Bedwetting is common in young children, particularly when teaching them to stay dry at night. In the UK, it’s estimated that about: 1 in 12 children wet the bed regularly (at least twice a week) at four and a half years old. In order to help your child stay dry during the night, the NHS suggests “…Focus on getting your child potty trained during the day before you start leaving their nappy off at night. If your child’s nappy is dry or only slightly damp when your child wakes for a few mornings in a row, they may be ready for night time potty training. Ask your child to use the potty last thing before they go to bed and make sure it’s close by, so they can use it if they need to wee in the night. There are bound to be a few accidents, so a waterproof sheet to protect your child’s mattress is a good idea…” Our ComfortCare Toilet Training Sleep Mat’ is a washable, reusable absorbent bed mat, which will protect the mattress from all forms of liquid. The top layer is made from fabric which allows liquids to quickly pass through and keep your child dry. The liquid is then locked away in the middle layers and the waterproof and breathable polyurethane backing prevents penetration of the liquid to the mattress. Cost-effective and reliable, this product aims to offer your child comfort, confidence and help to promote independence. The mat has been designed for long term use and can be washed and re-used many times, in fact, the rate of absorbency will increase after the first few washes. The ComfortCare Toilet Training Sleep Mat can be washed at temperatures up to 95 deg. C and it is suitable for tumble drying. The mat has wings which will allow you tuck it in under the mattress, to ensure that when your child wriggles in bed it will stay firmly in place. The top layer is quilted, soft and silent to ensure that it does not disturb your child’s sleep.
