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*Pin It
