Crib bumpers...Yes they are cute but the idea of me not being able to see my baby's breathing when i glance to check on him scares the ish out of me... I had a nephew who passed from sids and i am very paranoid and haunted by that incident .I know bumpers arent the cause but like i say...i need to be able to see my baby at all times and angles

thats why we have "breathable" bumpers, keeps him from getting his leg stuck and i can still see him

When you glance over at him?? Are you a dwarf? Because crib rails are pretty high and you have to 'look in' on the baby.

No and not funny..cribs have  bars with gaps that you can see through...does your baby have custom solid sides on his or whats your problem

I hated crib bumpers because it was a PITA to change the mattress sheets.

They now say only put a sheet on the mattress and that is all--no quilts or bumper pads. Definitely leave out the stuffed animals and any pillows. Use a sleepsack instead of a blanket.
