Do I need to wash the mattress pads like I did the fleece (fleece was washed 4 times)? Also do I need something heavy to hold fleece and pads down, maybe like brickes?

I would wash the matress pads too - they may well have been treated with dear knows what in the manufacturing process, and washing will remove any residues.

You don't need something heavy to hold down the fleece etc - unless you have burrowing pigs - that special breed who prefer to be UNDER the fabric you so carefully arranged for them, than ON it! They do however also help to keep everything in place - though litter boxes, hideys etc can do the same job.
