In the recent edition of the Safety Review, CPSC’s monthly online newsletter, one article highlights all the crib recalls over the past few years — over five million cribs, play yards and bassinets. CPSC has posted a Crib Information Center on their site, not only listing all the recent sleep environment recalls, but posting additional crib safety information for parents.

One important safety reminder was left out– if you have problems with your crib — hardware loose or broken, slats that break or come loose, mattress supports that fail, or dropsides that don’t work correctly — stop using it and report it immediately to the CPSC and the manufacturer. That action might save a baby’s life. You can learn more from KID’s Safe Sleep flyer.
