I thought about dumping a box of baking soda on it and let it soak up odor and moisture . Some one said pet stores have enzyme stuff .

      Depends what you mean by "soaked" the mattress. If you really mean "soaked" then just mopping up the top level will not work. If you live somewhere hot and sunny taking it outside and rinse thoroughly with the hose is your best bet. Leave in full sun – It will take at least 3 days to dry.

      If this is too drastic I would do the following:
      1. Towels to soak up the urine;
      2. sponge liberally with warm soapy water + 1 tablespoon per (liter / quart) of oxygen based bleach;
      3. blot dry with more towels, vacuum and then a spray on unscented carpet shampoo.

      (I do not trust some of the perfumes in normal carpet shampoos for a child to sleep on afterwards.)

      To mask the smell a few drops of clove oil, peppermint oil or vanilla essence in the water can help.

      I have also used anti smell sprays such as febreze but they really only do the top layer and are quite expensive. A solvent to take out the urea crystals in the layer below is required.

      While the matress is still damp a layer of cat litter "Crystals" can absorb the last of the liquid and smell. If it is on a slat or wire base put a fan on it and leave to dry if this has to be done indoors.

      Wipe up any excess that is on the mattress. Spray it with white vinager and let it dry completely.

      If you have a small carpet cleaner use that. That is the best way to get it out.

      You need to deodorize it and make sure that it gets completely dry or mold could start growing in the mattress. I’d invest in a rubber or plastic cover too.

      Frebreeze works really well. Let the matress dry and lightly spray with frebreeze. Let dry again before making the bed. May take a few times to get the smell out, but it will work. Works on cat spray too.

      First, I would blot up and dry as much of it as you can. After that, there are a couple of options you can try. You can try using upholstery cleaners, mild detergent mixed with water or white vinegar (especially if there is a smell). You want to make sure that you do not soak the mattress though. Letting liquid get down into the foams will break down the mattress faster and could cause mildew or mold, which would be much worse than the stains. Use a damp sponge to apply your cleaning mixture and blot it dry. After you are finished let it air dry.

      I would also suggest purchasing a mattress protector. There are plenty of protectors now that don’t give that "plastic sheet" feeling and still give complete protection from not only spills and liquids but also dust mites. Something like this would be a good solution:
