Wonder Bumpers Review
I received a set of Wonder Bumpers in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own, and have not been reviewed by the company prior to posting.
Unless you live under a rock, you are most likely aware that traditional crib bumpers are NOT recommended for use in a baby's crib anymore. Many children have suffocated on the thick, padded bumpers that tie around a baby's crib rails. So many parents faced a difficult decision of finding a balance between wanting to keep their child safe, but also wanting their baby to feel comfortable in their crib.
Last month I attended the Mother of All Baby Showers here in South Florida. I had the pleasure of meeting Catherine of Go Mama Go Designs and checking out their wonderful (pun intended!) product - Wonder Bumpers. Catherine sent me home with a beautiful gray and yellow set of Wonder Bumpers to try out.
Wonder Bumpers are an innovative new product that parents and babies alike will love! They are a great alternative to old school tie-on bumpers. They are breathable...since they go around each crib rail individually, they don't obstruct the air flow in-and-out of the crib.

I wanted to wait to write this review until we had a chance to really see them in action.
I installed them onto Little J's crib and have been using them for a few weeks. Installation was pretty easy. All you do is wrap the bumper around the crib rail, and pull the zipper down to secure the Wonder Bumper. The zipper ends up at the bottom of the crib, out of the reach of your child. There are no dangerous ties, like on traditional crib bumpers.
Immediately, after putting them on the crib I fell in love with how they made the room look and feel, by adding an element of warmth to Little J's bedroom.

More importantly, if Little J bangs his head or arms or legs into the side rails of the crib during the night, he will be protected from bumps and bruises by the soft plush Wonder Bumpers, but not unsafe because he will still be getting fresh air throughout the night. As Little J realizes that he is big enough to climb out of his crib, these will also help to avoid that, as he won't be able to get a good grip on the bars! :)
Overall, I think Wonder Bumpers are a fabulous product. Wonder Bumpers come in a variety of colors to match any nursery decor. If you are looking for a beautiful, safe way to dress up your child's crib and nursery, while keeping them safe at the same time, please check out Wonder Bumpers.
