Hi there

I have a 5 year old and 3 year old in bunks and just bought new mattresses..DS1 is 5 and in the top bunk and we are thinking ahead to taking the nappies off..

I am just not sure what the best way to protect the mattress is and how to minimise hassle in the night for the inevitable accident and bed change (especially top bunk!)

I have seen different mattress protectors ie quilted with waterproofing in, terry towelling and plain old PVC crinkly stuff.The first two seem to be fitted like sheets under the main sheet. My mum said she used a draw sheet too which caught the worst of it..

Should I have spares in the cupboard for the nights it happens( ie one extra protector in the cupboard) or do you think you can get away with less...the cost seems to be mounting and I just don't know the best way forward...any tips gratefully received! Thanks

i have 2 dd 7 and 3 in bunks. i have spare mattress protectors so can do a quick change overnight. But dd1 age 7 in top bunk she doesnt wet bed. I use terry waterproof protector.

I use a mattress protector on all beds but on DS2's (9), I also use a pampers bed mat which do stop the wet getting onto the mattress.

M&S do them and at the minute they are 30% off so a single bed is about £15 to cover with a quilted waterproof one.

The white company do very good mattress pads which you can swap out easily - providing your child does not poop in the furthest corner of the bed (which of course mine do!)
