A sweet solution

Bekah has started this nasty habit.  She tucks her arms behind the tray or arms of whatever chair she is sitting in.  One day she came home from school with red sores rubbed on her arms where she had rubbed her arms against the fabric of her wheelchair all day.  A solution had to be found!

Someone told me that they used fabric covered pool noodles on their babies crib to keep their child from chewing on the crib bars.  This sparked an idea!

Sure enough, the pool noodles fit perfectly once cut to the right length and opened up to slip over the back of the wheelchair.

A friend of mine, Maria Davis (You can read more from her over at Middle Places.) gave me this beautiful flannel to cover the noodles.  Isn’t it just sweet?!

I love the solution we found!  This makes me want to make lots of different covers for all different seasons and holidays!
