Lil Tip: Sheet Savers

Your body aches and your head is a fog, but the laundry is not giving you a break. Babies spit up and and have blowouts (sorry it's unavoidable) so Koala Sheet Savers ($10) are a new parent's lifesaver.

Each plush quilted cloth has four ties on each corner for attaching to the crib rails. Place one of these sheet savers by the baby's head (or rear if that's where it's more dire) and give your back and laundry pile a break.

It all has to be washed anyway. Call me simple but either way I have to get up to clean the baby so It doesn't matter. Even though it not a lot, I think I'll spend that money on something else.

I thought about getting the zip sheets, but I mean you still have to take the baby and the mattress out of the crib - so I don't see how they could be all that time saving. I agree this doesn't seem safe to me. Our little bugger never stayed in on spot.

I used to just lay one of these lap pads underneath baby's butt and over their sheets. When they're very little and not moving around much, it's the perfect protection for a blowout and really easy to replace in the middle of the night.

That's why I was liking the idea of the QuickZip sheets. You could easily zip off the top sheet, remove the wet pee pad under it and replace the whole setup without having to take off bumpers or struggle with getting the sheets around the corners of the mattress.

Schnappycat, Once again we agree :)The first thing that came to mind when I saw that was "wow, that doesn't look safe!" I'd rather be tired than risk my baby suffocating.

I got the Ultimate Crib Sheet for my shower and it sounded like a great thing, but I took it back to BRU this week after reading some consumer reviews that said it can be dangerous if baby gets underneath. So while the idea sounds perfect, I wonder about the safety of the ones that tie to the crib. Just reading one thing like that gives me pause.

That picture also looks like they are using the QuickZip sheets. These are the sheets where you can zip off the top sheet and easily replace it with another top sheet that zips back on. Anyone tried them? I'm all about trying to find ways to make those middle of the night blow outs easier to manage without completely waking up ;-)
