We had Air Weave bumpers but I didn't like them and took them off becase they were useless. It didn't fit around the cot properly so it was constantly slipping down and he kept grabbing it and pulling it in.



Maybe you'll have better luck. I'm just glad I didn't pay full price for it :?

I'm sure these are no different, it's mesh material.... I decided to not do a full crib set, I just want the bumper and the sheet, and been looking at a lot of options.

It's worse when they're active because they try to use them to climb :?



My mum's friend's granddaughter fell out of her cot doing it and a friend caught her son before he nose dived too. I was giving ours the benefit of the doubt until my mum told me :shock:

Makes me wonder if I should buy a crib at all... I bought him a really nice pack n play (lights, sound, bassinet, changing table).... but then I thought aww he'll need a crib... so I decided to buy one.... but I figure he will mostly sleep in either his big comfy swing or his bassinet pack n play deal.

I didnt place bumpers till my son could roll over, which didnt have me worrying when he was itty bitty, so I was fine, they are cute, but sometimes such a heavy burden to carry whether they are safe or not.

I was worried when DD started kicking herself to one side of the cot recently. Dont want body parts smooshed between the bars. So i put them up. Will see how they go when she gets a bit older.



Im rather accident prone and if she takes after me....it might save a few hassles while she is rolling. These ones are supposed to collapse under their weight but i figured if they can climb them, then a bumper aint going to save her from anything! watch the cyclone begin!!
