She’s a Baby in a Bag

November 6, 2010

We’ve just bought Lorelei one of those cozy fleece sleep sacks – she seems to like it, and it allows me to be a bit more lazy about the middle-of-the-night diaper changes. I still do them, but now instead of wrangling with the footies of her PJs and snapping her all back up, I just leave her bottom half undone and zip the sack closed – it’s the baby equivalent of hiding everything under the bed before company comes over.

I must say, seeing this in print makes me feel like a terrible mother – what *other* shortcuts is she taking? you might reasonably ask…does she wash the baby along with the breakfast dishes? – but it doesn’t seem to bother her any.

The only problem is that Eric and I, being children of the late ’80s/early ’90s, somehow got “Baby in a Bag” stuck in our heads to the tune of “Living in a Box.” You may recall “Living in a Box” (the band, the album, and the single…yes, they all had the same name; even Milli Vanilli exhibited more independent creative spirit).

She’s a baby in a bag…she’s a baby in a real small bag…

    We were big fans of the baby in a bag πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, our kids don’t fit in them any more…on the plus side, they can (in theory) change their own clothes…

    The sleep-sacks are great! We do the same thing with the onesie, too. It doesn’t seem to bother our little guy, and it makes getting his tush in and out of the diaper a whole lot easier. πŸ™‚

    There have definitely been times I’ve looked at her in the sleep sack and wished they made them in grown-up sizes–they look so comfy! I guess we have the Snuggie, but it’s just not the same πŸ™‚

    Glad it’s not just me who takes that shortcut!
