So let’s kick this thing off with an organic Mattress Protector Pad from Naturepedic! If you win, you can take your pick of size (twin, full or queen) and opt in or out on the waterproof front. We’ve got the waterproof one on Kaspar’s bed (his bed is in our room, and I sleep in it with him, but… it’s still ‘his’ bed. That’s the idea, anyway). It gives him a nice, non-sweaty night’s sleep that vinyl and rubber pads won’t, and provides extra layers of organic materials between his skin/airways (he sleeps face-down, butt-up… love that) and his mattress. It also blocks dust mites and other allergens. And pee. Which is the focus of this fine giveaway series.
By the way, I have not been paid to pimp this product. Naturepedic sent me a pad so I could give it a dry (make that wet) run; I wouldn’t want to give you something lame and be a morale party pooper (you caught that, right? Pooper?). And I am, officially, a fan. The pad you get will be new, though. Not the one Kaspar's peed on. Just want to be sure we're clear.
I want to mention, too, that this is a really-actually green product, and not just greenwashed for marketing. Gotta watch out for that. The pad is free of Pthalates, Vinyl, PVC, and Latex, and is Greenguard certified. Let’s hear it for companies caring about our kids, with an extra encore for Naturepedic for hooking you up with one of these puppies. If you win the giveaway, that is.
You want to win? Here’s how it’s done: leave a comment below with a potty training tip, anecdote, worst fear, best success… whatever goes pee in the night. Anything on-topic will do. I’ll have Aaron pick one of your names from a hat on Friday, September 9, and announce the lucky winner in the comments section, too. Don’t forget to put your email address in the comments form (it won’t be published) so that I can get in touch with you behind-the-scenes on all of the specifics (size request, etc.).
