The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) is pleased to announce Baby Safety Month 2015 –A Room With A Safe View- Safeguard Against Hidden Hazards.

Creating a safe environment for your baby is the best thing you can do to ensure the first years are happy and healthy. Raising your bundle of joy takes care and knowledge. Being more aware of the products in and around your home is just another step in preparing for baby’s arrival and as baby grows.

Did you know that some of the top hidden hazards for baby in your home are actually everyday items? For example, change floating around in pockets or purses may wind up on tables around the house, where curious children may be attracted to the shiny coins and ingest them. A great way to ensure this doesn’t happen is to assign a tray or jar for loose change and keep it out of a child’s reach.

There is an abundance of material available today for parents and caregivers looking for safety information regarding juvenile products. This year’s Baby Safety Month campaign and the information contained on the Web site provide insight into providing the safest environment for your child. Safeguarding against hidden hazards in your home goes beyond baby proofing!

About Baby Safety Month
Baby Safety Month started in 1983 when JPMA initiated “Expectant Mother’s Day.”  In 1986, it was extended to a week-long celebration, until 1991, when JPMA sponsored the first “Baby Safety Awareness Month.”  Since then, every September has been designated as Baby Safety Month.
