Runny Babbits quilt and blanket sizes

Because of this huge variety in cot and mattress sizes, and because our baby quilts and blankets are individually hand-made to unique designs, they vary considerably in size. Please check the size of quilt carefully when purchasing to ensure they are suitable for your intended use.

The Lullaby Trust recommends you buy a new cot mattress if you can afford it, or – if using a used mattress – carefully check that it’s clean, dry and free from cracks or tears beforehand. Your cot mattress should be firm, with no sagging, and fit the cot snugly with no gaps. More advice is available from The Lullaby Trust (formerly FSID) who provide expert advice on safer sleep for babies.
