Choose safety bed rails by looking for rails that not only prevent a child from rolling off the bed, but that also don't create a safety concern of their own. Safety bed rails should fit securely against the bed, with no space between the rail and the mattress.
Bed rails are often used when transitioning a child from a crib to a bed. They provide a sense of security as well as safety. Safety rails surround the bed, with no gaps between the mattress and the bedding. These are the best options for small children since they prevent them from getting stuck between the mattress and the rail.
