When we moved a very small baby Olly to his cotbed at four months old, we made sure we had a mattress protector on the mattress. We had paid quite a bit of money for a decent cotbed mattress for him and didn’t want to run the risk of him soiling it with any sick, dribble or other leaks and accidents that babies and toddlers are known for. When The Little Green Sheep got in touch and offered to send us a new mattress protector for Olly’s mattress, I was delighted as we had been washing and drying the same mattress protector for the last few years and we were well in need of a new one for his bed.
The Little Green Sheep are a British brand well known for their products using organic and natural materials. We were sent the cotbed mattress protector which is made to fit the standard cotbed size, 70cm x 140cm but they also make mattress protectors for lots of other mattress sizes including the popular SnuzPod crib and Stokke mattress.
With Olly well on his way to being dry throughout the night, having a mattress protector on the bed is essential. The Little Green Sheep mattress protector lies on top of the mattress to absorb any leaks (it’s 100% waterproof) and also allows the mattress underneath and to the sides, to breath allowing air to flow freely through the mattress. Olly can get really warm throughout the night so having a product that allows the mattress underneath him to breathe is reassuring, keeping him cool and blissfully asleep.
Supersoft and breathable
We have found the protector to be super soft as it’s made from an organically grown cotton that is free from pesticides and herbicides which again is reassuring to know given how close your most precious gift is to breathing next to the protector.
We are really impressed with The Little Green Sheep mattress protector as it’s machine washable and tumble dryer safe too so it’s no wonder the mattress protector has recently won the Gold Mother and Baby Award for 2016. Parents want products that can be thrown in the washing machine and dried before bedtime and this mattress protector washes and dries really well.
A mattress protector is essential for all parents with little ones and from our experience, you can’t go wrong with a The Little Green Sheep product.
The Little Green Sheep cotbed mattress protector is priced at £29.95 and can be bought from The Little Green Sheep online.
