So are crib bumpers ever OK? Although it can be confusing when the JPMA and the AAP have different recommendations, this is a case where it’s best to go with the doctor’s orders.

Unless the CPSC creates mandatory guidelines for crib bumper safety, your best bet as a parent is to follow the AAP guidelines. Put your baby to bed on their back, on a firm mattress with nothing but a fitted sheet. No blankets, no pillows, and definitely no crib bumpers.
