So, crib bumpers. I don't want to use them, but my 4-month-old has started sticking his chubby little legs through the bars of his crib and getting stuck. This is bad. What else can I do? Can I put a bumper on the outside of the crib? How do I keep those little limbs contained?

We've seen bumpers used on the outside of cribs but below the rails as a decorative element (like in Joseph's room
) and I suspect some of the same hazards would exist if they were used outside but at rail-level. Readers, what advice do you have for Kelsey? Do you like the mesh breathable bumpers as an option?
