How do Bumpsters cot-bar Bumpers differ with traditional cot bumpers and what are their benefits?

-Bumpsters cot-bar bumpers eradicate all the risks documented on traditional cot bumpers.


-Bumpsters attach using Velcro rather than ties. This means they pose no threat of strangulation and can be easily put on/removed and adjusted to fit all cots.


-They wrap individually around one or two bars of the cot allowing air to still circulate whilst still offering vital protection for babies’ heads.


-They are small pads rather than large expanses of fabric therefore reduce the risk of suffocation.


-Unlike traditional Bumpers, Bumpsters do not have a limited usage time because they are only attached to the bars of the cot therefore; do not act as an aid for babies to escape.

  When trodden on, Bumpsters slide down the bars, enabling parents to use them with babies of any age.


-Due to the nature of Bumpsters, whilst we cannot guarantee that babies will not get their limbs trapped in cot bars, they can however help reduce this risk and offer cushioned

  protection should this happen.


-When moving from a cosy crib to a large cot, Bumpsters reduce the drafts felt through the cot, making babies feel more secure.


-Bumpsters do not restrict the views of baby and allow parents to still view their child easily from afar.





How many Bumpsters will I need and how do I arrange them?

This all depends upon the age of your child.


Based upon the advice from health professionals with babies in ‘feet to foot’ position;


-For babies who are not yet able to move or just roll side to side, protection on the bars either side of their head should be suffice.


-As baby becomes more active, additional cot-bar bumpers can be added to bars as/when and wherever needed.


-Both large and small cot-bar bumpers can be stacked on top of each other for full height bar protection if necessary.


-Our advice would be to experiment with different arrangements until you find the best set up for your baby.
