Q  Will The Bed Bumper fit under my  normal sheets?

That really depends on a couple of things –

1) How many Bed Bumpers are you using? If you are using 2, one on either side, then no. We recommend you either use the next size up or use an extra deep fitted sheet. If you are just using one then it really depends on …..

2) How tight your sheets are normally. Cotton jersey or winceyette ones tend to have enough give to fit a single Bumper under but otherwise we would suggest using the next size up or an extra deep one.

Q  I’ve put my bed bumpers onto either side of the mattress, remade the bed and I have  a ‘tent’ in between. Why?

A ‘tent’ occurs when the sheets aren’t big enough. We suggest moving up to the next size or using an extra deep fitted sheet.

Q  If the fitted sheet rides up during the night will the Bumper fall out ?

It is very unlikely as it suggests that the sheets are very tight and therefore the Bumper will be well anchored at the corner and across the top

Q  Will it damage the Bumper if I leave it out on the bed during the day?

No, the Bumper will be fine but continuous exposure to direct sunlight will cause the Bumper to slowly discolour. Any discolouration doesn’t affect the performance of the Bumper

Q  My Bumper has got dirty how do I get it clean ?

If it’s just fluff then we would suggest using either a lint roller or the sticky side of a piece of sellotape (not very technical we know, but it works). If your Bumper gets dirty or your little one has an ‘accident’ on it then either wipe it with a damp cloth or, if really necessary you can wash it through and leave to dry somewhere dry and warm – an airing cupboard is ideal.

Q  I’ve bought a 100cm Bumper but feel happier with more of the open side of the bed being protected. What shall I do ?

You should buy an additional 50cm Bumper. All you need to do is place it end to end with your 100cm piece and it will act as if one continuous piece as the foam ends ‘grip’ each other

Q  If I bend my Bumper into my suitcase for a long flight will it straighten out again once I take it out?

Yes, the Bumper can be bent and compressed into a bag or suitcase for many hours and will bounce right back to shape once you take it out.

Q I’d like to use a Bed Bumper for co-sleeping with my baby. Is it safe and what sizes should I use?

A Yes, it is safe for babies. We would recommend you use the 50cm Bumper Extension pieces for co-sleeping and create a ‘nest’ around the baby by putting one on either side and one across the top (babies have a habit of digging in their heels and pushing themselves up the bed so one across the top will stop them from hitting the headboard). To do this you would need to order 3x 50cm Bumpers
