Experts are now saying that bumpers — plush fabric that lines the inside of cribs, traditionally a baby must-have — are largely unnecessary now that crib slats have to be narrow enough to keep babies from falling out. And more than that, they could be dangerous.
The American Academy of Pediatrics now urges parents to skip the bumpers because they A) do little to prevent infant injury, and B) increase the risk for suffocation and entrapment. Chicago went one step further and banned baby bumper sales altogether.
Well Skip Hop has come up with a solution for parents who want the style of baby bumpers without the potential risk.
The Skip Hop Complete Sheet bumper-free bedding.
