Go Mama Go Designs' Wonder Bumpers, Minky Crib Sheet and Dust Ruffle
I was honored to review Go Mama Go Design's Wonder Bumpers and their crib accessories! I was sent the Pink and Cream 38 pack set of Wonder Bumpers, the cream minky crib sheet and the pink & cream dots dust ruffle for review. What are Wonder Bumpers you may be asking? Well as a parent or a parent to be you know the worries of traditional bumper pads and how they are unsafe to use in our babies cribs. Wonder Bumpers are the genius design of VERTICAL bumpers that do not have the danger. They are safe for our babies. They do not pose the suffocation risks and they create heightened padding in the crib to protect baby against injury. To top it off, not only are Wonder Bumpers safe, but they are stylish!

Check out some of the pictures we took and then please read on for valuable information regarding Wonder Bumpers!
We were sent the Wonder Bumpers as well as a cream minky crib sheet and a beautiful pink and cream dot dust ruffle. The minky sheet is an absolute must have for babies. It is the softest sheet and I am in serious need of one for my own bed! 🙂 The dust ruffle just puts it all together with elegance and beauty! It's a soft pink with cream dots and a cream satin trim. The material is incredibly soft on this as well! When these items are used together it definitely makes for a beautiful nursery with the crib standing out with loads of style! Unfortunately we have not been able to add the dust ruffle yet because my 15 month old is still using the crib and it's on the lowest setting which would cause the dust ruffle to drag on the floor. We will be moving him out of the crib soon, moving the mattress back up to the highest setting and adding our beautiful dust ruffle before our baby girl arrives. You can see how well it matches the Wonder Bumpers and how gorgeous it is below:
Let's talk more about Wonder Bumpers for a minute. These amazing vertical bumpers wrap around each crib rail. There is a seperate piece for each rail. This creates a ventilation system that allows for airflow to pass through the crib. Not only do these pads eliminate the suffocation risk because they are pads wrapped around each rail, but they also eliminate the danger of the traditional pads being used as a stepping stool for baby/toddler to climb out of the crib. Outside of being incredibly safe, they make changing the crib sheet much easier than having the traditional type of bumper pads (I remember how nearly impossible this was with my oldest son). They are incredibly easy to install with just a downward pulling zipper on each rail piece. This also makes them easy to remove for easy cleaning! I also love that all designs are reversible, making it easy to create a different look in a very short period of time. Or, you can use them for a different look for baby #2's nursery! They are available in a wide array of colors and designs and it's easy to find something to match any nursery. Outside of their amazing selection, they have custom Wonder Bumpers available as well! In my opinion Wonder Bumpers are a definite must have for baby's crib. With my 15 month old I was concerned about the suffocation risks so we removed the pads, but that left me worrying about the hard wooden rails and him getting hurt. I am thrilled to have these for our baby girl arriving in February as both worries will be eliminated. As parents we worry about everything, so why not remove as many worries as we can by using amazing products such as Wonder Bumpers?
A third party commissioned study also agreed that Wonder Bumpers are safer than traditional off the shelf bumpers. Their study found that “Wonder Bumpers allow for nearly a 32% reduction in carbon dioxide in the sleep environment. This is dramatically improved environment than the off the shelf crib bumper that was assessed in this evaluation.” They also found that “when used as intended, the Wonder Bumpers pose an extremely low level of hazard for a suffocation incident to occur. The Wonder Bumpers enjoy a significant level of mitigation due to the fact that the individual rail guards decrease the total accessible surface area by creating a ventilation system between the crib rails that mimic the inherent design of the crib. In comparison, traditional crib bumpers cover 100% continuous accessible surface that the child is exposed to.” In their conclusion the consulting doctors in this study “agree with the concept of the Wonder Bumpers for protection against fall hazards, suffocation, and entrapment as well as reduction of carbon dioxide in the sleep environment.”
A second source that I learned a lot from was the Mothers Investigating Sleep Options for Newborns or Mission website. Did you know that some states won't even license a daycare that uses bumper pads, yet bumper pads are sold to parents in stores and online daily. Why isn't it illegal for parents to use bumper pads when they create such a deadly threat to our little ones? The city of Chicago deserves kuddos because they banned the sale of crib bumper pads just last month after Chicago Tribune's investigations suggested that bumpers pose a suffocation risk to babies. The state of Maryland is also considering a ban of crib bumpers, which would make them the first state to do so. There is an approximate average of 26 crib related injuries per day, why not remove not only the risk of suffocation but some of these injury risks by removing bumpers and preventing climbing related injuries?
Wonder Bumpers are truly amazing and are the best solution for safe bumpers in a crib. I love that they remove worries that I have as a parent and they look amazing in the nursery. After all I have learned about Wonder Bumpers, I will now be recommending these to every parent and parent-to-be that I know. In my opinion these are the only way to go when it comes to bumpers in the crib. I hope you'll join me and tell everyone you know about these amazing and safe Wonder Bumpers!
