September is Baby Safety Month, a national annual campaign created by The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), the national trade organization that works to improve children's product safety.
This year's theme is "A Room with a Safe View." The JPMA says:
A Room with a Safe View seeks to educate parents and caregivers on hidden hazards in the home, such as unstable TV sets, hot objects, recalled products, and loose wires. No room can ever be too safe for children. Safeguarding the house is important; but it is also important to understand the proper installation and use of the newest baby products to insure the protection of all children in the household. This year’s Baby Safety Month campaign will provide information on how to keep babies and toddlers safe and sound.
There are several topics and tips surrounding infant and baby safety -- it's hard to know where to start! To help you out, we have compiled a list of the top infant safety websites, covering a wide variety of safety concerns.
