Staying dry at night is a big milestone and a skill that doesn’t always come easy. New to the UK, the Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector provides a quick solution for those inevitable night-time accidents.


The Brolly Sheets brand was established in New Zealand and Australia and has sold over 30,000 products in the last 12 months. The product was developed by mum Diane Hurford who wanted a fast solution to night-time bed-changing.

According to Brolly Sheets, at least one in 10 children in the UK has frequent night-time accidents and the Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector provides a comfortable alternative to plastic mattress protectors. The sheet is made from a soft, 100% cotton top, with a waterproof layer that protects your child’s bedding.

The Brolly Sheet comes in a range of colours (blue, pink, lime, red and white) so can match your child’s décor or tastes, with prices starting from £24.95 for a single bed version. It’s also available in a large single and king-size.

What we love

Unlike most other mattress protectors, the unique thing about a Brolly Sheet is that it is placed on top of your child’s bottom sheet. The sheet has flaps that you tuck under the mattress to keep it in place, so if your child does have an accident, all you need to do is whip it off, without having the hassle of having to change all the bedding. The waterproof panel is big enough to cover the majority of your child’s bed.

The cotton top is really nice and soft, with an absorbent middle layer and the backing is soft and noiseless backing. Result! I hate scrunchy-sounding mattress protectors!

The Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector performed well in the ‘wee test’ - i.e. me pouring water over it. And after an initial puddle, the water did soak through and the back stayed dry, so you can feel confident that if your child wets the bed, or is ill during the night, the Brolly Sheet will protect the bed. The sheet can be washed and tumble dried and you’re advised to wash it before use to aid its absorbency.

What to watch out for

My son is quite a wriggly sleeper, so the Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector did bunch up a bit. He also found it a little hot to sleep on in humid summer weather, but I’m sure it will be nice and cosy on cooler, winter nights.

At £24.95, it’s an expensive bed protector and you’ll need to buy two, so you’ve got a spare if the bed needs to be changed. However, it is a high-quality product, so I think it will last well.

Who is the Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector best for?

Parents keen to have night-time accidents cause as little disruption as possible.


MadeForMums verdict

The Brolly Sheets Waterproof Sheet Protector offers a quick and easy solution to night-time bed changes. The Brolly Sheet is comfy, waterproof and comes in a wide range of colours, However, it’s a bit hot to sleep on in summer and you’ll need to buy more than one, taking the price close to £50.
