My 10 month who sleeps in a sleeping bag constantly knocks her dummies out of the cot then cries for me to find them. We are considering using a mesh bumper to keep the dummies from falling out. What are your thoughts? Thanks

Hi Molly,

Thank you for contacting Red Nose with your question

Red Nose does not have any information specifically about mesh bumpers.

However there are some mesh bumpers that are padded & Red Nose would recommend not using them, due to the risk of baby’s face being covered &/or the older child using them to help them climb out of the cot.

If you do use this product, ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions in relation to installation to reduce the risk of babies becoming entrapped.

Thanks,  Kasey, Red Nose
