Review and Giveaway: Protect-A-Bed CLOSED



Thank you to Protect-A-Bed for participating in the Bloggy Birthday Blowout event on Goodie Goodie Gumdrops!

Now that Nate is two, we are venturing - s-l-o-w-l-y - into the land of potty training. We are in the beginning stages, which means there are more accidents than successes. I am confident that we will get there eventually. But in the meantime, I know that clean-up is going to be a big part of my day - and night. Thankfully, I know I can count on Protect-A-Bed for those inevitable nighttime and naptime mishaps.

Protect-A-Bed is synonymous with quality bedding protection. Since 1980, Protect-A-Bed has been manufacturing premium polyurethane laminate waterproof mattress protectors and related products. These products prevent staining and protect against dust mites and bed bugs, which are major causes of asthma, allergies and eczema. Materials used in production are safe, free of harmful substances like cadmium and exceed requirements for flame resistance. Their ultimate goal is to help provide customers with a healthy, hygienic, comfortable sleep.

Did you know that protected mattresses last almost three times longer than unprotected ones? This means a covered mattress can last twenty years instead of just seven! That's why I'm proud to own the Premium Mattress Protector for our bed (read my review here!). I also had the chance recently to review a pair of their Premium Pillow Protectors (ARV $19.99).


I'll admit it: I'm a drooler. Many mornings, I wake up with a huge wet spot on my pillow. And unfortunately, there are several stains on it as a result of my overactive salivary glands. But now I can nip that problem in the bud. Protect-A-Bed Premium Pillow Protectors are soft, absorbent and breathable. Not only are they low-maintenance (machine washable) and easy to use (just slip them on and zipper them closed), but I can rest easier knowing they will protect me from allergens and bacteria. I feel so much cleaner sleeping on Protect-A-Bed products! Drool, spills and leaks? No match for us anymore! And they'll be perfect to take on vacation when you're just not sure what kind of sneaky residue exists on the hotel bedding!

Once we ditch the diapers for good, I'll definitely be purchasing a Protect-A-Bed crib protector (ARV $29.99) for Nate's new toddler bed. You just can't beat the comfort, the quality or the warranties!

BUY IT: Visit www.protectabed.com to purchase any of the bedding protectors I've mentioned or to check out the rest of their selection.

CUTE CONTEST: To celebrate their 30th Anniversary, Protect-A-Bed is hosting a "Long Live Your Mattress" Sweepstakes, in which one lucky person will win a grand prize of $30,000 cash! There will also be ten first place prizes of complete bedding protection sets valued at nearly $500!
