  • Whenever they can get on hands and knees. Or pull up....really about 4 or 5 months old.

  • At any age since they aren't even supposed to be in the crib. It's a SIDS risk and then once babies can stand they can use it as leverage to climb out of the crib.

  • I took mine out when she started to play with them. Now I know for next time that they are a waste of money. Once the baby can roll around enough to use them as a bumper, they are too old to have them in the crib and are now a safety hazard.

  • Exactly what MoonLover said. We never put them in our crib for those reasons... they have lots of risks... suffication risk because they make them so thick these days, and if they come untied they can strangle and when they get older they can use them to stand on and climb out of the crib... they are just more of a hazard than a safety thing.
    We got bumbers with our brib set and we took it apart and made a window valance and pillows.
