He doesn't just have accidents he spills his drinks, water, anything he gets a hold of on his bed. This has been a really great big relief in terms of keeping his bedding clean. Those mattress pads are a joke. We went to the moon, but they can't figure out we need mattresses like this. Glad I found one that didn't cost five hundred dollars from a medical company. I'm not paying for their vacation when I can't get one. I also need Amazon to make adaptive clothing that is a one piece blue jean suit to prevent clothes from being taken off. My son stretches out those flimsy outfits they make out of cotton.
