We at Go Mama Go recently put out a request for stories from several areas of the country. One of those areas was the Philadelphia metro area. We were contacted by an amazing mother willing to tell her wonder bumper story. Below is the testament of Rebecca McKerns and her daughter :
“My daughter is almost 2 years old and has recently been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Her condition causes her to sometimes lose her balance when sitting, and would cause her to bump her head on her hard wooden crib rails. She also has limited mobility, and will sometimes get her legs or arms caught in the rails of her crib. I had been searching for a product that would give her the safety and comfort she needed, and also the piece of mind I needed for both of us to get a good nights sleep. I had called our doctor, local hospitals, local special needs organizations, and only to be told what I had already knew about, but didnt want to risk.. using the standard crib bumper, or as one nurse told me ” just try to have someone rig something up for you, but then you risk being liable should anything happen!” Not a chance I’d like to take! I did alot of my own searching and came across your product. I believe I placed my order within 2 minutes of getting on your site! I knew right away that this was just what I had been looking.. rather desperately searching for! And as an added bonus, they were PRETTY and in Pink!! My order came within 3 days, and we couldn’t wait to try them out! They were so easy to put on and fit great! My daughter loved the feel of them (which was another plus since she is really just learning to sit and reach for things,,this gives her something nice and soft to touch!) She immediately sat up in her new beautiful crib, looked around, reached out, lost her balance, but this time.. NO BUMP noise.. NO CRYING… A wonder indeed!! Your Wonder Bumpers are heaven sent and I can’t thank you enough for coming up with such a great product! I love knowing that my daughter is safe now and that she will be in the future as we convert her to a bed, complete with Wonder Bumpers on the rails!! I will be spreading the word about your product to anyone I know and hope to save many more noggins like my daughters!!”
We hope that with more stories like this, the public can see the amazing resource Wonder Bumpers provide, especially to special needs children.
