    Just when I thought I had everything sussed, Im getting in a flap about cotbed sheets, Im planning on using a moses basket and swaddling and then growbagging so would I need a waterproof sheet for then for the cotbed, I have bought one off ebay its cotton on one side and waterproof on the other so do I need to put another fitted sheet on this one and are they safe, are there issues with being breathable etc?

    They are safe, however if it is a plastic one baby can get rather hot laying on top of it even with a sheet over top. There are ones that feel just like cotton on the upper layer that are usually wet proof and a dust mite cover. I only have one of those because we are using a pack and play with a mattress that isn't water proof already. Lots of mattresses have a plastic or water proof top layer already. You just want to be able to pull off the fitted sheet and wipe up any spill through and get a new fitted sheet on.

    Got to say, my son's 2 and we've never yet had a need for waterproof sheets.
