My 4yo DD wears pull-ups to bed, but I think it's time to give it a try putting her in undies overnight. I have absolutely no idea what I need to buy in terms of a waterproof mattress cover. Can you just buy one anywhere like Big W or something like that? Is it important to get a specific type or brand, or do cheapies work just as well? Please give me any tips you have, I don't know what I'm doing! Thanks

I'm in the same situation, I bought several off eBay, just random brands and a couple of good ones second hand, all have been really good and work fine.

I bought mine off eBay as they were a lot cheaper. Kmart do sell single size ones for about $20ea. I get the ones with the terry cloth material as I don't think I'd like sleeping on plastic covered by a sheet either. Those ones don't feel plasticy but they work! You might want to do the thing where you make the bed twice, ie protector, sheet, protector, sheet. That way you just strip off a layer rather than remaking a bed in the middle of the night.

I have a protector that I purchased at pillow talk. From memory, it wasn't the cheapest there as some of the cheaper ones were quite noisy. But I also use a brolly sheet on top of the fitted sheet. That way, if there is an accident its a much quicker fix than having to replace the entire sheets.

We use brolly sheets here. Google to find a pic. They are about the size of a cot sheet if you put it sidewards across a bed, has waterproof layers with a soft cover and has 'wings that tuck under the mattress on each side to hold in place.
You pop them over the fitted sheet than if an accident occurs its usually contained to just the brolly sheet and you can whip it off without taking the sheets off etc.
best to have 2 of them so you can pop the second one on while you wash the wet one.

Big W has a very similar version of the brolly sheets and much cheaper.
They go on top of the fitted bed sheet and have 'wings' that you tuck in to secure it. Brolly sheets come in different colours but the big w ones are just plain white.

Never knew about brolly sheets.. They would only work if your dd sleeps straight.. Mine doesnt.. He wet the bed and mainly his pillow was wet!!
We got our matress protectors from baby bunting. Make sure theg say waterproof on it. I saw some in target which looked like they were just towelling and the packet didnt say waterproof..

I bought mine from big w for like $6. Works perfect. Fits just like a fitted sheet. It has started to tear a little on the corners but not enough to effect the use. And for so cheap I don't even care lol.
