To simply put it, crib bumpers are NOT illegal. There is a lot of hype in the media and knowing before you buy will allow you to be more comfortable. Bumper pads help complete the look of bedding, reduce the draft to keep baby warm, and prevent entrapment of limbs between crib rails. The main purpose of the pads was to prevent limb entrapment. The spacing between crib rails, back in the day, used to be very wide and the bumper pads helped prevent injuries.

“There is no such thing as safe microwaveable plastic. As you heat it, you degrade the chemical bond. You can’t see this happening. You can’t taste it, you can’t smell it, but you are getting dosed at a higher amount.”
Even microwave safe bottles or plastic that have been designed for use in microwaves undergo testing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure that the plastic will retain its shape under high temperatures and have the “least amount of leaching possible.” Leaching is considered to be safe provided that the amount of leaching is within “certain parameters” for the type of plastic used.
