How to Choose and Use Products

  • Choose a carriage or stroller that has a base wide enough to prevent tipping, even when your baby leans over the side.

  • Use the basket underneath and don’t hang purses or shopping bags over the handles because it may cause the stroller to tip.

  • Choose a baby carrier or sling made of a durable, washable fabric with sturdy, adjustable straps.

  • Use a carrier or sling only when walking with your baby, never running or bicycling.

  • Choose a swing with strong posts, legs, and a wide stance to prevent tipping.

  • Never place your swing or bouncer on an elevated surface such as sofas, beds, tables or counter tops.

  • When choose a changing table, before leaving home, measure the length and width of the changing area available on the dresser and compare to the requirements for the add-on unit before purchasing. Check for attachment requirements.

  • When changing baby, always keep one hand on baby and use restraints.

  • It is vital the car seat/booster is appropriate for a child’s age, weight, and height.

  • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for both the vehicle and the seat.

  • Choose a crib mattress that fits snugly with no more than two fingers width, one-inch, between the edge of the mattress and the crib side.

  • Never place the crib near windows, draperies, blinds, or wall-mounted decorative accessories with long cords.

  • Choose the right gate for your needs. Before leaving home, measure the opening size at the location the gate will be used.

  • Gates with expanding pressure bars should be installed with the adjustment bar or lock side away from the baby.

  • Use waist and crotch strap every time you place a child in the high chair to prevent falls from standing up or sliding out.

  • Buy JPMA Certified products whenever possible for peace of mind that the product meets the strictest requirements in today’s marketplace.
