How to select bed rails

As every parent knows well, there comes a time when your newborn child all too suddenly becomes a toddler. From this transition from baby to the next stage of growing up, comes the transition of moving from the cot to a real bed. Whilst parents may worry about their children falling off from their beds, this should not be the case.This article details information about how to select the right bed rails.

Points to consider

Materials and workmanship When choosing side rails, it is always important to find out about the materials they are constructed from and, if possible, examine the quality of the workmanship. The bed side rails should ideally have smooth and rounded surfaces. Whilst most popular brand names will be perfectly fine in this respect, care should be taken in this regard if you are buying online, especially from auction websites or third parties. A place for relaxation Many parents know the difficulties involved in getting a young child to fall asleep. From being afraid of the dark to 'monsters under the bed', anything which can help the child to relax will only be a bonus for him as well as for the parent. Consider choosing child bed rails that depict fun images which your child will recognise. Another alternative is a see-through bed rail whereby your child won't feel so enclosed and will be able to see a night light or pictures on the wall. Safety is key Of course, the safety of your child is paramount and this should be reflected in the type of bed rail which you buy. In order to maximise safety, to try to purchase bed rails which are attached from the top of the mattress. This will ensure that your child doesn't get caught between the bed and the rails. Some bed rails are attached along the sides of the mattress frames and this is not safe, especially if your child has just made the transition to a big bed.

Buying advice

Research There are many online shops and High Street retailers which sell bed rails. When buying online, always try to buy a reputable brand. If you decide to buy from a third party or via an online auction site, always do as much research as you can about the seller . Compare prices Never forget that for a little extra work, considerable savings can be made, so shop around!
