Bumpers????

When we moved Noah into his crib a while back I changed out the bumpers from the ones in the picture above to one like this one pictured below.......

I like that they are breathable, but now Noah is fully capable of turning over and even sitting up by himself in the crib. So my worries of him getting stuck in the corner and smoothering are over. Noah tends to end up with his head right beside the crib and these bumpers aren't the coziest...so I was thinking of putting the old ones back in so he has something comfy to put his head up against. Right now I just got some blankets my momma made and rolled them up and put them on the sides like a mini bumper, but he ends up grabbing them and playing with them. Well, in the am that could be a good thing :D

So I was just wondering if anyone still has the comfy bumpers and if you do how in the world do you change the sheets without taking them off???

We never used any bumpers so I'm of no help.

We switched to the breathable bumpers too and we LOVE it! Nevaeh buries her face into the bumpers when she sleeps.....used to scare us to death! Now we all sleep peacefully!

We don't have any bumper on the crib. I, too, started out with the cute bumper that matched the room but found the same thing. It's a pain to change the sheet with it on so I took it off. Drake is often up against the side of the crib and there is no way I would want a bumper on there now (even though he can move). I would just stick with the breathable bumper.

Thanks y'all! I think I will just keep the breathable one on there too! He doesn't seem to mind it and it is safer :D And not to mention how horrible it would be to change the stinkin sheets!! I wouldn't even know how to do it without taking them completely off!!!

I have left the bumper on for both of my kids..they are both rollers and I felt it was safer for them to roll into that that crash into the side of the crib. I never really feared the not being able to breath thing and once they were rolling over, the risks go down tremendously. Also, both were pacifier kids, so that reduced the risk of anything happening. I would just do what is going to make you comfortable. Good luck!
