     Bedwetting is a normal part of child development and is unavoidable for the first few years of baby’s life. But it can pose a problem for parents who co-sleep with their children — who would want to wake up in a bed that reeks of urine?

    On our parenting community, Smart Parenting Village, a concerned mom asked for recommendations on how to deal with a wet bed. “Mommies, I need help. Nasanay na po yata ako matulog sa basa at mapanghing kama,” she wrote.

    “Baka meron kayong ma-suggest na bed protector. Gusto po kasi tanggalin ni hubby ‘yung plastic ng bagong kama na gagamitin naming kasi mainit daw po. Worry ko po na baka pumanghi lang at mabugbog sa wiwi ni baby kung tatanggalin ‘yung plastic,” she adds.

    The mat can easily be positioned on top of your bedsheet as it has non-skid rubber guards at the back to keep the mat in place. Moms love it because of the thick material (it’s made from 6 layers of cotton gauze fabric) and adorable prints.

    On the shop’s comment section, one mom observed that it was easier for her little one to practice rolling. It can double as a play mat, too, because it does not move around.
