Airwrap or bumper??


What is everyone else using? Of course a bumper looks lovely ect but im scared of little one getting his arms/legs stuck so iv sort of become obsessed that we need an airwrap but then i see bumpers and want to buy them too

Bumper pads in a crib increase SIDS risks. So I wouldn't be using them . They are cute but not really safe

We received a matching bumper in our bedding set with our first baby, but once he could scoot around in the crib we changed to the stretchy, breathable bumper to avoid suffocation. We also found it is easier to get the mattress in and out of the crib with the breathable one than it is with the bulkier one (which is helpful when changing wet sheets in the middle of the night!).

Edited to add: I am not familiar with what an air wrap is, but the breathable bumper I am talking about is one that's recommended in place of a regular bumper to avoid suffocation/SIDS concerns. Maybe that's the same thing?? I tried not using anything around the crib rails but my son got his leg horribly wedged between them and his pacifier would fall out of the crib all the time, so we found the breathable bumper to alleviate those problems.

I'm going with air wrap as I've heard bumpers are a bit risky when baby starts wriggling about the cot xx

mesh bumper, which I assume is what an airwrap is? Sure those bed sets are cute, but completely unnecessary and ridiculously expensive (IMO).

Used an air wrap with DD and it was brilliant. She used to get limbs stuck. Washed really well and totally breathable but she never got stuk against it.

I used a bumper with dd, and will be using one this time to. As long as they are secure, its fine.

Using nothing like we did with DD. The less in the crib, the better.

I have to agree with previous posters, Bumpers can be very dangerous. I would consider the Air wraps, have to look into them a bit more...
