We bought a few of these in anticipation of potty training in a few weeks, but we ended up using them to cover our couch, our bed, and our daughter's crib during a recent stomach bug. It's a godsend! They stay in place well, absorb liquid, and wash up really well. I'm so impressed. They're an amazing value, too - much less expensive than similar products marketed directly for potty training and bed-wetting.
