The bumper is so easy to install, especially compared to traditional bed rails. Simply pull back the fitted sheet and place underneath. The bumper works with most fitted sheets - no need to purchase new ones (though it may be easier to install with deep fitted sheets). We deliberately designed the bumper shorter than the full length of a bed so that your child can climb in by himself without needing to climb over it.
The bed bumper is so much safer than traditional bed rails as it is used underneath the fitted sheet, eliminating the entrapment issue with a child's hair getting caught in the rail. A foam bumper is safer than inflatable bumpers which can deflate without notice. We had our bed bumper tested by an independent lab for lead, small parts safety and the federal regulations for portable bed rails - to ensure that our bed bumper is completely safe for your child.
We lined the cover is a waterproof backing to keep the foam damage free, so necessary at the toilet training age. The cover is made of a super soft bamboo fabric which is natural. Our cover also features a non-slip bottom to keep the bumper securely in place.
There are so many other uses for the bed bumper including: co-sleeping with a baby, dividing a bed for two children, for active adult sleepers, for seniors, as a head rest and to help kids feel secure in bed.
