ATTENTION. SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT

 
FOR NEW ORDERS - ALL BEDNESTS DISPATCHED FROM 30.11.15 ARE THE NEW MODIFIED DESIGN 
 
 
PRODUCT MODIFICATION REQUIRED
 
Concern has recently been raised by some UK experts about the height of adjustable sides of bedside cribs for infants as their movement ability increases. The concern is that there is a small but plausible risk that an infant could move onto or over the side of the crib and suffer injury or death on the side panel if it is left in the half-raised position.
 
As a precaution, Bednest is making a modification kit available which prevents the folding panel being left in the half-raised position.  In the meantime, do not use the folding panel in the half-raised position - only fully raise or fully lower the side panel. Always use the Bednest in accordance with the instructions. The latest User Guide, updated in light of the modification, is available here.
 
All dispatches of new or rental Bednests incorporate the modification.
 
 
WHAT IS THE MODIFICATION?

The simple, self-fit modification locks the side panel so that it is no longer capable of folding in half, effectively making it like the existing non-folding panel. You will still be able to lower the whole panel as a safe bridge to your bed, giving easy access to your baby. 
 
The modification does not require any specialist skills and will take only three to four minutes to complete. The kit consists of two small screws and a screwdriver, and the screws are simply inserted into holes that already exist in the hinge of the folding panel.

The Bednest has been designed around safe sleep, and we remain committed to providing the highest level of safety. The Bednest has been certified by independent testing authorities to the relevant Standards* in the UK and Europe. In addition the Bednest passed the latest U.S. Standard* for bedside cribs, which specifies a minimum height for adjustable sides. Nevertheless because this minimum height is being questioned we feel it prudent to make this modification.
