We purchased a Graco brand crib at Wal-Mart on 8/8/2011. My toddler keeps getting his legs stuck in between the slats up above the knee which causes him extreme pain and bruising which continues to be sore for days. The slats are very flexible even though the company claims the crib meets all federal guidelines. I was told by the company today (6/21/2013) there is nothing they can recommend and to contact the CPSC if I was still concerned because the CPSC passed the crib as safe.
This happened to my child once when he was about 14 months old and several times since. He is now 19 months old and average weight and height for his age and definitely not ready to be moved out of his crib. He is my third child and we used a different crib with the other two children and this is the only crib that has such flexible slats. I never had issues with the older two getting their legs stuck and bruising badly.
I do not feel a bumper pad would do much benefit and would potentially be something for him to climb on top of to climb or fall out of the crib. The slats are flexible enough that you can push on them and they bend or warp.

I have pictures of his leg being stuck and then the bruising from two different days.
