We didn't use a bumper until probably 6 months. Then we put it in because he got so distracted by EVERYTHING that he would look around when we put him down. The bumper helped keep him calm in his crib and go to sleep.
Now when I put him down in the crib I lay on the floor next to the crib until he's quiet for 10 seconds straight. Then I'll lift the crib bumper ever so slightly so I can see his face to make sure he's asleep before I crawl out of the room.
SIMBASIM:I still use them. C is all over the place and I am scared he would hit his head. I never did see what the big deal is?
Its a SIDS concern- that they would smother themselves against the bumper and not be able to breathe.

I meant for me personally. It was never an issued for us until recently. C never rolled over now he is all over the place.

Yes, a regular one. About to take it off tonight now that LO can pull himself to standing in the crib (we've already lowered the mattress).
