Crib Bumpers Banner in Chicago

Many experts say bumpers can suffocate babies if their heads get near the padded crib guards and they can’t move away, or if baby gets wedged between a bumper and the mattress. But as long as retailers offer bumpers - often sold in cute, coordinating nursery sets - some parents will keep on buying them, despite the risks.

The Chicago move comes as the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission conducts a bumper safety review and notes that some infant deaths have been linked to bumpers.

Not in Chicago, which became the first municipality in the nation to ban the sale of bumpers with a unanimous vote Thursday night.
