Baby Safety Month
September is Baby Safety Month, sponsored annually by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This year, JPMA is helping educate parents and caregivers on the importance of properly using straps on all juvenile products.
The fact is, falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all young children. Every day in the U.S., approximately 8,000 children are treated in the emergency room for fall-related injuries.
What Can You Do?
The best way to prevent injury is direct supervision- watch, listen and stay close to your child.
Strap in for Safety
Child safety devices, like safety belts and straps, should always be used when available. Straps, safety belts, and harnesses on baby gear reduce the risk of infant fall injuries.
Wether it's in the home or on the go, learn how to properly use straps on a variety of products and the importance of correctly using them EVERY time in order to keep baby safe.
