I have mine on, my sister took her's off because she says her 3 month old scoots around when he is sleeping...Micah does too but he has great neck control and can move his head around, plus he's never scooted into a corner yet..
We just moved her into her crib and I'm seriously trying to figure out what to do. I took her bumpers off before putting her in but as of yesterday she's rolling around in there and I worry she's going to hit her head, especially on the back side (no slats). She already got her arms and legs stuck in the slats once and that was before she was rolling from back to belly so I really don't know what to do. If I get the breathable ones she will still be able to hit her head. We have the AngelCare Movement Sensor monitor so I wonder if putting her bumpers on would be an issue since it detects her breathing but I don't want to solely rely on it to do its job either.
Noah is going to be in the pack n play until we move(which may be as soon as this fall or at the latest next spring). So no need for a bumper. But if I had to make the choice I probably would put one in because Noah likes to crawl backwards on his back and he has already started bumping his head on his changing table(I had to put padding cuz he kept bumping his head while I was trying to change his diaper.
I took mine off but I feel the same way about her hitting her head. She really moves a lot so I don't know which would be better. The risk of her not breathing or hitting her head. It feels like a lose-lose situation.
I just put a breathable bumper on. I'm weaning the swaddle and leaving Evan's arms out so he moves around more. I have found him with his head against the bars, but it didn't look uncomfortable. I have the angelcare monitor too, but if I had a regular bumper on it would still make me nervous. I check the monitor all throughout the night to make sure the metronome thing is still going, even though I know it will beep if it stops. I'm paranoid
Yes my sons crib still has the bumpers, if they aren't there he gets his little arms and legs stuck because he likes to turn sideways while he sleeps. He never ends up with his face anywhere near them but he turns his head if something is in his face anyway so I'm not worried.

Charlie has no bumper. I made it into a window valance & wall hangings. She scoots in her sleep & has her face smushed in the corner every morning. She has never woken up from hitting her head, so it can't hurt that bad.
took bumper off about 2 months in... had to invest in a breathable one because cooper was flipping over on his stomach during the night and getting his legs stuck in the crib slats. it's worked to solve that problem, so far!
