“The Bumpsters were easy to attach and were very secure on the cot. They are well padded so protected baby well. I loved the bonus of air circulating in the cot which was particularly good on summer nights. The appearance was great too and I was able to place them more accurately than my existing cot bumper which is restricted by where the string ties are. Bumpsters compare very favourably against my previous cot bumper and it’s also easier to see baby when checking in on her or seeing her on baby monitor. Bumpsters are very durable and I expect could be used for several children. It will also fit different cots quite accurately so we found this useful when we stayed elsewhere, we brought them with us. The material is very durable and they also laundered well. ”
Lorraine from South Shields, mum to one
"The bumpsters are working great and they look really lovely in the cot. Really happy with them! Thankyou for all your help, and such great service."
"The Bumpsters are gorgeous and I feel much happier knowing that Emma isn't hurting her head and is not able to stick her legs through the bars and get stuck anymore, hopefully she will sleep better at night now."
