Bed Guards Help Keep Kids Safe At Bedtime

By Sarah Jones

The role of a bed rail is to prevent a toddler (and their eiderdown and cuddlies) from rolling off the bed. The bed rail is secured down the unguarded edge of the bed and acts as a solid rail against which a toddler can safely press.

Bed guards are most frequently used when a young child is transitioning from a cot, with sides, to a ‘big bed’. Typically this transition takes place when a child is between the ages of 2 and 4 years.

Most safety rails are pliable nylon mesh supported on a solid frame or, sometimes, made entirely of wood. They are manufactured in a range of presentations but functionally they are the same. The bed rails have to be constructed and then secured to the bed slats with brackets and screws. The guards are generally bulky and costly.

Recently a great new bed guard has been launched. The new bed guard is marketed under the brand name The Bed Bumper. This innovation is 1000mm of bendable foam and it goes straight onto the uncovered mattress.

The bed is then made up using normal bed sheets leaving the bumper securely in place on the mattress. The bumper will not move around as it is held in place by the sheets and by the fact that the cotton mattress and sheets ‘stick’ to the foam.

No assembly is required, no screws and clamps, no hard metal, plastic or wood and, most importantly, no chance of entrapment. The foam is pale yellow and sits discreetly under the sheets with no show through.

The new bed rail is ideal for any bed and any age or size of child as it can be bought in a range of sizes. A 100cm weighs less than 400g so it is perfect for use in and out of the home. The Bed Bumper is simple to bend and compress into any luggage and won’t add any noticeable extra load.

The safety of all bed guards is carefully controlled according to the UK Safety Standard for bed guards :BS 7972.
