A bed guard should not be utilized after the child turns 5, as children above the age of 5 are stronger and bed guards are unlikely to be able to sustain the weight and the strength of an older child. However, some children are likely to benefit by the usage of bed guards beyond the age of 5 if they are prone to sleeping near the edge of their bed or if they are active sleepers and move more frequently in their sleep. Some parents may take comfort in having a bed guard in place for longer than the recommended age of 5 depending upon the child’s development.

Bed guards are broadly used to reduce the child’s risk of falls. However, sometimes, bed guards introduce other types of risks rather than preventing a child from falling of the bed. Low quality bed guards can cause harm to the child by trapping a child’s neck in the gaps between the bed guards and the mattress or bed. This factor is estimated to restrain the bed guard market globally. However, the risk can be significantly reduced by utilizing the bed guard with the correct bed, in the right way, for the right person.
