when is it ok to have put things in my babies crib?

Specializes in Pediatrics
No: We all love cute bumpers and stuffed animals. They're great in photos and grandma loves 'em. However, there should be nothing in the crib other than an approved mattress, a fitted sheet and perhaps an approved cover, and your baby. Anything else, including sleep positioners, pillows, bumpers, blankets, and animals are off limits.
