I can’t believe my sweet little Vivian is now 6 months old. How time flies!! I still so clearly remember the morning of her birthday – I had no idea that she was about to be born! And now she is grabbing everything and smiling with friends and strangers. Her newest trick is sitting up, which allows her to interact with Evie and Mack in a whole new way.
Since we brought her home from the hospital, Vivian has been sleeping next to me in her ArmsReach CoSleeper. Its been so easy for me to nurse her in the middle of the night, and Chris and I sleep soundly knowing that she is in a safe place. But, now that she is 6 months old it is time to move her into a real crib. I think we’ll make the move this weekend, so today I washed the crib linens.
Its been a while since we’ve used the crib, and I was quickly reminded of how much it sucks to change crib sheets. When Evie was a new baby I tried to change the sheets while the mattress was in place. But, I soon figured out it was much easier to pull the mattress out completely. It takes a little extra effort up front, but it pays off in the end. Thought I’d share this little trick here in case some other Homemade Mothers need the help!
Pull the mattress out and rest it on top of the crib (we use an organic crib mattress from OMI):
