The Perfect Solution to Bed Wetting Problems

We often get asked what is the perfect product to deal with Bed Wetting, and the truth is that it’s not about one product alone, it’s about having a comprehensive set of bedding products to ensure your mattress is fully protected, whilst at the same time making sure any leaks are quickly absorbed, don’t stray onto bedding and products can be quickly changed to avoid anyone getting wet themselves.

A Waterproof Mattress Protector is Critical

 Although most people think of Absorbent Bed Pads as the most important part, we’d actually disagree, as for us a Waterproof Mattress Protector is the crucial part.

 Why? Because this will stop the most expensive part of the bed, your mattress, getting wet and damaged. Bed Sheets and even duvets and pillows can be washed if needed, a mattress cannot.  

We recommend you choose as soft a waterproof mattress protector as you can find as you will be sleeping on top of this so you want it to be soft and comfortable so you get a good nights sleep. For this reason we also advise against plastic based mattress protectors which are often cheaper, as these can be feel sticky and sweaty at night, especially during summer months.

A Waterproof, Absorbent Bed Pad is actually the next most important item. Whether you choose a Bed pad without wings or with wings is down to personal preference. A Bed Pad with Wings (like our Brolly Sheets) is less likely to move around the bed (due to the wings), however some prefer a normal Bed Pad, as this can be positioned freely on the bed. 

It’s worth noting that the difference between Brolly Sheets Bed Pads and other manufacturers products is our 100% cotton top. This means that the pad is comfortable enough to sleep on top of, rather than having to place it under the bed sheet, this has the benefits of both speeding up removal and replacement at night and also reducing the risk of getting the bed sheet wet. Our large range of colours means we're more likely than anyone else to have a bed pad that matches your colour schemes too.

Although most people use normal bed sheets on top of the mattress cover, extra security can be added by using a Brolly Sheets Waterproof Bed Sheet, this is a unique product combing cotton jersey with a very thin plastic membrane to give 100% waterproof protection.

Don't Forget To Protect Soft Bedding Too

 Finally, many people use waterproof Pillow and Duvet protectors to protect soft bedding from leaks, thus reducing washing and extending their life. Ideally these should be zipped to give full protection from leaks.

This may seem like a lot of products, but buy well and they will last years and be an investment in protecting your mattress and bedding, all of which cost a lot more to replace.
