    Default Brolly sheets or similar

    Can someone please recommend something like the Brolly sheets for bed wetting. My dd has been out of nappies since she was 22 months in the day, but can't grasp the night time thing. She sleeps so deeply she doesnt wake when she has the urge. She turns 4 in a couple of weeks, and we go overseas at the end of the year, so I'd really like her dry by then. What are the Brolly sheets like. I'm willing to pay if they are worth it.

    I have a couple of brolley sheets and think they're definitely worth it. Not only good for keeping beds dry, but I've also used them when my little ones have had vomiting bugs- makes cleaning up so much easier.
    Easy to chuck in the wash and dryer, and they don't have a "plastic-y" feel to them.
    I got a set of 2- I think you get a discount if you get more than one?

They seem to go through phases of not wetting, and heavy wetting. The dry nites are more for my sanity as washing 2 doonas and 2 brolly sheets and 2 sheets a night is just so much work when also working full time. We recently went overseas and stayed in a hotel. We took dry nites with us for the kids to wear.
    Have you seen the waterproof quilt protectors you can get? I looked tthem up last night after changing DD's wet bedding for the third night in a row, found them on special at deals direct - tontine brand I think. Im thinking of getting One of them, two brolly sheets and I noticed brolly sheets make a waterproof top sheet too, so probably a couple of them also.

    I love brolly sheets. We bought 2 when DD1 was TT at night after using other brands these were great. Some of the protectors we used were very plasticky, and also shrank when washed and put through the dryer. The brolly sheets have been used regularly for years now and are still in almost perfect condition.

    I agree with the pp about catching vomit too - they are really a fantastic product.

    I love Brolly sheets too - we got through phases of no wetting with my 5 year old and then a week or an occasional night. I always pack it when we stay elsewhere overnight as it makes her comfortable to know it doesn't matter if she wets at her cousins houses and also if she does wet I don't need to locate more sheets in the night at hotels/caravan parks etc.

    Have a look at the sleep store. They have great products. i have the 'Conni' bed pads and I am very happy with them but DS rarely wets overnight so it is never a huge issue for us. I have heard the 'hiccups' ones aren't as good as the brolly sheets. Brolly sheets do come in pretty colours too.

    You can also buy disposable bed pads - might be good for travel. Though I would be more inclined to just put her in pyjama pants/pull ups when you are away. Unfamiliar environment etc may make it more likely to have an accident. I usually put DS (4) in pullups when we travel except at Grandma's. He is always dry but it means I don't have to worry and deal with wet pyjamas etc should it happen.

    They are a bit more economical aren't they! Thing that concerns me about brolly sheets and these is that sometimes DD gets into the most bizarre positions eg at the other end of the bed and upside down! In which case neither those or brolly sheets would be any good I suppose :/
