SEPTEMBER IS BABY SAFETY MONTH

SEPTEMBER IS BABY SAFETY MONTH
Make Every Night A Safe Night

September is Baby Safety Month, sponsored annually by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This September, JPMA is helping educate parents and caregivers on the importance of creating a safe sleep environment from naptime to nighttime.

Each year hundreds of deaths occur when children are placed in a sleep environment that is not specifically designed for children. The safest place for a baby or child is in a fully functional, properly assembled, JPMA Certified crib, cradle, bassinet, portable play yard, or toddler bed.

Help us spread the word about Baby Safety Month. Parents are encouraged to read through the safety tips at http://www.babysafetymonth.org/ and gain powerful insight into safe sleep practices. We invite you to celebrate Baby Safety Month 2010 and Make Every Night a Safe Night.

In an effort to further educate parents on creating a safe sleep environment, JPMA has developed a comprehensive safe sleep campaign. Together, with related industry partners, JPMA is committed to educating parents and caregivers nationwide on the best safe sleep practices to make every night with baby a good, safe night. For more information on this initiative, visit http://www.cribsafety.org/.

Baby Safety Month exists to increase consumer awareness of safety issues surrounding the safe use and selection of juvenile products. Baby Safety Month started in 1983 when JPMA initiated “Expectant Mother’s Day.” In 1986, it was extended to a week long celebration, until 1991, when JPMA sponsored the first “Baby Safety Awareness Month.”

Thank you.
