Breathable Mesh Crib Liner™ from BreathableBaby® is a Safer Alternative to Traditional Crib Bumpers

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March, 2012) — The Breathable Mesh Crib Liner from Minneapolis-based company BreathableBaby® offers a safer alternative to traditional crib bumpers for under $30. The patented, award-winning Breathable Mesh Crib Liner offers parents a design alternative to traditional bumpers which are typically thick, plush or pillowy and made of less breathable fabrics. The Liner is available in multiple prints and colors to complement any crib or baby bedding design.

For more than ten years, parenting experts, child product safety organizations, and new parents have been talking about the potential safety hazards of using traditional crib bumpers inside infants' cribs despite the benefits of preventing head, arm and leg injuries. But, thanks to recent reports from leading newspapers and television news programs, parents are becoming more aware of these serious safety hazards.

Dale and Susan Waters, founders of BreathableBaby (www.breathablebaby.com), agree and strongly support the increased awareness that recent articles have created around the potential suffocation hazards caused by the use of traditional crib bumpers.

"We support a diligent safety review of traditional crib bumpers. It's imperative that parents are aware of the potential dangers and can make an informed decision," said Susan Waters. "We created the Breathable Mesh Crib Liner because even though our own daughter lodged her tiny arms and legs between the slats of the crib, we refused to use a traditional crib bumper for fear of suffocation." Dale Waters added, "There was no bumper on the market that kept our daughter safe from suffocation. So, we created a safety product designed to reduce the risk of suffocation caused by traditional bumpers."

A key element found in BreathableBaby's Mesh Crib Liner is its exclusive fabric with ACT™ Air Channel Technology™ and SPT™ Suffocation Prevention Technology™. When the Liner is compressed it is virtually impossible to form an airtight seal. Maintaining air access is a tested benefit in lowering the risks of suffocation.

"There are risks to having a bare crib, and there are risks to using a traditional bumper," said BreathableBaby Co-founder, Dale Waters. "Our Breathable Mesh Crib Liner addresses both risks and provides parents with peace of mind."

BreathableBaby products have been objectively tested by three independent labs, have support of pediatricians, and are affordable so more parents can provide safe sleep for their baby. In addition, the Breathable Mesh Crib Liner is hypo-allergenic, machine washable, and fits all cribs.
