Moving from cot to toddler bed, the toddler bed we have seen which is wooden, has built in bed rails to stop toddler falling out. Most toddler beds have bed rails I know and it's fab but my question is... how on earth do you stop them banging head on the rails? In the cot we had bumpers but not sure if you can get bumpers short enough as the rails are only half a length of the bed each side... Any advice welcome! Xx

you shouldn't have had bumpers!

but that aside, i used to line the top of the bed with soft toys and cushions so if my daughter shuffled up she would be protected

Just put them straight into a single bed and let them get on with it.

And cot bumpers are really dangerous.

Let them bang their heads! They will only do it hard once.

I know my baby is awake and moving when I hear him banging his head in the cot.

You are literally wrapping your baby in cotton wool!!! grin

My little girl is always knocking her head on her cot bed rails but it never seems to hurt her, I wouldn't worry.

It's not like there's sharp edges on the bed rails to worry about.

Never used bumpers but our cot bed didn't have wooden sides so used this bed guard instead would that be an option? Also great for visiting relatives as can use any bed!
