    I heard this before someone said on a page on facebook I think. When you buy a new mattress make sure you keep the plastic sleeve it comes in and use it on your bed for a great mattress protector. She meant it for when kids are toilet training but I still think it's just as wrong

    I imagine it just didn't occur to her- no one would knowingly endanger their baby.

    Side track a bit, but if someone was doing that for a toddler.mattress for toileting reasons, why would that be wrong?

    This isn't a toddler mattress by the way, it's a bassinet mattress.

    Well, we left the plastic on dd2 matteress. Its still on there right now. I don't consider it a Sids risk in our situation because we have padded the matteress with a thick but not soft/fluffy woollen blanket and matteress underlay. Not thick enough to create a suffocation hazard either. If I just put a sheet straight over the top of the plastic then that would present a big risk. But dd2 and any other baby, toddler or child would still be able to breathe adequately should they fall asleep face down with the way we have lined the matteress. It is too difficult for her to pull the bedding off to get to the plastic for that to present a danger.

    Default I Don't Think That's Wise

    Hi,
    First, when you're potty training and need the waterproof cover, your child will be out of the bassinet, so you won't be able to use it.

    And most of all, it's plastic. It's not breathable. It's not a good thing to have plastic material and toxins near your baby. You could have a blanket in between, and there will still be leakage that you may not even smell.

    Don't take chances. Buy a waterproof cover that is toxin free. It's just not worth it.

    Good luck,
    Julia
