Bed Wetting Issues?–DIY Mattress Cover

Bed wetting can be a challenge. Some of our children will simply not outgrow this.   We have tried many things to keep  the mattress dry throughout the night.  I bought several different diapers and they all leak to some degree. I have also tried many different mattress covers, all of which our son has ripped apart.

Last year, we bought a new mattress.  The plastic covering that came on it was perfect!  Finally, something durable that Tristan was not ripping off.  Unfortunately the plastic cover only lasted so long.  The other day I had an idea.  I purchased a thick shower curtain, draped it over the mattress, and duct taped it on the under side.  Viola!  It has been highly effective.
