Baby Cradle And Bassinet Safety
Guidelines For New Moms
But cradles and bassinets that do not meet bassinet safety standards, have been associated with falling, entrapment and strangulation when the bottom of the baby bassinet or cradle has broken. In addition suffocation has occurred where parents have not followed safe baby bedding guidelines.
The following infant safety standards are to help you make sure that your little one is in safe hands when your hands can't be there...
Cradle And Bassinet Safety Standards
These basic infant safety standards apply to all small baby beds including baby bassinets, baby cradles and baby moses baskets.
Many baby cradle and bassinet accidents can be prevented by careful attention to detail when setting up and using these small baby beds. Improper setup can cause the baby bed to collapse resulting in injury or death to your baby.
Consider how fragile your newborn baby is everytime you lay her down to sleep.
In addition to checking against the above bassinet and cradle safety standards, look for a small baby bed with JPMA certification.
The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) certifies baby cribs that meet, or exceed, voluntary safety standards issued by the American Society for Testing and Materials. These standards are stricter and safer than the mandatory infant safety standards promulgated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
That takes care of the main cradle and bassinet safety standards. In addition there are many other infant safety factors that contribute to your baby's sleeping environment such as:
All of these infant safety factors are important for the well-being of your baby, but there are far too many to list them all here. The best way to make sure you have everything covered is to use a nursery safety checklist when you are setting up your baby nursery.
