Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
In 2011 the city of Chicago banned the sale of crib bedding bumpers after research indicated that the padding used on the sides of cribs was actually hazardous for sleeping infants. Now Illinois and Maryland are considering similar bans to prevent further cases of limb entrapment, strangulation and head injury. Though crib bumper manufacturers claim the pads help to protect infants from banging their heads against the sides of cribs, health officials are concluding that the hazards far outweigh the benefits and are getting ready to impose steep fines on any manufacturer caught selling or shipping a bumper pad in Maryland and Illinois.
In anticipation of the upcoming bans and the affect it will have on consumers the Dada Baby Boutique has already created a new section on their web site for bumper-less crib bedding sets that feature high end crib bedding linens without the hazardous bumpers. Many top brand name manufacturers are already launching new lines of bumper-less bedding including Dwell Studio, Caden Lane, Olena Boyko and Persnickety. Dada Baby Boutique has been catering to discerning tots and their parents since 2009 and they take pride in providing the safest, highest quality baby products available.
For years crib bumpers were a standard for baby bedding sets but recently health officials and parents began to question the necessity of bumper pads in an infant crib. Though the padding provides a bumper to protect a small baby from harming itself against the wood frame of a crib, recent studies show that the padding is also restricting air ventilation and reducing the oxygen for babies sleeping too close to the bumper. In addition, bumpers were cited in cases of limb entrapment, strangulation, suffocation and head injury. Chicago led the way in 2011 with a ban on crib bumpers and currently the states of Illinois and Maryland are trying to pass legislation to slap fines on businesses caught shipping and selling crib bedding bumpers.
Although some have proposed leaving an infant in a crib with no accessories many parents will insist on providing crib skirts and blankets for their baby. And for those that do the Dada Baby Boutique offers a wide selection of bumper-less crib bedding sets that feature whimsical designs and high quality materials for baby boys and baby girls. Shoppers can choose from several top brand name designers that offer bumper-free crib linens including Caden Lane, Little Acorn and Olli & Lime. Sets that include bumpers can be custom ordered without the bumpers including crib bedding from New Arrivals, Maddie Boo and Little Giraffe.
The Dada Baby Boutique is a complete online baby boutique featuring high quality name brand baby products including baby toys, crib bedding, nursery room furniture, strollers, diaper bags and bassinets. The site offers terrific baby shower gifts and accessories from many top brand name manufacturers including Jellycat, North American Bear, Haba and Relics.
