IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING

 
 
 
THIS NOTICE ONLY APPLIES TO OLD STYLE CRIBS WITH THE HALF-FOLD SIDE. ALL CRIBS SUPPLIED BY US AFTER NOVEMBER 2015 HAVE BEEN MODIFIED.
 
BEFORE BUYING OR BORROWING A SECOND-HAND CRIB MAKE SURE IT HAS BEEN MODIFIED TO PREVENT THE SIDE PANEL FROM FOLDING IN HALF.
 
Old style Bednests with the half-folding side pose a risk of a baby getting its neck over the half-folding side resulting in rapid death or injury.  IMMEDIATELY STOP USING THE BEDNEST IF IT HAS A FOLDING PANEL CAPABLE OF BEING LEFT IN THE HALF-RAISED POSITION. 
 
A simple modification kit must be fitted urgently to eliminate this risk. To request the free kit send an email to enquiries@bednest.com including the following information:
 
- your name
- delivery addresss
- contact number
- and a photo of your crib 
 
PLEASE REMEMBER TO LET US KNOW YOUR ADDRESS WHEN REQUESTING THE KIT OTHERWISE WE WILL NOT KNOW WHERE TO SEND IT.
 
ALSO PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW SHOWING HOW TO FIT THE KIT AND THEN CHECK THAT YOUR SIDE FRAME HAS THE HOLES TO FIT THE SCREWS. IF NOT PLEASE TELL US IN THE EMAIL. 
 
If you are buying or borrowing a crib ask the seller or lender to make sure the crib has been modified beforehand. 
 
 
*** Please watch the video below and check that your crib has the holes shown in the half-fold side panel. If it does not have holes please email us for further instructions ***
 
FAQ
 
 
Is my Bednest affected?
 
If your Bednest has a side panel which is still capable of folding in half, then you MUST request a modification kit urgently and not use the Bednest in the meantime. If you are buying a second-hand crib, buy one that has been modified. If you are borrowing a crib make sure the crib has been modified. Ask the seller or lender= to modify the crib or give you their kit so you can apply the modification.
 
Are current or new orders from Bednest affected?
 
No. All Bednests manufactured and rented after November 2015 have been modified already and therefore all current and new orders are not affected. 
 
What is the modification kit?

 
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.
 
I am concerned that I won’t be able to fit the modification
 
The modification is very simple to do – click here for video instructions.  If you are still uncertain, email us at enquiries@bednest.com. 
 
NB: Once you have watched the video please check that your crib has the holes for the screws. If not please contact us for further assistance.

After the modification can I still open the side by my bed to bring baby into bed and then return baby to the crib?
Yes you can, this hasn’t changed. The side panel will still lower onto your bed and act as a bridge. Always read and follow the instructions in the new User Guide, download links in six languages are detailed below.
 
If you no longer have the Bednest
 
If you have sold or loaned the Bednest to someone else, it is important that you pass on this Safety Warning  to the current user / owner. If you have the new owners contact details please send them to enquiries@bednest.com and we will get in touch with them.
