BreathableBaby® Product Claims Are Substantiated by Third Party Tests

Breathable Mesh Crib Bumper is Safer Alternative to Traditional Crib Bumpers

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, April 26, 2011 - The patented Breathable Mesh Crib Bumper from Minneapolis-based company BreathableBaby® has been evaluated and tested for preventing suffocation, promoting air flow, maintaining air access and preventing re-breathing of carbon dioxide. It is the only alternative to traditional crib bumpers that has been tested, recommended by pediatricians and available for under $30.

The patented Breathable Mesh Crib bumper makes the following product claims:
  • Helps prevent suffocation

  • Helps prevent re-breathing carbon dioxide

  • Fabrics provide A.C.T™ Air Channel Technology™ that promotes air flow and helps maintain air access.

All testing was performed by the following third parties: Intertek, RAM Consulting, and Peter C. Raynor, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Environmental Health Sciences at a leading university.

"We strongly support the safety review of traditional crib bumpers, and want parents to know there is a safer and tested alternative that reduces the risks of suffocation and re-breathing of carbon dioxide," says Marc Grossfield, CEO of BreathableBaby. "Recent articles dismiss the fact that a main benefit of crib bumpers is to keep babies' arms and legs from becoming caught between crib slats. When this happens, babies cry night after night and neither the babies or their parents get any sleep. In addition, babies can develop neuropathy and break their limbs," added Grossfield.

A key attribute found in BreathableBaby products is the company's patented A.C.T.™ Air Channel Technology™ which maintains air access. When the bumper is compressed it is virtually impossible to form an airtight seal. Consumers can experience this for themselves by contacting BreathableBaby at and request a free A.C.T. test kit.
