Are Cot Bumpers Safe For Your Baby?

Cot Bumpers - Before You Buy (Disclaimer)

Understanding Cot Bumper Risks

Before jumping into any purchase for your child, whether it be cot bumpers, bottles, diapers, or toys, it's crucial to understand every risk associated with the product due to the fragile nature of babies. Cot Bumpers, like most baby products, also come with their own risks, so be sure to read on if you're seeking peace of mind before buying.

Cot Bumper Benefits

Cot bumpers are used for babies to add soft, comfortable cushioning to the cot, preventing bumps on their little heads that may occur at the sides of the cot and lead to injury. They also help to keep their legs and arms from getting caught or sticking out of the slats and may be particularly useful for specific cot designs.

Are Cot Bumpers Safe?

There are several cot bumper safety guidelines to follow before use:

  • As with all our products, cot bumpers should be used responsibly and only while the baby is attended to ensure no harm.
  • Keep the room well-ventilated with plenty of airflow.
  • If you are using cot bumpers, we recommend removing them when your baby can eventually pull themselves up to stand, as this will help prevent any accidents.
  • Babies may begin using them as an aid to attempt climbing out of the cot however, this behaviour should not occur until at least 6-8 months old. With that in mind, keep a close watch on your baby as they grow and develop!

Ultimately, it is YOUR decision as the parent whether or not to buy a cot bumper or any product with associated risks. We hope this disclaimer provides you with clarity before purchasing - feel free to reach out to our team at, who are more than happy to assist you with any further queries.
