Baby bed sizes
Choosing linen for your baby's bed can be confusing due to the number of different-sized baby beds available! Here's our quick guide to sizes and tips for helping you find linen on our website.
Bassinets, Hammocks & Co-Sleepers etc
Bassinets are available in a range of sizes. The most common is the 76 x 40cm size, which is used by a number of brands including Cariboo.
Please check your mattress size before ordering to ensure it will fit the linen you order.
All our bassinet linen at The Sleep Store will fit a Cariboo or other 76 x 40cm bassinet.
We have a range of bassinet mattresses in stock.
We sell the Natures Sway hammocks, which have a mattress size of 87 x 34cm.
You can use most FLAT bassinet sheets in a hammock or the specific Natures Sway brand of sheets.
Regular fitted bassinet sheets are too short, as they are generally designed for 76 or 80cm long mattresses.
If you have a different hammock, please check the mattress size and check with us for suitable linen.
These come in a range of sizes, generally either 71 x 36cm or the ecoBub measures 74 x 33cm. Please check on individual mattress size on your moses basket.
You can use any bassinet sheets although most bassinet are square ended rather than the oval shape of a moses basket mattress.
Babu oval bassinet sheets are another good option.
The Stokke Mini is an oval shaped bassinet, part of the Stokke cot package. We recommend the Babu Oval bassinet sheets for this bassinet.
Cradles are more common in Australia than New Zealand, and are basically a large bassinet. These come in a range of different sizes, so please check your specific mattress size before ordering linen.
We recommend the Living Textiles range of specific cradle linen, which is suitable for cradle mattresses up to 47 x 92cm.
This is the old standard size cot in New Zealand and is also called a Euro cot as it is common in the UK.
The NZ standard cot mattress measures 59 x 119cm or 60 x 120cm.
These are very uncommon in NZ now apart from older, hand me down cots. While they are called 'standard', they are now far from standard!
We can no longer source any linen specific for this size. Choose any cot linen for an American sized cot and it will fit fine (just the fitted sheet will be a little big and you can tuck in the excess).
Replacement cot mattresses can be ordered in foam only, no innersprung are available in this size.
This is now the most common size in New Zealand for cots. The measurement is usually 130 x 69cm, with a little variation such as 68 x 129 etc.
All cot linen available from The Sleep Store will fit an American size cot.
We do stock some items for large or Boori cot, which will also fot an American Cot (the fiited sheets will be a little big and the excess can easily be tucked in).
Both innersprung and foam mattress can easily be ordered in this American Cot Size.
This large cot size is much less common in New Zealand but relatively common in Australia.
Please check measurements on linen before ordering, as not all our linen will fit this size.
Boori cot mattresses are usually approx 77 x 132-135cm or variations around that.
All cot sheets from Living Textiles, aden+anais and Babu will fit a large or Boori Cot.
Baby First and American Baby Co sheets will NOT fit a Boori sized cot.
UK Large Cot Size (140 x 70cm mattress) or called UK Cot Bed.
This size is very uncommon in NZ and Australia.
Very hard to source linen in this size, click here for all our linen options and use the size or brand filter to find any available options. Ergopouch stretch sheets are an option or any of the Babu cot sheets or sets (76cm wide, 144cm long and suitable for a mattress up to 17cm deep).
Mattresses are only available in foam. No innersprung mattresses available in NZ in this size, you would need to import from the UK.
