YOU: Uh-oh. (Groggy, sitting up quickly)
HUSBAND: What? What is it? (looks down) Oh no! Not again!
YOU: (pulling the sheets off quickly)
HUSBAND: (running for towels and cleaner)
Middle of the night or wee early morning hours: Unmade bed and no place to sleep.
Even if your baby sleeps in a crib or on a mattress on the floor or in a toddler bed, no parent is immune to pee, vomit, poop, and burps during those first few years.
Fortunately, there is one solution to this dilemma that will seriously bring down the stress level in your home: Protect-A-Bed mattress covers. Protect-A-Bed is “the very first ultra thin mattress protector.” Not only will the cover protect your mattress from stain and smells, it is also easy to care for (a.k.a. machine-washable) and it will “prevent bacteria and dust mites from breeding in your pillow & mattress.”
I highly recommend the Protect-A-Bed covers. They are lightweight and they provide peace of mind. Depending on the size and style that you select, the covers run from $29.99 to $149.99. To me, that’s a small price to pay when you compare it to buying a brand new mattress (which you will have to do after only a few “leaks” or sick nights…Once that liquid seeps in, it’s in there forever. Gross, but true.).
