View Full Version : Cocoa is doing Donuts in her crib...UCS question
08-06-2003, 05:29 PM
Sleeping on her stomach still, Cocoa is now doing 180/Donuts in her crib. The way it is built, we don't have a way to attach one side of the UCS to the very back. It has a solid what will be headboard once it converts.
I wonder when I should remove it if I cannot figure a way to attach the female end of the snap to the back. I don't want her to get stuck under the UCS. I wonder when you can remove it all together.
She is starting to be a drool-a-matic so the sheets would get otherwise soaked.

Kiki also is a stomach sleeper and master donut maker, and she's been drooling for several weeks, leaving what DH calls "snail tracks" all around the crib. At least we can track her path. :) We have a sleigh style crib, so the UCS is only attached on two sides. The other two sides aren't attached to anything. They are the short sides, the head and foot, so I'm only missing one strap on each side, so it's a little different, but I just shove the elastic down the mattress side to keep it out of the way. The mattress is in so tight, it's pretty tough to pull it out. Kiki hasn't been able to move the UCS at all, yet. She has however managed to get her hands caught under the Sheet Saver we used to put under her head, so that's now gone. Kiki is grabbing at the sheet now, and tries to mouth it, but it pretty much stays put.
Could you attach a new male snap to the side of the mattress and snap the female that way?

Anna did this too, though she slept on her back. Now that she rolls and sleeps on her stomach, the spinning around seems to have stopped.
Could you sew some snaps onto the crib sheet? Or maybe just a loop on the side of the crib sheet and loop the UCS though that? Does that make sense?
