    Default Bassinet mattress - gap

    We were trying our baby monitor today & when we put the sensor pad under the bassinet mattress it has caused that end of the mattress to sit up a little which has now created a gap thats about 20mm wide between the mattress & the end of the bassinet (mattress protector is on but no sheets). The mattress fitted perfectly before.

    Do we now need to buy another mattress? Id really rather not but I had no idea that it wasnt going to fit snugly when the sensor pad was underneath it.

    Is a gap that size safe? What should we do? Has anyone else had this problem?

    Put a sheet on it & it seems to fit a bit better now. Theres still a gap though - about 2 fingers width.

    Ill try & put a photo up later, it wont let me do it on my tablet

    Maybe check the SIDS website, I think the recommendation is no more than a 2cm gap.

    Dh bought a mattress that was the wrong size and I ended up buying some foam and squeezing it into the sides so it is now super tight.
