*sigh* I am not accusing you of anything. I was pointing out that as stated on all new portacots these days, adding a mattress is dangerous. If you are checking on your child every 5 minutes, they are not "fully supervised" but are supervised at 5 minute intervals. Suffocation can occur in that amount of time. Heck, children can drown in a bath in 20 seconds if you watch the warnings on TV. As I said, it is your child and your call what you decide to do. As parents we all have to decide what we think is acceptable given what we know. You can get stroppy if you like, but if my information given in this thread saves one bub hubbers child from a risky situation or death, then I am happy, regardless of whatever you choose to do OP. I don't think I have attacked you or your parenting choices in any way, if you see it that way, I apologise, I did not mean offence.

OP, like many women here, come for thoughts and suggestions - no need for harsh judgements on the choices other parents make.
Sorry, but I've had my fill of judgmental women today.

I have never and would never. And agree 100% with Opinionated's posts.
If porta cots were meant to be used with mattresses they would recommend that.

SAB, if this is for your child care set up wouldn't it be refused by officials for being unsafe?
Sorry just another opinion, what you do with your own child is one thing but once you start child minding you need to follow the rules and recommendations.
