No, we've haven't had a surprise bundle of joy (much to Miss Grace's chagrin, she has decided we need a baby (course she just wants the sibling, I get the 3 am feedings and dirty diapers, LOL)
But we do have a bestie, Stephanie, that has a 6 month old, who is our 'group baby' (you know that you can hold when the "I wanna another baby feelings' hit, but you can give BACK when they pass?), and she's my co-writer over on Poodlesocks 101 (our Irish Dancing blog that we're working on as we can) and she's become out resident 'baby stuff' reviewer!
If there is one thing all moms can agree that is needed in a baby layette, is a durable, comfortable, WATERPROOF crib mattress pad! Because 3 am is no time to be having to worry about a soaked mattress with a tired baby!
But finding THE perfect pad is usually an exercise in settling for 'ok, but not perfect'. So we were thrilled when the opportunity came up to review a new pad from Universal Comfy, Stephanie was more than ready to give it a try!
This new Universal Mattress Pad Protector is 100% waterproof, made from high absorbency bamboo, providing perfect protection for your expensive mattress. It is covered in a quilted, padded, soft bamboo viscose fiber, terry cloth cover, for a luxuriously silky soft top, that breathes, while remaining odor free!
The Mattress Pad is super easy to use- it slips on your mattress just like a fitted sheet (it is standard sized at 28 inches wide x 52 inches long x 6 inches high (skirt). Then your sheet goes on over it and stays put too! Because it is lead, latex, phthalate, pvc and bpa free, with no chemicals, or flammable materials, are used to make it, so you can lay your baby on it directly if you have to, and not worried! It's also a great relief if you are trying to change to a 'clean' home without chemicals, like Stephanie is. This also means the mattress pad is perfect for babies with sensitive skin.
You baby's body temperature is regulated through its special micro gap technology that helps to keep your baby warm on cool nights and cool on hotter nights! And a comfy baby is a sleeping baby! Stephanie and baby are SO happy with the mattress pad, keeping her baby' temperature constant, that she is looking to find the same type for her toddler's bed as well! She also recommends a second mattress protector, for those 3am blow outs/flu bugs, when you may want to wait to wash later in the am, and need to put another one on. Add them to your baby registry as a MUST have item she advises!
But more important is the NO NOISE factor! because the mattress pad is made from natural materials, there is no 'plasticy' rustling sound when your baby moves around, to wake them up! WHEW- that means YOU get to sleep longer! And yes, it works BETTER than traditional mattress covers, in keeping your mattress DRY, even with heavy soakings! Which also means baby sleeps longer! Stephanie is adamant that this cover is what is helping her baby to sleep longer at night!
Cleaning is just as easy as putting the Mattress Pad cover on your Crib mattress- just remove and machine wash according to the instructions. You can wash it safely again and again, with no damaging to the absorbent material.
Because the mattress pad is made from natural materials it also helps prevent bacteria, dust mites and mold from breeding in your baby's mattress! It is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, hypoallergenic, and can repel bed bugs. Something else to help YOU breathe easier!
Universal Comfy also offers a 100% money back LIFETIME guarantee, so you can feel even better about what a great product this mattress protector is!
