I was thinking about getting a water proof mattress pad for my bed just incase my water breaks in the middle of the night. There's a regular mattress pad on there now. Is anyone else using one?

I'd rather save my money. The chances of it breaking in bed are as good as anywhere else. If you need a new mattress pad anyhow, then sure. If not, save your money.

why not buy a hospital soaker pad instead and then use it for baby if he/she sometimes sleeps in your bed it can be used when kids are sick too lie down on so you don't have to change the whole bed.

I would save your money too, especially considering only 15% of womens water breaks

Hi, I used the the waterproof matt from the baby crib. It is very thin, washable and I know I will use it againa and again. If you sleep in the nude I think a crib pad would ease your mind.

i am borrowing a huge pad from a friend, just to be on the safe side. don't want to ruin our mattress. i am also going to keep a towel and plastic bag in the car for the same reason.

In our birthing cla__s they suggest to use a waterproof crib mattress pad, that way you can use it again with the baby and save money. I'm not sure if I will be putting anything - I would mind getting a new mattress, ha ha

Do not get a waterproof matress pad!!! I bought one last year to "save my matress" as Sye put but I couldnt sleep. Since its water proof it doesnt let ANY thing escape, including heat! I woke up every night in a sweat because your body heat stays right there under you, it feels like you water broke every night!! I returned mine after a week and got a normal one that lets heat escape but also protects the matress, trust me dont do it!!

i use the waterproof cover until after the pregnancy and then i'll take it off.

Only 15% of women's water breaks. Most have there water broke by a nurse during labor.

We have a waterproof mattress pad on my side of the bed...we had it, so I wanted to put it on there just in case!

With my daughter the doctor had to break my water, but...with my luck, it'll probably happen in bed or something cause we just got a new one. So I'll be opting for the waterproof pad!
