We had initially tried out this bed rail on a family trip to Disney World. The hotel provided this bedrail for my son's bed. I had used other safety 1st items before but never really considered them since I can never find the brand at my nearest babies r us or toys r us. When we bought our son his first twin sized bed, we searched for the Safety 1st Secure Top Bed Rail because of our experience with it in Florida. I had to order two of them online through Kmart and we have been so happy with it. Sometimes we catch our son sleeping with his face pressed up against it or his whole body against it. It definitely does what its supposed to. Not onl is it breathable but it holds my son's weight from falling out of bed. Though we remind him that he shouldn't sleep that way, I'm not aure he can control it while he is actually sleeping. We no longer have to worry about him falling out of bed. Great product!
As parents of young children, sometimes they end up in our bed, and since our bed is a queen it was definitely kind of cramped. Making it worse was that, due to my concern about them falling off, we would end up sleeping on the edges ourselves.
Since purchasing the Safety 1st Secure Top Bed Rail, our bed has *felt* much bigger because we have more *usable* space. Now my 2 1/2 year old can sleep close to the edge without me worrying about him falling off - so we all have more room and have more peaceful nights, even when he does end up in our bed!
After I got it properly on the mattress, I was really happy with how snug and secure it is. Especially, I was happy that there is no way for a little arm or leg to get caught in it. It really attaches well and is a very good and very safe design. Also, even when I pushed on it I felt that it would hold under pressure.
Cons: It is a little bit of a hassle to change the sheets as they need to go under the top clamp part. Also, my brother assembled it for me and apparently it wasn't very simple to put together. However, all in all this is a great product and I'm very happy that we purchased it. I anticipate that it will get years of use in our home.
