It is said that a mother’s womb is the safest most comfortable place for the baby in the whole world. And nothing could be truer than that. When a baby comes out into the world his/her next bed should be extremely comfortable so that the baby feels safe and secure. In order to make sure that the bed is comfortable and soft it should be of great quality and should have extra bedding accessories which add to the good quality.
There are many cot bumpers out there but there are many factors that should be taken into consideration before making the purchase. An item that is going to be so close to the baby should be safe and of high quality. The first factor to consider is the material. The material of the bumper should be extremely soft and gentle that no matter how much the baby touches it there should be no redness or allergic reaction. Babies have extremely sensitive skin and it can get irritated very easily so the material should be quite gentle and organic. However it should also be fluffy and sturdy enough to protect the baby from the harsh edges of the cot. It should also cover all the openings of the cot so that there is no way the baby can get stuck.
Secondly it is important to make sure that the cot bumper is breathable. There have been cases where the cot bumpers have been thick to the point that when the babies get close to them they can get suffocated. The material should be lightweight and breathable.
Thirdly the attachment mechanism should be simple and user friendly. The bumper should be securely fixed so there are no loose ends. Look for bumpers that come with an instruction manual so that you don’t go wrong with the assembling procedure. Also make sure that the string should be secured in place so that it doesn’t dangle around. This can cause the children to get strangled in them.
Lastly look for reputable brands that have good reviews online. Look for a baby cot bumper that rates well on the longevity scale. The bumper should be durable enough to last you a long time so that the benefits offset the price you have paid for it. There are many high end cot bumpers out there that are quite pricey but aren’t worth it.
