The nights are no longer drawing in – we’re past that now. It’s winter proper, complete with darkness in mid-afternoon and the kind of cold that bites any exposed skin and makes us want to take to our beds.
Christmas in Britain makes us think not only of mulled wine and mince pies, but also of hibernating. If you have kids you will doubtless have agonised about their bedding. Is it warm enough in there? Too warm? What is the bedding made from anyway? Why should things be as cottony as possible (answer because man made materials inspire sweat and sweat inspires a bad night’s sleep)?
Here, we have rounded up some of the cosiest bedding for kids:
Swan Lake Gro to Bed
This is not a normal duvet cover. The Gro To Bed is in fact a work of genius and a lifesaver for any parents, like me, who are freaking out about the dreaded transfer of toddler into “big kid bed” complete with a proper single duvet.
It comes as part of a set – a bottom sheet with an integrated pillow case. The duvet cover then zips onto the bottom sheet on both sides so that it is held in place all night no matter how much attempted wriggling. It will also prevent things going bump in the night – there is no chance of falling out of bed.
Made from 100 per cent woven cotton, it’s breathable so you don’t have to worry about night sweats and the whole lot is machine washable. Available in a variety of patterns but this swan lake design stood out as particularly adorable.

Frugi Sleepy Single
Made from 100 percent Organic Cotton touching this single bedding is to feel tangible luxury. It’s so soft, which is perfect for promoting sleep in little ones.
Each side of the cover – and of the included pillow case – has a different pattern, puffins and multi-coloured stars but both offer the trademark bright colour palette of the brand.
We love the little details Frugi always offer – in this case colourful button fastenings as well as an organic cotton drawstring presentation bag, which, by the way is ideal for storage.

Mini Rodini Rabbit Bed Set
Oh, the designs are just awesome – a distinctive mix of cool and playful. The colourways take some beating but best of all we love the ethos of Mini Rodini, with its commitment to sustainability and Fairtrade practices.
This mustard-yellow toddler-sized duvet cover has a continuous rabbit print pattern drawn in the unmistakable hand of illustrator and Mini Rodini founder Cassandra Rhodin. We love the little bag of the same pattern that this set comes in, too.

DJUNGELSKOG Quilt cover and pillowcase
This single duvet cover set boasts such a fun uplifting design. But there’s a lot more going on here than just pleasing design. It is made from Made from cotton and lyocell – both soft and natural materials that contain absolutely no phthalates or chemicals that could compromise a child’s health.
But it is also nice and soft as well as being tightly woven (this means it will withstand plenty of turns in the washing machine. The lyocell is also brilliant for temperature regulation thanks to its ability to absorb moisture from the skin. There’s a zipper fastener without a tab on it for extra safety.
We think that’s quite a lot of positives for sub £20.

Wild Cotton Organic Bedding Set
This set for cot beds is made from 100 percent certified organic wild cotton jersey which is soft, eco-friendly and built to last. We love the gorgeous rabbit print design – which is classic and traditional teamed with the fresh muted mint tone.
Also, FYI. The Little Green Sheep are supporting the Woodland Trust, with 25p of every item sold from the Wild Cotton range going towards protecting, restoring and creating woodland in the UK.

We love the colour – a subtle shade of grey which will work perfectly in any nursery setting. It’s definitely worth taking a look at the duvets made by Snuz too – boasting anti-allergy properties and breathable hollowfibre techonology.
