The first time I heard about Sudden Infant Syndrome, it was the late 1980s. A lot has been learned since then about SIDS; however, it remains the leading cause of death for infants, under one year of age. According to medical professionals and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the risk is escalated with the use of traditional crib bumpers due to their prevention of free airflow through the crib.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a ventilated crib slat bumper? A bumper that allowed air through, and still added style and elegance to the baby’s crib? There is such a bumper, and it’s OLIVER B! Not only is this revolutionary slat bumper stylish and beautiful, it’s won the National Parenting Center Seal of Approval and is quickly gaining popularity.
Our review is the sophisticated navy and lime colors that pop against the snowy white slats. It’s traditional colliding with modern for a fresh creative spin on the popular layette!
Each Oliver B comes with 20 ventilated crib slats.
Oliver B recommends for infants ages 0-12 months using the individual crib slat bumpers across every two consecutive slats of the front side of the crib, creating an oxygen-rich environment for the baby.
Out of the package, Oliver B is, even more, impressive:
I love the simplicity, the bright colors, and that no detail is left undone:
When the baby reaches 12 months of age, Oliver B recommends using the traditional four-piece bumper, when limb entanglement and bruising become more of a safety issue, rather than poor air circulation. Oliver B has even taken safety a step further by creating the slats to be very thin, yet still sturdy and soft.
Oliver B is more than just ventilated crib slats, and they are also luxurious blankets and pillows. Take the Hotel Collection as a prime example:
This is one of the softest blankets I’ve ever encountered. Made of luxe minky satin fabrics, it is an incredible luxury! The blanket measures a whopping 34″x44″ and the pillow is a comfortable 14″x14″. Both are new-mom friendly with their machine washable ability!
The Oliver B Hotel Collection adds simple beauty to the nursery. It’s sleek and sophisticated without being too mature for baby.
As someone with sewing experience, the quality of Oliver B is tremendous. The stitching is dainty. The ribbons are reinforced, and no detail has been overlooked. It is an incredible quality.
In addition to being impeccably constructed and aesthetically pleasing, Oliver B is also doing good.
We have committed to donating one blanket to a child in need for each blanket that we sell. Whether it is a child overseas with nothing more than the ground on which to sleep or a sick or orphaned child in the United States, every child needs their own blanket. With each purchase of an Oliver B blanket, we will ensure that one additional needy child will receive a new, soft blanket to call his or her own. Together, we can give back to underprivileged children all over the world by supplying them with an endless amount of blankets. On behalf of these needy children, we sincerely appreciate your support.
Next time a baby is on your list, whether it’s your own new arrival, or that of someone you love, think of Oliver B. They’re so much more than baby bumpers. They’re peace–peace of mind, peaceful sleeping and with their quest for every child to have their blanket, they’re peace on Earth.
