We all know how hard it can be to dry out a mattress and when you have had an accident and the chances of the mattress getting wet are high. Mattress protectors are an effective bedwetting product that you can use until your child finally grows out of the problem for good. If your child does a lot of camping, you should think about getting a waterproof sleeping bag liner, which will help keep the sleeping bag clean if your little one has an accident. Mattress protectors generally feature a plastic protective layer with padding and cords to attach the mattress protector to the bed, and sheets are designed to be placed over the mattress protectors. They come in all sizes, from singles all the way up to king size.
Waterproof pads are slightly different to mattress protectors. They generally don’t cover the entire bed, only the area where accidents are most likely to happen and you can just throw the dirty ones away or you could wash it and reuse it. They are usually placed on top of the sheets and can be tucked in under the mattress. They have great absorbency and can hold about 4 times the amount of urine that the bladder can produce. A waterproof pad will mean less changing of the sheets as the waterproof bottom layer stops the fluid soaking through to the sheet and mattress underneath.
