do you mean that the bumpers smelled? The smell (unless that of a poison or tobacco smoke) is unlikely to harm a baby. However, bumpers can harm a baby. It is recommended that you remove bumpers from your child's crib. They are not shown to reduce injury and many children get stuck or trapped in them every year. Please talk with you pediatrician about safe bedding for babies.
