Last year my baby spent a lot of time in the hospital. Within seven months, she was admitted to ICU five times, and it was an incredibly difficult time.  We were blessed with really wonderful doctors, and exceptional nurses who took great care of her, and  when you’re spending weeks in the hospital at one time, you get to know them pretty well.  

Caroline was between 15-21 months during this time, and being old enough to walk but young enough to be confined in a crib was a challenge, and I was constantly looking for ways to entertain her.  She also had a lot of shots, IV’s and treatments and watching your baby go through it is pretty terrible.  The nurses were definitely the bright spots–they were so good with her, and were constantly coming up with ways to make things easier.  That’s how I learned about the washcloth boo-boo bunny!

And it couldn’t be easier…all it takes is a washcloth and a rubber band!

Grab hold of the part that’s bent in the front, and wrap the rubber band around it.

I added a piece of pink grosgrain ribbon cut into a triangle for a cute little nose, and a Sharpie to make eyes and whiskers. I covered up the rubber band with a piece of ribbon tied around it. Adorable!
