F.A.Q.’s

Does the Bednest fit all types of beds?

Yes, both slatted bases and box springs – but please contact us if you have a specific question.

.

Does the Bednest fit with my bed? How high / low does it have to be?

The Height of the Bednest is easily adjustable and can be used with beds, where the top of the mattress is not less than 300 mm and no more than 660 mm from the floor.

Why are safety belts in the box?

The safety straps are intended to attach the Bednest to the parental bed, so that you can create a safe bridge function between the Bednest and the Parental Bed. The safety straps prevent the Bednest from sliding away.

My bed is 69 cm high, does the Bednest fit?

We use a max height of 66 cm. However, we have now understood from several customers that the Bednest also fits a bed of 69 cm with a small adjustment. They lay a wooden plank under the frame that is large and stable enough to cover just that little bit of height difference. Note that you always attach the base to the bed with the supplied straps.

Do you also have matching Bednest sheets?

Yes, there are several mattress towels available in our webshop. Note: ordinary crib sheets are too big for the Bednest mattress.

Do you give a guarantee on the Bednest?

The Bednest has a warranty of 12 months, but please contat us if something unexpected happens after 12 months. 

How is my Bednest sent?

In a reinforced transport box, so that your Bednest arrrives safely.

Where can I find the manual?

The manual is always in the box. But you can also download it HERE

Why is a Bednest more pleasant for a baby than a bedstead?

Babies feel more comfortable and are calmer when they feel safe in a small space. Exactly like their mum in the belly. A bed is too big for a baby in the first months, they ‘swim’ in the enormous space around them, making them restless. A safe place, such as a Bednest, offers a well-organized, small and protected space. Pay attention if your child is in the Bednest; they feel with their hands on the fabric sides. That gives them a secure feeling.

How long can I use the Bednest?

The Bed Nest is designed to be used until the baby is about 6 months old. It depends on the length (mattress is 82 cm) and weight (max. 10 kg) of your baby and if your baby can sit without help, can pull himself up, can sit on the knees, then he / she is the Bednest has outgrown and you have to go to a bed as a bed.

Can my baby roll in my bed?

Babies start rolling at an age of about three months and at this stage we advise you to keep up on both sides.

Can I leave the side open if I am not near the Bednest?

No, you should never leave the sides open if you are not there! Always do both sides up!

Is it safe to let the baby sleep with the side down if I am not around?

No, your baby should never be left alone in the Bednest with a side down unless an adult is present.

 

Can I use a bed bumper?

Cot bumpers are not recommended with the Bednest. 

What is the weight of the Bednest?

The cradle alone weighs approx. 7,8 kg. The chassis weighs about 6,1 kg. The complete Bednest in the bag weighs approx. 14 kg.

The cradle: Height 345 mm, Length 860 mm, Width 440 mm, height frame maximum 590 mm to at least 260 mm. Height base with cradle on it is a maximum of 660 mm (top mattress) to a minimum of 330 mm.

Is the mattress waterproof?

It is washable and water-resistant. It is filled with cold foam with a detachable cover.

Where do the Bednest materials come from?

The Bednest is made in Europe from high quality beech wood that comes from responsibly managed forests (FSC quality mark). The wood is treated with water-based lacquer. The side panels are made in Europe, and consist of 100% cotton, with nylon and polyester on the inside and outside, the band is made of polypropylene and the corner tabs are made of plastic.

How do you clean the sides?

You put the sides in a closed pillowcase in the washing machine at 30 degrees. Make sure you put the Velcro on each other well! Then you put them wet again around the Bednest frame, so they dry tight and fit well.

How does renting a Bednest work?

If you rent a Bednest, you can be sure that your Bednest is in perfect and clean condition, with a new mattress and new sides.
You can arrange the rent of your Bednest at any time. That may be months in advance, but also just before your due date or even after your delivery. Then keep in mind a few days delivery time.
We advise you to keep 3 weeks before your due date as the delivery date. If your child is unexpectedly born earlier, just let us know! We ensure that the Bednest comes to you as soon as possible.
In the webshop you choose the date that falls 3 weeks before your due date. Automatically, 7 months are added to that, so you know when you have to return the Bednest. The data will also be confirmed to you by email. By the end of the 7 months you will receive an email explaining how to return the Bednest. Please note that you always keep the transport box for the return shipment. You can tick the desired extra accessories in the webshop. These are then delivered together with your Bednest.
Make sure you keep the shipping box well for the return shipment.

Do I get a refund if I send my rented bed nest back earlier?

No sorry. From experience we know that the 6 to 7 months are really necessary to let your child sleep in the Bednest.

What should I do if my rented Bednest is damaged?

You do not have to do anything for minor damage due to normal use. However, if there are any damages that threaten the safety and functions of the Bednest, you should call us directly at 035 73 705 87 or email info@bednest.nl. Your Bednest must always be in good condition to ensure safety. The repair costs for more serious damage are passed on to you.
To prevent any costs, you can opt for insurance when renting the Bednest.

 

Can I also use other cradle mattresses in the Bednest?

No, that is not allowed. Only use a mattress supplied by Bednest. They are specially designed with the correct length, height and width to guarantee safety. Make sure that the mattress never exceeds the maximum height as indicated in the cradle. So never put blankets, towels or other material under the mattress, so that it exceeds the maximum indicated height.

Is it wise to put stuffed animals in the Bednest?

We understand that it looks very nice, all those cuddly toys in a cradle. Yet it is urgently advised not to put cuddly toys in a cradle with a baby. Whether it is the Bednest or any other baby bed. It impedes air circulation and can therefore be very dangerous.

Does the Bednest have a rocking function to lull my baby to sleep?

No, the Bednest has no swing function. That was deliberately chosen after thorough research. Sleeping a baby asleep does not necessarily contribute to the quiet sleep of your child. Often the cradling of your child arises out of pure despair of parents, because they find all kinds of ways to comfort their child. Of course it often helps, but then the child gets used to falling asleep in this way. As a result, you, as a parent, are constantly on the move and are no longer due to your rest or sleep. It is much better to immediately teach your child to sleep well in their own crib. That also offers the parents peace and night’s rest. To offer that night’s rest while the child is reassured in his own bed and learns to sleep there, the folding side of the Bednest has been designed. The bridge function also ensures that you as a parent can lie relaxed with your child.

Can I return the Bednest if I changed my mind?

You can have the Bednest at home for 14 days. We are convinced that you will be very happy with this special cradle. If you have changed your mind, no problem! Provided everything is in its original packaging and unused and undamaged, you may return it free of charge. Send us an email to info@bednest.nl and we will arrange it for you!
