Bedwetting is a common occurrence in childhood, but it can disrupt your family's sleep – and your sheets. Being ready to deal with a wet bed will help you handle everything easily and efficiently at night. Making things less uncomfortable will make your child feel less embarrassed and relieve some of the strain you're all under.
Mattresses are costly, and once damp, they're hard to clean. Investing in a few necessities, when your little one wets the bed on a daily basis or every once in a while, makes sense.
Why Are Protectors Needed?
Waterproof Protectors are an excellent way to keep your inner layers dry, while also ensuring it stays free from odour. The protectors can absorb liquid to ensure that your baby sheets and blankets don’t get spoilt and damaged for further use.
Mattress pads usually get a breathable fabric layer on top, giving them the appearance and feel of a regular mattress cover. A waterproof sheet, normally made of polyurethane, lies underneath. Polyurethane is absorbent and waterproof, so it won't keep your child uncomfortable at night.
If a waterproof mattress pad absorbs moisture, it can be washed with the covers in the washer. Pads that are thicker and more absorbent can take longer to dry.
How To Wash Bedding?
To wash the bedding, you need to first ensure that it is truly damp and requires cleaning. A waterproof mattress pad is used over a mattress and under the bottom layer. Fitted variants with an elastic waist skirt are available, as well as flat variants with flexible loops on each corner.
Wet bedding should be washed as soon as possible. It's worth noting that some waterproof bedding shouldn't be bleached.
If you're changing damp bed sheets in the middle of the night, tossing it in the bathtub before you're prepared to deal with this in the daylight will keep urine off of other surfaces. Give it a fast rinse if you have the time.
Now that you know why it’s important to have a waterproof bed sheet protector for baby, go ahead and get one for your little one!
