The transition from an enclosed cot to an open bed can be a worry. When I was child my mum pushed my bed against the wall and put pillows on the floor by the open side, which I tried with my daughter Michela.
But hearing bumps in the night through the monitor, accompanied by cries if she was startled out of sleep was upsetting.
What if she bounced off the cushions and hit her head on the floor or worse still against the skirting board? I was eager to see if a bed guard or rail will provide us with peace of mind and uninterrupted sleep.
This is not a recall. Suitable for children from 18 months to 5 years of age.
The Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard is suitable from 18 months to 5 years and for mattresses 54cm to 92cm wide and 8cm to 20cm thick on most beds, except upper bunk beds.
It's a stalwart of the Mothercare range, and has been on the market for a significant time. What we love The Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard is adjustable.
The frame is lightweight and looks good when in place, while the fold-down position makes lifting Michela out of her bed and changing the bed linen easier. The locking mechanism is truly child resistant, as claimed in the instruction manual.
The Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard complies with the standard BS I called my partner to undo it and re-assemble the legs as I had developed a blister on my palm! I finished off the assembly, which was easier as there were pre-drilled holes and big screws for the remaining bits. When fitting the guard, you need to leave a gap of 25cm 10in between the headboard and the guard to avoid risk of strangulation.
This is something recommended by most bed guard manufacturers. Some mums who tried the Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard agree with my partner that it feels less sturdy than a metal framed one.
Others say that it keeps their toddler from falling out of the bed but the frame moves around and rattles if used with a thin mattress, so perhaps it works better with a thick and heavy one.
Who is the Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard best for? Parents after an attractive wooden bed guard that doesn't cost the earth. MadeForMums verdict The Mothercare pine fold-away bed guard is a good looking wooden option.
