There is NOTHING worse than having a kid wet the bed or throw up and having to dig out sheets and deal with all of that. It’s traumatic already and you’re tired. Strip the top set of sheets and your bed will already be made. Grab a spare blanket or a comforter and pray that the Lovies didn’t get ruined.
Whatever your baby has gravitated towards as a comforting item, stock up and switch often. These little guys are SO smart that they’ll be able to tell which was the original. Every time they’re in the wash, switch. You will lose them, one will be in another car, left at daycare, it’s just better to have more. (That’s our Lovie– He’s from the North American Bear Company; I had 7 in its prime usage days and now we have 4)
