I bought this for my husband and I's bed realizing that we have a three month old son and at some point during his life there would be multiple accidents on our bed. It is a great pad. Very thick and plush. And, it doesn't make you sweat at all. But, of course, the day I put it on there, my sons diaper leaked while he was lying on our bed. Lets just say that the mattress pad wasn't completely waterproof, but it did help - somewhat.
