Moving DS1 out of his cotbed bed at 3.5 yrs old. He's still in a nappy at night and so we have yet to face the inevitable accidents in the night.

What can I do to protect the mattress? Can you get big versions of the zip top protectors mothercare make for cots? Sleeping on plastic sheets is horrible even if they're well often do that.

Any suggestions?

John Lewis do a breathable wipe-clean fitted mattress protector. It works!

Dunelm do a breathable 'fleecy type' waterproof mattress protector for all beds. We bought one for our DS's bed and it was only £7.99

Get a wipe-clean one. IME the towelling sort and the quilted sort often aren't adequately waterproof, and , even if they are, they get wet too and you end up having to change the protector as well as the sheet in the middle of the night.
