NIAGARA FALLS, CANADA (PRWEB) July 11, 2012
Cords on baby audio and video monitors can present a strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers when placed too close to cribs. As a preventative measure, LEVANA® has joined the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) of Mount Laurel, NJ, in an awareness campaign to alert parents and caregivers how to properly use and position baby monitors and other line cords in the nursery.
The safety campaign kicks off today with the launch of http://BabyMonitorSafety.org, a website dedicated to sharing baby monitor usage and safety tips. Through this portal parents and caregivers can access baby monitor safety tips, advisories and a public safety video demonstrating safe use of a baby monitor. Safety warning labels for their LEVANA baby monitor can be acquired by visiting this website and clicking on the LEVANA logo or by visiting http://mylevana.com/safety/jpma.php.
“Parents and caregivers are urged to visit http://BabyMonitorSafety.org or http://mylevana.com/safety/jpma.php to obtain a LEVANA safety warning label for their monitor,” said Rianna Reid, LEVANA’s Brand Manager. “At LEVANA, and as a parent myself, child safety is a top priority. By joining this campaign, we are educating the public while keeping infants and toddlers out of harm’s way. We encourage all parents and caregivers visit our website and watch the video for more information.”
To prevent strangulation, LEVANA and JPMA urge parents and caregivers to:
- Immediately check the location of all monitors and other products with electric cords, including those mounted on the wall, to make sure cords are out of your child’s reach.
- Place monitor and other cords at least three feet away from any part of the crib, bassinet, play yard, or other safe sleep environment.
- Never position a monitor inside or on the edge of a crib.
