One of the best pieces of advice that I gleaned in my potty training information quest was this little tip. Whoever came up with is brilliant in my book! I can’t remember where I read it, or I would give them credit because credit is certainly due!
- Two (2) waterproof mattress covers. Tip: I purchased one mattress cover that wraps around the corners of my crib mattress. Then I bought a flat mattress protector at IKEA for $4. It doesn’t fit over the corners, but it was much cheaper!
- Two crib/bed fitted sheets.
If there is a nighttime accident, all you have to do is rip off the soiled sheet and mattress cover. The bed will already be made with the other set of sheet/cover, and it will be much easier to put your little one back to bed. You won’t have to dig up the clean sheets and try to re-make the bed in your half asleep state!
Now why didn’t I think of that?
