Cot to Bed Safety

An increasing number of babies and toddlers are sustaining injuries from falling out of cots and beds. This is due to either not recognising the appropriate time to move a baby or young child out of a cot, or a baby or young child being placed too early in an adult bed.


The new Cot to Bed Safety brochure and smart app provide information on when to move a child from a cot to a bed, what type of bed to use, and how to provide a safe environment for a child.


Cot to Bed Safety brochure is only available as a PDF and as an app for iPhone and Android, plus a short video.


The smart phone app can be used in a choice of five languages including English, Chinese, Hindi, Vietnamese and Arabic.
