I wouldn't add anything to a portacot. I think babies are so light that the hard mattress wouldn't really bother them like it would an adult. JMO.

Ok, it's for toddler day naps, an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon being checked every 5 minutes but thanks.

Warning- News article- Baby Justin died in 15 minutes.
Porta cot warnings against extra bedding to be law- news article.
Some of you may think I am going overboard in my response to this thread. I just hope no more children ever have to die for a mistake their parents made when they were only trying to make them more comfy. It's just too heartbreaking.

Yes another totally irresponsible parent here. I bought the trifold mattress from baby kingdom. It made a difference.
So either way I'm a crappy parent, when he wouldn't sleep on the hard base I had to bed share.

Yes i did. I put a 3 inch thick mattress thingy type thing in when DD would nap and be in the same room as me. I dont really care if someone thinks im a bad parent because of this. She was fully, constantly supervised and it worked for us.
Plus she had a brace and needed the padding for her bum/back.

Your kid, your life. *I* wouldn't do it, but I am not you. If you feel you have to put a mattress in it, why not just use a regular cot where a matress does not pose any safety risk?

I didn't think it would be a risk for a toddler for fully supervised day naps, but whatever! There are ways to give information that will not upset people and accuse them of harm when simply asking about it!
