Q "Why do I need a waterproof sheet?"
A: A clean, hygenic sleep surface is essential to creating a safe sleeping environment. Without a waterproof barrier, leaks from spit up milk soak into the mattress surface creating a perfect environment for mould to grow.
Q “Can’t I just use a regular mattress protector?”
A: Of course your can. You'll also need a couple of regular fitted sheets... and a couple of spare mattress protectors - in case the one your using becomes soiled.
Alternatively you could save some yourself time, money and cupboard space and use our all in one waterproof sheet.
If you double them up using our Mum Hack, you simply remove the soiled top layer; leaving a clean and dry sheet underneath.
Q: “Are they safe?"
A: Yes they are. In fact, safe sleeping authorities in Australia (Red Nose) & the UK (The Lullaby Trust) support/recommend the use of a tight fitting waterproof mattress protector.
Our sheets have no additional padding, so the mattress surface remains firm and flat as recommended.
