When Max was still taking bottles at night, he would sometimes pee through his clothes. Do you know how inconvenient it is to change a crib sheet at 3 a.m. while dealing with a newborn?! Not cool. Eventually, I started putting two sheets on the crib, with an absorbant mattress pad in between, so if he peed through his clothes, or even spit up in his crib, all I had to do was pull off the top sheet and pad, and he was set.
Evidently, I wasn't the only one having this problem, becuase I came across Clouds and Stars, the creator of the QuickZip Crib sheet. I received the sheet in Green Gingham to review. Basically, you put the entire matress into the sheet, and then you take the top and it attaches by zipper all the way around. To be honest, it was kind of a pain getting the mattress into the sheet, but you only have to do this once, especially if you by multiple top sheets. So changing the sheet means unzipping the old one off, and zipping on a new one. I had a tough time getting the top sheet onto the zipper at first, but I think it will definitely become easier with practice. I love the idea of only having to change the tops, but I do think it could be improved. I think it would be great if it had two top layers, and after you unzipped the first layer, there was another sheet already there, so you didn't have to worry about zipping on a new top sheet in the middle of the night. Very cool product that I'm glad to have found!
