(Closed) Are those “breathable” bumpers really ok, and do they actually work?

I’ve seen these slat cushions that go around each individual crib slat, and I’ve considered getting some of those, but they’re so darn expensive.  I liked those better than the breathable bumpers because it doesn’t have the unprotected space above a bumper, and you can leave them on even after your baby starts pulling up/standing.  the might be another option.

That was happening with Kayla when all I had was a crib sheet.  She was already starting to pull to stand and try to climb up so a regular bumper was a no-no.  We ended up getting a breathable bumper.  It’s to flimsy to climb on and she hasn’t gotten any limbs caught since we put it on.  I’m not sure if this is because she learned not to do that or because of the bumper! 🙂  I haven’t had any issues with it.  It was a little hard to figure out how to get the two pieces to fit on the crib and cover all the spaces, but I have a crib with wide slats, and I’m sure it would have been easier on a different crib.
