We're wading into crib bumper waters again, this time to show a modified crib bumper called CozyWedge - could this be a better, safer bumper?
Two design features distinguish the CozyWedge from a traditional bumper pad. The first is that it's made of a firm foam which the company says prevents it from forming a pocket around a baby's mouth and nose if rolled against - a suffocation hazard present in soft, plush pads. Secondly, it also has a low profile which gives parents better visibility as well as reduces the ability to use the bumper as a step to climb out of the crib.
You may also be psyched that the CozyWedge has far fewer ties than most bumpers - six total which makes changing and cleaning crib bedding less of a headache. The slipcovers to the Cozy Wedge are removable for washing and come in five cotton prints or eight organic cotton solids.
For parents concerned about the potential hazards of using crib bumpers, but who still want to keep arms and legs inside the crib (not to mention some of the baby head bangers out there), the CozyWedge might be a good compromise. They sell for about $60 - learn more about them here.
