You can credit us for coining the phrase “the one bed mat you’ll ever need” for Swaddies PH’s Water Absorbent Bedmat. This miracle of a cotton gauze mat can serve as a baby mattress protector, potty training aid, and even offer back protection for post-operation and elderly care. If you haven’t already, read our full review here.

They launched a new stitch-free variation recently, and we’ve put it to the test.

But first, the features

Unboxing Swaddies PH’s Stitch-Free Bed Mat

Flatter and Thinner finish

The first thing you notice with the stitch-free water-absorbent bed mat is that it’s flatter and thinner. Perfect for those who like to save on storage space.

Since it’s thinner, it’s also lightweight! We appreciate this feature the most whenever we wash them. While we’re not complaining about the regular one, having a lighter laundry load makes a whole lot of difference, especially in the duration of each wash and drying them (under the sun).

It still has the features we love

Other than the new features mentioned above, it still has the amazing features we’re fond of such as:

Non-slip guards to keep it in place.

Comfortable material

We noticed that the new material is quite rough compared to the original design, but it wasn’t such a problem. It’s still soft and cool against the skin. Something we appreciate, considering our son will be sleeping on it all the time.

The Moment of Truth: Water Pouring Test

The proof of the pudding is in the eating. In the case of Swaddies PH Water Absorbent Bedmat, however, it’s in the water pouring. In this video, we tipped some 500ml tap water in each pour. Let’s see what happens!

The Verdict

It works just as well as the original design! It absorbs so much water as you have seen on the video above. Although our kid will probably not wet it as much (we’re still potty training him), it’s reassuring to know that it can take in so much liquid and keep whatever is underneath dry.
