I also think that newer porta cots and mattresses are made with SIDS guidelines in mind. That news article is 6 yrs old, and I've seen the difference in portacots from then and now. The newer ones have those breathable net sides that go almost to the bottom..
Anyway. Point is. I'm sure u'll have ur nephew's safety in mind when making ur purchase.. if he is used to a mattress, then so be it. Maybe his parents have a preference to the type of mattress you'd need?

Personally i wouldn't add a mattress.
On the other hand i also wouldn't be too worried if other people on a forum were concerned about my parenting skills, i guess the fundamental here is safety first!
Well "opinionated's" message got across - firm words leave imprints!

They Look great, and have loads of great testimonials. I was thinking it would be a good solution to giving my baby some comfort, and also be safe, as the mattress type base has pockets underneath that you feed the portacot hard mattress into. There is only a layer of quilt under the baby, so it doesn't seem here is any padding my baby could get caught between.
Also pretty sweet that I dont have to pack a million different sheets for the baby, and break my back making beds while we are holidays!
Does anyone have one? Are they as good as they sound?
