    Default Is a change table mattress cover necessary?

    I didn't use one with dd1 and used to wipe it down after changing as I'm a preschool teacher so it was habit. She started complaining about the cold so I brought a packet of coloured cloth nappy squares. Pack of 10 and I'd changed every day

    I only use the fitted sheet from the cot sheet sets and the flat sheets just sit in the cupboard, so now I put them over the change table mat and replace every few days.

    Another one using the old school square toweling nappies. I just chuck it in wash and I bought a dozen of them so if she chucks on it three times in one day I've got plenty.

    I use 2 terry flat nappies folded in half. One length ways (for comfort) and one horizontal at about bum position. That way if there is any leakage I can fold a flap of the terry flat over to cover it so bubs doesn't lie in poo whilst I try and clean it all up.

    I didn't need a cover. Usually she was mostly clothed on it (apart from a bare backside/legs), and when she wasn't, she'd just come from a bath so had a towel underneath her body anyway.

    I bought a pack of square toweling nappies from Target and lay them on the change table mattress/pad. That way it's not a pain to remove and wash if it gets dirty.

    My tip: fold it in half then if only a tiny bit gets dirty you can flip it over and use other side.

    I used towels, but bassinet sheets also work quite well (when they're no longer needed for a bassinet of course). I made all my own bassinet sheets out of gorgeous printed flannelette, so that's another thing u could do if u can find some cute fabric u like.

    I'd throw down a cloth nappy as needed. Unless you plan on getting heaps of covers. When your changing nappies up to 10 times a day you'll be amazed how often the cover will get dirty.
