|My first ever PUL cover...|
Nap time rolled around and Emersyn was in the wrap, with a trifolded prefold underneath. I noticed a little of the cotton that was holding one of the velcro tabs on had come a bit loose, but made the executive decision that it was still able to be used. I'd just sew it on a bit better after her nap.
Lesson one - NEVER send a product out (even if it's just to your daughter) if you aren't 100% happy with the workmanship.
Emersyn went to sleep - and ended up having a rather hefty nap. I decided after 2 hours that I should go in and check on her, just incase she was awake and was up to mischief. Not that she could get up to a lot of mischief in her cot. Right?
Upon opening the door I was met with a wall of STENCH... "Oh my - she must have done a might big poo", I thought to myself - suddenly wishing that I had actually Snappi'ed the prefold... Oh well - she had a cover on - the mess would be limited to that. Right?
I knew that I had to either see the funny side in the situation, or cry cry cry.. being that I was in a good mood, I saw the funny side. Being upset about it wasn't going to clean the mess up!
I ran a bath, then put Emersyn in it.. and after two changes of bath water she was sufficiently clean. Got her dried and dressed, then attacked the bedding - which I threw outside, because my washing machine had recently finished a hot wash, and after a hot wash it takes a couple of hours to work again. Yea, perfect timing for THAT to happen!
Eventually the bedding got washed, and the cot got re-made... and we all lived happily ever after - and I learnt a few little lessons along the way, one of the most important?? REINFORCE REINFORCE REINFORCE TABS!
