I have a friend who uses the Ultimate Crib Sheet which is a flat crib sheet with attached vinyl layer that is just the size of the top of the mattress. Then it has elastic loops with snaps that you attach to the crib slats, in maybe 6-8 places. It is supposed to be handy to do a quick sheet change when you have a diaper leak or spitup or whatever. I like the idea and wanted to try to make my own. It got me thinking though about what I could use instead of vinyl right where my baby is going to be breathing it all in. The mattress pads I have now do say they have vinyl in them but they are a softer material, like maybe vinyl and something else on top, I'm not sure. Anyway, I know when I was looking into cloth diapers some people were making diaper covers out of fleece. Could you also use fleece as a mattress protector? Any ideas?
