Posted by AH on Sep 23, 2016 2:51:39 PM


September is Baby Safety Month, sponsored annually by AH client partner, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). This month-long event increases consumer awareness of safety issues and the safe selection and use of baby products. Whether you are a retailer, manufacturer, industry partner, doctor’s office, or playgroup, you are in a wonderful position to spread the word to parents and caregivers about baby safety throughout Baby Safety Month and all year long.

Baby Safety Month started in 1983 when JPMA initiated “Expectant Mother’s Day.” In 1986, it was extended to a week-long celebration, until 1991, when JPMA sponsored the first “Baby Safety Awareness Month.” Since then, every September has been designated as Baby Safety Month.
