Best Baby Anti Roll Pillow and Accessories for a Safe Night’s Sleep

Babies, toddlers, and even children have the tendency to roll out of bed at night. For this reason, you may want to invest in an infant pillow wedge, as well as bed rails and other accessories to keep your baby from rolling. Find the best match for your baby by reading this buying guide.

Make sure the baby and the mom are sleeping soundly with the baby anti-roll pillow in place!

All of us roll – including adults. This is pretty much the reason why we don’t usually sleep with our baby. We fear that we might just roll over them, so we give them their own beds. It seems safer this way, particularly if you add an infant pillow wedge in the mix.

Here’s a news flash, though: babies also roll. They roll perhaps even more than adults – and they don’t realize they’re doing it. They’re explorers right now, and they don’t yet have full control over their body – which is why they might dangerously fall over the side of the bed while the parents are sleeping soundly.

To prevent your precious one from getting injured, you may want to invest in some safety measures – such as a baby anti-roll pillow or some guard rails for beds. Let’s see how we can help them make sure they wake up in the same general area they fell asleep in – namely, their bed.

Choosing the Right Baby Anti Roll Pillow

A wedge pillow for infants will help your infant hold their head straight and prevent them from shifting away from their position. Plus, depending on how you position those pillows, it will stop your baby from rolling off the bed by creating a barrier.

Here are some features that you might want to consider when buying a baby side sleeper wedge pillow.

  •      Filling

You want the infant pillow wedge to be comfortable and fluffy – but at the same time, you also need to consider the fact that a child is more prone to developing allergies. Since their immune system is still under development, you might want to invest in a pillow wedge with hypoallergenic filling.

  •      Firmness

As stated, babies move around a lot – so the chances are that an infant pillow wedge that is not firm enough will get flat in no time.

Most of these pillows and bed bumpers for kids are placed under the mattress to prop the margin of the bed, so it might not pose a suffocation hazard for the baby. Still, if it gets flat, then the mattress will no longer be propped – which means your baby may easily roll off.

  •      Cover

Some baby side sleeper wedge pillows come with their own non-detachable covers while others have covers that can be removed and washed separately. If you don’t want to wash the whole pillow each time your baby drools on it, then you might want to go for a wedge pillow for a baby whose cover can be easily removed and washed separately.

Picking the Guard Rails

Pillows are important, but some guard rails for beds will also be something to carefully consider. They provide an easy way to step up your baby’s safety, and are highly suggested if a baby is to spend any time at all on an adult bed. Here are a few features that you might want to keep in mind when purchasing a baby guardrail as a baby shower gift.

  •      Bed Suitability

Not all bed rails are suitable for all types of baby beds. Before buying a rail set for your baby’s bed, you may want to double check for dimensions and whether this rail guard fits the specific ted bed base or not.

  •      Gaps

A baby bed guard needs to be carefully secured against the bed, ensuring that there are no gaps left. Your child may still roll, so if there are any gaps between the bed and the rail, your child may potentially get stuck in them. Make sure there are no hidden gaps between the beds and the rail.

  •      Foldability

If you live in a small apartment, it might be a good option to look for foldable rails. Not only will you be able to store the rail compactly when it’s not in use, but you can also easily lower it down so that you won’t damage it when you are handling your baby. Still, you may want to make sure that a child can’t operate the rail on his or her own – and eventually they all learn to do it, just try not to miss the time when they do.

  •      Mesh Fabric

Every bed rail should be made predominantly from mesh, in order to prevent your child from getting injured. Furthermore, the mesh is breathable – so it will allow for ventilation in case the child rolls face-front into the baby guard rail.

Having said that, keep in mind that some bed bumpers for kids are basically drool traps. And if your kid loves to chew onto the crib rail cover, there’s bound to be a lot of drool. Therefore, you may want to choose a fabric that is not only easy to clean, but easily dried as well.

  •      Rail Cover Color

When you are buying a baby guard rail, make sure that the pattern and the colors are suitable for your baby’s room. It may not seem that important, but certain colors and patterns will keep your child distracted or help them sleep – so make sure that you choose wisely.
