Babies often spend most of their time sleeping every single day. While it’s one of the fastest growing stage for the infants, it’s necessary for parents to pay attention to baby’s sleep. You might ask - What are the common sleeping facts? How to make sure your baby sleeps well? In this blog, let me clear all the question clouds for you.

Make sure the baby sleeps in the same room. Your baby should sleep in the same room with you, but your baby has his own crib or bassinet for at least 6 months. This might help decrease the risk of SIDS. If you are worried about baby getting injured by the crib while they rolling, try to install crib bumper pads - which are cotton pads that go around the edge of the crib - to protect your baby’s head and body.

According to some parents, 27 babies that died over a period of 20 years (a little over one death per year) due to crib bumper pads is not a notable statistic. A much higher number of babies die every year from choking with food, drowning or common diseases.

Certain babies are very active at night and end up bumping their head on the rails or getting their limbs stuck. Although most of these incidents are minor and not life threatening, it can result in keeping you and your baby up all night. Failing to find a better solution, parents often resort to bumper pads, even though they are aware they’re not the safest.

Parents also use the crib bumper pads for their aesthetics. Let’s be honest, they can really make the crib look cooler and cozier.

There is no ban on bumper pads therefore a lot of stores sell these, usually without taking the time to educate the parents on the dangers of using the

If the baby gets stuck in the crib’s slats, he will either try to remove his arm or leg, or make enough noise to get his parent’s attention. Theoretically, there’s no need for bumper pads.

But what about those of us that stay up all night because our baby rolls over too aggressively, hits his head and starts screaming? What about the mom that found her baby with her face planted firmly into the mattress because she got stuck in the rails and couldn’t move?

Baby Safe Crib Bumper Pads are used to supposedly protect newborns from hitting their head on the crib’s slats and from preventing their arms and legs from getting caught between rails. However, many health organizations advise against using the crib bumper pads as a measure to protect your baby, because they are dangerous.

Moreover, the same health agencies do claim there is no evidence crib bumper pads can actually prevent injuries. I take this statement with a grain of salt, since I am yet to find a study that compares the number of injuries in babies that sleep in a crib with bumper pads vs a crib with no bumper pads.

In response to safety concerns, many retailers now sell “breathable” mesh bumpers that allow more air in, though that still leaves the risk of an older baby using it as a step, even if they’re more collapsible.

If parents are really worried about stuck limbs, he recommends attaching a bumper to the outside of the crib. Or just not even bother.

“The safest thing we recommend is just a crib mattress with a fitted sheet and a sleep sack and nothing else,” he says.

Why Are Crib Bumpers Still Sold?

If at this point in the article you’re wondering why crib bumpers are still being sold, we’re asking the same question.

However, some states in the United States have already banned selling crib bumper, and there are plenty of warnings about them.

The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) specifically recommends not putting a crib bumper or liner in your baby’s bed. In fact, they recommend a bare crib. No toys, no pillows, no blankets, no bumpers.

That brings us to our next, and final, point. If it’s not safe to put your baby to sleep with a crib bumper, what is OK for them to sleep with and how can you decorate the nursery in a safe way?

Crib bumper pads are still considered a common baby products , despite years of safety warnings. Parents often use crib bumper pads thinking they are increasing the safety of their child's crib. How will you protect those tiny arms and noggins from bumps without some extra padding? The warnings from safety agencies and advocacy groups are clear, though—crib bumpers aren't worth the risk.


Overview

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the agency responsible for product safety laws and bans, "we strongly believe that the risk of death from padded crib bumpers far outweighs any purported benefits."  https://www.biloban.com/collections/changing-pad-liners

https://www.biloban.com/collections/changing-pad-liners

Crib bumpers became popular in older-style cribs where the slats were far enough apart that a baby's head could become trapped between the slats, posing an entrapment or suffocation risk.

Young agrees with the AAP that crib bumper serve no purpose anyway. “There is no evidence that crib bumper protect against injury,” she says. The slats of the crib are too close together to cause a baby’s arm or leg to be dangerously trapped. Plus babies don’t have enough strength to hurt themselves by bumping into the crib slats.

So when buying items for a baby’s room, for the safest sleeping environment for your baby, remove “bumper pads” from your list, the doctors of the AAP recommend. Already have bumper pads? Throw them away so no other baby is at risk.

The Biloban Crib Bumper gives parents less to worry about while creating a safe and comfy environment for baby to sleep. The Biloban Crib Bumper is now available at Biloban website .

Some other great tips for creating a safe and healthy nursery are to skip composite wood furniture because it contains formaldehyde, solid wood is the safer choice.  Organic crib mattresses are a safe sleeping option, but if you have a conventional mattress, you can cover it with a cover not made of PVC.

Part of the fun and excitement of planning for a new baby is decorating the nursery. Picking out the furniture, wall color, decor and of course the crib bumper for the crib make it all seem real.  With the controversy over the safety of crib bumpers, some new parents feel it is safer not to use them.  Even though they feel it’s safer without the bumpers, not many could deny, the cribs look empty without them.  Some bumper alternatives look strange and are not available with any coordinating bedding.

 

If you can relate to this, I want to share good news about the Fresh Air Crib Liner , part of the Just Born family. This crib bumper alternative is adjustable and fits most cribs with a mesh liner that locks in place and provides fresh airflow for baby.

If you are painting baby’s walls opt for a zero VOC paint and paint as far in advance of baby coming home as possible so there is ample time to thoroughly air out the room. It’s best to go with a bare flooring like bamboo or cork  over carpet and make sure that you do not use products that are treated with Microban because it contains the chemical toxin triclosan.

Your baby’s crib bedding should always keep safe and dirt-free so that there is no hazardous element on their bed. To keep their bedding clean and germ-free, you need to wash their bedding regularly after a specified interval. And, it is imperative to offer them clean and hazardous-free bedding. Besides, their skin is too sensitive to tolerate any intolerable element on their bed. As a concern parents, you have to keep your baby’s bedding dust-free as well as allergen-free to ensure their restful sleep at night. That's why you need to know, how to wash baby crib bedding and how often should you wash them.

The crib bumper is one of the most popular and must-have items in your baby’s bedding. It protects your baby from direct contact with the crib. Besides, it helps your baby keep in place and does not allow him or her to fall from the crib bedding. Baby’s crib bumper also gets stained and dirty. For your baby’s safety and clean environment, you need to wash the bumper as well. So, you should wash your baby’s crib bumper just once a month, and it will do. But before proceeding, make sure there is any hole in the crib bumper or any unwanted stains to remove. Wash the crib bumper in the washing machine but make sure you are using the lower cycle of the machine. Otherwise, it also gets squeaks.

A French favorite, the crib bumper pad is much-loved by new mothers. Its cushioned contours create a thick barrier against drafts, and will keep your baby’s head from hitting the crib posts.

 Not all cribs can accommodate a bumper pad; you should be able to tie a restraint between the head of the bed and the first bar. For example, Combelle beds are ideal for our bumper pads, but Flexa beds are more difficult to adapt.

If you choose to use a bumper pad, we recommend that you find a crib that will allow for restraints to be tied all the way around; these cribs are difficult to find in countries such as Germany, the US, Sweden and Denmark, but they do exist.

Bumper pads come in all sorts of sizes and proportions; the most important aspect to keep in mind is that they should always be tucked between the mattress and the crib frame, to avoid from allowing a baby’s head to get caught between the bumper pad and the frame. As such, all restraints need to be solidly tied to the crib bars.

The maximum length of a bumper pad restraint is 19 cm (7.5 inches), to prevent any risk of suffocation should it come undone. Be wary of promotional photos featuring long, pretty bows — these restraints are likely in violation of security standards.

If you choose a 30-cm (12 in.) high bumper pad, keep in mind that you will not be able to easily adapt it for the lower mattress position (when your baby will be six to eight months old)… and you should never tamper with the restraints to make them longer. If you wish to use your bumper pad for a while, we recommend choosing the 40-cm (15 3/4 in.) high version. Of course, for those with larger budgets or expecting gifts, you can always start with a 30-cm high pad and purchase the 40-cm high version later.

What is a mom supposed to do if her baby is a headbanging contortionist every night? Well, the One-Thought-Fits-All parenting experts all shout that

So do you suffer in silence and watch your sleep slowly drip away?  Or you do use the crib bumpers, struggling with guilt and terror every night?

Neither.

I think you can have your sleep and safety too.

1: They May Contribute to SIDS

This is a legitimate concern.  No one wants to mess with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The theory here (and it is a theory, since no one knows the specific cause of SIDS) is that it restricts the fresh air flow, and that perhaps your baby could re-breathe her carbon dioxide and asphyxiate.

2: The Strings are a Strangulation Hazard

So tie them. TIGHTLY. 

3: They Can Be an Entrapment Hazard

This is also true.   The concern here is that a baby’s head will get stuck between the bumper and the crib mattress and the baby will suffocate.

See this crib bumper style? This is the perfect photo of a Biloban Bumper Pads.  This is not a bumper pad. This is a bumper pillow. 

 

Tie a double-triple knot or use the zipper-designed Wonder Bumpers.

Babies are wriggly little creatures. Even in the depths of sleep, many babies move in a way that would impress a professional contortionist. These slumbering antics might concern parents, though."Can my baby's legs get stuck in the crib bars." is just one question parents may wonder about.

It is somewhat common for babies to get caught in the crib. According to ChildrensMD, babies who are 7 to 9 months old are particularly prone to getting legs or feet stuck in the slats of the crib. Upset and unable to free the limb, these babies will cry until help arrives (and then promptly get the other foot stuck between crib slats). It is a rough situation for everyone.

Although this scenario is concerning for babies and parents alike, the risk of injury from getting stuck in the crib bumpers is relatively minor. According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the space between crib slats can only be 2.38 inches wide or smaller. As long as the crib meets the CPSC standards, a foot or leg might get caught between the slats, but nothing more. The baby's head or torso is not likely to get stuck.

Additionally, the risk of a serious injury, such as a broken limb, is low. As chairperson of the American Academy of Pediatrics SIDS task force Rachel Moon explained to CNN, babies may be uncomfortable with a leg stuck in the crib slat, but the condition is not likely to be life-threatening. It creates an awkward moment for the baby, to be sure, but nothing that should require an ambulance.

Still, getting up 15 times a night to free the child's foot is far from an ideal situation, so many parents consider using a crib bumper. Hey, it is one way to make sure the kid's limbs stay put, right? Maybe not. According to Baby Center, crib bumpers pose a suffcation risk,as they may impede air flow to the crib. Even the mesh liners are not recommended.

The study showed that the deaths and injuries occurred with thick-pillow bumpers, as well as thin bumpers, which manufacturers have touted as being safer than plush ones.

Bumper-related injuries were mostly caused by poor design. For example, near-suffocations occurred because there were no bottom ties, or not enough of them, which allowed the babies' faces to get trapped in the crib bumpers. Incidents involving choking and strangulation resulted from detached bumper ties and decorations, frayed ribbons, and loose stuffing.

Despite the data and warnings of danger, crib bumpers remain popular.

Major health organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recommended against the use of crib bumpers.

Currently, there are no federal regulations regarding crib bumpers, but the state of Maryland banned their sale in 2013 and the city of Chicago did so in 2011.

The authors urge the CPSC follow their lead. "A ban on crib bumpers would reinforce the message that no soft bedding of any kind should be placed inside a baby's crib," Thach said. "There is one sure-fire way to prevent infant deaths from crib bumpers: Don't use them, ever."

The number of infant deaths and injuries attributed to crib bumpers has increased significantly in recent years, leading to new calls for a nationwide ban on the bedding accessory.

Crib bumpers are padded cushions placed inside a crib to prevent a baby's limbs from getting stuck between the slats.


According to a new study published in The Journal of Pediatrics, from 2006 to 2012, there were 23 deaths tied to crib bumpers reported to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) -- three times higher than the average of eight deaths in each of the three previous seven-year spans.

"Crib bumpers are killing kids," senior author Dr. Bradley T. Thach, a professor emeritus of pediatrics at the Washington University School of Medicine and the author of a 2007 study published that first documented crib bumper deaths, said in a statement. "Bumpers are more dangerous than we originally thought. The infant deaths we studied could have been prevented."

For the report, the researchers reviewed CPSC data that showed 48 infant deaths from 1985 to 2012 were specifically attributed to crib bumpers. An additional 146 crib-bumper incidents were reported in which the babies nearly suffocated, choked, or were strangled. The average age of death was 4.6 months; the youngest was just one month old, and the oldest was 22 months.

New York State has officially banned crib bumper pads On Tuesday, August 13, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a package of bills to keep kids safe, including the Crib Bumper Bill, which makes it illegal for stores to sell crib bumpers anywhere in the state of New York. The state also passed Harper’s Law, which requires certain furniture to be tied down to prevent injury in children.

 

Though NYS is just now recognizing the danger of crib bumpers, parents have been concerned about them for years. These bumper pads, which are used to cushion the interior or babies’ cribs, pose a suffocating risk if children fall asleep with their mouths or noses against them. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has strongly advised parents against using them long before NYS’s ban. “Keep soft objects, loose bedding, or any objects that could increase the risk of entrapment, suffocation, or strangulation out of the baby’s sleep area,” the AAP’s website reads. “These include pillows, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, blankets, toys, crib bumper pads or similar products that attach to crib slats or sides.”

 

Cumo spoke about his decision to pass these bills, referencing his own experiences as a parent. “As a father, I know full well that you never stop worrying about your child’s safety, no matter how old they are,” the Governor said, according to New York Daily News. “These measures will help give parents peace of mind at a critical time in their child’s lives and will help ensure that their homes or daycare facilities remain safe and secure environments.”
