Purchasing the right kind of mattress for your baby is one thing however, buying baby mattress protectors is also another task that you need to accomplish. A lot of parents will not feel the need of purchasing this for they think that it is useless. They are very wrong because this protectors are really very important not only for the purpose of protecting the mattress of your baby from any form of spills but will also prevent the skin of your baby to get in contact with the rough surface of the mattress.
Spills are indeed very common when you are taking care of a newborn and it can come almost every day from bottle feedings and urine coming from your baby. And regular exposure to these fluids will definitely ruin the integrity of your mattress. Of course, you can allow it to dry under the heat of the sun yet, the stains will remain there and the foam will eventually soften thus losing its firmness which is needed for your baby’s posture maintenance.
