Bumpers are a SIDS risk. My 9 month old is extremely active and has never injured himself in his bare crib. A bare crib is safest.

There are some beautiful bumpers but I'm worried about their safety so I'm going to buy a breathable cot liner. They all tend to be in white but I've found this jungle one on Amazon:

I will be using the air wrap I used with Oliver. Personally I know I would freak out every time I put him in the bed with a bumper!

if you do some looking around you can get a few cute mesh ones, i have one from amazon which comes with little ducks on it. you can always buy other bits like cute sheets and stuff to make the cot look pretty.

Bumpers used to be deemed ok for when they were little, and the concern was when they started moving around they would get tangled up in it...but now the concern is having something wrapped round the whole cot can reduce air flow in the cot and there for increase SIDs.

Still debating whether to go with a mesh bumper or nothing myself... After all the info I have read, I simply decided the risk outweighed the necessity of a bumper so I won't bother with them. Plus, the bumpers I wanted were all really expensive for what they are anyway.

The nurse who came to visit us after LO's birth said even the mesh bumpers are not recommended as they decrease air flow in the crib. When LO woke up screaming with arms or legs through the sides of the crib, we put it on and used it for a few months. He was probably 6 or 7 months old then. As a newborn, he didn't budge in the crib so yea totally not necessary then!

I agree. The only reason I would even use the mesh one is when the arms legs start making their way into the slats and getting stuck...

I won't be using a bumper because of the SIDS risk, just not worth it for me. I was in tk maxx today an got a pink airwrap reduced to 10!! Baby is going to be in a gliding crib in our room for 6-9 months, so this will only be used once she's in her cotbed and much more wriggly, but for that price I couldn't resist!!
