New article on crib safety and inspection

July 22nd, 2010

Considering the amount of unsupervised time that the average baby spends in their crib, parents should seek to eliminate all choking, suffocation and entrapment risks. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and various other organizations create standards by which cribs should comply, but not all do, especially older hand-me-downs. These guidelines set a maximum allowable distance between slats, for instance, to prevent children from getting part of their bodies through them. Decorative knobs, mobiles and ribbons, too, present hazards. To find out more, check out our new article on crib safety and inspection.
