did you use the bumper on your crib?

Tonight is my daughters first night in her own room and crib. I'm a little nervous about the bumper but she likes to lie vertical rather than horizontal with her feet and head nearly toughing the ends of where ever she is lying. I just checked on her and she is not that way yet but with her face more towards the bumper

  • yes. If she is old enough to roll towards it she is old enough to roll away if it becomes an issue. It's okay! :0) If you are super worried about it they make a plain white mesh one that's breathable you can use.

  • no, i never did. but mainly because i could never get it to tie nice and tight and changing the sheets is a pain in the butt. I had it in the crib at first but after changing the sheets i never put it back in.
    She'll be fine either way!!

  • With my daughter i used the thick bumper and this time around I got the breathable bumper and i feel much safer. I got mine from but you can find them in other places.

  • I used a bumper until she was at least a year old.

  • Nope. They have been proven to increase risk of SIDS. Also, for safety reasons, they are not supposed to be used once the baby starts pulling, sitting, standing, etc. If you want to use a bumper to keep her limbs from getting stuck, it is best to use a breathable. You can order them online or buy them at Babies R Us.
