I cross posted this on natural living forum, but though maybe I could get input here as well? Hope it's not to O/T.

We need a mattress cover for our new king sized bed--just in time for the 4th family member to join us! I know the point is to NOT have diaper leaks, but it sure seemed to happen a lot in the nb stage. I do not want anything plasticy or PUL, so I know it would not be waterproof and just water resistant. Anyone have any suggestions? I found this wool puddle pad on an internet search - http://www.abundantearth.com/store/c...puddlepad.html- but there must be more options out there?

I used an old wool blanket (read: well-felted! ) that I folded in two for two layers under my DD and I. We also have a king-size bed, and I used a double bed blanket, folded so that it was full width, but half length. I figured we didn't need it below my knees! :LOL

It worked really well, was easily washable, didn't squeek or shift. Perfect! (especially during those early breastfeeding weeks).

HTHs!

I second the wool blanket, and if you are the nervous type you can add a piece of flannelized rubber mat (from Joann's Fabrics) underneath, the wool blanket will keep you comfy. Nice in summer and winter, and can be cheap...

Well, this wool pad is the size of a crib matress, but would provide as much protection as you would need I would think. I'm sure there are more... I'll keep looking.

Good idea on the blanket! Lot's cheaper too...now if I can find an old one.

I guess I'm one of the weird ones - I never leaked last time. But the dipers sometimes did.
