Babyrest Lambswool Underlay Portacot Strap Is this safe to use as extra padding for my portacot, I understand we shouldn’t use extra mattress or pillows etc but as this product says it’s for a portacot wondering if it is a safe product to add.... also regarding like a mattress protector and sheets, can they be added? My baby is 9 months old and have just gotten her sleep right and now about to go away, really want her to sleep through and be comfortable. Thanks

Woollen underlays generally create a soft surface for sleep, which may be a risk for baby, especially if they are rolling. A firm mattress is important for sleep, particularly for the young baby.
At 9 months of age the risk is lower but there is still concern about the sleep surface being soft/padded for a baby less than 12 months of age. Does this underlay fit tightly?
