ds is 4 and sleeps in my bed for most of the night. He has wet the bed a couple of times recently and my mattress is going to end up ruined. Can you get double bed sized plastic protector thingys? Are they horrible to sleep on? What is the alternative?
beansmum i used a single mattress protector thingy (couldnt find a double size one altho im sure you can get them) and dd/s just slept on that side of the bed it was horrible to sleep on, i have to admit, we used to put old towels over the top but under the sheet
Thanks. I might have to try that. Actually the one on ds's bed is pretty wide, one like that would probably cover most of the bed. I put towels down at the moment, but even folded over they aren't thick enough to stop the wee soaking through, and ds sleeps on his front which doesn't help.
i thnk a mattress protector (min was soft not plasticky) plus a towel is best cos even if ds does wee the mattress protector is still a bit wet. if you have a towel you can change the towel and the mattress is still ok
actually i hthnk i still have the mattreess thingy if you want it beansmum
great! i still have sicky children in bed at times but they just use a sick bucket and dd2 has been potty trained for over a year now so its just in the cupboard never to be used agian by me! i can send it to you or meet you in town if yo liek or drop it off at your house (you live in Edn dont you?)
