Breathable Crib Bumpers
Posted 17 August 2012 - 02:14 PM
I was (am) extremely cautious (paranoid) and have our 6 month old in a crib with only a sleep sack and sheet. He keeps nudging himself into the bars until his head is pushing right against them. I'm moving him several times a nap/sleep but somehow he ends up back up there. The other morning he woke up with a red line from the bars on his little forehead and I'm sure a wicked headache. I'm really hesitant to add anything to the crib but feel for the wee guy.
Has anyone tried the breathable bumpers? Would they help and are they worth the $?

There are those bumpers that wrap each bar individually that you can find, I forget what they're called, those might provide a bit more cushioning without the risk of traditional bumpers. They tend to be rather expensive though, and if you wanted more of a barrier type later on, you'd have to buy a different set again. Oh, I just googled it - they're called Wonder Bumpers.

I think they would prevent your little one from getting up against the bars - at least there's something keeping the baby from it - they are definitely not as thick as the old time bumpers but they help.
