Keeping Track of Medicine

Keep track of your child’s medicine dosage to make sure you are on track by simply drawing a quick graph on the back with a Sharpie. Then tape the Sharpie to the side of the bottle to remind yourself to mark each dose given.

Layer Crib Bedding

To save time in the middle of the night after a potty accident in the crib, put two sets of sheets and mattress protectors on the crib mattress. Layer like this: mattress pad, sheet, mattress pad, sheet. When the diaper leaks and the bed is wet, all you have to do is strip the top sheet and mattress protector to reveal the second layer underneath without having to completely re-make the bed.
