Christmas Countdown – Day 12

As a mum of five little ones I know very well that a proper, good quality, durable mattress takes a big chunk out of your family budget, so it is not something you want to have to replace often. Adults are (usually) quite good at keeping their mattresses clean but for children that is a big ask, we all know accidents happen and there is nothing you can do to prevent them. If you have ever tried to clean, scrub and deodorize a mattress you know it ruins your mood, takes ages and after all that it never becomes 100% clean again. Here’s the good news, there is hope!

Australian mattress specialist BedGuard takes the hassle out of a wet bed with an innovative waterproof mattress range that keeps little (and big) sleepyheads comfortable, clean and dry all night long.

Designed to stop liquids, stains and odours from ruining your mattress the unique BedGuard protection layer is guaranteed to keep nasties at bay, in case of accidents just use some paper towel to remove the spill and your mattress is fresh, clean and dry again. No more sleeping on crunchy, sticky, plastic mattress protectors, no more scrubbing, no soda-treatment, no yucky yellow stains and no sneaky odours hanging around, what a fantastic time (and irritation) saver for busy parents!

Aside from repelling liquid, odours and stains BedGuard mattresses have many other great features that make them a family favourite. The anti-dust mite, anti-bacterial, bed bug resistant and flame retardant properties give parents peace of mind, they can sleep well knowing their child is safe and comfortable at all times. All BedGuard mattresses are double sided and filled with above industry standard foam density and high quality inner springs ensuring a comfortable night sleep.

BedGuard is an Australian family business and all products are designed and made right here in Australia using high quality materials. Being Australian made you can rest assured that the manufacturing process is closely monitored from start to finish to supply Aussie families with an outstanding product that they can enjoy for years. BedGuard mattresses have a life expectancy of 10 years and come with a generous 5 year guarantee.

Within the BedGuard mattress range you’ll find three different types of waterproof mattresses (Guardian Comfort, Guardian Luxury and Guardian Opulence) to suit beds of all sizes, from your baby’s cot to a large king size bed BedGuard has the whole family covered. Prices start at $198 (cot size) and delivery costs depend on your location.

Sip in style with Steely

Steely

When it comes to mealtimes our little miss Harriet is getting better by leaps and bounds. She now happily enjoys three small meals a day and her tongue tie is no longer causing any trouble, I am so glad we decided to go ahead with the procedure. She is also getting more confident with drinking from a cup and has sips of water throughout the day using this baby-friendly drink bottle by Steely:

Steely 6

The trendy Steely bottles and cups are made from strong, high-quality stainless steel making them not only stylish but safe too. Unlike many plastic bottles they are completely free from BPA and other nasties so they are the perfect healthy pick for parents who want only the best for their child and the environment (and surprisingly budget friendly!).

With Hattie’s initial feeding issues in mind we felt the Steely First Sipper (RRP $12.95, 4 months+) was a good starting point for independent drinking. The non-slip handles are the ideal size for small baby hands and the easy flow spout makes drinking a breeze, there is no super strong sucking required. I think the 250ml capacity is spot on for young babies, big enough to last the day without too many refills and small and light enough for them to hold.

Steely 5

Thanks to the durable 18/8 surgical stainless steel the water stays cool and fresh for longer and the material does not discolour or smell like plastic often does. One of my other favourite features is the ease of cleaning, the First Sipper comes apart in three separate pieces (cup, spout and ring) that can be cleaned in the dishwasher, less scrubbing for me!
