Can DC2 sleep on DS1's cot mattress?

Hiya - have just now moved DS1 from cot to bed (fingers crossed) in preparation for DC2's arrival. Anyone have any thoughts on whether it's OK for siblings to inherit mattresses? We've had the cot from new for 2 and a half years, and it still looks in great nick to me. Thanks.

Yes it's fine to use the mattress provided that it is in some sort of sealed cover if it is a foam one.

We replaced DD's mattress for DS and will replace it again when DS goes into a bed and DC3 is born.

I reused dd's mattress for ds as it had a removable washable cover and the underneath bit was waterproof and could also be cleaned.

It's about whether or not there is any foam exposed. Most of them have the removable covers and then the sealed plastic bit underneath which is why they are okay to use. It even states that on the SIDs info.

Thanks for the info - didn't look at official advice before posting but Mumsnet just as good! It is one of those with a removable washable cover, so will clean every washable part before bump arrives in December.
