Crib bumper safety – no longer an issue with this bumper-less option

Crib bumper alternative from skip*hopThere’s always been so much controversy about crib bumper safety. Even so, when my first son was a baby, I always longed for a bumper. They looked so cool in the crib and added that extra bit of style to the nursery. However since 2010 was the year that they banned the bumper, skip*hop has been smart to create a very clever alternative

The new Complete
Sheet
from skip*hop is a bumper-less crib sheet
that lends the look of an actual bumper. Sounds like magic, right? The
truth is, it’s really a pretty simple sheet, with a contrasting design on the sides,
only giving the illusion of a bumper. Still, it looks a heck of a lot
like the real thing. I place it in the category of
why-didn’t-they-think-of-that-before?

The Complete Sheet comes in
eight adorable patterns, for whatever style of nursery you’ve got. At
200-thread-count, they’re also super soft.

Another thing I’ve
always been careful to leave out of the crib is a blanket, for that Skip
Hop introduced an Airflow
Wearable Blanket
in matching patterns to the Complete Sheets. So
not only will your little one be safe, they’ll also be completely
camouflaged in their crib. -Melissa

The Complete

Sheet 4-piece set, which includes the wearable blanket bed
skirt and nursery blanket is $120, while the sheet alone is $24. Find
them at SkipHop.com.

    Great idea, but the full effect won’t last too long I imagine. I’ve never owned a sheet that didn’t shrink over time, which – with this design – will end up looking even worse than a normal sheet that has gotten a bit tight.

    I think it’s a great idea! And unlike mkh, I’ve never noticed sheets shrinking on me.
