Another Way to Use the Crib Bumper

In the past, there's been much discussion about safety and the use of bumpers in the crib here at Ohdeedoh. Crib bedding sold in sets includes crib bumpers, but how do incorporate them into the nursery?

Think outside the box...literally. Instead of affixing the bumper along the inside of the crib, tie the bumper to the outside railings for a decorative look. We really like this idea because it allows us to use the bumper and inject more color into the nursery safely. It also helps hide the bottom of the crib mattress. We know this might not work for all cribs (the IKEA Gulliver is shown here). Also, since the outside perimeter of the crib is larger than the inside, the bumper most likely won't reach all the way around the entire crib.

Do you like this look?
