    1. See your doctor! Even if it’s just a “stuffy nose” it’s important at this age to get him checked out! Good luck!

  2. We opted for mesh bumpers, but my baby keeps getting her foot stuck in the rails and wakes up crying. Any thoughts on remedies for that or is it just par for the course?

    1. Getting little legs stuck or finding sleeping children with their heads squashed up against the wood are two common complaints I hear in this new “post bumper” phase. Right now there is no perfect solution. The recommendation is to remove all bumpers, even the mesh ones.
