Safe Crib Bumpers

Lil Community: Crib Bumper Question

To bumper or not? That is the question LilSugar reader Beaner is asking as she sets up her lil one's crib. She asks our readers for some help in The Pregnancy Posse group.

I've read that traditional pillow-like bumpers attached to the inside walls of a crib can be a hazard to your baby due to the risk of strangulation or suffocation. So instead or registering for one of those (although they are adorable!), I got the BreathableBaby Breathable Safer Bumper. It's a thin piece of mesh material that fits snug against the railings.

It's supposed to be safer, but with all the talk about crib safety, is it better to use or safer not to use? Will it prevent baby's limbs from going through the slats, or will they end up getting tangled in it just as they would a traditional bumper?
