    I haven't seen any anti-allergen cot mattresses but you might be able to get a mattress protector which could help on that issue. My eldest son has asthma so I know how worrying allergies can be.

    We got our cot bed mattress from Ebay (an online shop). It was new and is one of the sprung types. It cost only £40 which was a bargain.

    Shop around. You needn't pay the earth for a mattress but make sure you get the right measurements. Measure the old mattress not the cot itself. :)

    Good luck!

    I don't know about mattresses really but I did read in Mother & Baby mag yesterday that you should always buy a new mattress per baby (something FSIDs recommend apparently). We were given our cot by my cousin and it had a fancy mamas and papas mattress with it that we couldn't afford to replace just yet - unless with a much cheaper one.
