cot bumpers Lock Rss

hi all,
i think im probably bringing this up in the wrong spot but dont really know where to post this! im having a problem with the cot bumpers. I dont know wether to take them off or to leave them on?! Kayden has started the whole rolling around thing, and he loves it! he is wrapped but when he is awake he tries extremly hard to get him self out of the wrap and play with anything he can grab! even if it is the sheet it gets played with and he puts it in his mouth! but lately he seems to be pulling at the cot bumper enough to get it undone and put it in his mouth! i am a bit worried because of the tassels that are on there, YES YOU KNOW THE ONES! they are really long, and i dont want him to maybe choke on them or swallow them, should i take the bumper off? ANY suggestions plz!

The recommendation from the sleep experts and the SIDS people is not to use cot bumpers at all... Can you cut the ties so they are shorter so there is no chance he will get tangled up in them or choke on them? If not I'd remove it just to be safe. Also if you just have it on there for looks I'd remove it too...
I have just put bumpers on my bub's cot (14 months) as he has started banging his head on the bars!!! Poor thing - I was worried about him hurting himself. My bumper has fairly short ties.
They do like to play when they should be sleeping dont they!!!
