Georgia Fiebrich, who graduated from the University of Texas and now lives in San Antonio, co-created with Catherine Hall a crib bumper that softens the crib rails without creating a suffocation risk. Wonder Bumpers from Go Mama Go Designs fit around the rails, instead of being a strip of fabric in front of the rails. Bumpers come in pack of 38 zippered rail covers, which fits most cribs, for $149. Or if you just need 24, it’s $99. They come in various colors and patterns. You can also reverse them for an all white look. They are washing machine washable. Find them at www.gomamagodesigns.com.
