Is it just me, or is this ridiculously hard and time consuming? Tyler is only really in the crib right now after diaper changes (so I can wash my hands) or for moments while I'm doing something in his room. Already he's peed through his diaper or spit up all over the sheet.

Am I missing something or does the whole mattress have to come out to change the sheet every time? And am I always changing the mattress cover and sheet? Or just the sheet?

And I now believe that bumpers aren't just discouraged for SiDS reduction, but because changing the sheet takes 20 min just to tie all the ties gain!! Ugh!

I lay a thin receiving blanket over the sheet and lay LO on that instead of the sheet. I change the receiving blanket as needed, but it cuts down drastically on sheet changes. And yes, it's a PITA...lol!

Yes, they're such a pain! I haven't even put her in her crib at all yet, just changed them when I first washed them. Right now she's sleeping in the pack 'n play and that has a changing table with it. So I haven't had to mess with the crib sheets but not looking forward to it when we get to that point.

Yeah, it's a pain. Confession: sometimes I just let it dry and stain and put him in a different part of the crib just so I don't have to change the sheet.

That was totally Joey's solution I like your style

So I googled around and found some helpful suggestions.
1. Only remove the bumper from the front and one side
2. Remove mattress on an angle instead of parallel to the sides
3. Put multiple sets of mattress pad & sheets on at once and remove layers as necessary (although I'm not sure this would help me since the fit is so tight).
4. Pull remaining bumper all the way to the top and slide mattress back under

I cut down my 20 min change to about five. Yeah! I honestly don't know how people survived before the Internet!!

I have to take the whole mattress out also I only take one one of the bumpers off and that makes it so the mattress will go in and out.

I only change the sheet the mattress pad I dont unless whatever soaks through the sheet and onto the pad too.

If its only spit up I'll do that same thing I'm not changing the sheet for just a little spit up just like I dont change her outfit everytime she spits up (not very often thankfully)

Just lay a receiving blanket down first and most likely if it gets peed on or spit up on it won't soak through to the sheet. Otherwise I only change the mattress pad if it gets wet too. Yeah, it's a pain though!

Hi! I am Angie, and I am stopping by from the November playroom (although my daughter was born in December.) I like to use sheet savers to protect my sheets from spit up or pee so I don't have to change the sheets constantly.
