Why do they sell crib bumpers if they're unsafe?

My kids' crib bumpers sat in the closet and were never used. What's the point?

  • formula is not unsafe! its not as good but its safe as long as it's used correctly! as for crib bumpers, some people think their baby will get stuck between the bars.

  • Ive heard having them is safe and not having them is safe.. they sell a 'breathable' crib bumper type thing now..

  • my baby did get stuck in the bars... my NEPHEW got stuck a well... to the point that his leg was purple... we ended up having to break the crib. it happens. i think they should make something like mesh to go around, or even a crib without the bars... that'd be great.

  • Most crib sets come with them, though, so sometimes you don't have a choice. My mom made my kids'.

  • I have a breathable bumper. I love it! It has a mesh type material on it that the baby can breath through. I tried it too just to be safe. Keegan is 8 months and it's works well. It helps stop him from trying to climb out of the crib b/c it colaspes.
