I never bothered with fancy cot sheets, a bumper or skirt for Michaela's cot as a baby. The only thing I concerned myself with was a mattress protector for those little accidents and a good grobag as soon as she was too big to be swaddled. But now that I'm discovering lots of great blogs and nursery resources, I MUST have a pretty set ready for Bubba 2. As mentioned before though, I'm on a tight budget and sheet/ cot sets cost a packet!! I fell in love with these sets from The Hip Infant the other day.
