Even though the Consumer Protection Safety Commission has strict regulations banning the sales of drop-side cribs and over 10 million have been recalled, many cost-conscious parents remain unaware of the dangers of second-hand cribs.
Sadly, each year, about 50 suffocate or strangle to death when some element of an outdated crib design fails, as when babies become trapped between broken crib parts or when babies are laid to rest in older cribs with unsafe design.
September is Baby Safety Month and several companies and groups have been organizing awareness campaigns nationwide all month to help educate new and veteran parents of the dangers out there and about how to keep their babies safe.
As for the purchase of second-hand cribs, cost often times is a concern and issue.
To help at least one family alleviate that concern and in honor of this month of awareness Bellyitch and United States-based crib manufacturer Young America will give away one of Young America’s exquisitely designed and durable cribs, the “Built to Grow Bravo Crib” valued at $999.00!
The brand surpasses all of the US safety standards and has even achieved some 3rd party health and safety certifications from organizations like the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute and Intertek. In fact, Young America recently invested $8 million into its North Carolina manufacturing plant making it one of the most technologically advanced woodworking facilities in North America! Sweet!
