Are they Safe?

SIDS is the scariest acronym in all of parenthood.

As parents, we can take certain measures to reduce the risk of SIDS, but should those measures be a personal choice or regulated for us?

Chicago recently became the first city in the country to ban the sale of crib bumper pads. Check out the Tribune article about the ordinance for details.

I used a bumper pad for my daughter (still do in fact.) Did I sign a death wish for her in doing so? Or is Chicago on the right track? What do you think, moms?

Did you use bumper pads? What helped you make that decision?

I'd love to hear your responses. Please feel free to comment, or if you wish send me an email at kathrynrsaltz@gmail.com.
