July 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #191: Check the safety before you buy

Tip of the Week

Before you buy baby any childrensī items like bassinets, cots, beds, strollers, change tables, car seats, etc., always check the safety standards on these items and whether the particular brand that you are looking at meets these standards. Some cots are death traps for babies and simple things (for instance, does the mattress fit tightly within the cot?) can mean the difference between completely safe and extremely dangerous. Check safety magazines (eg in Australia - "Choice" magazine) for the recommended best brands - but donīt rely on these completely - check each item before you buy. The brand may be safe, but that particular item that you are looking at may have a fault in it.
