This should be "A baby's mattress"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HansMoerbe

Or: "The/a mattress of a/the child." The Duolingo translation is wrong.

That is very right. Dou's grammar is absurd

It seems to be fixed now (Jan 2018). I got the answer "A child's mattress".

October 2018 i answered, "a child's mattress" and it was not accepted


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JeffreyPov

If you accept : "Friends' conversation" then you should accept "Child's mattress"....be consistent in use of the article "a".

By June 2018, "Child's mattress" is the preferred translation.

The child's mattress should be accepted


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/phb2013

It still isn't on August 28, 2019. But when the same question came around again "child's mattress" was accepted.

The answer should be a mattress of a/the child. "of child" sounds wrong to me.

It's not fixed yet.....I got it wrong!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Elisabeth619616

"A child's mattress" should be correct!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AndyCole9

Still not fixed September 2018

I put in a mattress for a child - and it said it was wrong!!! Can you guys please sort this one into grammatically correct English please?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AdamShort10

The translation is bad english, add a "the" or "'"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/1058abesolves

it's funny that one of the options for reporting an error is "the audio doesn't sound right"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Karin313650

Dec 2018 and it is still not fixed!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Karin313650

Thanks! Looks promising! I really hope it gets better.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/frank856835

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/hrhasbo

We report the same things over and over, and the changes are not made.

How do i report this


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Babu-G

When you get red notices of errors you need to click on the "Report" button. Then you get a list of options to choose from. The one I most commonly use is "My answer should be accepted"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CliffordPereira

needs correcting into normal English
