John Lewis Baby Cot/Cotbed Waterproof Fitted Sheet
Keeps things dry
Well what can you say for a waterproof sheet? Not a lot I thought but I was so amazed at the waterproof qualities of this waterproof sheet that I feel compelled to share my findings.
The sheet fitted the mattress withe ease, the elasticated corners are lovely and stretchy and fit snugly on each of the 4 corners of the mattress.
Once fitted I wanted to test the waterproof qualities in a controlled environment to ensure no water penetrative took place in the depths of the night.
I liberally 'watered' on the covered mattress until I was all out of liquid and it was throughly soaked. I then left it a good hour or so and went and did other things.
Upon my return it was evident that I'd suitably soiled the sheet but upon its removal the mattress was bone dry - result.
We now use this on a regular basis and it seems to take a good beating in terms of soiling and still give excellent protection to the mattress.
I'd wholeheartedly recommend this product

a must have
Great for when you are trying to get your child dry through the night. i reasonable price and you can wipe off most the wet so you dont need to change it whwn the sheet is wet.

Just a plastic sheet with jersey around the edge, I'll be taking mine back as its not cosy at all for my 6mth old. Could be used but you would have to purchase a plain matress cover to go over top to make it comfortable to sleep on. I had purchased a nice one from JL which was terry toweling with plastic backing but can't find it on the website.

Just a plastic sheet really
I do not recommend this product and will be returning it. It is just a plastic panel which does not even fit to each side of the mattress so if your baby moves around this could result in a wet mattress - which is what I would be trying to prevent!
Previously I bought a John Lewis one which has a terry towelling layer which is lovely and soft but with the waterproof bit underneath. I can't find this on the website hence buying this.
It will make your baby hot and sweaty without a doubt and the only way to prevent this is to buy another sheet to put on top.

It is good quality- but isn't quite as nice as the ones they have in store...
This cot/cotbed waterproof fitted sheet fits the mattress perfectly and is well made, good quality and seems to be hard wearing too. However the waterproof part has a more 'plastic' feel to it and the sheeting cover is less 'cosy' feeling than the ones I have previously bought in store. Those ones hardly felt as though my children were sleeping on waterproof sheets at all (although, boy do they work when an accident occurs!). This one however does have that slight 'waterproof sheet crinkle' to it when my son gets into bed, and it does cause a bit of sweating on a hot night.
It's undoubtedly very useful and does the job, but I was a little disappointed. That said, it is still miles better than any waterproof sheets I have looked at from any other shop or company.

Quite useful but not perfect
It does fold nicely over the mattress without the annoying "bubbles" that other protective sheets have.
However, top and bottom are just a net and not waterproof - I imagine there must be a safety feature? Unfortunately, it does seem that my baby always gets attracted to the bits that are not waterproof - resulting in wet mattresses most of the time...
So I would say the product is especially useful for babies that do not move too much at night, but if you have a especially active toddler that likes to rest at the corners of the cot, it does not really solve the whole problem

It fits well and does the job! No problem washing it either.

Reasonably priced & excellent value for money.
I bought two of these as they were very reasonably priced in comparison with other retailers.
They fit over the entire mattress, ensuring it is all protected & wash & dry really well ~ no shrinkage, which I was worried about!
I really cannot think of any negatives!
Overall, an excellent buy as they do the job & aren't as expensive as other stores.
