Mattress Protector by The Little Green Sheep (Review)

By 1/29/2016 , , ,

A few weeks ago, we experienced our first middle of the night bath. What's a middle of the night bath? Ha! Seriously though, if you don't know what it is, and you're a parent, then you are either really lucky or just as ignorant to the possibility that one sleeping angel could make such a huge mess in their sleep.

Isla was sleeping peacefully and as I stroked her head goodnight on my way up to bed myself, I felt something sticky and smelt that smell that no-one wants to smell. She'd thrown up everywhere. Not just a wet wipe job, a full blown SURPRISE!!! IT'S BATH TIME!!!

It was completely perfect timing that after this, I was sent this Organic Cotton Mattress Protector by the Little Sheep Company.

First off, I have to say this is the best packaged bedding accessory I have ever seen!

 On opening, I literally couldn't believe how soft the protector itself was. I know from pregnancy that mattress protectors are normally crinkly and uncomfortable (hence why I didn't have it on the bed the night my waters broke, ha.) so I've never bothered getting one despite Isla sleeping on her dribbly face and getting her nice expensive mattress moist every night.

On top of how it feels, it's made of pure organically grown cotton- perfect for soft baby skin. On top of that, there is no bleach used so the colour itself is all natural as well. 

It's designed to prevent dust mites and be breathable, which in our case is great as Isla has had some horrible chesty coughs and needed an inhaler- so anything to stop her night wheeze or aid it is a household win!

A perfect fit with breathable edges to let air underneath!

I've been keeping an eye on the mattress itself; normally there's a slight damp patch where Isla dribbles (she's teething again!) and as of yet the protector has held it's own and been 100% absorbent!

Fingers crossed that if in future we do have any more surprise midnight bath parties, the mattress will be nice and dry and unstained thanks to our new mattress protector. (I've just flipped it over for the last least this side will be clean now!)

If you're interested, you can find all different sizes to suit any baby bed/cot here. They also have a whole range of other sleep accessories.

This product won Best Sleep Product for 2016 in the Mother & Baby awards so you know it's worth it!

Have you had to do the midnight bath? Have you tried any Little Green Sheep products? Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. I wish my wife and I had known about this cotton mattress protector when our daughter was a baby. Like you, we found mattress protectors too stiff for our baby, and so, we ended up having to buy another mattress for our girl's crib. Isn't it amazing how much of a mess one tiny baby can make?
