Parents Warned to Keep Monitors 3 Feet Away from Cribs

Friday, July 20th, 2012

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a warning that parents should keep their babies’ monitors at least 3 feet away from their cribs, lest the children become entangled in the monitors’ cords.  Seven children have reportedly strangled to death by monitor cords since 2002.  From iVillage.com:

The organization is working with the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) on a national safety campaign about the issue, and JPMA today launched a website, babymonitorsafety.org, as well as a video and advertising campaign, to help spread the safety message. The group is also giving away free warning labels to attach to monitor cords. You can order one here.
