We use a waterproof crib pad under the baby in our family bed.

Actually, we use half of one -- we got two waterproof crib pads and cut them in half, so now we have four to rotate.

So if my son's diaper ever leaks (very rarely), all we have to do is change the pad, not the sheets.

Thanks to Linda for this Frugal Baby Tip!
