Peapod Mats | Catching Life’s Messes

May 25, 2017

At one point or another, we have all experienced the glory that is our children’s bodily fluids in the most uncanny of moments. At Little Gummi this is all too familiar and amidst a baby and a potty training two year old we are as thankful as ever for Peapod Mats and their desirable glory in a bedwetting world.

Parenting is the most rewarding job I have ever had! Even during the moments of cleaning up messes or waking up to my child having wet out of his nappy (yup, we co-sleep!), there has yet to be that moment where I throw my hands in the air and say ‘nope, not doing this today’ and okay, as a stay at home momma, I definitely wish I didn’t have to do certain things on a repetitive cycle such as nasty nappies and dirty laundry but even through the grime everything seems to come together, especially when you have a product like Peapod Mats.

Made of 3 separate layers, combined together Peapod Mats are high quality, high absorbent mats that are intended to soak up life’s messes during any situation, such as nighttime bedwetting. The mats protect the bed from any sort of fluids -like those amazing fruit juices that stain everything- and do this all without any sheet or attachment to the bed. That’s right, Peapod Mats lay flat on top of the surface with a gripping material to aid in its stay, no bunching, no changing sheets and no wrapping around the mattress. We love this idea at Little Gummi, especially when it’s the middle of the night and you have a gnarly mess and little sleep.

The layers (top, middle and bottom) are of first a breathable terry cotton sewn beautifully to prevent bunching, covering the middle layer that is what catches any moisture and disperses to fulfill maximum absorbency through the polyester liner and then sandwiched together with the bottom TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) layer for waterproofing- this is what keeps that middle layer from any leakage on to the actual sheet or bed.


We have extensively put our Peapod Mat to the test and could not be happier with it. It truly soaks up all of life’s messes and even more. The fact that it lays directly on the bed means that in situations like ours of co-sleeping we can easily handle whatever it is that needs tending to and not disturb anyone in the process.
