The Oliver B Ventilated Slat Crib Bumper is a 20 piece bumper with silky ties specifically designed to address the concerns of medical professionals regarding the lack of air circulation in a crib when a traditional bumper is used. Medical research has shown that the risk of SIDS is reduced with increased oxygen surrounding your baby during sleep.
This bumper works by placing each individual pad over every two consecutive crib slats and tying in a knot across the exposed vertical wooden or metal slats. Ensure the padded side of the bumper is on the inside of the crib and the knots are on the outside of the crib. Below are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Slat Crib Bumper.
Why Use Slat Bumpers?
A slew of recent medical studies have established a link between SIDS and the re-breathing of expired carbon dioxide by sleeping infants. The risk that an infant will re-breath carbon dioxide is profoundly increased when a traditional crib bumper is used because such bumpers block the flow of oxygen into the crib through the crib slats, causing a pooling of carbon dioxide around an infant's nose and mouth. There is a reason cribs have always been made with slats-so oxygen can enter the crib. These bumpers prove the padding of a traditional bumper while still allowing oxygen to flow into the crib to prevent the re-breathing of carbon dioxide, hence SIDS.
How do I tie the ribbons of the Crib Slat Bumpers-in a knot or a bow?
We recommend using a knot and letting the remaining ribbon hang down. Not only does this look fabulous on the crib, but it also allows you to secure the Crib Slat Bumpers on tightly. For safety purposes, out ties meet the standard regulated length for ties on crib bumpers.
How do I care for my Crib Slat Bumper?
All our Crib Slat Bumpers are machine washable, gentle cycle, and are dryer safe, low heat. Can bleach. Warm iron may be used on ties.
What if my crib has an uneven number of crib slats?
Most cribs have 14 slats along the front and back sides of the crib and 6 slats on the ends. However, you may find some irregular cribs have 13 slats along the front end and back sides. If you find that your crib does have an uneven number, you can either leave a slat without a Slat Bumper, or you can group this single slat with one of the end/corner legs.
