Is the padding around this crib safe?


I know aap says no bumpers on cribs. I just want to make sure. I received an old fashioned swing crib from a friend.

That looks very thick I can't imagine there'd be much, if any airfliw through the crib. Is it like that the whole way around?

Looks pretty secure to me so I don't see why it should be an issue. My midwife checked baby's bed when we brought him home and said as long as the bumper wasn't a risk and was tied on tight then it could stay. Newborns can't roll anyhow. Just watch how baby positions herself as she gets older and decide if the bumper needs to come out or not.

Very pretty but i would remove...bumpers pose a risk to babes and any risk however small is not worth it imo. Fsids warn against them too.

Gorgeous crib but if it were me i wouldnt risk it either. No matter how tightly it's tied on I'd be concerned about airflow into the crib.

Bumpers are always a suffocation risk, I wouldn't risk it personally!

I use mesh bumpers because my babies have been known to get a leg stuck in the crib rails otherwise. My babies can put her faces right up against it and breathe just fine. I am going to mention that all of my five have been caught in the morning with their faces up against the (breathable) bumpers. If the bumper wasn't breathable and they didn't know any better, they might not move away and could suffocate. That's the thing. Most babies will realize they can't breathe. They will/can turn their heads away. Some will not. I personally am not willing to take the chance that my baby will know to move away from the bumper. Just something to consider before putting your baby in it!

Its not just suffocation its risk of getting tangled in it. A baby here managed to pull the bumper from the strings and get it wrapped around his neck and died. The strings were still securely attatched to the cot when his parents found him.
