1 Bump

At what age of the baby, do you remove the bumper from the crib? Our son just turned 10 months. He has been standing up in his crib for a while and keeps bumping his head on the crib. Thanks.

  • I never had a bumper because I heard they were a suffocation hazard.

  • We kept ours on until he grew out of his baby bed. I don't know if that is what most people do but...

  • P.S. We are expecting a second son due in June, and they are going to be 15 months apart. Thus, we are trying to decide if we are going to need a second set of crib bedding or if the youngest can use the current bedding instead.

  • I never removed it. My Son loved to snuggle against it at night and he would have permanent indents on his head if I ever removed it! LOL!

  • SimplyErathy or anyone else whose kids are very close in age, did you have two different crib bedding sets or were you able to use just one? Just curious. That maybe a silly question, but I don't really know whether or not we are going to need a second crib bedding set. Thanks.
