In a previous thread, a bunch of people suggested layering waterproof pads with sheets in a baby's crib, so that if there's a leak in the middle of the night you can just remove the top sheet and pad, rather than having to change the sheets in the middle of the night.
What kind of pad works best for this? Like a fitted waterproof mattress pad? Or just a flat pad? If flat, what size? I see some online that are not full-size; would I just center those on the mattress?
If anyone can provide links to pads they like or use, that would be awesome. Babies R Us is ideal, but Target or Wal Mart would be fine too.

You can use fitted mattress pads, or the kind that just lay on the mattress...whatever you have. They can be full size or smaller, and you can put it where the baby lies, or even put several of them under the sheet. It doesn't really matter. It's just so much easier to keep the bed made with a few layers of sheets and pads so you can rip off the soiled layer in the middle of the night and have a clean sheet already in place.
