Crib Bedding Safety: Chicago Votes on Banning Bumper Pads

I read an article the other day about crib bedding safety. Apparently Chicago was voting September 8th on an ordinance that would make Chicago the first city in the country to ban the sale of crib bumper pads. Maryland is considering a similar proposal to ban the sale of bumper pads.

The only problem with this crib bumper pads safety issue? The trade group that represents the bumper pad makers and sellers, states that bumper pads are not only safe, but also claims that banning bumper pads could force parents to use pillows and blankets against the crib rails if bumper pads are not available. Though this could still cause  unintended consequences. I hope they  took all of this into consideration when they voted on this crib bedding safety issue.
