Important To Ensure the Safety of Your Baby:
The Bednest is not like traditional Moses
baskets, bassinets or 4 closed-sided cribs, so read this user guide carefully, be aware of the warnings and follow the instructions.
1
2
When the Bednest is used away from your bed, whether on its stand or any other surface, the sides should be fully up and secured.
3
When using for bedside sleeping, always attach the Bednest to your bed as described in this user guide. Ensure that the top of the crib
mattress is at the same height as the top of the adult mattress.
4
When the side panel is used fully open the Bednest must be attached to the bed, you must be in your bed beside the baby and supervising.
If your baby is unsupervised both side panels should be fully up and secured. You need to be awake to be supervising.
5
When using the Bednest crib away from its stand, always place it on a firm flat and level surface on the floor. 6
Do not place another mattress or similar items on top of, or beneath, the supplied mattress. The top of the sleep surface should not exceed
the MAX line shown on the inside of the end panel of the crib.
7
Use of cot bumpers and other padded items, including soft toys, are not recommended within the Bednest as these can be a smothering
hazard.
8
If you need to replace the mattress always use a genuine Bednest branded mattress. Replacement mattresses are available from
www.bednest.com. Bednest has not approved any other mattress.
2
The Bednest is designed to provide a sleeping area for an infant until he/she begins to push up on hands and knees, kneel or sit up or pull
themselves up unaided, weighs 10kgs (22lbs) or is approximately 5 months of age, whichever is sooner. Move your child to another sleeping
product when your child reaches this stage.
9
Never carry the Bednest crib with your baby inside.
When placing your baby in the Bednest, ensure your baby’s feet are near one end of the Bednest as recommended by health professionals.
This is called the ‘feet to foot’ position. Unless directed otherwise by your physician, your baby should be placed on their back to sleep.
10
If you have been advised to tilt the Bednest by your health professional, do not exceed 5cm / 2 inches height difference between the higher
(head) height and the lower (feet) height. Tilt should be achieved by varying the extension of the stand, using the adjustable sliding catches.
11 Never place a cushion or other bolster under the mattress to achieve the tilt you require. Never place items such as books under the legs of
the stand to tilt the stand.
Other young children should not be allowed to play unsupervised in the vicinity of the Bednest. Ensure pets are kept away from the
12 Bednest.
13
Do not position the Bednest in the near vicinity of an open fire or other strong sources of heat, such as electric bar fires, gas fires, etc.
Ensure side panel fabric is properly fitted, with the velcro style fastener keeping it secure around the bottom rail, for example after washing
14 it.

16
Do not use the the Bednest if any parts are missing or broken, contact Bednest for advice. Only use spare parts purchased from Bednest.
All assembley fittings should be always tightened properly and that care should be taken that no screws are loose, because a child could
17 trap parts of the body or clothing (e.g strings, necklaces, ribbons for babies, dummies etc.), which would pose a risk for strangulation.

The crib should be placed on the stand.
When you wish to get access to your baby, for feeding, comforting
or simply enjoying each other’s company, unclip the side panel
closest to your bed, lift and drop the panel onto your mattress.
When you have finished, simply reverse this process to secure the
side panel in the upright position, ensuring it is secured.
When the side is down you must be in your bed beside the baby
and supervising. You must be awake to supervise.
To safely use the Bednest as a bedside sleeper ensure your own
bed is within the recommended height range of 30 to 66cm
(12 to 26 inches) and the side panel when in the open position
overlaps your mattress. The bedside sleeper cannot be used with
beds whose frames protrude from the mattress by more than 3
inches / 7.5 cm. It should be aligned in height so that the side
panel opens to form a flat and level bridge between the bedside
sleeper and your mattress.​
TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR BABY - When the side panel is used fully open the Bednest must
be attached to the bed, you must be in your bed beside the baby and supervising. You must be
awake to supervise.

How to use as a travel crib or to fold flat for storage.
Step 1 Unclip the side panels, lift them up a couple of centimetres, then fold them inwards to lie flat on
the mattress.

pressing the plastic lever towards the centre to disengage the catch. Do this
for both ends. Lift the folded Bednest crib off the stand.

guide the stand down until folded flat. Lock the sliding catches again to hold the stand in its fully folded position.
