Yea, I went to change my DD's to out after this poll. I didn't like that you couldn't see the cute designs so I left it facing in!

Pillowy, decorative crib bumpers are not safe. They are not recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Health Canada, US Consumer Product Safety Commission, nor the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

This is an overview article that has some good links including links to the above mentioned organizations.

Best wishes with your lovely nursery. I know it will be adorable.

In, otherwise the bars would obstruct the design.

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

i dont think theyre dangerous, DS got his leg caught between his crib slats once when i took his bumper out because it "wasnt safe"...it has been in there ever since that incident, i tell you! and ive never had a problem with him having his face smooshed against it. i put it decoration side in, so that when i look down at the crib its pretty.

i, personally (this is my opinion, not a fact or anything ive read from a source), think there is much more of a risk that a baby will get an arm or leg stuck in between the slats of the crib and get hurt than smother because of the bumper.
