Do I need to change my baby's mattress now that he is 15 months? He has been using the same mattress since he was around 3 months. He sleeps in a cot.

  • Is it a crib mattress? If so, he's fine.

  • No! Why? Did he urine on it a lot? Any stains from milk or juice? If not then no...let him keep it. My two nieces used their same mattress from the crib straight to their toddler beds.

  • A cot?

    If it's a crib mattress then NO you don't need to change it.

  • I agree with the others. If it's a crib mattress it does not need to be changed. My older son used his mattress for about 4 years. Now my younger son is using the same mattress. And they are 6 years apart in age.
