When we moved my daughter from her crib to her big girl room around the age of 2, we decided that purchasing a new mattress seemed like a ridiculous idea. She had not yet potty-trained, and on top of years of accidents, we assumed there would be the occasional sickness related clean-up issues. At the time, we were offered a mattress and frame by my sister-in-law. The bed had seen better days, but it seemed appropriate for a little girl just turning two. The aged mattress certainly did not need a cover of any type, so we skipped that step in the bed-making process.
