Benefits of a Crib Mattress Pad

Finding the best crib mattress pad doesn’t have to be a challenge. Here’s what you need to know when looking for a crib mattress pad for your baby’s nursery.

Because babies and growing toddlers spend much of their time sleeping, it’s imperative to have a quality crib, crib mattress and bedding accessories—including crib mattress pads! Crib mattress pads provide an additional layer of quilted comfort and act as a mattress cover to help keep your baby mattress protected from leaky messes for lasting use. This will help ensure that your crib mattress will transition with ease to a clean, comfortable toddler mattress. Convenience, comfort and protection are just some of the many benefits of a crib mattress pad.

A crib mattress pad acts as a protector for your crib and toddler bed mattress. It mostly protects against leaky messes / accidents that happen in the night. With a crib mattress pad, you’ll have helped create a more sanitary sleeping surface for baby. Also, waterproof barriers and stain repellent quilted tops help in keeping stains and liquids off of the mattress.  


Easy-to-clean crib mattress pads are machine washable and dryer friendly for convenient clean-ups. Instead of cleaning and waiting for a crib mattress to dry after messes, a crib mattress pad can be quickly thrown in the wash so baby can get back to sleep more quickly. It’s also helpful to keep a second mattress pad on hand.
