egg carton mattress pad?

I got my son a twin mattress rather than a toddler bed because he is growing big and fast (understatement I suppose since he is as big as a 3 year old at 19 months). Anywho, his bed mattress isn't very.. soft or padded. It is like sleeping on carpet padding. At what age would it be ok to put a mattress pad on the bed for him?

  • You could do it now. Just be sure that he doesn't have trouble turning over. Make sure that it isn't too cushy/soft and deep that there would be a concern of him suffocating.
