I was using the one my brother gave me with the cot. 6yrs old after his 2 kids. At 13m I got my son a toddler bed and a new cot mattress for that and it's a lot more comfy. It's got latex.
I will def get bub 2 a new mattress but have also got him an amby hammock so I'll hold off getting the mattress straight away

Nope, DS1 and DS2 used the same mattress, DS3 had a new one because the previous one had been used for 4 years before he came along.

The cot came from my friend and I got a new mattress. But not between my 2 girls.

Straight from the SIDS website:
There is no evidence to show that there is an increased risk of SIDS for babies who sleep on a second hand mattress providing that baby:
· Sleeps on the back
· Sleeps on a flat, firm, clean, well fitting mattress that is in good condition
· Sleeps with no bedding covering the face or head
· Is not exposed to tobacco toxins before birth or after

Glad so many of you have done so and/or will do. DD1's mattress is in perfect condition so I didn't want to buy another one

@GM01 you beat me to it! Second hand mattresses are not SIDS risks.
On the other hand I did have to toss my bassinet mattress this week as it's got a bit of mould on it.
