There's a naked baby in my bed

Y'all have inspired me to give it a shot. Sure, I've got a VBSN and some Babyology longies on their way here, but I'm fickle like that. Plus, she just looks so darn happy lying there all spread out and nekkie (although it was harder to get her to settle down - she loves being naked so much, it was like she had won the lottery or something!)

Question: all you co-sleepers who let your LO sleep with no dipe, do the misses go up onto the blankets, or mainly just down? I imagine this would go differently for boys vs girls.

Usually just down under her, but she has always slept with undies on under fleece pj's, which I think makes a difference. If she was totally naked it could be a huge mess!

Yeah, I know, don't know why I am living with such reckless abandon tonight. Might be because I had Dunkin donuts for dinner.

Re: There's a naked baby in my bed

Well if it makes you feel any better Whilder actually slept butt naked wearing nothing but a Hanna dress last night! She was being a brat and didn't want to take it off, so in my pregnancy induced fit of laziness I just left her in it No pee in the bed though! Although as she was on her way to the potty this morning she pee'd a tiny bit right on DH's foot, he was sleeping on the floor and not so happy to wake up to a pee-foot

Re: There's a naked baby in my bed

That DOES make me feel better. Well, we've already had one big pee in the bed so far, about 10 minutes ago. I'm excited to be doing this, if only because I'm curious to see when she goes.

That's funny about the pee foot! Yeah, I've faced a little resistance from The Other Side of the Bed about this evening's experiment, have a feeling Q will be staying on my side of the bed tonight!!

Re: There's a naked baby in my bed

What are you using under her? We have a huge plastic matress pad that covers the whole bed under the sheets just in case... but I've heard a lot of people really like to use a felted wool blanket under the baby, like the old army kind you can get at a thrift store. When Whilder was little I had these awesome pads I got from a DS WAHM, they were PUL on the back side and microfleece on the front, so they would contain the wetness but it would wick through the fleece so she wouldn't feel wet or have to sleep in a wet spot if that makes sense.

We also have a waterproof thing under the sheets - I think it is PUL actually. She has a few pads under her, including one from the EC store which is PUL on one side and cotton/hemp maybe on the other. The fleece sounds like a good idea.
