I need to get a mattress for our cot, and would like to get a good one, possibly an organic one. But I gather from the SIDS advice that the new mattress needs to have a waterproof cover on it. Which kind of negates getting an organic one. And wouldn't it be rather sweaty for the baby sleeping with a plasticky cover under the sheets?
Understand having a waterproof cover for practical reasons but is it considerd a SIDS risk not to have one? Does that mean a wet mattress is a SIDS risk? So confused!
I understand a new mattress is probably better for air circulation but would have thought a waterproof cover on top of this would reduce circulation. I gather it is about all the layers you're using but am prob just being 'duh'.
