Crib Bumper??

So my son is a wild one when he wakes up. He likes to play and crawl around in his crub but sometimes he gets himself kinda stuck in the corner and im scared he is gunna suffocate himself. So what I am wondering is if a crib bumper is really important or can I take it out?

  • You can take it out. In fact, with a baby like this, I would definitely take it out.

  • we didnt use one for very long at all. the only reason we did use it at all is cuz my son would stick his hands or feet through the bars in his sleep and i didnt want him to hurt himself.

  • I took my daughters bumpers out around 4 months when she was rolling all over the crib. They are so beautiful, it sucks that we only used them for such a short time.

  • My son never used one because he would snuggle up to it and we were scared he would suffocate. Also when they get older you are supposed to take it out because babies can use them to climb up on to help them climb out of the crib.

  • take it out, i found my son once stuck under his, luckily he was screaming and i checked on him right away, they are never going back in there. he does get his legs stuck thru the bars of his crib sometimes in the morning, but thats alot safer than those bumpers
