  • I would reccomend taking the bumper out they are not very safe ... they make breathable bummpers that I've seen at babies r us I'm sure you could find them online if you googled it... and honestly i believe that she may do the same thing with a positioner ... hope that helps

  • MY DD is 2 and her bumper is still in her crib. It stop her from hitting her head and it blocks some of the light from the hall way that she needs on when she goes in for bed.

  • My son also had sleep apnea.I was told by docs to keep the crib clear of everything and roll a blanket to put behind his back (while he was on his side and after he fell sleep) to keep him from rolling to back or stomach.
