I think I found the problem with the negative reviews. The main description is for the fitted crib pad. It looks like when you click on which color you want it changes to the flat pad which is a pack of 2. I think those are getting the bad reviews saying they are too small.
I have the actual Carters Keep Me Dry FITTED crib pad. I have 2. They are about $12 in stores. The FITTED one is awesome! I have had the Sealy brand and Circo brand fitted crib pads. HORRIBLE. Both of them shrink and the top pills- balls up after repeated washings. I wash this Carters one in HOT water and dry on normal heat cycle. It has never shrunk (we have been using it for 8 months). It is fitted tightly enough where I am not concerned that it will come off the mattress, but it is not a battle getting it on either. Don't spend $20 on a "higher end" crib pad. Get 2 or 3 of these and that will be all you'll need! They are super soft and add a layer of cozy without being think where you might worry about suffocation risk. I recommend them to all my friends who are expecting!
JUST BE SURE you are actually ordering the FITTED crib pad and not the plain pack of 2 crib pads.
UPDATE: Looks like they have changed the selections. The good fitted crib pads are the 52x28 inch ones. I'm not sure what the "deluxe" is, they didn't have those when I got mine. However my daughter is STILL using the same 2 pads for 20 months now, and they are still wonderful! They have not torn or shrunk.
