Re: correct way to put on crib bumper, decor side face in or out

I would say out. Ours are the same on both side though (yes I know they are not recommended but I have used them with 3 kids, no problem. I swaddle babies for as long as I can and then when they no longer want to be swaddled they are usually big enough to move around fine).

Hmm, I put it OUT but I always wondered if it was "right". LOL! I guess I was right.

Out! I want as little distraction as possible for my LO when they are trying to nap.

Re: correct way to put on crib bumper, decor side face in or out

We don't use the crib, but I never really thought about it. DD's faces in and I can see how it would be a distraction during naps. I just put it up for decoration so now I'm going to go face it out I'm not sure DD will ever use the crib as she is almost 11 months and we have no plans of moving her out of our room until 15 months or so. We will probably change it to a toddler bed at that time. But, if we don't then we will most likely take the bumper off for safety reasons.

Re: correct way to put on crib bumper, decor side face in or out

I always thought it was to face it in. I check the package and the way it is on the package is facing in, but thats also the display for the pic I am betting now since the one side of the crib is off for the picture. I am going to turn ours around now. I think it would look better facing out.. BUt I would like to have it like one PP said, if it came in pieces to put the back one facing in, and the front one facing out..

One proper way to install the baby crib bumper pad is by putting the pad at the edge of the mattress and securing it by placing straps of about six times. Also, the straps of the baby crib bumper pad should also be tied well so that they will not hang in such a way that someone may pull them.
