Pack 'n Play mattress pad/liner?

So DH and I put together the Pack 'n Play yesterday and will be using it as a bassinet for the first few months. We registered for a sheet to cover the pad. But we were wondering, what happens if we have some leakage and the baby pees on it? Is it worth it to get a mattress pad? Does anyone know anything about these?

Just curiuos what we need to make the bassinet functional and still  have it be safe for LO.

Any insight is appreciated.

Re: Pack 'n Play mattress pad/liner?

  • Hmm. This never occured to me with DD#1...we used it for occassional napping, and never really had a problem. In the event of leakage I'd probably just hand wash and febreeze the heck out of that puppy...

  • The mattress pad should also be machine washable, and will protect anything that is NOT machine washable from getting soiled.


    I would go ahead and get at least one.  It is not necessary to be functional, but I think it would make things easier.  You can always use the mattress pad(s) later in the crib if you want to.

    In the day care I work in, we don't have mattress pads but are constantly washing the sheets for our pack n plays.  I think a mattress pad would be a nice addition.  We'll probably use one as well.
