More safety news for kids:

From the "Cribs For Kids" Website:

"Through compelling research by SIDS of Pennsylvania's Cribs for Kids® program, a safe-sleep environment has been identified as a key factor in reducing the rates of infant death.
Since 1998, through the donation of thousands of cribs, Cribs for Kids® has been making an impact on the rates of babies dying of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and accidental suffocation.  Cribs for Kids® is a safe-sleep education program for low-income families to help reduce the risk of injury and death of infants due to unsafe sleep environments. Cribs for Kids® currently has 250 Partner Programs in 47 states throughout the country which provide a GRACO Pack N Play® crib and educational materials regarding ‘safe sleeping’ and other important safety tips to protect your baby."
