The researchers report that because of the sheer number of injuries seen annually, baby furniture companies should focus on safe crib designs. The CPSC recently approved brand new mandatory safety standards for full-size and non-full-size baby cribs — which is the first time crib safety standards have been updated in 30 years. Even if baby furniture companies and crib safety standards improve, it’s also up to you, as a parent, to make sure your baby stays safe in his crib. Many child injuries occur, not due to design, but because parents are unaware of how to use a baby product safely. With this in mind, the CPSC recently launched an entire Crib Safety Information Center for parents. If you have any concerns or questions about proper crib use, this is the perfect website to visit.
