sheet as well, which is nice because it lets your own decorative sheet show through, but I prefer how the Clouds and Stars sheets zip on and off.
Personally, I would not use the ultimate crib sheet b/c it is made of synthetic materials as well as cotton. I wouldn’t put my child on polyester. The Clouds and Stars comes in an organic cotton option. This is much better for your baby.
I loved the ultimate crib sheet until one day I “allowed my 6 month old to cry it out” for about 45 minutes and finally went in there and somehow she had gotten stuck under the crib sheet . It was still snapped and the poor child was on her belly, covered in sweat crying. I could have killed myself for allowing her to cry. I have no idea how she got under there and how she id not suffocate. I have never used it again.wallace
Wow, I just read the review of the UCS where the baby was stuck underneath, and that is exactly why I stopped using them…a baby safe consultant said that could happen. I switched to Clouds and Stars and am completely hooked. They are the best invention, ever. I just got them for my second child, due in September and they are worth every cent.
The Clouds and Stars sheets are ingenious and SO easy to use! I recommend buying the mattress pad as well.Sally
