September is Baby Safety Month

Every September is Baby Safety Month, sponsored by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association. This year, JPMA is helping educate parents and caregivers on how to properly choose the right juvenile products for their family’s needs and lifestyle and use them properly through a month-long campaign, Choose and Use. JPMA understands the value of keeping children safe. This year’s Baby Safety Month campaign provides knowledge and information to parents and caregivers everywhere who seek to provide the safest environment for their children.

Choose and Use focuses on the importance of properly selecting and using all juvenile products,  the importance of child supervision, following manufacturers instructions and warning labels, inspection during product use, and monitoring your child’s growth and development as they grow.
