The Waterproof, Breathable, Cot Mattress Protector
A cot mattress protector is absolutely essential for many reasons - toilet training, bedwetting, allergies health and hygiene. Toilet Training with a young one is never easy. However before you even get to this point you will of course have your newest family member sleeping in a cot. Nappies being nappies and babies being inquisitive babies there are going to be times when the nappy will leak at night. Using a soft, comfortable waterproof cot mattress protector you simply remove the wet, soiled one and fit a clean, dry one in it's place. Very little disturbance to the baby is necessary. Unlike disposable pads you are also dealing with a one off purchase that you wash and re-use, kinder on your pocket and on the environment too.
When it does become time for toilet training you have to stop using nappies at some point, in fact many experts don't believe in using pants during the day and then nappies at night. At this point there is almost always going to be a couple or more of nighttime mishaps, again the SnugNights cot mattress protector makes it simple and quick to deal with, there are three different cot size protectors and then larger ones to suit junior beds, starter beds, bunk and single beds.
The SnugNights Cot Mattress Protector consists of an absorbent, soft 100% cotton terry toweling upper surface laminated to a very light, undetectable, breathable polyurethane membrane. This membrane is noiseless and does not cause the baby to overheat, Polyurethane is also completely inert, which means that it is completely free of and does not release any toxins and is therefore safe to use. All of our products have been awarded the prestigious European Oeko-Tex Standard 100 'products suitable for babies'. They are machine washable at high temperatures to destroy bacteria and dust mites and can be tumble dried if required.
Just as importantly these protectors provide a dust mite barrier between the mattress and the baby. Dust mites can colonise a mattress within a few months in our modern centrally heated homes, they are particularly keen on a mattress filled with man made products. These tiny creatures require moisture and a food source to survive. They live off tiny skin particles which have been broken down by bacteria. Using a SnugNights protector moisture and urine does not get to the mattress to produce the bacteria and neither do skin particles. It is very important to keep dust mites and their waste products away from our young ones as they are known to be associated with the onset of juvenile asthma and eczema. Of course no-one could recommend any form of chemical control when used close to a baby's airways so a barrier method is the safest option. PVC and plastic based protectors can also not be recommended as they can cause excess overheating and perspiration. Click here to view our range of cot mattress protectors.
