Wondering if I can get any tips. My 1st son was a jumper in his crib, and he ripped his mattress from all the bouncing - just some smaller slits and a bit pulling away on some of the edges. It's a good mattress, and I'd rather not buy another one for baby due in Oct. Does anybody know of anything I can encase the whole mattress in or if I could just throw the mattress pad overtop and not worry about it? Thoughts? Thanks!!Answer Question

I would buy a new mattress & cover it with a waterproof mattress pad. The new baby could swallow pieces of the old mattress. Buy pads & sheets that fit more snugly too. My sheets were so tight that I could hardly make the bed let alone the sheets come loose themselves. That's also a smother hazard.

Walmart sells hypoallergenic matress covers that zip pver the matress. I imagine that they'd sell crib sized ones too. If there's only small tears, and the matress isn't beat to heck, I can totally understand not buying a new one. We're reusing DD's old crib matress as well for our new baby due in December.
