When Keira first potty trained I was so excited to get one child out of nappies. Once Keira got the hang of using the potty (I wrote all about it here) I knew it would soon be time to monitor her night time toilet antics. I noticed that Keira was able to nap, without a nappy, and not have an accident. So I started checking her nappy as soon as she woke up in the mornings. 5 out of 7 would be bone dry, so we tried her without a nappy. Keira done splendid for a week and then the accidents started so we bought some bed mats but she must have been doing huge wee’s and was leaking through them!
Eventually we reverted back to nappies for bed to save her bedding. That’s when I was given the opportunity to try and review the MoliNea Underpads from Hartmann Direct. They are a company that specialises in products for continence care. They supply products to a lot of hospitals and chemists as well as nursing homes.
It was the perfect solution.
We were supplied with three 60x90cm pads and placed them under the sheet of Keira’s bed. Given Keira had had accidents in the past I knew we needed something large to help cover and protect the mattress. These underpads were the perfect size to cover just what we needed. We tucked Keira up into bed, read her a story and off she went to sleep.
We were woken in the morning to the cries of Keira as she had had an accident. So I left Darren to help clean her up while I checked the underpads and Keira’s bedding. I was pleasantly surprised.
The mattress was completely dry, nothing had leaked at all. I was simply amazed. The underpad had soaked up the lot. I couldn’t believe that the bed was dry. The underpad was so easy to dispose of, I just needed to roll it up (or you could fold it up if you really wanted to) and pop it in the bin. Simple.
I can see why these underpads are widely used across the country, they offer complete protection for your mattress without the worry of anything leaking out and I would definitely recommend them to other parents for their toddlers during their night time toilet training.
You can find out more about the company and their products by visiting the Hartmann Direct website, where you can also purchase their MoliNea Underpads.
