UGLY Mesh Bumper:
We made this change to keep Connor safe, so of course it is worth it! But, I just hate to give up the beautiful, polka dot bumper! Connor has a habit of scooting his way towards the side of the crib and we worry about him sleeping too close to the bumper. There have been many nights where I wake up and move him to the center of the bed to make sure he isn't up against the bumper. Some SIDS deaths may be related to suffocation from bumpers, so we are now doing whatever we have to do to keep him safe. The UGLY mesh bumper is just a white, mesh strip that protects Connor from sticking an arm or leg through the crib slates, but it is "breathable" if he scoots his way over to the side of the crib. So, good-bye beautiful polka dot bumper...hello UGLY mesh bumper!
Here's a cute picture of Connor. We want his first words after Mama and Dada to be War Eagle!
