Use Custom Labels from Lightning Labels to Create Awareness and Safeguard Against Hidden Hazards

Lightning Labels Can Help Make A Difference This Baby Safety Month

As Baby Safety Month approaches, we are eager to provide our customers with high-quality, waterproof labels to raise awareness of hidden dangers in the home and maybe even save young lives.

September is Baby Safety Month, and Lightning Labels wants to make sure parents and product manufacturers use safety labels and stickers to keep little ones' safety top of mind at all times.

Sponsored by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, every year Baby Safety Month has a particular focus. According to the JPMA's Baby Safety Zone website, this year's theme is A Room with A Safe View, and the goal is to safeguard babies against hidden hazards found throughout the home.

Go Beyond Babyproofing with Baby Labels
Most parents understand the basics of babyproofing. Once they take care of the essentials - covering electrical outlets, locking cabinets and drawers, softening sharp edges with corner guards and putting baby labels around the house to remind adults to engage in safe behavior - they may think their homes are ready for a tiny resident. Unfortunately, hidden dangers are all around them. The JPMA listed 10 of these virtually invisible hazards, including:

  • Detergent pods: Detergent pods' bright colors and plasticky packaging make them appear extremely attractive to babies. Youngsters may easily mistake them for candy or toys, but in reality, they contain toxic chemicals that can damage babies' eyes and insides.
  • Magnets: Magnets tend to be extremely popular with kids, but that doesn't necessarily make them safe. Babies should not be allowed to play with small magnets - or even large ones with small attachments on the back - so adults should be sure to move magnets up to the top of the fridge or remove them altogether.
  • Tip-overs: Small items present the obvious danger of being swallowed by babies, but parents often don't think twice about large pieces of furniture, writing these off as being too big to cause damage. However, tip-overs present a real threat, especially once babies start to crawl and stand, using the surfaces around them for support. Televisions, bookcases and the like should be secured to walls, floors and ceilings to avoid catastrophe.

Manufacturers and retailers of detergent pods, magnets and large, free-standing household items can do their part for Baby Safety Month by ensuring the products feature clear warning labels to keep parents fully informed.

Use Waterproof Labels to Improve Safety Warning Longevity
Babies grow up fast, but not so fast that the cautionary packaging intended to keep them safe won't still benefit from waterproof labels. With water-resistant labels from Lightning Labels, manufacturers, retailers and parents alike can be confident that stickers containing critical warnings pertaining to babies' safety don't get damaged, rubbed off or ruined as a result of exposure to moisture.

"At Lightning Labels, we pride ourselves on the durability of our stickers and labels," said Scott Proctor, vice president of sales at Lightning Labels. "As Baby Safety Month approaches, we are eager to provide our customers with high-quality, waterproof labels to raise awareness of hidden dangers in the home and maybe even save young lives."
