My ds wet his bed this morning (cot bed) The mattress is plastic one side and a breathable waterproof the other side which is the side he sleeps on. Went to put cover back on matress (which is foam and felt it wet on underside. When i've pulled the mattress completely out underneath it is full of black mould.

I am mortified, not a clue how the moisture has got in there but the underside of mattress is soaking. His chest has been bad for ages and its no wonder. I feel so quitly but had no reason to check it.

So go have a look at yours just in case.

Did you buy it from new and how old is it..? TBH I would contact the company you bought it from....

Im sure a matress should last a good few years...??

Not sure if you mean the otherside to what your ds lies on was mouldy or if it was "inside" the matress.? I constantly turn dd and ds's mattress to allow it to air..Mould is evil stuff angry. We battle with it in our bathroom..sad.

tbh i can't remember when i bought it. ds is 3 1/2 cot/bed was my brothers Think we had it off them when ds was born bec at that point we had two in cots as there was only 13 months between dd and ds. flaming heck so, so complicated - its thrown out the back now will have to take it to the tip.

we have matress that is soft plastic covered oneside and purple colour material on other (not sure if purple is waterproof) he lies with white side up - his matress however is not foam - duluxe sprung (cost £60 and that was special offer cos we bought the cotbed too) the cover does not come off - should i worry?? had a sniff and all smells ok!
