At Oilo, we’re about turning your nursery into the most comfortable, clean, and carefree sanctuary in your home. While making decisions in planning and designing baby’s beautiful nursery, we encourage you to learn about proper use of your baby’s crib and crib bedding for optimal safety.
:: No pillow-like bumpers
:: No sagging bumpers
:: Keep bumper upright and in position
:: Remove bumper when child can sit up unaided or pull to standing position. At this point, children may use a bumper to boost them out of their crib.
Oilo is pleased to provide 2-piece bumper pads that allow for secure attachment without unwanted gaps. Our bumpers are foam filled for standing durability, and this eliminates the tendency of bumper sagging and falling.
:: Always secure crib ties to the outside of crib.
:: Double knot all crib ties tightly, with very short excess hanging loose.
:: Corner ties should only be tied to corner posts.
Oilo crib bumpers are designed with plenty of well-placed ties, maximizing attachment safety.
:: No adult bedding in crib.
:: No stuffed animals in crib.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the greatest risk is to an infant sleeping in the prone position or in a crowded sleep environment that includes pillows, cushions, and adult bedding.
Parenting involves many choices. You’ll find yourself making lists of pros and cons to everything involving your child, and it is ultimately up to you to make the decision that is best for you and your baby. When shopping Oilo, parents have the option of purchasing a 3-piece crib set, including bumper pads, a crib sheet, and crib skirt, or the option of buying these pieces separately. If you choose not to use bumper pads, or remove them as baby gets older, Oilo crib sheets and skirts will still provide a distinct design statement! Look for Oilo’s new collection of patterned crib skirts debuting January 2012 to add some flair to cribs without bumpers.
