Baby Product Recommendations
From Susan (suz_suz)
I just have to rave about the ultimate crib sheet.
This is hands down my favorite thing because it is a soft, full-size, waterproof sheet that goes on top of the crib sheet
and fastens to the rails with elastic snaps. Whenever the baby makes a mess - it is so simple to change this -
especially in the middle of the night. If you use a crib bumper it is especially great because it is often hard to wrestle
the crib mattress out of the crib to change the sheet if you have a crib bumper. I would have to REMOVE the
whole bumber to change my crib sheet! This saves so much time and wrestling matches with crib mattresses! You
can still see your pretty crib sheet on the sides of the crib.
I had two so I always had a clean one to put on.
