Designed by a New Zealand Mum - Midnight Toileting Accidents no longer a headache!
I always look at this section of people’s websites to see what sort of person is selling me something. Are they a “real person”, can I trust them to deliver what they say?
Well – this is about me. (Finally I get to get a word in!!!).
My name is Diane Hurford and I grew up in New Zealand and spent many years travelling the world, including two years in beautiful Washington DC.
I came up with the idea of a Brolly Sheet when daughter Mia was sleeping in a bottom bunk bed and starting night time toilet training. Every time there was a little 'accident', I had to get Mia up so I could take off all the bedding and remake the bed. Most nights I would hit my head on the top bunk and I soon decided there had to be a better solution.
I couldn't find anything on the market that made it easier for me to get the household back to bed as soon as possible (with minimal bruising) the few options available were either too expensive, too complicated for a 2:00 am bed-change or looked too sterile.
They say that necessity is the mother of all inventions and so I created a waterproof mattress protector that my children could comfortably sleep on. When Mia (and then Lewis) had an accident it was quick to pull off and replace with another, seconds rather than minutes, and at 2:00am that makes a huge difference! Gone were the days of completely removing and remaking the whole bed, gone were the bruises from the top bunk!
Then I had a thought, children aren’t the only ones that would prefer to sleep on a cotton layer, non crinkly waterproof protector and so I made Brolly Sheets absorbent enough for adults.
After 5 years successful years in New Zealand and Australia plus two years in England Brolly Sheets is introducing Brolly Sheets to America and Canada.
I hope they help you have an easier night as they have done for over 40,000 other customers worldwide.
So that is me. A forty something Mum of two. A real person.
About the 'Brolly Sheets' Name
Many people ask how we came up with our name. In New Zealand, Australia and the UK the word Brolly is another word for umbrella. So you might say – “it is going to rain, I need to grab my brolly”. So when we were thinking about a name that would bring to mind a waterproof layer, we came up with Brolly Sheets.
