Special Needs Beds For Kids & Adults: Safety & Comfort

When your child requires special care, it's sometimes hard to find comfortable bedding solutions that keep them warm and safe throughout the night. Plus, as a parent, leaving your child or loved one alone for an extended time is challenging, especially if you don't have the right bed or bedding. 

Thankfully, with the right bedding and special needs beds, your child will be comfortable and safe, and you'll also be able to sleep throughout the night.

We're here to walk you through how different beds for special needs can give you peace of mind and keep your kiddos warm and comfortable.

Zipper Bedding Designs Create An Enclosed Autism Bed

When looking for special needs beds, there are several things to consider, including the structural design of the bed and the bedding itself. The bedding has several components: a fitted sheet, a top sheet, and a cover, and dealing with these can be overstimulating for some children and adults, especially those who struggle with motor skills. 

With zipper bedding designs, you can create a simple, safe, comfortable, and enclosed autism bed. An all-in-one solution turns three pieces of bedding into one, accommodating your child's needs and ensuring they sleep safely throughout the night.

This design also helps to keep your child enclosed in the bedding, with the zipper design eliminating distractions and creating a relaxing space that allows only minimal movement. 

Keep in mind: The bedding is only part of a successful bed for special needs. We also recommend looking into enclosed bed designs, which are good at creating a comfortable and safe sleeping environment.


Why Beddy's Bedding is the Best Choice

We initially designed Beddy's bed sets to make it quick and easy for small children to make their own beds. However, it became clear in the process of starting the Beddy's company that the zipper bedding design could help others, too, including kids with specific challenges, needs, and conditions.                       

To be clear, we're not saying that Beddy's is a medical product or that a Beddy's set will treat or cure any condition or magically fix someone's problems. However, Beddy's can offer small comforts and small victories that can make a big difference to those with special needs (and their caregivers).

Here is how Beddy's bedding can make things easier for kids and adults with certain needs and conditions.

Autism spectrum

As you know, when your loved one has autism, they experience every situation differently. With traditional bedding on an enclosed autism bed, there's no telling how they will react throughout the night -- the different components can be overwhelming and leave them feeling uncomfortable or overstimulated. 

With our Beddy's design, everything stays in one piece, so there's no need for people with autism to worry about their bedding being upside down or inside out. Keeping one side of the comforter zipped at night can also help a child feel enclosed in a soothing and comforting way. The ease of use is also a motivational tool and a manageable step toward independence and self-reliance. 

Our design can also fit various bed sizes, including beds for autistic adults, bunk beds, or toddler beds.

Sensory disorders

When your child or loved one has a sensory disorder, a distraction-free space is important as it helps them sleep through the night. Traditional bedding has several layers, which can be distracting and overwhelming.

Kids sensitive to sensory stimulation and needing certain kinds of fibers will love the softness of Beddy's cuddle fabric, which also has removable tags. Don't yank them, though, or the bedding will tear!

An easy-to-make bed means an overall neater space, which helps keep sensitive kids from being overwhelmed by clutter.

Motor-skill challenges

If your child or loved one struggles with motor skills, the last thing you want is for them to get stuck in the top sheet in the middle of the night. When this happens, they may find it hard to unwrap the sheets, leading to screaming or extreme behaviors that can wake you and them.

With Beddy's, there's only one step in the entire bed-making process, which makes it easy as you don't need to move the bed around to fold things over and tuck in corners.

The same benefits can help adults with chronic pain, arthritis, or back problems that make bed-making a more significant challenge.


When someone suffers from clinical depression, the simplest tasks can become monumental and frustrating. An adult with depression simply doesn’t have the energy to clean, so things can quickly get cluttered and out of order. When tidying an entire room is overwhelming, an easy bed-making process can mean a lot, as any sense of accomplishment can make a day feel more manageable.

Hospital stays

Hospital stays can be challenging for families, children, or adults. Traditional hospital bedding is often scratchy and uncomfortable, making an uneasy situation even harder. 

The good news is that Beddy's sets are a perfect fit for hospital beds, allowing you to bring the soft, sweet comfort of home to a child's or teen's hospital room. Getting a good night's sleep in a hospital can be challenging, but soft, comfortable bedding will make it easier.

Beddy's bedding will also brighten the hospital room, helping your child feel safer in a space that feels like their own. This is especially true for kids forced into extended hospital stays or those who go in for regular or repeat surgeries or procedures.
