A bed guard is quite literally a guard for the side of your toddler’s bed. They are mainly used when your toddler first moves from their cot to a bed. They can help your little one get used to a bed after moving from a cot with the safety of four solid sides, to suddenly find themselves in a bed with no sides at all.
We all know how much little ones can wriggle and move while they sleep, so a bed guard protects against your child tumbling out of the bed and onto the floor. Even if you’re using a small toddler bed, which is closer to the floor, falling out of bed can still cause a shock and potentially cause harm.
