Are you and your partner are expecting? If so, you definitely want to make sure that you have all the baby essentials that you need. In addition to having plenty of diapers, bottles and clothes in the nursery, it's also crucial that your lovebug has a crib to sleep in. If you've already purchased one, then it's time to start thinking about the bedding that will go inside it.
One item that used to be popular but has come under fire over the years is the crib bumper. These pieces, also known as bumper pads, first came onto the market as a way to protect infants from getting caught in between the crib slat spacing, which could lead to strangulation.
However, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has published warnings against the use of these objects. In fact, researchers have found that bumpers "carry a potential risk of suffocation, strangulation, or entrapment because infants lack the motor skills or strength to turn their heads should they roll into something that obstructs their breathing."
Luckily, there is a safe alternative to crib bumpers and they are sold by us, Kid's Stuff Superstore. The BreathableBaby® Breathable Bumper is not only award-winning, but it also was made to reduce the likelihood of suffocation, entanglement and climbing. How exactly? Air Channel Technology increases air flow so that any potential for life-threatening accidents is reduced.
BreathableBaby® Breathable Bumper is also super soft, padded and machine-washable. Although they are certainly cute, little ones can be quite messy. Luckily, cleaning and drying this baby essential is a cinch!
