Putting baby to sleep in a crib: safety precautions

Luckily there really is only one rule for baby in a crib.

Nothing in the crib but the baby.

Babies do not need pillows. Sleep sacks do well in place of blankets and will also keep their legs contained so that there is no need for bumpers either.

They do make mesh bumpers with breathable fabric to use in place of regular bumpers, but I was never comfortable with anything on the crib.

At over 6 months old, the only thing in Charlie's crib is Charlie, and his rattle.
