Lil Tip: Wonder Bumpers

There's much concern over crib bumpers and SIDS so many mommas have heeded their pediatricians' warnings and removed the decorative accents from their lil ones' cribs. Wonder Bumpers are out to change our opinions by turning the offending items on their side.

Unlike traditional bumpers that tie horizontally around a crib, allowing a baby to become squished between the fabric and the mattress, Wonder Bumpers wrap vertically around each crib rail, leaving space between the rails for air to flow into the crib, and significantly reducing the possibility of SIDS-related issues. The new bumpers feature a reversible zipper, making them easy to remove for cleaning purposes, and providing two fabric choices for the decorator in the family. Available in nine designs, the products are sold in packages of 24 or 36 to suit all crib sizes.

My son always hits his head on the sides of his crib and I always see him with his arms hanging out the sides--needless to say, I still have his bumper pads on. I've got a roller! I like the idea of these pads, but they are really pricey!

These look very cool. What a no-brainer. Vertical all the way. These bumpers have changed my mine about using a bumper because I still don't like to see those cold hard rails.

Aside from looks, I am still not sure why bumpers have always been deemed necessary. My son never had an issue without his and I'm glad I chose not to use it. It makes a cuter window valance for us. But this new bumper is a bit intriguing.

That's interesting, but I still don't think I'll use bumpers of any kind on my baby's crib.
