Hi Ladies,

I am hoping I can get some suggestions from you because I an honestly lost. Tiago was sleeping in his crib very well at night, however, he began moving ALL over. His arm had gotten stuck betwen the bars one night and he woke up screaming so we put on the breatheable mesh bumpers. All was fine...until he began REALLY moving... now he bangs his head on the sides HARD! So we put on regular humpers hut when I put him in there at nap, he out his face right up against them (how he normally would have banged his head. My problem is if it is through the night he xan suffocate himself. So right now, he is sleeping in a play pen in our room because we have no idea how to keep his head and arms and now breathing safe in hiscrib. I certaintly never thought at 5 months he woukd be so darn active lol. Any suggestions??

I would just keep the breathable mesh up and let him bang his head. Wyatt does the SAME THING(such weirdos!) and we just let him. He's not going to bang his head hard enough to do any REAL damage and if it's hard enough to hurt him- well- it's his first life learning lesson! but yeah- we had the same thing also with the legs and arms coming out the bars. I actually just stuck a blanket and tucked it in on the side so it created a thin bumper-like thing to stop little limbs from coming out.

I think they are getting old enough that the worry about bumpers and blankets has dropped significantly. I guess it just depends on your kid. My feeling is that when your kid is more active- like moving/scooting/rolling around all night- they are at the tail end of the worry. But to each their own!

I have a breathable bumper up in Carter's bed. He moves all over the crib and bumps his head as well. He won't hit it hard enough to hurt himself. =)

I have no bumper per the recommendation. Brock has gone through all the getting stuck and screaming without injury. No matter where we put him down he is moving all over the crib and end with his face and head pushed against the sides. He is just fine that way and has been for about 3-4 months. I personally do not believe in any bumpers or blankets in the crib and we are following just baby and tight fitting sheet until 1 years old.
