You guys, I am so excited about this!

Yippee! Sheets are a new line of Canadian-made, stylish waterproof protection designed specifically for toilet training and bed-wetting.

Creator Nicole Maunder (sister of local film-maker Roger Maunder) is originally from St. John's, but now lives in Toronto with her two young boys. Nicole created her newly-launched line of sheet protectors after dealing with several "accidents" when toilet training her sons. Recalling how frustrating it was to wake up in the middle of the night and have to change all the bedding, she thought that there had to be a faster and easier way.

Cleaning up messes is an inevitable part of life as a parent, and may be even more-so for parents of children with special needs. Bed-wetting is a frustrating, yet extremely common problem for our little ones. For many, the issue continues into adulthood, making life very stressful for parents and caregivers.

I was excited to hear about this new line of Yippee! Sheets, and was anxious to try one on Brennen's bed. I love that unlike most sheet protectors on the market, the Yippee! Sheet is soft and cozy and goes on top of the bottom sheet, not under it, which means it is the only thing that needs to be washed!  If there is a leak or accident, simply pull it off the bed, throw it in the washer and reuse it over and over!

Another feature of the Yippee! Sheet is that it is silent! The bottom layer is waterproof, but not made of vinyl or PVC, which means that it doesn't make that noisy crinkling sound, making for a healthier, more restful sleep.

As parents of children with special needs would agree, our time is already stretched to the max, and every minute is valuable. Anything that can help decrease the amount of laundry and minimize our level of frustration is a win-win! In the short time that we've been using the Yippee! Sheets, it's been a huge time-saver and stress-reducer. I highly recommend them to anyone dealing with nighttime messes.

We have the green and white "Waterproof One-Size Bed Sheet Protector without Tuck-In Flaps". It's also available with tuck-in flaps, for people who move around a lot while sleeping. (It's hilarious how excited I am about this!!) These sheets are beautifully made with great attention to detail and a range of colours and patterns to choose from.

Check their website for the full line of waterproof products, including bed sheet protectors, and car seat, stroller and chair protectors, which would work great on wheelchairs as well!

Thanks, Nicole. You are one smart Mom!!
