As above really, we have a wooden rocking crib from John Lewis for when the baby is in our room for the first 6 months, I'm wondering if I need a bumper or whether these are considered unsafe if the baby rolled and restricted their breathing?
No, you don't need one and yes, they can be dangerous.
Very unsafe, you definitely don't need one.
No you don't! As PP said bumpers are dangerous and should be banned
No no no!
Dangerous and unnecessary
I don't know why these are still for sale. They were advises against when I was expecting DS in the late 90s.
Definitely not. I agree that it is irresponsible to sell them
Look into airwrap breathable bumpers, to keep arms and legs in the cot
Not safe and completely unnecessary
Well that's a definitive answer! Thank you mumsnetters!Now to decide whether to return the babymoov Cody dream I've just bought given the latest news!
Agree with others no cot bumper. Also, please return the babymoov thing. They are totally unnecessary and potentially dangerous.
Yeah I can't understand why the shops have suddenly withdrawn all these baby positioners when they still sell cot bumpers though the risks have been known for years.
Hey beaver. A clear cot is safest. There's some really clear advice here to help youwww.lullabytrust.org.uk
We got the airwrap ones and used on the crib and cot. It stopped limbs getting stuck through the bars, and losing loads of dummies down the back. I’d use it again for another child
