I got my crib bedding set yesterday and it came with a bumper. I looked up articles on the internet about how safe they are and so far I have seen that they are not only unnecessary but also can cause suffocation. I hate to waste it (it's very pretty) so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of other ways it can be used.
My parents used a crib bumper for both my sister and I, till we moved onto a big girl bed at about 2. We had no problems and are fine. I researched and found this info if you are going to use a bumper...
"if you are using a bumper always be sure that the strings used to attach the bumper are no longer then six inches long."
(I'd make sure it's tied tightly to the crib as well) Or if you're worried about bumpers then get one of the mesh breathable ones.
I didn't post this to start a debate. I just wanted some ideas. If you want to use a bumper in your crib then by all means, go for it. Don't try to tell me that I'm wrong for believing they aren't safe.
