Things I Learned on the Internet #3 - Double baggin' it!

Thanks to the tip on The Eye of Sauron your little one's little heiney is no longer getting soaked in public bathrooms. Fantastic! You're thinking it's time to ditch the nighttime diaper but fear nocturnal accidents. Can't say I blame you, fitted crib sheets are a pain in the ass in the harsh light of day. Dealing with them in the dead of night? Forget it! That's why I'm glad a wise mom on the internet once shared the trick of double bagging it. What? Well, you know how many words a picture is worth...

This is actually a clean bed, but let's pretend it's one in need of changing at 3:00 in the morning:
What's this under here? A waterproof mattress pad? Well that's not terribly innovative...
 
A-ha! But under the mattress pad there is... ANOTHER SHEET! 
Sheet, waterproof mattress pad, sheet. It'll save your life. Or at least your night's sleep. Yes, you still have to deal with the laundry in the morning, but very quickly you can return your child's bed to it's usual, ordered state and march yourself back to bed. Yeah, I don't know where she sleeps either.

Excellent idea!

That's an awesome idea! My daughter's bed looked like that. I convinced her to let her "friends" sleep in their own bed in the floor next to hers. It actually worked. Now she only has gloworm, violet, Dotty the baby doll, and baby puppy.

@Teena, thanks! I wish I could take credit for it. But I *am* the one who included a pictorial guide. That counts for something, right?

@Eliza, I might put a stop to it if they cause her to fall out of bed or something, but until then... Meh, it's her bed. :)

@Jen, I'm 15 too because I giggled as a wrote it.

@Kathy, thanks! Luckily (?) it has only come in handy for us a couple of times.
