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.

I don't think they are so much of a problem until the child can roll around and by then they are old enough to move their head if they can't breath. My daughter is 17 months old and her bumper is still on her crib. I know a lot of moms in my playroom have theirs still on too. As long as you put the baby in the middle of the bed to start with, they should be fine. My daughter moves all around during the night and the bumper hasn't been a problem. In the end, it is your personal choice.

Ditto, its never been a problem for us! I would suggest a sleep positioner in the beginning but now that May can roll she always sleeps on her belly, she rolls all over the crib at night but the bumper has never been a problem. If you decide not to put it in the crib you could try finding something like a woven basket and lining it with the bumper....just an idea
