Do bed guards work?

Hi there
I wondered if anyone had used bedguards to stop their toddlers from falling out of bed in the night? Do they work? Also, can you use them with slatted beds or will they only work with divan beds?

We have used a bed guard on a slatted toddler bed, and it was fine. Yes, it did work - DD didn't fall out when it was on!

We put a guard on DS's little slatted bed - an IKEA one. He immediately bashed his nose on it, blood everywhere, so we took it off and put his old cot mattress on the floor next to his bed instead! (it's a v low bed)

we use the tomy portablre one and it is great
made of mesh so ds can basj agaianst it all he likes and it is easier to remove. fold and take elsewhere if you are going away

it works with both slated and divan beds

I'm with popsy. I've got the same one for DD's metal slatted bed. works a treat.

Another vote for the Tomy one.

Another recommendation for a portable mesh one, which we used on DS's slatted bed. DS used to sleep all over the place in his cot, and I felt it was safer as he got used to his bed, particularly as he started out in his sleeping bag.

we've got a mesh one as well - it's brilliant and fits in the boot if we are travelling.

here you go

ds has a full length single divan bed and it is great on that. also great on my niece's slated toddler sized bed
