Bumper for crib with solid back??

Is there a specialty bumper for a crib with a solid back (convertible)? I've tried online but can't find one.

My crib looks like this one:




I really want to use a bumper (I know some people say no bumpers,etc...I am NOT here to debate just to find a solution)

we had the same problem

Where the bumber meets the "head board" loop it back through on the outside of the crib. So it's basically doubled up on the side,

does that make sense? We arranged ours so where the folds are were at the point where the crib-side and head meet, then double it back on the outside of the crib and tie it back to itself.

I know you said you didn't want a debate, but I highly suggest you do some research in regards to bumpers before you put on in. I refused to use one after my personal research and I don't think it took anything away from either of their rooms. The American Academy of Pediatrics says they should be completely banned! Why risk putting your child's life for selfish reasons of "cuteness" for you?

Please research this. Last year a co-workers baby smothered in crib bedding.

The look is not worth the potential risk.

You don't need a bumper, it's not worth it just to have a pretty looking crib.

Agree with the others. No bumper. Not only is it safer, save the money for something else.

I know you said it was not open to debate but I know a woman personally whose baby smothered to death in a crib bumper. He was born the same month as my now-13 month old and I immediately took my breathable bumpers out when it happened...apparently they are just as dangerous. I have no bumper and put my baby in a sleep sack so her legs would not get stuck between the slats. Works perfectly.

I used bumpers & all my kids are alive & well. What I did for the solid back crib was cut off the extra, sew the ends up & tie it to the 3 sides.

i think they are a waste of money. A product that can only be used for a couple of months. can't use them early on b/c of SIDS risk, can't use them once they start to pull up- b/c they can stand on them to pull out of crib.


anyways, when you say solid back, i'm not sure if you are not interested in the safer breathable bumper option:

ETA: oh good lord, i'm TIRED! I read that - as you were looking for a solid crib bumper...SMH!!!
ANYWAYS a quick google search:

i found a picture/product for solid back cribs: http://www.breathablebaby.com/mm5/me...CRIB-FIT-GUIDE

Well, I did too, and mine are fine, but I also never wore a seatbelt until I was in my 20's, and never got into a car accident. However, my kids wear seatbelts.

I was also told to place my oldest on her side to sleep (with some contraption). I was told to put the rest of them on their backs. I was told to turn my kids around in the car at one year, because that was safest.

Things are always changing, as more information is gained. I did love bumpers, if only to keep the binkies in the crib! But it's sure easier to change a crib sheet without them.

I am totally amazed at how many ppl just ignored OP's request to not debate whether or not she should use the bumper and went ahead and felt the need to give your advice and opinion anyway.

In a case like that when the OP asks for no debate I think if you feel the need to debate you should back out of that thread on move on to other ones.

But of course everyone feels their own opinion is THE OPINION and goes right on with it.

If bumpers are important to you, what about those "wonder bumpers" that wrap around each individual crib bar? They claim they are safer and there wouldn't be an issue with the back.

So, just because she asked for no debate on something that could potentially be dangerous to her baby, we should keep our mouths (or fingers) silent? That's silly. No one berated her or called names. It was simply said that while bumpers are cute, they are a potential hazard. I think we would be remiss if we didn't point out that bumpers are unnecessary and can be fatal.

If the OP had said "I need to figure out how to put this space heater close to the crib to keep baby warm. No debate, I really want this space heater as close as possible", wold you honestly not try and tell this mother that it is a bad idea?
