Here’s a guide to caring for your Moses basket bedding. It’s important to wash and care for your baby’s bedding and sheets correctly to protect your newborn from bed bugs and any irritants.
- Remove the bedding from the Moses basket: the padded liner (if there is one), and the hood can be removed from the rods.
- Read the label: Check the care instructions on the bedding for specific washing instructions. Most Clair de Lune Moses basket dressings are machine washable at 30 degrees.
- Wash the bedding: Place the bedding in the washing machine and wash according to the care instructions.
- Rinse: Rinse the bedding with clean water until all soap residue is gone.
- Dry: Hang or lay flat to air dry.
- Check for dryness: Once dry, check the bedding for any remaining moisture or damp spots and dry again if necessary.
- Store: Fold and store in a clean, dry place until ready to use again.
Note: You should avoid using fabric softeners, bleach, and any harsh chemicals as these can irritate a baby's delicate skin.
