According to some parents, 27 babies that died over a period of 20 years (a little over one death per year) due to crib bumper pads is not a notable statistic. A much higher number of babies die every year from choking with food, drowning or common diseases.

Certain babies are very active at night and end up bumping their head on the rails or getting their limbs stuck. Although most of these incidents are minor and not life threatening, it can result in keeping you and your baby up all night. Failing to find a better solution, parents often resort to bumper pads, even though they are aware they’re not the safest.

Parents also use the crib bumper pads for their aesthetics. Let’s be honest, they can really make the crib look cooler and cozier.

There is no ban on bumper pads therefore a lot of stores sell these, usually without taking the time to educate the parents on the dangers of using the bumpers
