    Waterproof mattress pads- twin and crib

    Dd wet the bed last night for the first time in a long time and it reminded me that I should probably grab a mattress protector for the crib she was sleeping on before the baby comes. While the mattress is vinyl and pretty much water repellant, I'd like to get a couple before we have too many accidents on it. Any recommendations for an inexpensive but decent crib sized waterproof pad?

    And for a twin bed- the ones I've bought at ikea seem to like to stick together in the dryer, making little holes where liquid can get through. Since I now know this, I'll likely switch the slightly holey one that is on ds's bed with one that hasn't been dried before since he still has an accident every so often. And then only air dry it from now on. But for a backup/another option, any good waterproof pads for a twin bed out there? I need it to last through the dryer without melting to itself...

    Re: Waterproof mattress pads- twin and crib

    I have PUL mattress pads for the twin beds. They don't really get tested much anymore, but PUL is quiet and they've held up well for years now so we still use them.

    This http://www.walmart.com/ip/Quiet-Comf...ss-Pad/7811155 looks very similar to what we have although I might have bought them at Target. I can't quite remember.

    For the crib I always just used the big flannel textured thin waterproof pads under the sheet. HTH!

    Re: Waterproof mattress pads- twin and crib

    I have a bunch of waterproof mattress pads from Target that all make it through the dryer numerous times just fine. I know some are Room Essentials brand, and at least one is a more expensive brand (RE doesn't make a king size waterproof mattress pad) but I don't remember what brand it is.

    We have at least 2 waterproof crib size mattress pads, but at least one has issues sticking to itself when it goes through the dryer and I don't remember what brand they are.

    Re: Waterproof mattress pads- twin and crib

    I have these on all of our twin beds, have had the same ones for years and no issues with tearing or anything. Even on the bed my 9yo uses daily, and he's rough on everything! I prefer these, so I can use whatever mattress pad covers I prefer. When there used to be accidents, I'd just wipe the vinyl cover down and wash everything else.

    Thanks! My mom actually brought me one of these from Target just yesterday. We put the ruined ones on top of it and then a sheet. Should work perfectly!

    She came up with this after ds wet the bed with the compromised one on his bed and it leaked through to the mattress. I was ticked off! It took 2 days to clean the mattress and let it dry and ds had to sleep on the floor. Here's hoping the combination keeps the mattress dry!

    For twin beds, I like the Ikea ones. I'm not sure if they make crib ones
