Crib Bumper

Search on crib bumper on the net gives you articles on the danger of using crib bumper (here and here) and how the danger outweighs the benefits. The main reasons they suggest parents buy crib bumper are - to increase safety of their crib, worries of bumps and bruises if the baby hit the slats and cute matching bedding set that makes for a nice coordinated nursery.

However, comments from parents (found here) suggest that most of them left the crib bumper on due to many reasons, some said it helped their babies sleep better, while others said the crib bumper avoided their babies from getting bruised from hitting their head, arms or legs on the slats. 

What are your reasons to either use or remove the crib bumper? I left the crib bumper in my girl's crib until she moved to a toddler bed when she was about 2 years old. I made sure to knot the ties on the bumpers so it could not be easily removed. Furthermore, she used to push herself until the corner of the crib at nights (I suppose that was her fav sleeping spot), so the bumper provided protection to her head.  

I made another crib bumper for a friend's baby last week (read about the crib bumper for my sis's lil girl here) I loveeee how this fabric from Ikea turned out.. *grin*
Size: 380cm x 21cm (custom made to fit her crib)
My only dismay is the ties :( I just have no patience to sew thin ties, so I decided to go with ribbon instead. But the crib bumper would have been perfect with mathing cotton ties.. uhuhuh *sigh*
