QuickZip Sheets are Easy to Change

My doctor told me that I would only be able to hold my children until they weighed 15 lbs. and I should only lift items up to 5 lbs. Well, my crib mattress was heavy! I knew I could not wrestle that thing in and out of the crib to change the sheets without causing myself a lot of unnecessary pain. I started looking around for options, and found these great QuickZip Sheets by Clouds and Stars.

The bottom-sheet goes underneath the mattress and wraps up over the sides of the mattress. The top sheet zips off and on easily. Since babies sleep mainly in the middle of the bed, the bottom sheet does not need to be changed often.

I also like these sheets because they do not come off and get tangled up when my daughter moves around in the crib. That made me feel much safer when she was young and I was concerned about SIDS. They even offer organic sheets if you are a green mom.

The QuickZip Sheet comes in two sizes: crib (which also fits toddler beds) and twin. The mom-owned company also sells sheets for pack-n-plays. I wish they had these sheets in Queen!

Right now, Cloud and Stars is having a "BOGO sale." Buy one zipper sheet; get one zipper sheet at 50% off with the purchase of a set (Blue Gingham, Green Gingham and Ecru only). The BOGO discount lasts through the end of February and you don't need a coupon code.

I purchased two starter sets and two extra top sheets. That seemed like too many--until my daughter got the flu.
