I’ve visited my friends places for overnight stays and they have a sheet under the doona cover, I don’t do this so was wondering if any of you mums do the same?

  • Yes. I have a sheet, then a blanket and then the doona.

  • No, but we do wash the duvet covers once a week.

  • No, but I do wash the duvet cover weekly. I’d use a sheet if I wasn’t washing it that often.

  • I do. I feel odd without one.

  • Yes definitely have to have a top sheet I just can’t cope without one I like being tucked in and in summer when it’s hot a lot of nights are only the top sheet and no doona .

  • Yes I do but my husband doesn’t so depends who makes the bed but most of the time yes.

  • No, we just change the duvet covers weekly.

  • Yes I use a sheet under the doona cover. It’s easier when it comes to washing, and even in hot weather I take the doona off but still prefer a sheet over me.

  • if you use quit covers then i cant see the use in a top sheet… i dont use a top sheet, only a fitted one… less washing for me! I keep the flat sheet out of sets and sew them into another fitted sheet, its easy enough to do and again saves me money…

  • Nope. I only have fitted sheets and doonas here

  • A sheet accumulates any dander (dead skin), saliva etc. which would otherwise go on your doona cover, making it necessary wash your doona cover every week…or if sickness occurs more often. A sheet is easier to wash.

  • yep, sheet, blanket and quilt

  • No my husband hates it. So I am now trained not to have a sheet under the dooner.

  • Yes always have sheets under them. Less things to wash and have to dry especially over winter and it acts as a barrier for the winter woollen blankets that go on too

  • I always use a sheet under the doona. Given the price of doona covers, it makes much more sense to be washing sheets regularly than doona covers, less fading and more life from your doona cover.
