    Can anyone recommend a product please? One that's effective but not noisy when you move in the bed. I went throu a few mattress protectors before I got one that worked so recommendations would be very welcome. Thanks.

    Never knew they existed!!!
    My kids use a single duvet which I can fit into the washing machine.

    Get a spare duvet, is probably the best option.
    I have no clue if there is such a thing as a duvet protector tbh, we just have 1 spare single bed duvet between 2 of them, and a spare cot duvet for the toddler.

    The ikea waterproof ones are fantastic. Not plasticy and do a great job protecting the mattress. Have one on every bed in the house!

    I don't have a duvet protector but have used this brand's pillow protector and found them great, not noisy or crinkly so would think the duvet protector is made from the same matetial.

    They do. I didn't either when training no1. Was hoping to avoid constantly washing the duvet so thought it worth a shot as long as not too plasticky.

    I used a pull up at night and undies during the day. Until the pull up was dry at night I didn’t risk undies at night!!

    Same here.Didn't bother with nightime, just got the daytime sorted and left pull-ups at night....they eventually took off the night nappies themselves after a few months.

    Mattress protector. Just be sure to pick sizes to fit standard beds as opposed to ikea beds. They have both. Cheap as chips as well

    Unless you bought 2 single waterproof protectors and sewed them together and left gap to get duvet out?
    I think I only paid €7 for mattress
    protector in Penney’s they are absolutely brilliant.

    I wouldn’t bother with duvet protector tbh the cost of them you would have bought 5 duvets!!!!

    My MiL said that she used sleeping bags. The synthetic fibres dry quickly enough that she could wash it in the morning and it was ready to go back on the bed that night.
