We make fitted cot sheets featuring a hidden waterproof layer in the reverse side. This means that you have an all-in-one waterproof fitted sheet, rather than a traditional separate mattress protector and fitted cot sheet.
It's hard to believe isn't it? Textile manufacturing has come a long was since we were kids. Thankfully there are clever people who paid attention in chemistry class!
Today there is a wonderful product called Polyurethane Laminate or PUL for short (a high-tech man made film that is bonded to fabric, making the piece of fabric waterproof). It is the same technology that is used in modern cloth nappies.
Our sheets can easily absorb up to 100mL of fluid, more than enough to cope with nappy leaks and milk spills.
Nope! Forget about any thoughts of a crunchy hospital mattress or plastic PVC layers. We have worked really hard to source the absolute best materials to create a product that looks and feels just like a regular fitted sheet when on your cot mattress. No crunching, we promise!
The waterproof film we use is 0.02mm (less than half the width of the average human hair) which is bonded to a fabric layer. It also happens to be slightly flexible, so unlike crinkly cellophane, it moves with the fabric and feels soft to touch. The waterproof membrane is super thin, flexible and pretty much invisible when on your mattress.
Polyurethane laminate film is permeable to air. This means that it allows the flow of air molecules to pass through it's microscopic holes. However, larger molecules like water are too big to pass through and so the film is waterproof.
They certainly are, PUL is used in modern cloth nappies and medical grade textiles and dressings. It is totally stable and safe for use in babies and children's products. It contains no BPA's or other nasties.
We follow the bedding recommendations provided by Red Nose which includes sleeping babies on a firm mattress, with no extra layers of padding added to the sheet that might interfere with the firmness of the surface.
You can find safe mattress advice here using the Australian/New Zealand standard AS/NZS 8811.1:2013 Sleep surfaces – test for firmness.
Even if you don't buy our sheets, we recommend checking this out, as it is a voluntary standard and you might be surprised to learn that many mattresses actually don't meet the recommendation.
We use 300 thread count, GOTS certified organic cotton fabric sheeting. We also use GOTS certified eco friendly dyes and digitally print our fabric, a significantly more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional print methods.
The waterproof component is polyurethane laminated fabric sewn into the reverse side of the sheet.
Absolutely. We have spent over three years developing our product. Our original prototypes have been well tested by our three children and are still going strong 4 years later. We absolutely guarentee the quality and workmaship of our product.
Aside from our gorgeous designs, super soft fabric and quality composition, we use the best PUL on the market. Our sheets require no special treatment and can be washed with regular laundry.
The fine print on other brands of waterproof sheets will tell you to wash on cold, no tumble drying, no exposure to UV light etc... When low grade PUL is exposed to these conditions it will literally fall apart or become hard. Kind of impractical huh? Thankfully our sheets easily handle a regular laundering process.
We are the only waterproof fitted sheet on the market that complies with the safe sleeping guidelines as recommended by Red Nose.
We have some exciting plans for 2020. A single sheet design is due mid year with other sizes to follow. Keep an eye out on our socials and subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when thy arrive!

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having a significant impact on the lives of all Australians. At Little Human® Linens we wanted to let you know what we are doing during this time.
The health and safety of our customers and partners is at the forefront of every decision we make in business. As a small ecommerce business, we are in a fortunate position to continue normal operations, while observing the medical advice regarding social distancing and hand hygiene.
