My LO is a wiggle worm and goes all over the crib from one corner to another all night long! I had some nice thick bumper pads in there and took them out to wash... thank goodness i did... that night i woke up and her face was planted where the bumper would have been! Talk about scary. The only thing now is that she hits her head on the slats of the crib... I didn't put the pads back in in fear of her suffocating, but between bumping her head, poking her arms through the holes and losing her paci behind the crib (requiring me to crawl under the crib at least once a night) I'm not sure about what to do. I'm considering getting one of those breathable bumpers? is it worth it? I read somewhere that it can actually increase the chance of SIDS because it traps the CO2 even more!?!?! I wish i could remember where I read that. Please help, not sure what to try... maybe just leave things the way they are and deal with purchasing enough paci's so I don't have to crawl under the crib every night? LOL. Thanks ladies!
oh, just found another option, but super expensive... wonder bumpers...
