It does not seem waterproof…
We received the item, but the item itself does not seem waterproof. The underside does not seem to have any type of sealed backing and it looks that any type of liquid would nonetheless seep through the pad.I wouldn’t recommend it.
Great product but may not need it for Naturepedic Mattress
I bought this to put over our Naturepedic Lightweight Classic 2 Stage mattress for extra protection. It seems like it’s made of heavy duty canvas so am sure it will hold up to any messes. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars (vs. 5 for all our other Naturepedic items – crib mattress, changing pad, cradle mattress) is because this is probably overkill if you have a naturepedic mattress already. It’s very thick and I got this instead of the FITTED crib pad because those reviews made it seem like the fitted pad took a long time to dry. Either way, it’s still great quality and would be great if you don’t have a waterproof mattress to begin with.
Don’t know that I’d call it waterproof
Yes, it seems to be comfy, and I feel better about using this than a plastic/vinyl sheet for all of the obvious reasons. But I don’t really consider it waterproof. Fortunately in my daughter’s first year we’ve had very few leakage problems at night, but the first time her diaper did fail her, I removed her sheet only to discover this “waterproof” pad was wet through. There wasn’t a huge leak, either, my daughter’s cloth diaper had just slipped out above its cover and wicked moisture up, through her jammies, and onto the sheet. But the pad still did not prevent the mattress from getting wet. Maybe it helps for minor things, drool and whatnot simply by providing bulk between sheet and mattress, but I wouldn’t count on it for anything major. Really wish I had better things to say about it.
great crib protector, healthier materials
This is a great crib protector pad. (Pee pad) It is flat which makes it easier to change. The materials are also healthier than any other waterproof crib pad I have found. I have a non-waterproof crib mattress so just in case, I have the fitted one and then this flat one on top of that. I keep the fitted one on at all times and I only change the flat one. I have 2 flat ones, one to use and one to wash. We haven’t had any leaks so the fitted one is still clean. It does take a while to dry but that doesn’t bother me. I just put it on low heat and set my dryer for 50 minutes. A longer drying time is well worth the benefits of having healthier bedding materials. Use low heat to make sure you don’t damage the waterproof membrane.
way bigger than it says it is!
Need to return it as it is -way- bigger than its size and we cant fit it on the crib without it bunching and causing a hazard. Just measured it – it is 31×54.
so far awesome!
We have not had a severe leak yet so i can’t speak to that yet. but minor leaks and spit up it does great. the fit is a bit big but when we put the fitted sheet on top we dont have any issues. would definitely recommend this one!
Well worth the $
I am so glad I purchased two of these crib pads. I love that they are not fitted and it makes the crib easier to make. I took another reviewers suggestion and make the crib with a crib pad, sheet, crib pad and sheet. This way if an accident occurs in the night, I can just pull off the top set. It is also good to know that they are breathable and not vinyl. They wash and dry well too. I can see these passed along through a lot of babies when I am done with them.
