Let's talk Beddy's. Since we shared on our Instagram stories that we were trying out this new zippable bedding…..we got a LOT of feedback. So now that we've tested it out? Our full Beddy's review (and bonus, we got a discount code for y'all)!
Thank you to Beddy's for gifting us Lydia's sheets so that we could try them out for ourselves…..
So, we've been having some issues with Lydia's bed. To be specific, it was her bedding. Some of the issues? Ours. And some of the issues? Hers. Her old bedding? Kept slipping off the mattress. So night after night, she'd wake up in tangled mess of sheets. Then it was all of our problems. And her issue? It was really hard to make her bed. Now to be fair, Lydia's a pretty small kid and she has a queen sized bed. That's a little hard to make on your own when you can barely reach both sides. When we moved to our current house, we decided to have her use what had been our queen sized bed from our guest room in her room. We don't have that many out of town guests, and with all of our parents? It's one who visits at a time. Lydia on the other hand uses that bed every night, and the mattress was way better quality. Plus, as she gets older….she'll want a larger bed instead of the smaller bed she had in her princess themed room at our old house. All of that made sense, and we got her new sheets….but….they just weren't working.
Now, full disclosure….when it comes to Beddy's….the internet made me do it. I saw so many people sharing these zippable sheets. OVER AND OVER. And everyone seemed to be raving about them. I had to see if they were worth the hype. I actually saw a LOT of discussion about how great Beddy's are for bunk beds….but I was curious if I'd love them as much for a single bed. I did a bit of research, because….let's be honest these are definitely an investment. And spoiler, now I can see why.
Beddy's Review: Is It Worth the Money
Ok, so overall? THIS BEDDING IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. You know who was even a bigger skeptic than me? Robbie. I tried to explain how Beddy's worked before the arrived and he sort of rolled his eyes.
“What do you mean it's all one piece? Like a giant sleeping bag?”
I mean, yes it is one piece. And no, it's not like a sleeping bag. The entire bedding is like a fitted sheet, except that the top layers zip on. So it stays tight on your mattress (that's right, Lydia hasn't complained about her sheets coming loose) and? My favorite part? It's easy to MAKE THE BED. The first morning, Lydia woke us up at 6 am by screaming……
“I DID IT! I zipped my own bed up and it looks FANCY!”
A few details: the fabric is super soft, and very high quality. The top has a minky lining so it's definitely warm enough for cooler months and feels cozy as can be. Beddy's sheets also come in all sizes….so if you're thinking these are only for kids' beds? Try again. Yes, Lydia's bed is a very youthful color and design set. She picked it herself and she loves it. But there are also more mature palettes and patterns….and I'm about to order a set for our room. Because…..if I'm being honest….I'm terrible at making the bed.
I wanted to be sure to answer some of the questions you guys asked in Instagram Stories about Beddy's.
But how do you WASH the bedding? I got this question a LOT in stories, and I wanted to wash our set multiple times before I weighed in. Remember how the top part of the bedding zips? Well it zips all the way around. So to wash? I removed the entire bedding set at once, then unzipped the top section ALL THE WAY. I washed the two parts unattached, then dried and zipped them back together before putting our Beddy's set back on the bed.
Do you REALLY think it's worth the money? Honestly, I was a skeptic. But, yes I really do. The fabric is high quality, the zipper is well made, and it works PERFECTLY. Lydia's room looks so much better with a made bed and she's REALLY proud of the fact that she can do it herself (attention IEP / 504 and OT moms…..this will CHANGE YOUR KIDS life…..yes, they can do this on their own).
Can Lydia ACTUALLY make the bed on her own? Yes, yes she can. We put the sheets onto the bed after washing. But she can make the bed each morning. It takes under a minute (think 15 seconds or less) and she doesn't need reminding or prompting. My type a child? She loves how nice her room looks. So she makes the bed each and every morning when she wakes up and feels oh so proud of herself.
Are they cotton? Beddy's has both Minky versions and All Cotton versions. You can choose either.
Beddy's Review Comments: What Some of YOU Said
One thing that was so interesting to me……I had NO IDEA the amount of Beddy's superfans there are out there. When I first shared on Instagram Stories that we were trying them out…..the messages from y'all poured in. Man, YOU GUYS LOVE THIS BEDDING. I asked a few of you for permission to share your thoughts on your Beddy's experience.
“We love Beddy's. I bought it for my then 5 year old and after 2 weeks bought one for our bed too. Great for the winter so covers won't get kicked off.”
“My friend has these for all four of her girls and loves them!”
“We just got my youngest his first Beddy's…..with his many disabilities this what I thought would be best to give him responsibility and pride in working up to be able to make his own bed. Currently I zip it to 1 inch until close and he works hard sometimes with assistance to close it the rest of the way.” (as a teacher, I'm IN LOVE WITH THIS….way to empower him mom!)
“The Beddy's are the best! My kids love them and I got some for my mom who struggles with arthritis. She said it was so much easier for her to make her bed after washing.”
“We have had Beddy's for 4 years. My daughter has Down Syndrome and Autism and she has been able to make her bed at 4. Washes great!”
I mean, can you ask for better feedback? The verdict? We love our Beddy's. And I'm excited to give you guys a chance to get a set too. The team at Beddy's gave me a discount code that will give you 15% off ANYTHING you buy (with no expiration date).
