If you’ve experienced any of the three of these situations – and I’d like to meet the mom who hasn’t felt one of these emotions – then you’ll want to hear about this wonderful product. In fact, I’m so keyed up about these things that I almost want to have another baby! Don’t tell my husband.
Wonder Bumpers are 6” wide and fit on almost all rails. Instead of one long padded piece, each railing has its own “bumper”. Basically you zip them around the rails; you can also zip them together to accommodate even larger size slats.
What a novel idea! Of course we’re all saying, why didn’t I think of that, right?!
We all know that the bumper can make or break your nursery design. Most of us rarely use the quilt that comes in a bedding set, but the bumper is it. And this is why this product rocks: you don’t have to get rid of it once your baby begins moving! The designs are adorable – think dots, stripes, “tickled pink” and more. You can even mix and match them to create your own style. The company produces a luxury line, which includes satin ruffles, trim and super-soft minky fabric on both sides. Yum!
Did I mention the safety aspects? Without the risk of a bulky bumper, SIDS is not as great of a fear, according to Wonder Bumper creators. In addition, babies can’t climb on them and it also lessens the space between railings.
