I know that shops sometimes sell baby stuff that isn't recommended like baby walkers and cot bumpers, but why do they sell quilts for Moses basket and cribs when these are only suitable for young babies and quilts should not be used under 12 months.

Is it because they are are a different kind of quilt, like a special lightweight one that won't cause overheating?

Also, they sell bumpers for cribs; I've heard different things about these, some say like quilts and for the same reason bumpers shouldn't be used under 12 months (baby can get too hot) but I've also heard that bumpers shouldn't be used after 12 months either as baby can climb on them and get out of the cot and can also get strangled by the ties.
