A report in the journal Pediatrics found that nearly 10,000 babies and infants are admitted to emergency rooms each year with injuries sustained in or by crawling out of cribs. What do you think?

"Quick fixes like higher bars don't address the root cause of why babies want to jump out and die in the first place."

"With all the science these days, you’d think we could have weeded the squirmy gene out of babies by now."

"My God, why would you ever want to leave your crib? It's warm and cozy, and it has that yummy teether, and that thing that projects stars over it at night."
