crib tent?

Is anyone using a crib tent or plan on using one?

DD's crib is already on the very last notch but when she pulls herself up her head is already above the crib railing. We've had one fall out of the crib already and i was devastated! I do not want that to happen again.

If you are using a crib tent, do you like it? would you recommend it?

    noooooooooooooo....they were recalled, a LO died from getting caught up in it--the parents had attached it wrong, but still.

    no crib tents for Sam!!

    Ditto Jonnygurl - they have been recalled, so definitely don't use one.

    With regards to what to do instead, we have friends who pile pillows and blankets on the floor around the crib.  I think we are going to have to do the same thing . . .

    she shouldn't be able to unless she has something to climb up on.....your not using a bumper right?  a breathable bumper collapses if they try to step on it....silly Sam, tell her she needs to stay in that crib--no more heart attacks for mama!!

    I agree with JG...no crib tents for Sam!  I would talk to her pedi about other options.

    Wait, you make enough in your tip cup to afford a crib tent?!  I'm in the wrong line of business!

    JG, you're right. we use a breathable bumper.  i guess im just extra paranoid now b/c when she did climb out, I had thought there was no way she could but bam! surprised me! i have no idea how she did it.
