    get the best one you can afford. I read in a few books that the sprung mattresses are the best. Got mine form IKEA was about £100.

    Book I read it in was the contended little baby book.

    We bought a sprung one from John Lewis for about £100 we wanted to get a fairly decent one that will be comfortable and supportive.

    I prob sound like a right cheapskate but i actually got mine off Ebay (brand new obviously) it was only £18 i think, they had good reviews and had sold over 70! Its foam sprung i think, anyway seems good enough =]

    We got the sleepsafe luxury pocket sprung mattress from Mamas and Papas - £155 (but we got it for less during the 10% discount sale and a £10 gift card). We want the mattress to last the length of baby/toddler being in cotbed - hopefully 4 years! I remember buying a cheaper mattress for myself and the springs started poking through in no time and had to chuck the mattress out, so thought we'd spend a bit more, as I'm worried the same will happen!

    We also got a sleepsafe luxury pocket sprung mattress from mamas and papas. We decided to go for a sprung one as it should support the weight of the child as it gets older and hopefully not sag!

    When we visited Mothercare the other day we were recommended one which is sprung with a foam topper which unzips and can be washed in the machine and the underneath can be antibac sprayed - we are just waiting to order it in. x
