The Dangers of Crib Bumper Pads
Crib bumper pads have been around for a long time. Once they were thought of as a necessary safety tool for new parents. They believed that the bumper pads would help prevent their infant from hitting his head against the crib rails. Today, health experts and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome awareness groups recommend that parents do not use bumper pads at all. Standard bumper pads can cause a greater risk for your child’s safety. They can lead to suffocation, strangulation and even death.
Still parents often encounter problems regarding crib safety. Older cribs have slats that may be too far apart and babies can get their limbs stuck in between them. When we transferred our youngest from the bassinet to his crib he ended up in that situation. He managed to wiggle himself around until he had one leg sticking out of the crib and his arm and side were stuck in between the mattress and the crib. During one particular nap time he did this four times! Of course this scared me half to death and I knew I had to do something.
I knew that there had to be a product that could protect him from the crib rails without the risk of strangulation or suffocation. I had my “ah ha” moment when I found Breathable Baby products.
Breathable Baby crib bumpers reduces the risk of suffocation, keeps your baby‘s arms and legs inside the crib, has collapsible fabric to prevent climbing, promotes airflow and breathability, has no dangerous ties or strings, adjustable fasteners, will move with a drop rail, and can be tucked below the mattress for extra protection.
The mesh material is soft and light. It also fits all standard sized cribs. The first night that I had CJ in his crib with the Breathable Baby crib bumper pads he slept all the way through the night. I also slept easier knowing that he was safe.
This year Healthy Moms is going to have even more fun giveaways by announcing “Our Favorite Things Giveaways.” I will write an article about a product that I purchased myself for either myself or my kids that I absolutely loved. Then as a special thank you to my loyal readers I will give away that same product and again purchase the prize myself.
