Soon you’ll be bringing your baby home to their new nursery for the very first time. Newborn clothing hangs in the wardrobe and the drawers are stocked with nappy-changing essentials. All that’s left to do is add some bedding to your newly-assembled cot. A blanket and a fitted sheet are all you need, not forgetting the mattress protector.

Cot bed mattress protectors

So, what to consider when it comes to choosing a cot bed mattress protector? The cot bed mattress protector you choose for your little one must be the right size, fit their mattress well and be of a high enough quality to protect your mattress and withstand frequent washing. It’s important that your cot bed mattress protector is the right size to protect the whole of the mattress, and it needs to be well fitted for safety reasons so your child doesn’t ever become trapped beneath their cot bed mattress protector. We recommend choosing a high quality cot bed mattress protector from our range of cot bed mattress protectors at Petite Amélie, so you can be sure your child’s cot bed mattress protector will withstand the frequent washing needing to clear up after any accidents and last for the years to come, before passing on your cot bed mattress protector for another child to use. Choose a Cot bed mattress protector from Petite Amélie for your peace of mind, and help your child get a great night’s sleep.

Toddler bed mattress protectors

Don’t forget that when it comes to upgrading your little one’s cot for a toddler bed, you’ll also need to upgrade their mattress protector for a toddler bed mattress protector. A toddler bed mattress protector is an essential for this next phase of their life, most likely to include potty training! In fact, you might want to stock up on a few different mattress protectors as well as some extra bedding such as:

  • Spare toddler pillows (thinner and more breathable than regular adult pillows)
  • A spare toddler duvet (lightweight and a lower tog than a regular single bed size duvet)
  • Toddler bed sized blankets (in case their duvet is being washed!)
  • A couple of extra sets of bedding - choose from our range of adorable printed designs

Tip: Choose machine washable duvets and pillows for your little one.

1.Does my baby need a cot mattress protector?

A cot mattress protector can be highly beneficial for your little one’s cot. Using a cot mattress protector will prevent you from having to replace the mattress in the event of an accident that’s hard to clean. Babies are prone to being hot and sweaty as well as dribbling, being sick and the occasional leak from their nappy onto their cot mattress protector. A cot mattress protector will keep your baby’s mattress clean and dry no matter what the incident. Our durable cot mattress protectors also have the added benefit of being able to be passed on for another child to use. This means that choosing a cot mattress protector from Petite Amélie can help safeguard the environment for your child’s future. Choose from our range of premium quality cot mattress protectors, designed to last your child through childhood.

2.How many mattress protectors do I need for my baby?

Like we said, babies are prone to having accidents in their bed, and it’s not unheard of for a baby with an upset tummy to have a particularly bad night and go through 3-4 sets of bedding. At the newborn stage too, there can be a lot of spit-up at first while your baby takes time to regulate their digestive system. We recommend having a few different mattress protectors for the rare occasions that your baby is ill.

3.How do I care for my baby’s crib mattress protector?

Follow the care instructions on the label of your crib mattress protector, washing at 40 degrees or 30 if not heavily soiled. If your baby has had an accident, you might want to rinse your crib mattress protector in the sink with cool water or use the rinse cycle on your machine before washing. Most crib mattress protectors need to be washed on a cool cycle and are not suitable for withstanding higher temperatures. This is because higher temperatures may damage the protective waterproof coating of the crib mattress protector.
