First Time Mom and Losing It: Zip and Block Anti-Allergen Crib Mattress Encased Protector

Zip and Block Anti-Allergen Crib Mattress Encased Protector

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Having family in the mattress business I have always known the importance of mattress protectors. They keep your mattress clean from any spills and stains that can void your warranty. More important, mattress covers also protect your mattress from allergens, dust mites, bed bugs and their waste.

My husband and I have a full enclosed mattress protector on both our mattress and box springs. When I was purchasing my daughter's bed I couldn't find one like that so I had to go with the mattress protector that just went over top like a fitted sheet.

I was super happy to get to review the Zip & Block mattress protector for my daughter's toddler bed. The Zip & Block is unquilted and manufactured with an outer zipper flap, an interior zipper flap and reinforced inner seams for the most effective barrier to related allergens. It is a soft knit fabric with an ultra-thin breathable polyurethrane membrane provides protection from allergen molecules of less than 1.0 micron.


It was super easy to slip on like a pillow case and zipper up. I love the nice little stretch in the fabric and the smooth feel of it. It also helps the fitted sheets go on a little easier.


You can order your own mattress Zip and Block on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  3. We have mattress protectors on all of our beds and we put pillow protectors on as well. If you can find sheets that wrap around the baby mattress as well please use them. They keep the baby from accidentally getting wrapped up in the sheets.

  4. I really need to get one for my bed. I have all kinds of allergies and this sounds like it might at least help!

  5. I like the idea that the protector is not only used for covering the bed. It is also great for preventing allergies. I so need this. I sometimes feel really uncomfortable with our bed and I suspect insects hiding beneath them :(

  6. Love, love, love mattress protectors! So gross to think of not using them once you know what you do!

  7. That is great. I am learning how sensitive my kids are to allergens. And this would be perfect.

  8. It is important. I have a five year old who still pees the bed. So because I don't believe in pull-ups at the age of five, we have a ton of fitted sheets and protectors and just layer his bed so he can take them off in the middle of the night and change after he's peed. I even recommend a waterproof pillow cover.

  9. This is a great product for kids, especially since its anti-allergenic. I don't know anybody with young children, but its a good product to keep in mind!

  10. My wife searched high and low for this when my kids were in cribs.. This would have worked good..

    ReplyDelete
  11. I didn't even know they made fully enclosed ones like this. That's absolutely the way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  12. That is such a great idea. Then you can wash it to get rid of the allergens present too.

  13. Everyone needs a cover for their mattress, though this looks like it would be a lot easier to put on the mattress; I really like how it zips up instead.

  14. I need to find a great mattress cover like this one! I am allergic to EVERYTHING! Because of my autoimmune disease not only can't I fight off germs but apparently I can't fight off allergens either. I have bought 2 mattress covers and ended up being allergic to both of them and had to take them back off! These might actually do the trick!

  17. My kids are grown up, but I we had mattress protectors back in the day before they were popular. Allergens and germs can really mess with a babies immune system. Looks like a great product! Don Purdum

  20. Mattress protectors are the BEST!! I love this one and the zipper! Super awesome!! Thank you for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  21. wow! This is exactly what we need! My son wets the bed often and I always get paranoid about bed bugs. Not that his bed has any but that it might be possible. So this is great!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think mattress protectors are wonderful because you can wash them. I like the zipper because for some reason nothing wants to go back in the way it came out when I try it lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. Awesome we recently purchased on for the baby so we can protect the mattress not only from bedbug and mites but water too

  33. This is indeed a great mattress product and why they are only available for cribs, can't we also have them on our big bed ?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have the ones that are like fitted sheets. They are very easy to put on and off to be cleaned.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That looks like a must have product for any bed. I love the idea that it helps keep the dust mites and bed bugs out as well as being waterproof. It looks super soft and easy to put on. Nice product overall.

  36. We used these with my daughters crib and loved them. It really is an important product. We also have other mattress covers on the other beds too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a great idea. There are so many allergens that can be found in mattresses. This is a great way to eliminate exposure to our little ones.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This definitely something I need to look into for our twins. They seem to be stuffed up a lot lately and I wonder if it's already allergies.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've never heard of mattress protectors. Aren't the mattresses inherently water repellant?

    ReplyDelete

  45. These are amazing. I have a larger case for my bed and it really helps to cut down on my allergies.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is an extraordinary item for children, particularly since its hostile to allergenic. I don't know anyone with adolescent youngsters, however its a decent item to remember!
