Updated: Dec 13, 2018
Important Safety Information
Recent media reports have made mention of unsafe portacots. This is quite alarmist and is causing unnecessary concern amongst parents about the safety of portacots.
Portacots provide a safe temporary sleeping environment!
The recent media reports relate to product assessments undertaken earlier this year and products currently on sale have not been recalled. If the products had been classified as unsafe the Australian Regulator, the ACCC, would have removed them from sale.SAFETY
TIPS ABOUT PORTACOTS
Use products correctly and always follow manufacturer’s instructions
NEVER use an additional mattress
Follow Red Nose “safe sleeping” guidelines
NEVER use broken portacots
Read warning labels on portacots
