Priva Ultra Absorbent Waterproof Sheet Protector Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 

When my baby was teeny tiny, maybe just a few months old, I bought a thin, cheep, waterproof sheet from a department store.  My baby was having a bit of diaper leakage when we were first getting used to cloth diapers and since my baby was a preemie, it took her a while to fit into good absorbent cloth diapers.  So while we were still using a few disposables here and there, every now and then wed end up with wet sheets if her disposable leaked while she was napping. Plus every now and then she would get a bit of a diaper rash from the disposables so wed give her bum a little air and diaper free time while she slept.  The sheet that I purchased was small and thin, but at that time, my baby couldn't roll over or move around in her bed.  So I cut it in half and placed it right in the center of her crib to protect her mattress where she was always laying for her naps.  

But baby is big!  My baby is a wiggly, rambunctious toddler and shes all over the place when she sleeps so we needed something bigger, more heavy duty and more absorbent to cover her entire mattress!  So when I was presented with the opportunity to try this Priva Ultra Absorbent Waterproof Sheet Protector, I did not hesitate for a second! 

Its amazing what sort of horrors a baby crib mattress has to endure.  Not just leaky diapers, but drool, spit up, barf, spilled bottles and leaky sippy cups.  All sorts of things!  And I don't always want to be replacing the mattress so we need something of good quality to protect it!  I'm so glad we have this sheet now!!  The Priva sheet is soft, comfortable and cushions my baby while she sleeps on it while protecting my mattress at the same time. 

Below is a comparison photo to show you the quality of this sheet protector!
The sheet on the left is the thin sheet we were using before.
The sheet on the right is my new Priva sheet!
Big difference huh?

We've had some messes since we started using this protector!  Emma got sick and threw up quite a bit.  We've also had a couple of super soggy diapers but no moisture or smells have gotten through the protector so none of that mess has penetrated the mattress itself!    I think using this protector is definitely going to add more life to our crib mattress.  And its the perfect size for Miss Emma's crib mattress too so its a perfect fit!   If you're not using some sort of waterproof protector on your baby's crib, I would definitely get one of these!  You'll be glad you did!
