JPMA offers parents tips for Baby Safety Month
August 9, 2017,
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – In preparation for Baby Safety Month in September, the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Assn. is helping educate consumers about the importance of strapping children in places ranging from car seats to high chairs.
The “Strap In For Safety” campaign is based on the fact that falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children from newborns up to age 19 years old. Each day, some 8,000 children are treated in emergency rooms for fall-related injuries, the JPMA notes.
First and foremost parents, grandparents and other caregivers are advised to keep an eye on babies and other children whenever possible. However, the JPMA also has offered some safety tips as part of its campaign.
