Bumpers but Not Really

The bumper debate is still a heated one. As concern regarding bumpers has heightened, some interesting alternatives have been hitting the market. One of my favorites is the Wonder Bumpers by Go Mama Go Designs. These vertical bumpers wrap tightly around each crib spoke. The theory behind them is that they still provide a protective barrier for your child, inhibit your child from using the bumper as a means of jumping out of the crib, while allowing for better airflow in the crib. Pretty nifty.

I think using these bumpers—I vote for solids—with your pick of sheet and crib skirt is a great alternative for parents who opt out of the traditional bumper but still want an interesting and designer look.

What do you think of this new bumper alternative? Would you use them?

I'm going to be making some of the covers seeing as there are 3 family members expecting, (must be the water,which is why I drink bottled) but I cant figure out how they stay on seeing as ive only seen them on google. Any body know?

Yea that's a wonderful idea. I actually had the same idea almost 13 yrs ago well before I was a mom. I was 16 at the time watching my niece when she was using the old origanals and was trying to climb out of her crib. Back then I wasn't creative enough to sew. 12 yrs later I have finaly made my own for my 3rd son! Hopefully more mother will use the same type.

I love the wonder bumpers!!! They are the safest bumper on the market and they still provide all of the protection that we look for!! I would highly recommend them.

I would definitely use them if they were more reasonably priced!

I love my Wonder Bumpers. The zipper doesn't eat away at the wood on the crib and they are easy to wash. My son is a very active sleeper and we have never had an issue with any sort of bruises or injuries. Our set was cheaper than most other bedding sets out there and well worth every penny! We ended up spending about 230.00 as opposed to $359.00 for the other bedding set we were interested in. We lvoe our bumpers because we when transition our son to his toddler bed we'll be able to continue to use them. So we've definitely gotten our moneys worth.
