The Little Green Sheep Organic Cot Mattress Protector Review
The Little Green Sheep is a lovely company that focuses on creating the very best baby bedtime products using natural and organic materials. They make mattresses for babies and children, beautiful bedding, sheepskins and the amazing SnüzPod bedside crib that’s been on my baby wish list since the moment I saw it.
Back when we first bought an IKEA cot for our first baby, we bought a mattress protector too but never used it in her cot because it was just not very soft and felt very synthetic. This one from The Little Green Sheep is pretty much the opposite!
It’s a super soft mattress protector made from breathable and extra absorbent luxury cotton. The quality is amazing and the mattress protector is thick but flat and there’s no crinkling or crunching. The natural cotton that it’s made from is 100% unbleached and organically grown.
It’s truly a beautiful product. What other mattress protectors come delivered wrapped in tissue paper with little hearts on in a lovely gift box? I’ve never seen any before. It makes the product feel even more special and luxurious and also makes it a perfect new baby or Christening gift.
Using a mattress protector like this one will help prolong the life of your mattress as it keeps it dry and clean for longer. Having a 100% waterproof and absorbent The Little Green Sheep Organic Cot Mattress Protector in your baby’s cot will also help create a dry and safe sleep environment for your baby as it absorbs any drool, spillages or leaks and can easily and quickly be machine washed and tumble dried at home.
This mattress protector consists of two layers of organic, Oko-Tex 100 certified cotton with one layer of safe, food grade polyurethane — as used in baby bottles and dummies. It absorbs any moisture and wetness instead of letting it pool on the surface which will keep your baby dry.
If you’re pregnant and buying yours before your baby is born, you can also use it on your own bed to protect it in case your waters break at night. This will help you sleep better as you don’t need to worry about ruining your mattress.
We have the mattress protector in size 60x120cm which fits our standard cot perfectly. It’s available in lots of different sizes if your cot is a different size or if you have a Moses basket, crib or mini crib. It’s also available for single beds and there’s an option for SnüzPods too.
The mattress protector is flat and not fitted because this lets your mattress breathe from the sides and the bottom and it also provides a barrier against dust mites which is helpful for children with allergies.
You don’t need to worry about it moving around though — The Little Green Sheep Organic Cot Mattress Protector still stays in place and doesn’t crease. My toddler daughter is a wild sleeper (like her mother…) and moves around loads at night and her mattress protector is staying put, keeping her and her mattress nice and dry.
The Lullaby Trust and The Little Green Sheep work together to promote safer sleep for all babies and this brilliant product has won the ‘Best Nursery Bedding’ award in the in Loved by Parents awards and the GOLD Mother & Baby Award 2016 for ‘Best Sleep Product’.
