Crib bumpers, do I need one?

if you have the money to spare, there are vertical bumpers that are individual and go around each slat of the crib. they're pretty expensive, but are cute and will help with the head bumps and whatnot.

we didn't bother with one for lily. when she was about 9 months old, she got her leg stuck in the crib and cried bloody murder because it scared her. she was fine after we showed her how to get it out of there, and she never did it again.
Both Catie & Jess did this WITH bumpers on!! They never bonked their heads hard enough for those things to matter much

My son, on the other hand, would take them apart, pile them up, and attempt his escapes that way.
Other times he would just take everything, bumpers, toys, blankets, and throw them on the floor.
They're all different

Babyproofing our house is going to be so much fun.
I wouldn't stress it - every kid is different. With Cate - my oldest - I could've left the house with knives in her lap & an open bottle of bleach & she wouldn't have done anything. Jess on the other hand, we had to bolt furniture to walls and lock down like fort knox!

I tried removing my babies only to have her wake up 5 times during the night because she kept bonking on the bars or getting her legs and arms stuck.
