Obviously, Baby Berry's safety is of #1 importance to Mr. Spice and I.
So when the American Academy of Pediatrics came out last week saying 'no more bumpers.' Well, Mr. Spice laid down the law and told me that my dreams of making a super cute whale bumper are over.
Bummer. Mr. Spice is pretty set on not having a bumper ever- even when little Baby Berry is bigger.
Of course this sparked a discussion with my family- it seems that every few years guidelines are changed/become more stringent, and yes 99% of the time they are for the good. But as my MIL says- she was told to put her babies on their stomachs, and my Mom was told that formula is best (yes, I am a formula baby and I turned out sort of ok).
So I ask you, any thoughts in the no bumper debate?
PS I also chatted with my friend at Pottery Barn Kids- sounds like they will be focusing their energy on sheets and fancy crib skirts- no more bumpers from them either. Kinda crazy.
PPS Apartment Therapy Kids is already dishing out advice on what to do with your baby bumpers. This is pretty cute if you ask me.
