Back when I was shopping for baby gear, I bought a changing pad and changing pad cover. I figured I’d only need one changing pad cover because I’d wash it when it got dirty. Which, I do. However, there are days/weeks when it gets dirty more frequently than I have loads of laundry to wash. Like this week. First it was poop, in the wash it went with other pinks/ reds. Then the same day it came out of the dryer, she peed in the middle of a diaper change.
If I’d had a 2nd one, I could have put that one on and I wouldn’t have to lay her right on the plastic of the changing pad while I wait to have a load of clothes ready to wash the pad cover with. I refuse to run the washer for one thing. In fact, I may just go ahead and order a 2nd changing pad cover because I’m frustrated by this happening.
While it seems redundant to buy two, I am now thinking it’s necessary.
