8 Best Waterproof Bed Wet Protection in 2024

Last Updated on September 1, 2023 by Lori Pace

While accidents (welp, your child “accidentally wet” the bed), and spillages can happen, permanent stains can form on your mattress. Mattresses are notoriously difficult to clean. Hence, waterproof mattress protectors (or “bed wet” protection) can be a great way of protecting your mattress from getting stained or dirty. They repel liquids and keep them from getting into your mattress. 

Mattress protectors are easy to remove and wash machines. Even if your child has an accident or you spill a glass of wine on your mattress, they will keep it in great condition. Protecting your mattress from everyday wear, insects, and allergens with waterproof mattress protectors will prolong its life. On the other hand, the wet bed can hinder a good sleep for you, and more important, your baby’s!

Core Mattress "Bed Wet" Protection

Mattress protectors can be hot and make you uncomfortable. A cooling mattress protector is an excellent choice if you need the protection of a waterproof protector, but don’t want to sweat. SlumberCloud is a well-known brand for its cooling sheet. This heats up throughout the night to maintain a comfortable temperature. It’s more expensive than other options but we believe the cooling effect is well worth it. We also liked how it was washable as a bed wet protection.

Maximum Mattress Protector

AllerEase’s mattress protector can be sized to fit mattresses up 17 inches in depth. It was waterproof (bed wet protection, especially for kids) in all our Lab tests. The brand also claims that it protects against dust mites, bed bugs and other allergens. The zipper has a velcro covering that prevents bed bugs from getting in through the zipper opening. We found the protective material to have a plastic-like feel and it can make some noises when they move around in bed.

Organic Cotton “Bed Wet” Protection

A well-fitted, absorbent diaper is the best protection against leaks. A mattress protector is a great option for cleaning up any spillages, such as spit-up, accidents, or other mishaps. My Green Mattress offers a variety of sizes including a crib-size protector. It’s also made from organic cotton that is GOTS certified. It did shrink slightly after washing, but it was not leaky in our lab testing. Consumer testers loved the protector for their beds. They said it made no noise and was invisible under their sheets.

Organic Waterproof Mattress Protector

Some other waterproof cotton mattress protectors are made from a woven cotton canvas material, which can feel rough to the touch. Its unique design, with a knit jersey lining both the protector’s sides and the waterproof material concealed between layers, made it the most comfortable protector we tested. The top layer of cotton absorbed liquids, but the inner layer kept moisture from seeping into the back.

Premium Mattress “Bed Wet” Protection

The adjustable pillow was awarded the title “best overall” by our pillow tests . The protector is fitted on the bed as a sheet, so it can be removed easily if there are any spillages or bedwetting. The waterproof backing was quiet when we crinkled it in our tests, and the plush top layer was appreciated by analysts. 

Thanks to the addition of rayon fibers, the protector is breathable and cool. This pick passed all of our lab tests and showed little shrinkage. It also passed our water-repellency tests without any water seeping through the top layer to its back.

Premium Waterproof Mattress Protector

This mattress protector has received over 170,000 5-star ratings. It has kept many beds safe from accidental spills or leaks. The SafeRest mattress protector fits like a fitted sheet. The protector’s top is covered with terry cloth fabric that absorbs moisture. Your mattress will stay dry thanks to the waterproof underlayer. Some reviewers noted that the protector can become hot while they sleep. GH pros have tested it in their homes and can confirm that it blocks spills and is well washed.

Waterproof Mattress Protector

The elastic is protected by a silicone band to prevent it from shifting. Although the cotton upper has a “bed wet” protection barrier, it is quiet enough to make you feel comfortable while you are settling into bed. It showed less shrinkage after washing than other cotton options.

ZipFit Cooling Mattress “Bed Wet” Protection

Protect your mattress with an encasement protector that covers the entire mattress and has a zipper for maximum protection. The protector is made from Pillow Cube’s cool-to-the-touch material, which was also used in its top-tested cooling side sleeping pillow. The best thing about this protector is its ability to zip off the top for easy cleaning. 

This means that you won’t need to lift your mattress and remove the whole protector each time there’s an accident. In our tests, the protector was silent. Analysts recommend that you wash the protector with the top panel unzipped and separate to prevent water pooling.
