  • Do you mean bumpers? They're not recommended, because of suffocation risks, and once Baby can pull himself to standing, he can use the extra height to climb out and fall.

  • We use ours and our son has been fine.. We tried taking them out and he stopped sleeping through the night so the doc said it was fine to put them back in... I should note that we have a round crib so there are no corners for him to wedge himself into.

  • I used something called a "Breathable Bumper" in my baby's crib. It's kind of like mesh, and it just keeps him from getting his legs and arms from getting stuck in the slats.

  • we have it too but i dont use son is only 9 weeks old so he doesnt move around very much yet i might use it later on when he gets a bit older that way he wont get his feet stuck in between the bars...

  • I wouldn't risk it. Not really worth it. When my daughter got older and rolled around all over her crib, she would get her arm or foot stuck in the slats, so I bought one of those breathable bumpers also, like "jacksmom" said above. It worked great.
