My daughter will be three months old next week. We have not used any bumpers in her crib due to what I've read about them, but lately I"ve noticed she is "inching" her way to the top of the crib and is hitting her head against the wooden slats. I am concerned because I don't want her to get hurt. It's becoming a problem. Is it Ok to put the bumpers back in the crib, therefore eliminating this problem? But on the other hand, I don't want to worry about SIDS or any other things that can arise with using them. Does anyone use them in the crib? Any advice would be great at this point!!!!!Answer Question

Bumpers are safe providing they are securely fastened to the crib slats (double knot the strings before tying).
I used an infant body positioner to keep my children from rolling over while sleeping until they were old enough to roll over and back proficiently--around 6-7 months. Keeping pillows and blankets/comforters out of your daughters crib--just using a fitted sheet over a waterproof mattress protector and "sleep sack" on cool nights is all she needs at this age and will eliminate accidental suffocation.
