On August 8th, 2012, nursery furniture sets manufacturer Argington reacts to a study conducted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that was released on http://www.newparent.com, which reveals that infants and small children who sleep in adult beds are at a high risk of suffocation and strangulation and quite possibly death.
According to the article, prior to the release of this information in the October issue of Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, many parents and caregivers were not privy to this vital information. In a study done by the U.S. CPSC, “an average 64 deaths per year to babies under the age of 2 years placed to sleep in adult beds, including waterbeds and daybeds.” New Parent reports that these unexpected deaths are rather unpredictable and said that in those cases the parents were not aware that placing their small child in an adult bed was potentially dangerous.
Argington representative Clay Darrohn commends the study and urges parents to not place their small child in a bed meant for adults. He says, “With modern innovations in nursery bedding and nursery furniture specifically designed for infants and toddlers, it is very easy to prevent these deaths by having children safely sleep in a crib.”
Aside from urging parents to place their babies in proper bed furniture to slumber, New Parent reports that the CPSC is currently working on a project to reduce deaths by bed rails on cribs and adult beds as well. It will be less hazardous for children, therefore allowing parents and caregivers to rest easy as their children sleep.
