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.

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.

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.

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.


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?

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.

WHAT ARE CRIB BUMPERS?

It’s a wild world out there when it comes to all of the baby products on the market! It can be hard to know what’s what, if an item is safe, and what to put on your registry.

Crib bumpers are one of those things you’ve probably seen but might not know much about. So what exactly are crib bumpers?

Crib bumpers are pillow-like walls that sit in or attach to the inside of a baby crib and go around the entirety of the crib.

The idea is that they provide a cushion so your baby won’t hit their head on the slats and a protective wall to keep your baby from getting an arm or leg stuck in-between the slats.

ARE CRIB BUMPERS SAFE FOR MY BABY?

These contraptions known as crib bumpers seem like a great idea, right? You can’t bear to think of your little one accidentally hitting their head on the slats of the crib or getting one of their tiny legs stuck in the cracks.

However, your baby bumping their head or getting a limb stuck might not be as much of a concern as you think.

And your baby bumping their head on the crib or getting a limb stuck isn’t likely to be life-threatening, but there are some pretty significant cons to a crib bumper.

Crib bumpers seem beneficial in theory, but upon closer look, they can actually do more harm than good. It turns out that the potential cons of bumpers outweigh the pros.

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.”

If you have any solid-material crib bumper pads, destroy them. Solid bumper pads can hinder an infant’s breathing and kill a child. Mesh material crib sides are still allowed to be used.

Infant crib bumpers and liners are popular products in baby stores and shopping websites and they’re marketed as protective padding to prevent babies from getting stuck or falling between crib openings or slats. Lined with soft fabric and filled with stuffing, they seem like a smart choice for parents, but these harmless-looking products actually pose a serious safety concern and death risk for newborns and babies who can suffer injuries or suffocate by choking on crib bumper ties or getting stuck in the tight spaces between bumpers, toys, and cribs. Older babies can also usethe crib  bumper to climb out of a baby crib and suffer a serious or fatal fall as well.

Crib bumper pads
are still considered a common baby product
, 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.


Risks

One reason child safety organizations recommend against crib bumpers is that they pose a risk of suffocation.Just like a pillow or thick blanket, crib bumper pads can restrict a baby's breathing if the bumper is up next to the baby's nose or mouth. Suffocation risk is greatest when babies are very young and unable to move themselves away from potential hazards.

A secondary risk with crib bumpers is strangulation. Babies can become entangled in crib bumpers or its ties, or can get between the bumper and the crib. A few crib bumpers have been recalled because of stitching or trim that can come loose. Those loose pieces could cause injury.

The drying process of crib bumper

Sometimes, it is seen that few parents use the dryer to dry their children’s bumper pads. Though the process is fast, it is not recommended by specialists. Through this process, your crib bumpers may damage and lose their softness. The cotton fabric may also damage by the excess heat. Sometimes, they cause skin irritation and allergies to your baby. In this situation, natural sunlight can come into the play. It has no harmful impact on your child’s bumper while drying them. In this process, your baby gets to sleep well on the bed as well. Just make sure all are adequately dried before placing them in your baby’s crib to use.

 

However, yourcrib bumper gets wet frequently. In this case, you can use vinegar and baking soda to remove the stain from the bumper fast. You need to spread the baking soda over the spot your baby made and then soak it with mild hot water. It works well.

While my own children are plenty old enough to be out of harm’s way (huge sigh of relief!), the controversy irks many families who are expecting or have infants at home.  So, we reached out to one of our favorite crib bedding manufacturers – Katy Mimari of Biloban – to get her thoughts both as a Mom and as a maker or adorable crib bedding. According to Katy, “As any expecting parent will find, there seems to be pros & cons to everything involving your child… to breast feed or bottle… to swaddle or not…. pacifier or thumb…. the debates are endless! And at the end of the day, each parent decides on what is best for them and their child. There’s no question that crib bumpers help finish out a crib, it’s like having a comforter & shams on your master bed. The design aspect is there. But there’s also a practical aspect to them, they protect little arms & feet from slipping between the slats of the crib, and keep peeking eyes from seeing you sneak into the room to make sure they are asleep. But remember, you can take them off the first year, and put them back on after that. Or don’t use them at all! It’s truthfully your choice.”


Katy went on to say: “Remember, always secure your bumpers to your crib. And every manufacturer does their bedding differently, so do your research and see what products fit best into your lifestyle & nursery design. crib bumper has several distinct features that set them apart from other companies. First, our bumpers are four separate pieces, so you can choose which pieces to remove if necessary, and it allows you to continue to use them with convertible cribs. Second,  we have slightly longer bumper ties so that they can be tied tight even around the thickest of wood cribs (watch out for short ties that don’t reach around the crib). Third, all of our bumpers are slip-covered. So don’t stress if some kind of icky bodily-fluid gets on them – everything is machine washable”.

Now being a mother myself, who likes to decorate spaces, I was instantly sold by just the look of these bumpers. I mean come on—it’s fun, it’s cute, it’s stylish and what I love most, it’s totally unique! This isn’t a product that you’ll find in your local baby store.

 

After trying this crib bumper out for myself, I just had to share it with you guys.  I truly think Biloban has something really special to offer and I wouldn’t be surprised if this breathable bumper becomes the next trending must-have nursery item.

 

Now let me tell you about my daughter Olivia.  She is what I like to refer to as “The Headbanger” sleep type.

 

Most nights, I can hear her slide and wiggle her way around the crib, usually waking up mid-way through, crying because she just slammed her head into the crib slats.

With over 60 nursery and kids’ room designs to our credit, we think it’s safe to say that we’re asked about Crib Bumpers a lot.  For some parents, the crib bumper is an absolute must.  For others it’s a resounding no-no.  And for many, it’s a hazy gray area of uncertainty.  Today, we wanted to share our thoughts, and more importantly get yours.  Please let us know where you stand on crib bumpers by commenting on this post.


As a mother of two young children, I admit that I used crib bumpers.  The charm of a beautiful bumper is appealing to both my sense of style, and my desire to keep my babies cozy.  From the very first time I put my infant son into his big huge crib, I was happy that I’d opted for a bumper.  However…

Today may be the first day of summer, but it’s not too late for spring cleaning — one that could save your baby’s life. Clean out your crib: no fluffy stuffed animals, pillows, or blankets, and take out that crib bumper .

 

Starting today, June 21, Maryland is banning the sale of crib bumper pads statewide as an important step in making sleep safer for babies and educating parents about safe sleep practices. crib bumper pads offer no meaningful benefit and could cause your baby to suffocate.

 

The ban applies to crib bumpers that are made of non-mesh type material resting directly above the mattress running along the length of each of the interior sides of the crib intended to be used until the age that an infant pulls to stand. 

 

The ban on the sale of crib bumpers is part of the state’s efforts to educate partners about things they can do to keep babies safe when they sleep. Here are the steps parents should take.
