WHEW! Sorry we have been MIA with reader requests. We weren't getting many requests in and now suddenly we have a HUGE influx (which is AWESOME - thank you so much for giving us ideas). Just know that if you've sent a request in the last two weeks we WILL get to it - it might just take a few days or a week or so. Thanks again and keep those ideas coming.
This week we are talking about bumper pads!!! And oh boy, I for one am quite excited that this topic came up. Check out what our reader said:
"Recently my husband went to check on our 7 month old son before we went to bed. He notice that our son and rolled onto his side and was VERY close to the crib bumpers. When he came and told me about it I jumped out of bed right then and we went in to take the crib bumpers out. It made me really nervous that if we had not checked on him that he possibly could have suffocated. I had never even thought of that being a possibility before.
So I was wondering, what are your thoughts on crib bumpers?
Do you use them? And if so, how do you try to make sure your child doesn't roll into them?
And, what types of things do you have in the crib?
Do you just wrap up your baby and put him/her in there?
Or do you use a blanket to just lay on top of him/her?"
So help her out!! Give us your thoughts and stories, and keep it all coming! Thanks for reading and making this blog great.
