I've just put this advent calendar together. Having read the reviews on Amazon I was prepared for the fact that a bit of time would be required to put the calendar together, but felt compelled to add to what has already been said.

I know that this product is very cheap, but there's a reason for this; it's no thicker than a carrier bag. It also sounds like someone scrunching up a carrier bag with any movement, which would not be good if your child isn't a very good sleeper.
Like most of the mattress protectors this has to be hand washed, although you can get a machine washable alternative at a higher price. I have had to hand wash this item a couple of times after minor leaks and it already has some small rips in it and will not see us through until my daughter is totally nappy free. I can't testify as to its ability to cope with bigger accidents as my daughter is in night time pull ups.
Item arrived really quickly. Ideal length lead (i.e. 0.5m as described) for use in the car. Very good quality with moulded plugs and lead that looks like it will last very well. Great price. Couldn't ask for more!
