Having a child that has continence issues, can be really tricky, going through several mattresses a year, trying many protectors and even a washable mattress didn’t survive more than a couple of months, not to mention the endless washing, whilst already feeling the increased costs of living, this was massively adds to our costs each week.
We was sort of lucky to be awarded nappies, however its a very small amount supplied for each day and sadly my sons skin did not agree with them. There was no other option we could try as they only supply 1 type and so we was spending out so much money each month to find things he fitted, and he had rejected the nappies because he didn’t want to be a “baby because he is a big boy” his words.
We was rejected our request for a pull up type so he could feel more empowered and not damage his confidence, we was at a loss at how to help at night, we have tried so many things over the years.
However we was very lucky that STRM supplied us with a new mattress protector, I can honestly say it’s AMAZING quality, we have been using now for 2 nights and oh my goodness what a difference it has absorbed everything and massively reduced the amount of washing and his skin has not flared at all
Thank you so so much, you have really helped us already and we are now hopeful we can share with you in a month or two the financial savings it will make in replacements and electricity bills etc
