A Safer Nursery Environment with BreathableBaby

I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.

In recent years traditional crib bumpers have been getting a bad rap, and for good reason. They simply aren't worth the suffocation and entanglement risks posed to your precious baby. It's best to forgo those bulky bumpers and opt for no bumper at all, or choose a breathable option like the Breathable Mesh Crib Liner from BreathableBaby.

I'll never forget the screams of Buddy when he was a baby, getting his arms and legs stuck in between the crib slats in the middle of the night. I knew that I would not give in traditional bumpers but at that time I was not aware of any other options. Before baby girl arrived I spotted the Breathable Mesh Crib Liner at Target and knew I had to have it.

The Breathable Mesh Crib Liner is made from a lightly-padded, breathable mesh that uses exclusive Air channel technology (ACT) fabric to maximize air flow. In the interest of testing the breathability of the mesh, I smashed my face right up against it. I could breathe as though nothing was there, and I instantly felt relieved to have found a safe bumper option for my baby girl. The liner tucks below the mattress for a secure, safe fit.

The 100% polyester liner does not contain any chemicals, flame retardants or formaldehyde. It's completely washable, not scratchy at all, and protects baby from major bumps and bruises, and from getting stuck between crib slats. 

Two mesh panels are included, one short and one long, to provide full coverage with no gaps between crib slats and at corners. They are fastened with adjustable velcro at each end, and with several ties along each panel to obtain a secure fit. It took me a few tries to get the liner fitted properly but it's worth the effort.

I received the Mesh Crib Liner as part of the BreathableBaby 3-piece Safety Crib Bedding Set. This set also includes a white crib skirt and a white nursery blanket. The blanket consists of two layers of different breathable fabrics and features rounded corners. While it's not a large blanket and doesn't belong IN the crib with baby, it's perfect for times you'd rather not use a heavy blanket to cuddle with baby.

We may not be using the crib yet (the best laid plans never go as intended, right?), but when we do, baby girl will be safe. The Breathable Mesh Crib Liner not only keeps arms and legs safely inside the crib, but pacifiers too! I remember reaching behind Buddy's crib in the middle of the night to retrieve all the pacifiers that he had dropped. With the liner in place, everything stays inside.

The white mist color is a very bright white, and perfectly gender neutral. This set is also available in pink or blue, and all three colors can be found on Amazon for about $30-$40.

This looks so much safer. They need to make them with prints and other colors.

We had one of these with our little one. I slept better knowing he wouldn't get his legs caught in between the bars.

This is an awesome product, especially for parents who worry about their babies so much, like me. Lol. I wish I had this when the twins were still babies.
