Sidecar and sheets

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi there

I'm thinking about sidecarring my daughter's crib. She is constantly in the bed with us, which is fine, but I'd like a little more space. 

I'm wondering how people put sheets on both. I actually tried to sidecar a while ago and hated how the crib mattress felt with a bump in it. I'd like to get a mattress connector from Bed bath and Beyond to make it comfier but then I don't know how I would put a sheet over our king and the crib? 

I'd love to hear how you all have made this work!! 

Thanks

Dana

i dont know what a mattress connector is.  i tuck a single bed flat sheet tightly around the crib mattress and spread out the excess underneath the big mattress.  then the fitted goes on the big mattress as usual, and the wieght of that big mattress holds the single bed sheet in place.  it has never come loose and we have been doing this for five years, two kids.  really though, somebody should be making giant L shaped fitted sheets and selling  them on ebay.  if i sewed i might consider a second business making custom sheets :)
