Our famous Hippychick waterproof bed protectors help protect your mattresses from little and big accidents. They have been best sellers for many many years.  Every parents should have one (or two actually!)  Watch our demo video (link above) to see how we used them and why we think they are so fabulous!

Hippychick bed protectors are a great natural alternative to sweaty plastic undersheets. The fabric is warm, soft, absorbent, waterproof, breathable, non-slip, washable to 60 degrees and tumble dryer safe. They also help provide an anti allergy barrier to protect against dustmites. Both sides are made of pure brushed cotton so you can use them either side and the waterproof layer is bonded inside.

Liegelind mats are Oeko-Tex standard 100 certificated (Class 1 - especially for babies).They are perfect for protecting children`s beds and a great help in caring for incontinence.

outer layers: 100% cotton
inner core: 100% polyurethane

Sizes
Change Mat/Pram 50x75cm
Cot Bed Protector 75x100cm
Large Bed Protector 100x150cm
XL Bed Protector 150x200cm

Change bags often come with a matching change pad these days. They are usually nasty little cold plastic things which you can only wipe down, not wash. They’re either the right size and bulky when folded down, or slimline when folded and a silly size when opened out. Cold surfaces tend to make babies wee and boys especially are experts at "bounce wees" which tend to `ricochet` off hard plastic surfaces.

The change mat folds down really neatly to fit in your nappy bag, but opens out to a very generous 50cm x 75cm (20” x 32”). And if it gets soiled, it goes in the wash at 60 with the nappies.

We also sell the bed protector versions, in Cot, large and extra large size and they are really comfortable, non slip and quiet to sleep on - no rustling every time you turn over! The small is generally for younger children (it is about the same size as most cot mattresses) and the larger sizes are also for teenagers or adults, who require a larger surface area to be protected. 

Incidentally, the larger mats are also fantastic to protect your mattress should your waters break during the night, and then later, once you`ve had your baby when breastfeeding in bed.

Hippychick bed protectors have replaced the Liegelind bed protectors we used to stock. Liegelind unfortunately ceased to trade in Aug 2011 and their products are no longer available. Hippychick mats are basically the same.

We've always used plastic change mats with a muslin on top to change our children so decided to try this and will never use a plastic change mat again. My son does not have a shock when lying on it, it absorbs urine really well while being easily washable and it folds down much smaller than the travel change mat while still being twice as large! I've already recommended this product to plenty of friends and will purchase another when my eldest stops wearing nappies during the night to put on his bed. Thanks so much The Nappy Lady!

I have just put this on my half of the bed to protect mattress in case my waters break in the night. Had a very comfortable night- it's so soft and breathable it's hard to believe it's completely waterproof. Haven't tried washing it yet but if that's all perfect too then I'm very impressed.

Good product, great service
Tuesday, 21 July 2015  | 

I'd read the reviews of this product before buying it and found it a little different to what I'd expected. The sheet is thicker than a normal bedsheet and as it contains a middle layer of plastic, it doesn't have the same stretchiness as a normal sheet. This makes the bed a little firmer than without it but isn't a big issue.
The main plus is that it is double sided so you can fold it up on itself for small accidents in the night and continue to use it till morning - less hassle and means you only need one if you can wash and dry it in the same day.
It's high quality though. It doesn't bunch up and stays put under a fitted sheet. A double sized one fits a double mattress perfectly.
Overall a nicer product than a cheaper versions available and worth the investment.
Great service as ever from the Nappy Lady - thanks

Moves and wrinkles up on double bed
Sunday, 12 July 2015  | 

I bought this for my double bed as, although we don't co-sleep, I often end up with 1 or both children in the bed with me in the morning. The bed protector material is soft and seems comfy to sleep on. However I have had problems with the bed protector moving about under the sheet and getting folds in it. I have to pull the protector straight every morning as it's so crinkled and uncomfy to sleep on, even with the tightest fitted sheet on top to hold it in place. My mattress is an odd size so wouldn't take one of the fitted bed protectors, but I would have preferred to get one of those instead.

Perfect for nappy free time
Wednesday, 29 October 2014  | 

I bought this as my little girl loves nappy free time and is now wanting to roll and move about. This gives her a nice big area and means any accidents are kept on the sheet with no mess getting through. It's easily washed and drys quickly and doesn't feel plasticy at all. We bought the single bed sized sheet as we can then use it on her bed in the future.

better than plastic
Friday, 27 June 2014  | 

I have 3 of these. 2 for the crib and 1 for the pram. I don't use them for nappy changing (I just put a terry nappy down on the change mat to catch little accidents). I much prefer them to plastic, only check that your mattress doesn't have a fancy airflow system as the fabric doesn't seem that breathable (just more breathable than plastic). I find newborn babies don't have big enough accidents at night to reach beyond soaking their clothes so one in this size might not be necessary.

Love these waterproof sheets. I had one at the end of my 1st pregnancy and just treated myself to a new one (previous one now on my daughters bed). Perfect for protecting your bed in case your waters go (!) and also against leaks when breastfeeding in bed! A must have in my opinion. And you dont feel like your sleeping on a bin bag!

So useful we have 3!
Saturday, 24 May 2014  | 

These are great, we use them as changing mats for our baby and as mattress protectors for our 2 year old. They do the job brilliantly on both counts and are very soft and comfortable for them to lie on. Our baby wees on them sometimes at nappy changes (as babies do!), and the reverse side is always completely dry. I highly recommend these mats!

Best mattress protector ever!
Saturday, 26 April 2014  | 

These sheets are amazing, they do not feel like waterproof sheets at all. I've got one on my bed to protect the mattress while I breast feed. It's lovely and comfy, and it's not sweaty at all. I've put the small ones in the Moses basket and pram, and my daughter sleeps really well on them. They've dealt with a number of incidents very successfully, they've been a great buy. I just wish they did them as a fitted sheet too.

After feeling paranoid my waters would break in bed I put on a regular tesco waterproof protector which crinkled and made me so hot I could barely sleep. I decided to invest in the double bed protector and it is brilliant! Its perfect on my small double (4' bed) and protects the whole thing. I don't overheat, feels just like a normal sheet and protected my brand new mattress from me spilling a whole cup of raspberry leaf tea (which, incidentally, didn't stain the protector bright red either but I did wash it immediately!).

My daughter loves her nappy free time and this is a great way for her to enjoy it wherever we are! Whether it is the livingroom, her bed, our bed or even visiting family it is so lightweight and can fold into almost nothing, will be using it later on as a matress protector when she is potty training but for now its a fab thing to have in the nappy bag and it takes up almost no room in your bag.

Monday, 14 October 2013  | 

We had looked and looked for a replacement for a German mat for a bed-wetting child. After reading the Nappy Lady reviews, I bought 3 of these mats. They arrived the next day and seemed too flimsy to be good. They are, however, absolutely excellent - soft and completely non-porous, so nothing gets through. They are very easy to wash and dry. I cannot recommend either the service or the mat highly enough.

Good but buy two!
Tuesday, 23 July 2013  | 

We're just over a month in, these change mats have been very useful. They're only thin but seem totally waterproof, wee doesn't soak through them at all.

At home we normally use them with a basic Mothercare padded mat, if you're changing on a hard surface the Hippychicks have no padding. For out and about they're fine on their own.

I would definitely advise buying a pair, our baby sometimes likes to trick us with a little 'extra' just as we've cleaned him up and the mat can get dirty quite quickly! Fine to chuck them in the wash with the nappies (the mat, not the baby!!)

This is a great product, soft and thick. Unlike the previous waterproof sheet I bought from the nappy lady this one has overlocked edges. Since I planned to cut it in half I'm a bit more nervous about doing so. It fits our king size bed perfectly, but maybe too big and heavy for our washing machine!

Totally waterproof. Great.
Sunday, 19 May 2013  | 

I now have three of these. A small one as portable changing mat, the others (bigger) used mainly for nappy-free time in carpeted areas and they've been subject to a LOT of little accidents and a lot of washes. They are still completely waterproof - liquid is instantly absorbed so there's no risk of it being paddled all over the place either. And they are really soft and like normal material, there's no crackly waterproof feel and they aren't thick or inflexible. They lose a star purely for cost. Even though they are great, they are pretty pricey. But I do recommend them for very portable change mats and also nappy-free type use.

Worth every penny
Thursday, 2 May 2013  | 

After doing battle with cheap "waterproof" mattress protectors that rustled, took forever to dry and didn't really work, I decided to buy some of these for both of my daughters' beds. We are using the cot/cotbed size on single beds in the "danger zone". They really work. They keep the mattress dry on the rare occasions they have had an accident or illness. They wash really well and can be dried in the dryer and come out the same size they went in. They are not noisy and don't make my girls all sweaty. They feel nice and soft, as the waterproof membrane is within two layers of cotton that feels almost like flannelette. They stay put under the fitted sheet and don't slide about or bunch up. They are more pricey than other brands, but you can see where the extra money went, a quality product through and through. Highly recommended.

Thursday, 14 March 2013  | 

We have got a big pile of these – they are useful for everything! Mostly used for nappy changes, they are much better than lying the baby on a towel as they contain the mess when you get a big wee everywhere! We also use them on beds – for our 4-year-old in case of night-time accidents, and also if the children are ill as if they are sick, they are again great at containing the mess. And there’s always one in the changing bag for when we’re out and about. These are a must have.
