Our baby girl has started sleeping in her crib for the last few weeks. We were told it is a better idea to remove the "bumper pad" as this can create a dangerous spot for babies to suffocate during the night. She likes to turn in the night and this morning she woke up with the top of her head pressed against the crib rails. I picked her up and there were two dents along her head from the rails. You could easily feel them and I'd say they were about 1/16" deep. Is this normal and is it doing any permanent damage? Should we think about using the bumper pads? We'll definitely ask the doctor but just looking for opinions and experiences here. Thanks.View Thread
