FAQ's

Q

How has the Cot Wrap® bumper been safety tested?

A

Our top priority is to provide you with a safe and quality product. For this reason, the Cot Wrap® bumper has been tested extensively by leading international safety organisation STR and an independent Cambridge laboratory. The new Cot Wrap® bumper meets British Standard 1877-10:1997 for cot bumpers and all applicable parts of EN-7

Q

How thick is the Cot Wrap® bumper?

A

The Cot Wrap® bumper is made from a specially designed kind of air mesh fabric which is 4mm thick. The fabric has been designed to have the optimum level of resistance to cushion against bumps while still remaining breathable and flexible enough so it will collapse under a baby's weight to prevent climbing.

Q

Is the Cot Wrap® bumper suitable for all cots and cot beds?

A

The Cot Wrap® bumper has been designed to fit all UK standard sized cots and cot beds. As it attaches with velcro, it will adjust to accommodate all sizes. It is available in two versions: the 4-sided Cot Wrap® bumper for Cots/Cot Beds with rails on all four sides and the 2-sided Cot Wrap® bumper for Cots/Cot Beds with solid ends (the Cot Wrap® bumper can be fitted to both the railed sides). The Cot Wrap® bumper will fit Stokke® Sleepi™ cots (the 4-sided version) and most Boori cots. The only cot we have found for which the Cot Wrap® bumper is unsuitable is the Leandro cot.

Q

What are the measurements/dimensions of the Cot Wrap® bumper?

A

The 4-sided Cot Wrap® consists of one piece which is 460cm long and 27cm high. The 2-sided Cot Wrap® consists of two pieces of 150cm long and 27cm high.

Q

Is the Cot Wrap® bumper suitable for cribs?

A

The 4-sided Cot Wrap® can be used on a crib provided that there are bars on all four sides - please see our Youtube channel for installation videos (https://www.youtube.com/user/Safedreamers).

Many of our customers have used a 2-sided Cot Wrap on a crib with open ends, it will cover three of the four sides. We do not have an installation video or instructions for this, but if you intend to use the Cot Wrap on a cot/cot bed with closed ends, it may be a good option.

Q

Is it possible to use the 4-sided version on a solid ended Cot?

A

Yes, but as the solid ends lack bars to wrap the Cot Wrap® around, the product will have to sit on the outside of the solid ends. If your main purpose of using the Cot Wrap® is to keep arms, legs and dummies inside the cot, this option may work for you.

Q

What is the Cot Wrap® bumper made from?

A

The inside surface (which sits next to the baby) is 100% cotton. The inner and outside surface is 100% polyester to provide cushioning.

Q

Can the Cot Wrap® bumper be washed?

A

The Cot Wrap® bumper is machine washable at 30 degrees. As it is fast drying, there is no need to tumble dry. Make sure that the velcro fastenings are in place before washing to avoid snagging.

Q

What other measures should I take to ensure my baby is sleeping safely?

A

FSID (Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths) and the Department of Health provide the following recommendations:
