    Is anyone doing this? I heard amniotic fluid will eat straight through a mattress or a car seat and they will be permanently ruined if waters break on them.

    I was wondering about sleeping on a towel, or do you think having a pad in would be enough?

    no hun, they are big absorbable sheets with a plastic underlining, they kind of resemble puppy training pads ha ha ha.

    they are boots own brand (maternity mats is written on the pack) and they come in a pack of 5. it says on the pack for protecting mattress and furniture in the event of waters breaking. :)
