IMPORTANT: NOTICE OF SAFETY INFORMATION
10th May 2016
CPSC and Bednest have issued a voluntary recall notice.
Hazard: The bedside sleepers fail to meet mandatory federal requirements for these products, posing a fall hazard to babies. This relates to the fully opening side panels.
Remedy: Repair - A free modication kit will be sent to US consumers who bought or are currently renting a Bednest manufactured after July 2014. These will be sent from around mid-June 2016.
In the meantime do not use the product with sides in the fully open position.

THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE USA
More than 25,000 parents have discovered the benefits of sleeping close to their baby with the Bednest without the worries or risks associated with sleeping in the same bed. Awarded the 2014 'Consumer's Choice bedside cot' by Mumii voters, the safety of your baby is our main priority. As such Bednest has been designed with more unique features and benefits than any other bedside crib in the world.
ENJOY THE REASSURANCE OF OUR SAFEBRIDGE
Unique to the Bednest, the SafeBridge side panel lowers onto your mattress to ensure there is no dangerous gap between the crib and your bed, meaning you can be confident when bringing your baby into your bed for feeding, care and comfort.
A PERFECT MATCH TO YOUR BED HEIGHT
The Bednest stand can be easily adjusted to 70 height settings for an exact match to your bed - that's up to ten times more setting options than any other crib and means there's no step from the crib mattress to yours. The independent sliders also mean the stand can be adjusted to an angle, which some moms say helps with the symptoms of reflux. IMPORTANT: The head end should not be more than 2 inches higher than the foot end.
TWO OPENING SIDES
The Bednest is the only bedside crib with a second opening side panel to make access to your baby easy even when one side is attached to your bed. This is helpful after any birth - particularly a C-section birth - as there is no need to lift your baby over a closed side. IMPORTANT: Ensure both sides are fully up and secured when the baby is unsupervised.
ONE MINUTE BUILD
Unlike any other crib the Bednest has been carefully engineered to be built in under one minute. It also folds flat in seconds for travel, making it so easy to keep a familiar environment for your baby wherever you go.
The crib can be lifted from the stand to use around the home as a bassinet/Moses basket and with both side panels closed and locked the Bednest can be used as a freestanding crib when you're ready to move your baby into the nursery. IMPORTANT: Stop using the Bednest when baby begins to sit, kneel, push up on hands and knees or pull themself up (max weight 10kgs / 22 pounds.) This is at around 6 months, but each baby is unique.
ENJOY YOUR NEW, RENTED OR SECOND-HAND BEDNEST SAFELY
Always read the warnings and instructions before using your Bednest.
If you have acquired a second-hand Bednest without an instruction manual or have lost the instruction manual you can download a copy in the FAQ page on this website.
Only use a mattress we supply and never add another mattress or padding into any crib as this will increase the height of the sleep surface and reduce the height of the side panels.
We recommend that a new mattress is used for each baby. These are available in our shop page.
Place your baby in the crib on their back to sleep in line with safe sleep advice from the Lullaby Trust and the NHS.
We've received 1000s of fantastic reviews from mums and dads who've loved their Bednests.
"I have completed your online survey, but just to add to that I was totally thrilled with the bednest I hired. I was able to keep my son sleeping in the same room as me up to 6 months, where I know a lot of other mothers reluctantly had to move their child in to another room earlier than they'd wanted, as they grew out of their moses basket so quickly and their cot was too larger to fit in their room. Having the bednest made it so easy to nurse my son during the night, allowing me to pick him up without getting out of bed. This disturbed my husband less and made it so quick and easy to pop my son back in the bednest when his feed was over.
When I have baby number 2 I will be renting the bednest again without a doubt!
I'm very happy for you to use my comments, as I'm a huge fan of your product."
