Accessory Review Sealy Crib Mattress Pad & Protector Review

One thing that my husband and I both can’t stress enough is how important a mattress protector is, whether it’s for a bed or a crib. A protector will make your life so much easier and keep the mattress so much cleaner and sanitary. Even most mattress manufacturers won’t honor a warranty if the mattress has any stains. For me, as a Mother, it’s mostly about what makes my life easier and keeps things clean for my baby. Even in a few months I have had a handful of times that between Lily getting sick or having a major diaper fiasco while in her crib that I have had to strip down the bed and remake as quickly as possible so she could get back to sleep. Having to not worry about the mattress getting dirty and trying to clean it is beyond reason to always have a protector. This Sealy Protection Crib Mattress Pad is not only a good protector but is about ¼” thick and adds a little bit of an extra layer of cushion.

Durability

This protector is a quilted 100% waterproof protector that is designed exactly like a fitted sheet for a standard size crib mattress and meant to go directly under the fitted sheet. It has five sides of the exact same cotton/poly blend material that fits even deeper pocketed crib mattresses with a strong, elastic band around the entire perimeter. It is machine washable and is even hypoallergenic.

I was pleasantly surprised with this protector. I had initially registered for a different Sealy protector and had received this one instead and really ended up liking this one just as much. The added quilt cushion and soft cover make it feel less like a protector and more like a pad, even though it has kept my mattress 100% free of any stains, liquids and debris. It’s been washed several times and comes out looking like it did the first time. It has proven to be durable and does exactly what it is suppose to.

Value

The Sealy crib mattress protector/pad comes in right around $15 to $20, depending on where you purchase it. This price is about where the average crib protector falls, even a little less than. I would recommend having at least two; even three just in case, so having a protector that isn’t overly expensive but gets the job done is great. Considering this also doubles as a pad the price is even more appealing and well worth the investment of keeping the mattress clean and the ease of changing the sheets and protector at a moment’s notice a breeze.

Overall

This protector has been a great addition to Lily’s crib set-up and works great as an added cushion between her mattress and sheet as well as keeping her bed clean and free of stains. The amount of accidents and spills when it comes to babies is never ending and having something as simple as a protector on the crib mattress is key in keeping it safe and sanitary as well as Mom and Dad’s job a little easier. I would recommend this Sealy Protection Crib Mattress Pad for this purpose.
