Crib safety: Any bumper is unsafe. You want as little as possible in your child's crib to reduce suffocation hazards. Pillows should also be avoided. Here is a video from the consumer product safety commission about crib safety tips: http://www.Cpsc.Gov/safety-education/safety-education-centers/cribs/.
