Mommy MacGyver: What To Do When You Forget to Pack a Crib

Step One:

Find a couple of chairs. (Preferably ones that are the same or similar. With arms).

Step Two:

Put the chairs together.

Step Three:

Pad the chairs. (A wash cloth in the crack before you start with the blankets is key).

Step Four:

Test with a baby. (Stand close. You know, just in case).

Step Five:

Put kiddo to bed. (And don't be surprised when he gets a better night's sleep than you).

Ah, yes... I had to use all kinds of creativity when we galavanted around Korea for a month last summer and of course I had no crib for Alex... creative indeed! Then we came home and he refused to sleep in his crib. I should have used the chair method! :)

Love it. The best part is that even if I didn't know for sure, I would automatically guess that this wasn't your first baby. Indeed, with the third you improvise. And with the first, you wouldn't have dreamt of forgetting a crib! (Or, maybe I'm reading too much into this...)

Most hotels have pack and plays on hand if you call downstairs they bring you one.
