Do I Need a Waterproof Pad on a Waterproof Mattress?

Preparing your child’s nursery can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to equipping their crib. When researching, you see companies offering not just mattresses, but toppers, waterproof pads, changing pads,and son on. Especially if you are purchasing a waterproof mattress, things can get confusing when finger out what you actually need and what is just a nice addition.

The biggest question we see when it comes to accessories for a waterproof crib mattress is, “should I also purchase a waterproof pad?”

While it is not required for you to add a waterproof pad, we certainly recommend it. In fact, we recommend buying two! But why?

Prevents Bacteria
Adding a waterproof pad on top of the mattress is one of best ways to prevent bacteria from getting on the mattress. Another side effect of body is the spread of bacteria. A waterproof mattress pad is an excellent protection for your baby. Moreover, dust mites live where they can find dead skin cells, and over time, a mattress can be full of it. Dust mite allergies are well-known to cause sneezing, runny nose, and shortness of breath. Therefore, the pad keeps the bed extra clean by acting as a barrier between the sheets and the mattress.

Makes Clean-Up Easier

After an accident happens, you simply take out the sheets, plus the pad, and toss them in the washer. Don’t worry, most mattress pads are machine washable and dryer friendly. Without a mattress pad, you’ll have to take out the mattress from the bed, wipe it, and then clean the surface with antibacterial soap. Besides, your kid won’t have a dry mattress to sleep on for hours. At that moment, you’ll be disappointed in yourself and ask why you didn’t get the pad. If you choose to use a Biloban waterproof pad as well, after a nighttime accident you can simply throw the pad in the wash and head back to bed!

Two Pads Keep Accidents At Bay
When it comes to adult sheets, many of us keep a spare set in case we spill and need to wash the first set. With the same logic, if you buy two pads, you won’t have to worry about bacteria on the mattress if your child happens to have another accidents while you are washing the first pad. It’s a great, affordable investment. 


So do I need a waterproof pad on a waterproof mattress? Of course, you do. Mattress pads are great because they make a safe and comfortable bed for your child. Moreover, you’ll be able to easily clean the bed when needed. I think every kid’s bed needs it, and you should also get a second one in case you need a backup plan during the night. Biloban waterproof crib mattress pad made of high quality microfiber, which is extremely soft and breathable, provides extreme comfort for your little one.
