Brolly sheets or Conni bed pads
10-10-2014 15:54 #2
We use conni pads - but also have a terry waterproof mattress protector on the mattress also. The conni pads are soft enough that they can lay straight over the bottom sheet. I tend to start it just under the pillow and down as that's where our kids have tended to sleep. They hold the liquid well. Also have waterproof cover on pillow. Great for when they spew too!
Friend bought ours for us from Aldi - but it's seasonal. They have kids' patterns on them. Would recommend two as they take a while to dry.

We used both and brolly sheets hands down. They've done 3 kids and counting (we have 2). I didn't mind the conni pads but they shrunk. I like that brolly sheets can be tucked into the mattress too.
Conni sheets remind me of hospitals.

We don't have either of those but each of the kids have the Lorraine Lea Linen 'sleep easy bed mat'. They are a smallish rectangle but are awesome. They've never shift under the sheet and apparently hold two litres of liquid. I think they consultant said they are also recommended for elderly people. My second daughter had vomited in bed a few times and it's never made it past the mat.

I have brolly sheets. Dd had 1 accident and it kept the mattress dry. I like the way they feel, like cotton and not plasticy. Don't have coni sheets so can't compare .

I have Brolly sheets and would definitely recommend them. I have four of them for 3 kids. My kids also have terry top waterproof mattress protectors just in case they ever move of the Brolly sheet. I couldn't think of anything worse than a stained mattress.

Another vote for brolly sheets. Easy to rip off and chuck another one on in the middle of the night and soft and not plastic-y.

We have both. Conni are not as soft but they hold more liquid but then they also take a little longer to dry. Brolley are softer and feel more like a summer sheet. Both have extra length to tuck into the bed. Both tend to be more hot to lay on then just a plain sheet though, so may not need as many blankets on top. Would go with whichever is cheaper again.

Neither. My ds floods the bed and no over bed mat apart from a full waterproof mattress protector works for him. He thrashes around in bed - especially when he's wet the bed, so nothing stays tucked in. He will sleep through the night with a wet bed (he sleeps very heavily - hence the problem - he is nearly 8) so we use a waterproof mattress protector, waterproof pillow protectors and we just bought a fully waterproof doona protector (it's gone on his doona for the first time tonight). He had great success with a bed wetting alarm earlier this year and was dry for 2 - 3 months, but has intermittent wet beds now - last week it was 3 times in 4 days, but then he's been dry for over 7 nights now.

We have the Ikea waterproof fitted mattress protectors (single bed size). They have a terry cloth cover and polyurethane backing so they're soft and not crunchy. Fully machine washable and you can tumble dry them.
