She was so mad at me...

Mostly because I ran to grab the camera before I would save her...



How necessary are bumper pads?

If you are worried about suffocation with a bumper pad, try the Breathable Baby bumper (you can google it to find out where to purchase). It costs about $30. It's mesh, so it's breathable, and it keeps the arms and legs inside the crib. BTW, this is Natasha's SIL Mindy. I totally blogstalk you. I hope that's okay. I love to see the progress your little miracle baby is making.

That is too cute! With both Hunter and Paizlei, I have taken out the bumper pads between 11-15 months. I found that the bumper pads really don't stop the little one from getting their legs in between the slats. They kick, their legs are in between the slats and it pushes the bumper pads down between the mattress and the bed rails/slats. From my experience, I wouldn't go out and buy bumper pads to keep her legs from going between the slats. Hopefully that helps you.

That is pretty sad how upset she is but you HAD to get the camera! So cute. I can't believe how stuck she got.

Ha!! We had a few of those very moments this week :)

I was obsessed with getting bumper pads for Kinley, but became disenchanted with them and didn't use them at all for Tanner or for Crew. The pads didn't seem to help these situations. Kinley still managed to slide her legs or arms under the bumpers! And sliding her arms under and getting her face stuck by the bumper frightened her (and me). If they were tucked a little so that she couldn't shove under the bumper, she'd shove OVER them with her arms or legs and it was the same situation, pointless bumpers. If you've gone this long, I say they aren't worth the investment. I can't speak to the efficacy of the breathable baby bumper though. That may work better.
