What's odd is that most baby boutiques and stores show off crib bumpers with glee - but bumpers aren't all that safe. Note that the Consumer Product Safety Commission says bumpers, firm or soft are just too darn risky for babies. I agree. Most bumpers come in super soft pillow-like versions, with ribbon, or ties, all of which is a huge danger to your little one. The most recent reports from the Safety Commission say that even firm bumpers pose a risk (which goes against the previous convention of firm is fine). The problem with firm bumpers is that a baby might trap his tiny head between the bumper and crib mattress.
