This white Mattress Protector is the ideal way to ensure your little cherub gets the soundest night's sleep. The mattress protector fits securely over the cot bed's existing mattress to add a softer layer, making baby more comfortable at night. The mattress protector can also be removed and washed if there are any little accidents for the perfect blend of comfort and convenience.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Ruth: I would recommend this product to a fellow mum because it's easy to wash and dry and fits the mattress really well. It is also very soft and completely waterproof. It's nice that it isn't noisy under his sheet. It folds up nice and small so that its easy to keep and put it away in the drawers.

Samantha: Yes, definitely. I would even say its an essential purchase. It can save you a lot of time and money by not having to replace the whole mattress if there are any accidents. I think it feels really comfortable too. It was so easy to fit and the fit is very tight so you know nothing should get through.

Anneli: If you have a baby prone to accidents, this is an ideal way to help them through the night without too much disturbance. You can simply change the covers rather than the zip up mattress cover. It is quicker and far less hassle. The size and material are nice. It fits the mattress completely without being tight. Waterproof covers can make your baby hotter due to the plastic layer, however, I don't think this is a major problem with this cover. The price is good and I feel the quality of the product is pretty good.

How did this product make your life easier?

Ashley: This mattress protector makes life easier for any parent. You know that at night time if a nappy leaks or your child is ill, the mattress is protected and you can change the sheets without putting them back into a wet bed. It has a nice soft topping and the whole mattress protector can be put into the washing machine.

Laura: The value for money is amazing. The protector makes my life easier in the sense that if an accident occurs, the mattress would be well protected. Unfortunately, this wasn't the best item to test during hot weather. In hot weather, it made mattress less breathable and I found the baby sweated more than usual.

Siobhan: I have never used a mattress protector before this. I used this product and I am really pleased I did. My son has just got to an age where he pulls his nappy off or plays with it which obviously results in a messy bed. By using the mattress protector I have been able to whip all the bedding off to wash it appropriately.

Would you choose this product to win?

Holly: The price is cheaper than others I have used in the past. I really like the terry towelling feel to it as my previous one was just plastic. This one doesn't rustle which I love as anything wakes up our son!

Nicola: I would choose this cotbed mattress protector over others currently on the market mainly for the affordable cost. It is a bargain! As well as this, the protector fits very well over our cotbed mattress. My first protector wasn't a great fit and I can really tell a difference when fitting this one. It washes well, is comfortable enough for my baby and if it did become damaged it is cheap enough to buy a new one without breaking the bank. Well done George Home!

Ruth: I would definitely choose this mattress protector above all others on the market because of the value for money. It is really cheap considering the quality of the mattress protector. I think it should win because it does exactly what it says on the tin and it's very soft to touch. All for only £6...perfect!

What changes would you make to this product?

Samantha: Nothing really comes to mind for changes. Perhaps they could offer it in a different colour. Although this would only be a cosmetic change. I haven't washed it yet so I can't comment on that. The fit was really good and the material felt a high quality and so far there has been no damage to the mattress.

Anneli: You could make the packaging slightly nicer or make the fit a bit tighter as the sides are a little baggy. I like the towelling finish and it seems to wash well. You could offer different colour options so it matched with the fitted sheet on top. I'm stretching to find suggestions as to something to change with the design.

Ashley: If I could change one thing about this mattress protector it would be the fit. On the packaging, it states it is for a cot or cot bed. We have a cot bed and I hoped it would be a nice snug fit but it seems very loose. You don't want it to move around when being used in case it makes noise or makes bulges in the bed.
