My daughter is 8 weeks old and she seems to do a lot of moving around in the crib. She is a tummy sleeper and has been since she was 2 weeks old. She likes to move to the edges of the crib and lean on the bumper pads. I am worried that she is going to get her face smooshed into the bumper pad at some point. She is able to turn her head from side to side and we have a motion monitor on her crib that has an alarm that will go off if she stops breathing ever....hopefully it'll never go off!!!! Should I take the crib bumper out of the crib so she can't lean up against it (which means she could possibly end up leaning against the hard wood rails!) or should I leave them on there so she isn't leaning her head and body against the hard wood rails and just keep a close eye on her?
