Know that feeling you get when you say something, and you know instantly by talking about it you’ve jinxed yourself? Earlier this month when I told you Birdie was now diaper-free through the night was one of those occasions. Her soggy bottom is back.
She still goes to bed without a pull-up on (because I refuse to regress back that far). Lately, more times than not, she wets the bed. Here is the really gross part – she pees herself and just doesn’t care. She’s not embarrassed, mortified or shocked that she’s just wet herself. There is no shame (and I’m not going to shame her for it, it’s truly an accident). She’s just like: “oh look, I urinated on myself, carry on as you were….”
So between her nighttime wettings, and the 4am feeding for Gage, I’m getting a bit ragged around the edges. But I’ve come up with another lazy momma time saving trick. (your going to want to remember this one)
Are you ready?
I’m layering Birdies bed with fresh multiple mattress pads and clean sheets! There is nothing I hate worse than tracking down bedding and making a bed in the middle of the night. Now, when the accident happends, I just strip off the wet and offensive bedding, and wala, the bed is made again!
See the above picture? What you are looking at there is a sheet, mattress pad, sheet, mattress pad, sheet, and mattress pad. A whole weeks worth of bedding just waiting to be peed on.
Some might call me lazy, but I think it’s closer to brilliant.
