a new one.

i got ellie up from her nap a second ago, picked her up and carried her around the house with me while i gathered the diaper changing supplies that always seem to be strewn about in places that are not the places i need them to be at the time.

i put her down to go through her suitcase (still haven't unpacked) to get her something to wear for the day.

finally, i laid her down on the floor of her room to change her diaper and dress her.

she was naked from the waist down.

she had on a long shirt so i guess i didn't notice, but she didn't have a diaper on.

i looked in her crib to find a clean, dry diaper and a big wet spot on the sheet.

did she take her whole nap with no diaper? or...?

of course, i have never, and i am not exaggerating, put a sheet on ellie's bed without the waterproof mattress pad underneath.

not until the last time i put on her sheets, that is.

both pads were dirty so i just stuck a sheet on real quick 'cause it was time for a nap. this was the day before we left for district council.

so, yeah. her mattress is wet.

any suggestions for cleaning it?

i have a bedwetter and the best thing i've found is 1/4 c borax dissolved in about a gallon of hot water. drag the mattress out into the sunshine and scrub away. i try to only get the offending area wet and i try not to get it too saturated. i leave it out to dry in the sun. hope this helps.
