Please, recommend me a waterproof single mattress cover

They either tear, are not waterproof, rustle or come off when my Ds moves about in bed... There must be a good one on the market! DS is 3 and just moved to a single (not child bed, a proper single, but not night-dry yet so still in night nappies.) And any recommendations on a night nappy that will fit a big/tall for his age 3 year old I will be really grateful.

My children struggled with 'proper' mattress protectors. Fortunately we have few accidents so use disposable Pampers' bedmats - generally next to pull-ups in supermarket. Handy for sleep-overs with grandparents too

Hippychick do fab waterproof covers they are expensive but worth it

Try drynights from dunelm,no rustling and they wash fab.They do a terry towelling one,a soft brushed cotton one or quilted.Ive bought in the past for a relative and recently for my son and I have no complaints x

Never had any complaints about our John Lewis ones. Terry towelling top and no rustling.

ikea have fantastic ones!

bellablot Sat 15-Feb-14 22:39:47

Dunelm do them for £11.99 ish. Toweling tops and no rustling what so ever, they have been fantastic. If you're worried even with a cover on, those disposable bed mats are great too!

The dunelm ones are good - I've got 2 for dd and layer them up with a sheet on top of each so I can whip the top layer off if she has an accident in the night.

Thinking about getting a Kylie one for DF, they're meant to be good.

I've got an m&s one on our bed as DS often comes in to us and it's brilliant. Really soft and not rustly at all.

He's currently got an ASDA one on his junior bed which I'd recommend too, soft towelling top and not rustly either

FaceDirectionOfTravel Sat 15-Feb-14 22:43:53

I got some really good ones from B&M Home stores. £6. Terry facing.

Melfish Sat 15-Feb-14 22:44:34

here nothing to do with Ms Minogue!

DingbatsFur Sat 15-Feb-14 22:44:50

I second Ikea!

Brolly sheets do really nice waterproof bedding. No rustling etc the bedpads with tuck in wings are good also

curlykale Sat 15-Feb-14 22:51:06

yes, Hippychick. They're excellent - like very thick sheets, no rustling. For the night nappy you could try the Nappy Lady for a recommendation www.thenappylady.co.uk (if you are after a cloth nappy that is?).

She also sells the Hippychick covers: www.thenappylady.co.uk/mattress-bedding-protectors-/hippychick-flat-bed-protectors-change-mats.html

Can't link but bought a good one from
amazon seller was lovetosleep . It is waterproof terry towelling and not hot or noisy. Think it was about £8.

dayshiftdoris Sat 15-Feb-14 22:51:51

We have one from Dunelm and wished we had spent that bit extra earlier after 2 nasty rustling, plasticky ones xxxx

SoonToBeSix Sat 15-Feb-14 22:52:03

Sorry seller was LOVE2SLEEP

dayshiftdoris Sat 15-Feb-14 22:52:07

Sorry random xxxx there

Oldraver Sat 15-Feb-14 23:11:55

I've got a terry towelling one but as it is only waterproof on the top I also have one of the rustly ones underneath as on a few occasions DS has wet just as getting out of bed so need waterproofing all over. It doesnt rustle with the other one on the top (though know what you mean).

I also have some things that got under the bed and keep the sheets taught..they look like a piece of elastic with suspender rubber bits on. DS'S top mattress is 2'6" so the elastics are needed

Oldraver Sat 15-Feb-14 23:18:28

sheet straps brilliant to stop things moving around

LadyOnARooftop Sat 15-Feb-14 23:22:57

Dunelm Drynights range is brilliant. Doesn't rustle or tear, you can't really tell its a waterproof cover at all, and lets nothing through.
