Whether your child moves around in their sleep or stays in one position all night, bed rails are important for added bedroom and sleep safety. Installing bed rails on your little one's bed will provide an extra safety barrier that will help both you and your child sleep peacefully at night.
Here are a few benefits of bed rails that will help you and your toddler have a good night's sleep:
Fall prevention: While children are transitioning into different bed types, bed rails provide a safety barrier to help avoid potentially dangerous falls while sleeping as they get used to their new sleeping environment.
Security & Comfort: A large benefit of bed rails is the feeling of safety and comfort. They offer reliability by acting as a wall, similar to your little one's experience sleeping in a crib. This can be important for children and their families, as they can sleep better at night knowing that their loved ones are safer and more comfortable in their new bed.
