Crib Bumpers Can Harm Babies

I didn't use use padded bumpers with my daughter, and I felt a little weird about it. Cute crib bumpers seem to be a staple of child-rearing. Just look at any crib at Babies-R-Us. But, since I knew that bumpers were a possible suffocation hazard, I didn't use them. I felt affirmed when I read this post at Baby 411.

So what did I do with the bumpers that came with my crib set? I decided to turn them into pillows for my daughter's toddler bed. They are a work in progress, but when I get them done, they'll be great.
