Nathan is waking up very quietly these days. Nary a peep from the little stinker. I go in to check on him after a normal amount of time for a nap and lo, he is wide awake. Not just awake, but entertaining himself.
He is fairly mobile now and pretty strong. How much of a threat is this? (ignoring the fact I laughed and ran to get the camera after discovering him this way) I removed the quilt that is in his hand but the bumper is still in there. The back of his crib is solid so I have “command” hooks that I tie it too along the back (which you cannot see when the bumper is in place cause HELLO that would drive me nuts) but he is obviously getting it off fairly easily. He does sleep with a blanket and while some people may think that is also a huge no-no, I am okay with it, and there is also a burp cloth to catch the pool of baby drool.
The deal with the bumper is I can remove it and risk his feet getting stuck in the rungs, or leave it and let him tear it down everyday. Catch 22? What do you think, what did you do with your kids?
