At The Sleep Store we don’t sell the padded cot bumpers you see in most baby stores, as we consider them really unsafe.
BUT we highly recommend these amazing Breathable Baby Mesh Cot Liners for keeping arms, legs and dummies in the cot as well as providing safe protection against bumps!
Safer than traditional padded bumpers, our patented Breathable Mesh Cot Liner is made with breathable fabric that promotes airflow reducing the risk of suffocation and re-breathing carbon dioxide, a risk factor for SIDS. Safe and stylish, your Mesh Cot Liner also impedes climbing, protects from bumps and bruises and reduces the risk of getting arms and legs stuck between cot slats.
Adjustable to fit Standard 4-sided Slatted Cots, Solid Back, Solid Front, and Solid End Cots. Contains one short panel for drop-side railing and one long panel for wrapping the stationary sides of the cot, both 28cm high.
- Safety evaluated.
- Tucks below mattress for extra protection.
- No chemicals, flame retardants or formaldehyde.
- The fabrics have been evaluated by a global leader in safety research and technology helping businesses create safety solutions that deliver a business advantage. Breathable Baby is committed to a safety evaluation process – see below for more info.
Which product should I buy for my cot?
Breathable Mesh Cot Bumpers fit most standard 4-slatted cots. Comes with 1-long and 1-short panel. Long panel wraps around sides and short panel wraps around the front. Velcro closures allows for an adjustable fit for flexible fit. Does not fit cribs with attachable changing tables. Slightly padded mesh for bumping.
Can this be used on a solid end cot?
Yes it can but you will get a better fit using the specific 2-sided Breathable Baby Mesh Cot Liner.
What material is used in Breathable Baby Products?
Our padded mesh liners and breathable toys are made of 100% polyester for easy washing and care. No chemicals, flame retardants or formaldehyde. Our fabrics are made exclusively for Breathable Baby featuring A.C.T. Air Channel Technology which allows air to flow within the fabric to help reduce the risks of suffocation and overheating. Our ultra soft, wick-dry fabric is 100% polyester. Keeps baby cool and comfortable, dry and just at the right temperature to help with overheating. Easy washing and care. No chemicals, flame retardants or formaldehyde.
For how long can I USE the Breathable Mesh Cot Liner in my cot?
The Breathable Mesh Cot Liner is made with a thin lightly-padded mesh, unlike traditional stuffed bumpers which can be used as leverage for climbing out of the cot.
Overseas regulations state that bumpers should be removed once baby can sit up, so this is what is written on the packaging for Breathable Baby products. However please note that these regulations are based on the unsafe traditional bumpers rather than safe and breathable mesh.
Since this product is not a traditional bumper, parents and caregivers should use their own good judgement and remove this product when no longer useful or if your child starts trying to pull it off or playing with it.
