Finding A Good Waterproof Mattress Pad

Sorry to say the IKEA waterproof crib pad is not absorbent at all. We bought a second thinking we had ruined the waterproofing in the dryer, only for the second to fail as well. Soaked right through to my son's toddler befd mattress. Bummer, cause it's only $5. One could also say, to be expected, cause it's only $5 :-)

NOTE: this was not the fitted one, this was a single flat one that you just lay down (the Bnip maybe?). Perhaps the fitted SKYDDA HÖGTworks better. If you experiment, post a comment here about the results!
UPDATE Oct 2010: The waterproof crib pads from BabiesRUS have proven to be much more effective; I have had them for about 6 months. They DO leech through to the mattress if heavily soiled but MUCH more absorbent overall.
