Product Review: Brolley Sheet
Tuesday, 1 November 2011 | Admin
As you know, I've just spent 3 days at the madness that is the Baby Show. On Friday morning, I received this text from Husband: 'Get a couple of waterproof mattress covers if you can. F's ones are knackered'.
Perfect timing! Obviously my first point of call was Amazon, but the reviews of most of the ones on there said that they were a bit crinkly and noisy. Given that no2 son is a light sleeper anyway, I thought it best to avoid them. We had used ones from Ikea but they seem to have lost their waterproof -ness, meaning a wet mattress which obviously isn't good. (Bicarbonate of soda takes out the smell, FYI...)
I always love to have a bit of a nosey around to see what's new, this time, I was right around the corner from the lovely people at Brolly Sheet. Brolley sheets fit on top of the fitted sheet, and just tuck in underneath the mattress around the sides if you understand? They're really nicely padded, with a quilted cotton top and breathable waterproof layer. Even better they can apparently hold 2 litres of water, so no more wet mattress.
They'll be quick to change in the middle of the night because they don't go under the fitted sheet and they come in a range of pretty colours - plus white of course. I was so impressed I bought 3 of them (two red and one pink for J) as they had a really good deal on at the Baby Show.
If you've got a little one who still isn't quite dry at night, I'd really recommend these - and I'll try to get in touch with Brolley sheets to see if they fancy doing some sort of a competition for us...
