Bumper pad? Yes or no?


I keep hearing mixed reviews.. whether bumper pads in the crib are good or bad.
Are you going to use one (or have used them with your previous babies)??

Pros and cons?

I'm not going to use one in my crib. With all of the new research done on SIDS I really don't want to risk it. It's much more likely the baby will be smothered by a bumper than be seriously injured smacking his or her head on the rails of the crib.

oo! My sister in law pointed these out! I like the idea! Very similar to the netting of the pack-n-plays!

I did not use them with my dd. When I had my son, I used them once he could roll and lift his own head(around 3-4months). He is 19 months now, and I still have them. Some people like them, and some don't.

I'm using ours until I lower her crib a notch. To me she's so close to the top it's like a basinette or moses basket. We also have a baby monitor that does the movement/breathing, so if anything were to go wrong we'd know.

I'll be using the breathable bumpers. I'm worried about an arm or leg getting stuck (I happen with my sister when she was a baby, she need to wear a brace to correct the damage).

I used one with dd and will be with this one as well. He won't even be in his crib until around 3 months anyway.

I never used them with my first daughter but the crib set I bought for this baby has bumper pads in them. This baby like my daughter will be in my room for the first 3 months, so I might use them after that, or just use them to make the crib look pretty when my baby is not in them. I do know they make breathable bumper pads which I looked into with my daughter.
