GoodNites Bed Mats: 2013 Product of the Year, Children's Products

The GoodNites brand has been providing trusted bedwetting solutions for more than 17 years. The revolutionary GoodNites Bed Mats, which received tens of thousands of votes from American shoppers, are the latest innovation to address this condition and make life easier for moms and children.

"The GoodNites Bed Mats product was inspired by feedback we received from parents who wanted an alternative to disposable garments," said Jen Wilder, GoodNites brand director at Kimberly-Clark. "To have Bed Mats recognized and endorsed by American consumers and Product of the Year USA only reinforces how much we value the product, and more importantly, the positive impact it makes in providing a better night's rest for parent and child."

The GoodNites Bed Mats Solution

Between 5 to 7 million children ages four and older suffer from the medical condition known as nocturnal enuresis, or bedwetting.[1] Some children prefer not to wear disposable garments, making Bed Mats another option to help manage their condition. This one-of-a-kind, super absorbent, cloth-like disposable mat can be easily secured on top of bed sheets, allowing children to better manage bedwetting and ensuring a good night's sleep for the whole family.   

GoodNites Bed Mats are available for purchase in most leading grocery stores, mass merchandisers, drug stores and select online retailers. The suggested retail price for GoodNites Bed Mats Jumbo Pack is approximately $10. Consumers can visit to learn more about Bed Mats and sign up to take the Better Night Test.
