Will you have a crib bumper in your baby's crib? I know there have been studies that it can increase the risk of SIDS while other studies have shown crib bumpers do nothing to increase the risk.
We will have a crib bumper, it came with our set (Nojo Jungle Babies). But, I will be BFing so Maddox will be co-sleeping with me atleast till he sleeps through the night. So it will be MANY months before he sleeps in his crib.
Yes I will be using the bumper. Baby will be in a bassinet in our room for the first 3 months anyway and by then I won't be so worried about it. Plus they are not even sure on any increases in SIDS bumbers might cause and I plan on taking other precautions.
I've always used a bumper and never have any problems. It's secured tightly and they get checked on often and we use moniters... so I really dont have any fear, besides when/if they roll in their sleep I'd rather them roll into something soft instead of the hard wood of the crib and just roll them back into the middle. I remove the bumpers when the baby starts using it as a step to help get out of the crib.
Over here they recomenned you dont use one by the time the child can sit up unaided.
Logan when into his cot full time at 6 months old exactly, he sat up at 4 months unaided & was able to crawl at 6 months so we never used one.
I'll buy one as it comes with the set we want, for this baby but she too wont be going a cot until she's 6 months old, so not sure if we'll even be able to use it
