September 2020: Baby Safety Month


We are promoting Infant Mortality Awareness - “Celebrate Day 366 during the month of September. Now more than ever, as a result of the many challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic... It’s an initiative to support and inspire people to take action and improve the health and well-being of women, infants, children and families. 






Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association (JPMA) initiated Baby Safety Month to educate parents and caregivers on the imporance of the safe use and selection of juvenile products. Since 1991, every September has been designated as Baby Safety Month.
