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

them, despite the risks.

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