With so many baby gadgets, toys, and accessories in our busy world, how do we make sure they are all safe? Today, we’ll share a recent recall you may have seen in the news and provide a few tips to help you stay up to date with the latest product safety information for your baby.

Recently, an infant bather was recalled due to fall and head injury risk. The bather brand is “Summer Infant” and the product was sold between September 2004 and November 2011. Seven injuries have been reported. For more information on which model numbers were recalled, please check the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) website at http://www.cpsc.gov/.

Safety tips
Obviously, this is not the only recall out there related to baby products. Just since the writing of this post many other products have been recalled. So how do you keep up with it all? Try the following tips:
  • Register the products that you buy so that the company can contact you if there is a recall. Many products come with registration cards and/or have online registration.
  • Sign up for regular emails about product recall and safety information from the CPSC at https://www.cpsc.gov/cpsclist.aspx.
  • Report unsafe products or incidents to the CPSC on their website.
  • When buying used products, check for safety recalls on the CPSC website before using with your baby.
  • Follow the use instructions and never use products in ways they were not intended.
  • Keep you baby close by.
