If you are going to use your mattress again with baby number two, here's somethings you will need to look out for to make it's safe to use.

You need to make sure that it's clean, firm and flat, that it doesn't have any rips or tears and that it was previously protected with a waterproof cover. Of course you can get waterproof mattresses, but on this one you can see i've got the waterproof cover, then the sheet on top. The final thing you need to check is that it fits snuggly in the cot, bedside crib, Moses basket - whatever sleep space your baby is using.

Hope these tips help.
