13Get A Cover For Mom And Dad's Mattress

You may have thought to get a waterproof mattress and protective pads for the crib and bassinet, but did you think about your own bed? Whether you’re going to be bed-sharing or not is irrelevant. Moms who have had their water break in their beds — like me — will

insist that the ten bucks you’ll spend on a waterproof pad for your bed is more than worth having to replace the whole thing.

Besides, who wants to go mattress shopping right after they’ve just had a baby? Having a mattress professionally cleaned when you first come home with your newborn isn’t ideal, either, though it may be a cost saver. Instead, protect your bank account and your bed at the same time by investing in a waterproof pad that you can sleep on for the last month or so of your pregnancy.
