But it makes the bed not very breathable and sweat stays glued to my body and her spit up doesn't dry up and it's just ugh! awful.
Bed, Bath and Beyond has allergen fancy ones for like $80 or so. Just wanted to get some input on if they're worth it before I buy.
Or maybe you have one you really like?
Thanks in advance!!
Because I do not relish the idea of having to strip the whole bed if a leak occurs, I bought a couple of waterproof flannel pads (27" x 50") at BRU- "Especially for Baby" brand. I put those on top of the fitted sheet because I co-sleep with our 13 mo old. He is moving around more at night, so I have started overlapping two to get more coverage. It's also great because my DS drools a lot while sleeping.
We have had too many diaper leaks to count, and it's great to just be able to flip off the pad and lay down a new one after changing him in the wee hours of the night. So, be sure to have spares on hand. They have not leaked through to the bed sheets at all.

We just got one from Overstock.com that is terry cloth lined with polyurethane (or whatever it is that is inside Thirsties diaper covers). There's also a mesh lining. It's thin, quiet, breathable and it was only $35 or so for the king size . Before we got this, DS and I slept on a large towel that I changed every three nights or so barring any accidents.
